WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A University spokeswoman says police have ruled out criminal activity in a possibly racist note left in Purdue's Black Cultural Center.
As we previously reported, over the weekend, the words "white supremacy" were found written on a mirror inside the cultural center.
Purdue police were investigating it as an act of vandalism until they determined the incident had actually been conducted as part of an educational seminar.
Purdue spokeswoman Jeanne Norberg says the writing was not directly on the mirror, but appeared to be transferred through an adhesive when another object was attached to the surface.
Police interviewed various users of the room at the center and determined an instructor conducting an interactive seminar wrote the words on a large sticky note attached to the mirror during a discussion.
A group of students that believed this was just another in a line of racially charged incidents on campus in the past few years. The group, spearheaded by Black Graduate Student Association President Tyrell Conner, held a march through campus Monday morning in response to the words found in the cultural center.
