Once again, an American college has paralyzed itself over racist vandalism before waiting for the investigation to conclude. Kettering University in Flint, Michigan, closed on Tuesday after racist graffiti was found in a residence hall. Further, the administration chose to hold an emergency campus meeting.
University President Robert McMahan said he was “deeply upset” by the graffiti that reportedly targeted black students, and for the “hurt this has caused to our entire campus community.”
Recent history has shown these types of incidents on college campuses rarely are committed by white nationalists. The majority are later revealed to have been perpetrated as hoaxes, or “false flag” operations designed to promote a progressive political cause.
