Racial Slur Found on a Sidewalk at Arizona State University

The word “nigger” was found scrawled on a sidewalk on the campus of Arizona State University.

A university spokesperson said in a statement that “as an inclusive institution, we condemn any racist activity or symbolism in all its forms. If any individuals involved are affiliated with the university, they will be held accountable for their actions.”

The university’s Black African Coalition noted that due to current racial tensions in the country “it is very likely that incidents like this will continue to happen around our campuses and the surrounding area. It is important that our students feel comfortable, safe, and wanted at Arizona State University.”
