Michigan college cancels classes after racist graffiti found

FLINT, Mich. (AP) Classes have been canceled for the day at Kettering University in Michigan after racist graffiti was found at a residence hall.

The Flint Journal reports that letters sent to staff, faculty and students note at least two recent cases of racist and profane graffiti at Thompson Hall on the school's Flint campus.

The school canceled classes Tuesday as school and law enforcement officials investigate. The school says the graffiti reported Thursday and Sunday was immediately removed.
