SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSTM) – A sit-in protesting a string of racist incidents continued Sunday at Syracuse University.
Dozens of students began the protest Wednesday in response to racist graffiti found in a dormitory.
The latest incident took place Saturday night when members of a fraternity allegedly used racial slurs against an African-American student.
That incident prompted the university to suspend all fraternity social activities.
“I was surprised at first, but it kept on happening. I got used to it,” says freshman Fatouma Tabroy. “I know it’s bad, I shouldn’t get used to it, but it happens so often.”
