UC Santa Cruz reports racial slur on bulletin board

SANTA CRUZ — A racial slur apparently aimed at Black individuals was found carved into a UC Santa Cruz bulletin board this week, an action classified as hate speech, according to university officials.

The vandalism was reported at 3:50 p.m. Tuesday at Oakes College’s E Block on Oakes Road, according to UCSC crime logs. Police did not immediately know when the vandalism first occurred and had no immediate perpetrator leads, according to the log.

Maintenance officials were asked to remove the entire bulletin board after a photograph of the vandalism was taken.
