GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Two students have confessed after “hateful, racialized and profane” statements were found written in snow on vehicles at Calvin College Monday morning, according to a college spokesperson.

The students will go through internal disciplinary procedures, the spokesperson said.

Calvin College President Michael K. Le Roy issued statements on the college’s Facebook page Monday about the incidents.

“Hateful acts such as these violate the image of God in all people, exhibit the sin and brokenness we experience in human community and have no place at Calvin College,” Le Roy said in a statement.

A photo posted on Facebook early Monday morning shows the words “white power” written in snow next to a drawing of a swastika.

    It would be less hateful if it said black lives matter I take it ? or as I like to say black lies matter. White lives matter too

      It would be less harmful, because #BlackLivesMatter is not founded upon the belittling of other humans based solely off of appearance or the genocide of humankind, rather to rise a group of people up to the equal pedestal of so called #AllLivesMatter.

        oh so BLM were not chanting death to police and white people ? BLM didn’t boo and interrupt a speech because the politician said all lives matter not just blacks ?
