Yesterday we posted a piece about racist graffiti at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. We now hear from the University’s Chancellor that “an individual has been charged today in court in connection with his alleged involvement in two recent incidents where racist, intimidating messages were scrawled on residence hall doors.”

Here is a copy of Chancellor Subbaswamy’s email to the UMass community.
