St. Louis University rallies against hate attacks

Some students at St. Louis University say they want to stand against racism, after two acts of hate on campus in two weeks.

Some students at St. Louis University say they want to stand against racism, after two acts of hate on campus in two weeks.

Hundreds of students attended a vigil Sunday night to respond to the acts and urge campus officials to take action.

Two weeks ago, someone placed candles in the shape of a swastika on campus. On Saturday night, someone posted an obscenity-filled message that included “Nazis rule” on a big screen inside the Busch Student Center after a concert.

KSDK-TV reports campus officials say a disciplinary hearing is set for the students believed to be responsible for making the swastika. The weekend incident is still under investigation.
