Sacramento State President Robert Nelsen notified the campus Thursday of an incident of possibly anti-semitic graffiti being found on campus after a student sent in a picture to authorities.

In the picture, a light pole on campus that had the word “Jew” spray-painted on it is seen. It remains unknown as to who wrote this and when, as Nelsen received the photo on Wednesday.

Nelsen wrote that “it is important not to give people or groups attention for graffiti or hateful messages,” but that he still felt he needed to notify the campus.

“We are a splintered nation, but we cannot be a splintered Hornet Family,” wrote Nelsen. “We must learn from the past and refute hate and bigotry on our campus and in our community.”
