Ohio students charged with hateful graffiti targeting everyone but straight, white, Christian men

Police charged two students in connection with offensive graffiti discovered over the weekend on a residence hall bulletin board at Miami University.

A spokeswoman for the university in Oxford, Ohio, declined to describe what the defaced bulletin board said, but she said the content was “offensive to many groups of people,” reported the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Students said the graffiti, which was discovered in Wells Hall, contained racist, sexist, anti-Semitic, and homophobic statements.

“There are people in our hall that were offended by the comments and it affected them personally,” said Shannon Reilly, a first-year student who lives in the building.

The graffiti was discovered after students returned from spring break at the all-freshman residence hall.

Similar graffiti was found at two off-campus fraternity houses at the university, but Miami officials said they don’t believe the incidents are connected.

“I am deeply disappointed that any of our students would choose deliberately to behave in such a reprehensible way, and with so obvious an intent to offend or hurt,” said university president David Hodge in a statement.

The students, who have not yet been identified, also face university discipline.

Trump defenders argued his latest tweets weren’t really racist — but he just completely undercut their arguments

Donald Trump in coal helmet thumbs up

If you try to defend President Donald Trump, you will always end up having the rug pulled out from underneath you. It's a law of nature.

And yet, so many of the president's allies have failed to learn this simple lesson. So when Trump launched a new attack at progressive Democratic lawmakers that was one of his most obviously racist smears, inevitably, some of his defenders tried to deny the obvious truth.

His screed attacked a group of women who have come to define the left wing of the Democratic caucus, which includes Reps. Ilhan Omar (MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Rashida Talib (MI), and Ayanna Pressley (MA). Though only Omar is an immigrant (she was a refugee from Somalia as a child), Trump seemed to assume all four women of color weren't born in the United States, and most egregiously, he suggested they should "go back" to other countries:

The two candidates vying to become Britain's next prime minister both condemned on Monday US President Donald Trump's xenophobic tweets about progressive Democrat congresswomen as "totally offensive" and "totally unacceptable".

But front-runner Boris Johnson and Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt refused to call the tweets racist when pressed to do so during their last debate before next week's announcement of who will succeed Prime Minister Theresa May.

May's spokesman had earlier said that the outgoing leader's view was that Trump's comments were "completely unacceptable".

On Monday Trump doubled down on a series of his tweets from the day before urging the four congresswomen of colour to "go back" to the countries they came from.
