After a “positive” Black Lives Matter message on a whiteboard inside a University of Iowa residence hall was defaced, administrators not only launched a police investigation, but also offered counseling to those distressed by the incident.
“On the evening of Friday, May 6, 2016, someone wrote offensive drawings on a whiteboard. The drawings were racially biased and defaced what was a positive Black Lives Matter statement with hate-speech directed at Black and African American people as an ethnic and racial group,” according to a memo to students provided to The College Fix by the campus public affairs office.
“If you have been impacted by this incident, and would like to talk more about it, feel free to contact me directly so that we can meet,” continued Monica Marcelo, assistant director of residence education, who penned the memo.
