FBI Investigated Oberlin College Hate Crimes

On March 7, the FBI began investigating Oberlin College after a series of hate crimes brought discomfort to the campus. There were racist slurs written on posters, and swastikas and “Whites Only” messages drawn over water fountains. It was also reported that someone dressed in a Ku Klux Klan-like hood and robe was walking near the school’s African Heritage House.
