Albion College in Albion, Michigan, told Breitbart News that “the individual responsible for the racist graffiti” in a dormitory on campus “is a student of color.” The incident makes for another hate hoax carried out on a college campus.
A 21-year-old black student allegedly admitted responsibility for most of the racist and antisemitic graffiti that was discovered in a dorm stairwell on campus after Albion police brought him in for questioning on Tuesday, according to a report by MLive.
The report added that police said video evidence from Albion’s Campus Safety Department confirms the statements made by the student.
The graffiti in question had included multiple references to the KKK, as well as a Star of David with the numbers “666” written across it. Some of the words graffitied included phrases such as, “KKK white power,” “Albion is racist we do exist KKK,” and “Die N*****s please!”
Albion College told Breitbart News that “the individual responsible for the racist graffiti in Mitchell Towers is a student of color.”
“The student was immediately removed from campus and placed on temporary suspension while we conduct a full investigation as part of our student judicial process,” the college continued.
“All evidence has been turned over to law enforcement in cooperation with the ongoing criminal investigation,” Albion added. “We do not have any additional information to provide at this time as the student judicial process and criminal investigation proceed.”
In response to the graffiti, more than 450 Albion students and staffers had marched across campus on Monday to boycott and protest the school over the injustices they said are happening at the college, according to a report by WWMT-TV.
Chief Scott Kipp said that once the investigation into the student responsible for the graffiti is complete, the information will be submitted to the Calhoun County Prosecutor’s Office for any charges related to the incident, according to MLive.
