South Carolina College Student Suspended Over Racial Slur

Saturday, 04 Apr 2015 11:58 AM

The University of South Carolina says it has suspended a student over a photo showing a racial slur being written on a board in a campus study room.

Multiple media outlets reported President Harris Pastides announced the suspension Friday. Pastides said the unidentified student also faces university code of conduct investigations. He said the school's Board of Trustees also endorsed the action.

A school spokesman wouldn't comment on whether the student faces expulsion.

The photo shows a white female student writing the slur directed at blacks on a whiteboard and blaming them, among other reasons, for university's wireless poor Internet connections.

While not identified by the school, the student's name was shared on social media posts that included angry comments about the slur and the student.
