AMHERST, Mass. (AP) - University of Massachusetts police are investigating after racist graffiti was found scrawled on three dorm room doors last weekend.

The graffiti called for killing blacks and Mexicans, and was found on doors in the Southwest residential area of the Amherst campus.

Students who attended a meeting Wednesday with Chancellor Kumble Subbaswamy said they feel threatened and some said it’s not the first time they had experienced racism on the sprawling campus.

The chancellor said the school is doing all it can to find the perpetrators.

Student Jonathan Romero tells The Daily Hampshire Gazette (https://bit.ly/1F2nyc8 ) his room in the Washington high-rise dorm was targeted. Romero, who is Honduran, says he does not feel safe, although he turned down on offer to move out of his room and into the campus hotel.
