She had just returned from spring break and was greeted with horrific threats and slurs.
According to KRISTV, a black student at Texas A&M Corpus Christi found racial slurs and threats written all over her apartment, left there by individuals who apparently broke in while she was gone.
A scrawl on one of the apartment doors showed a character like that from a hangman game, only next to it were the chilling words, “White Power. [We’re] coming for you.”
Another scrawl read, “Die n—ger. Where is your protector? White Power.”
“I think the community ought to be hurt by this. I think that we all ought to take it very seriously,” Corpus Christi Police Chief Floyd Simpson said at a news conference Monday.
According to the news station, the complex in which the apartment is located is gated and seems to have a security camera, but it is still unclear how the vandals broke in.
“Quite frankly, we think we have a bead on some people who may be involved in this. The best thing they can do is come forward and have a discussion about this, and let us bring this to a logical conclusion,” the police chief said. The individuals responsible could be charged with burglary, criminal mischief and making terroristic threats.
As for the student, she was relocated to a nearby complex.
