Kansas State University Police are investigating after a racist note was left on a student’s on-campus apartment door.

K-State newspaper The Collegian reports that sophomore Brodrick Burse returned to his home Monday night, finding the sign with a racial slur on the door frame of his Jardine Apartments residence. Burse posted an image of the note on his Twitter page @whoisbrodrick, and it generated more visibility thereafter.

KSU Police ask anyone with information to contact them at 785-532-6412.
