Syracuse police make arrest for graffiti supporting campus protests over racist incidents

There have been at least 16 racist and bias-related episodes since Nov. 6, prompting protests and a student sit-in at one of the campus buildings. The racist and anti-Semetic events have included a swastika drawn in a snowbank near an apartment complex where students live and the alleged sharing of a white supremacist manifesto on Monday at a school library.

The school’s Department of Public Safety also said Thursday it is investigating four new incidents, two of which occurred at a residence hall where graffiti was found featuring derogatory language toward African Americans, a third that happened at a residence hall and involved “anti-Native American language,” and a fourth that took place at an art facility and included graffiti that used a racist slur toward Asians.
