    BERLIN, Ohio — Classes at Oberlin College were canceled on Monday after a series of “hate-related incidents” on campus, the school announced on its website.

    Officials say the latest problem occurred Monday morning near the African Heritage House, where a person wearing a hood and robe resembling the KKK was spotted.

    “As I was driving in my car, I saw, what seemed to be someone in KKK paraphernalia walking around,” said Sunceray Tavler, a student who reported the incident.

    That event, in addition to other challenging issues that have faced the community in recent weeks, forced school administrators to suspend formal classes and all non-essential activities on Monday.

    “These events have been going on for a month. It started with some graffiti, some swastikas being drawn on buildings, posters are being defaced, people are getting very upset,” said A.D. Hogan, senior class president.

    Instead of class, students were encouraged to participate in a series of discussions planned Monday.

    “I came to Oberlin believing in the progressive history of Oberlin,” said student Warren Harding. “The first to admit African-Americans and women. But still realizing the challenges that these marginalized groups have had at Oberlin.”

    Campus police are still investigating. Classes will resume Tuesday.

    Oh the horror.

    The KKK in Tulsa used to be part of the Democrat party, may still be for all I know.

    Really?


    Really?! You're going to stop classes... campus life, over an individual? Are you also going to stop charging students tuition, until you solve it?

    However, 50 Black Panthers could be roaming about and no one would have given them a 2nd look.

    Sounds like someone needed to avoid a test in Pottery design or some other heavy hitting class...

    Not a bad guess, but Oberlin is a good school and does have "real" courses and majors as well. My goddaughter goes there (and loves it).

    Not that I'm defending the Black Panthers, but the Klan does have the whole traditional garb that they wear when burning crosses and attempting to intimidate others. It makes them easier to identify. It's hard to pick a Black Panther out of a crowd by the clothes he wears, unless he's got a t-shirt on that advertises the affiliation.

    Well, in all fairness, they'd have tenure.

    How old is that picture?

    It's a look, but it's not a uniform. If the group broke up amongst a crowd, they would blend in unless the crowd was all white. Louis' guys with the suits and bow ties would probably stand out more.

    Really? These guys would "just blend into a crowd"?
