In one incident, a White female student posted a Snapchat image of herself in blackface on Monday with the caption, “Who needs White when Black lives matter.”
Another racist image circulated among students the next day. It showed a skeleton wearing an African dashiki hanging from a dorm room ceiling, suggesting a lynching. The skeleton had a “TRUMP, Make America Great Again” flag displayed next to it.
“We are tired of the blatant racism that is so comfortably shown to us on Xavier’s campus,” a Black student told the News.
She continued: “From racism/prejudice reports being brushed off to being told that ‘it wasn’t meant that way.’ From threats being made on yik yak (an anonymous twitter) to sly comments being made as we walk by. We are tired. This is not okay.”
In an email to the Xavier community, the university’s president, Michael Graham, called the incidents “racist actions” and said they’re “unacceptable on our campus.”
Graham continued: “When one of us falls short, we all fall short.”
WCPO reported that the university is investigating the incidents.
Kelly Leon, the university’s communications director, told WCPO that any student accused violating the school’s code of conduct would face a “student conduct process.”
