Police at Oberlin College in Ohio are investigating who is behind a series of racist and homophobic incidents on campus.

The problems culminated in a reported sighting early Monday morning of someone dressed as a member of the Ku Klux Klan on campus.

Oberlin cancelled classes yesterday to hold teach-ins and a “day of solidarity” against hate speech.
