University of Massachusetts Dorms Hit by Racist Vandals

Investigators at the University of Massachusetts are searching for vandals who recently scrawled hate messages on the walls of dorm buildings, according to the Daily Hampshire Gazette.

School Chancellor Kumble Subbaswamy released a statement Thursday condemning the messages that called for killing Black and Mexican people, the report says. The messages began appearing over the past week.

“Such expressions of hate and intolerance have no place on our campus,” the chancellor said in a campus email, the paper states. “We condemn language intended to marginalize or make any member of our community unsafe, and we will aggressively investigate this matter for criminal and administrative reviews.”

Josh Odam, secretary of diversity for the Student Government Association, said he found “Kill These [N—–rs]!!” written in all capital letters on his door. He wrote an op-ed about the episode Thursday in the Daily Collegian student newspaper.
