University investigates racial slurs in student dorm
FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) — Officials at a Massachusetts university are investigating after racial slurs were found written in a student dorm.
Eunice Bwambok, a junior at Framingham State University, says she found racial slurs written in marker on her dorm room door Sunday. The finding comes two days after she and her roommate found a similar slur written on a student union flier that was taped to their dorm room door.
The students say they feel targeted and scared to sleep in their room.
WBZ-TV reports FSU President Javier Cevallos said Sunday the university is doing everything within its power to determine who is responsible and hold them accountable. Officials are looking into a connection between the two racist messages.
The university is holding a public forum to discuss the messages Monday.
