Pictures of racist and anti-semitic graffiti surfaced on the City Watch NEWS Group Facebook page last week. The photos included messages like “white power,” “Die N—-s,” and “KKK.”
MLive.com reported on Thursday that Albion Chief of Public Safety Scott Kipp said the suspect, a 21-year-old Black male, was brought in for questioning on April 6 and admitted to creating most of the graffiti.
According to Kipp, video evidence corroborated the student’s confession. In a statement Wednesday, the Michigan-based college said the student acted alone.
“The student, who was acting alone, acknowledged their [sic] responsibility for these incidents,” a tweet read.
“They [sic] have been immediately removed from campus and placed on temporary suspension while we conduct a full investigation as part of our student judicial process.”
Albion College added: “[W]e know the acts of racism that have occurred this week are not about one particular person or one particular incident. We know that there is a significant history of racial pain and trauma on campus and we are taking action to repair our community.”
