A Black student was responsible for racist graffiti at an Albion College dorm, according to campus police.

Pictures of racist and anti-semitic graffiti surfaced on the City Watch NEWS Group Facebook page last week. The photos included messages like “white power,” “Die N—-s,” and “KKK.”

MLive.com reported on Thursday that Albion Chief of Public Safety Scott Kipp said the suspect, a 21-year-old Black male, was brought in for questioning on April 6 and admitted to creating most of the graffiti.

According to Kipp, video evidence corroborated the student’s confession. In a statement Wednesday, the Michigan-based college said the student acted alone.
