IU Hispanic center target of racial harassment
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — A Hispanic cultural center at Indiana University's Bloomington campus is planning a town hall meeting in response to apparent racial harassment.
La Casa director Lillian Casillas tells The Herald-Times (http://bit.ly/oD0Xp1 ) a staff member discovered a newspaper with "criminals deport" written next to a picture of a Latino McDonald's employee. Magnetic letters on a refrigerator had also been arranged to spell, "You need to leave."
The incidents last week come after someone threw rocks through the windows of Jewish centers near the IU campus last year. An IU employee was later arrested and fired after he was accused in one of the incidents.
Casillas says anyone could have walked into the Hispanic center. The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday at La Casa.
