Graffiti that appeared to be a swastika was removed from a Bowie State University campus in Maryland.

Police removed the image, the school said.

Authorities are currently investigating the matter. The school confirmed it via Twitter on the night of Nov. 12.

Bowie State said it has organized a rally over the alleged hate speech.

The incident comes amid protests over alleged racial mistreatment at several universities across the U.S. Protesters, along with the football team, at the University of Missouri demanded the removal of school president Tim Wolfe. He resigned from his post earlier this week. At the university, there were reports that someone used fecal matter to smear a swastika in a bathroom on campus. Some black students also said they were victimized.
