Racist Graffiti Found Written in Chalk on Sidewalks at the University of Oregon

Racist slogans were found written in chalk on sidewalks at the University of Oregon. The slogans included “Deport Them All” and “End White Guilt.”

Marcus Langford, assistant dean of students at the University of Oregon, said that “the nature of community is one where people feel accepted for who they are. Existing in the place where that is constantly being challenged and called into question can be mentally and emotionally taxing. It’s important that all members of our community see these actions as problematic and work to ensure they are addressed.”

African Americans are just 2 percent of the undergraduate student body at the University of Oregon, according to the latest data from the U.S. Department of Education.
