(Newser) – Harvard University is reviewing its security procedures after black students and professors charged that they're being unfairly targeted, the Boston Globe reports. A six-member committee will review the campus force following a number of incidents, including one in which a black professor was stopped when he was mistaken for a robbery suspect.
