IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - The University of Iowa is investigating after racist graffiti was found scrawled on a library wall at the school.
The graffiti included a crude outline of the state of Iowa inside a rough outline of Africa. The word “Nigeria” _ misspelled to include a racial slur _ was written above the drawing. Someone posted a photo of it Wednesday on Twitter, and the university responded with its own tweet.
The university called it a “hateful message” and said it “does not reflect the values of our institution.” It said anyone with information about the graffiti should contact university police.
