Racial Slurs Found Inside the apartment of black college student
A black college student at Texas A&M Corpus Christi, returned home from spring break to a slew of racial slurs written all over her apartment.
The female student, according to KRIS-TV, has been “relocated” to nearby apartment complex while officials investigate.
The student found racist phrases like “White Power. Where [sic] coming for you,” and “Die (N-word),” throughout the apartment. Another phrase asked, “Where is your protector? White Power.”
Corpus Christi Police Chief Floyd Simpson called a news conference Monday to discuss the situation. Simpson said he wanted to make the incident public to make sure residents and students understand it should be taken seriously.
“I think the community ought to be hurt by this,” Simpson said. “I think that we all ought to take it very seriously.”
The TAMUCC student said, “I’m actually shocked. I’m very surprised. We don’t really have a race problem at this school, so I’m really surprised, and I don’t think it was somebody from this school who did it.”
The police are looking for those responsible. They will likely be charged with burglary, criminal mischief and terroristic threats.
“Quite frankly, we think we have a lead on some people who may be involved in this. The best thing they can do is come forward, and have a discussion about this, and let us bring this to a logical conclusion,” said Chief Simpson.
