BALTIMORE (WJZ/AP) — Maryland police are investigating several cases of anti-Semitic graffiti at two college campuses.
At the University of Maryland Baltimore County, the graffiti — including a carved swastika — has shown up in classrooms, bathrooms and elevators. Similar graffiti has been found on bathroom walls at the University of Maryland College Park.
“I’m really surprised, of course it hurt because it’s a racial slur, but at the same time things happen on college campuses and I think we can get through this,” one student said.
“No room for that here, don’t accept it,” another student said. “That shouldn’t happen here, we should be accepting and welcoming to everybody.”
A spokesperson for UMBC called the graffiti “an affront to our campus values.” The school is calling on students to report any offensive material to police so they can document it before having it removed.
