WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Purdue officials are investigating anti-Barack Obama graffiti found on the West Lafayette campus this week.
An obscenity and the president-elect's name were painted on a tree in an area near the Class of 1950 Lecture Hall, where black students often gather.
Other graffiti was found chalked on campus sidewalks and buildings.
In a letter to the campus, Purdue President France Cordova called the graffiti "deeply offensive."
"Such conduct is reprehensible and wholly out of character with Purdue's long tradition of fellowship and mutual respect," Cordova said in the letter.
Purdue police Lt. Fred Davis said officers are trying to determine if a crime was committed, since First Amendment rights were involved.

Hate is hate, BDS has been the cause of some of the most vile, sick, hate filled death wishes for the entire Bush family I have ever seen, and yet NOW it is newsworthy?
This is BS.
Anti-Bush or Anti-GOP sentiments are A-OK.
Now, it’s “heresy.”
Where was the protest over the Sarah Palin is a C*$t shirts?
Give me an effing break.
Is it me or is it strange the media calls Obama "the president-elect" when they refer to President Bush simply as "Bush"?
70+ days UNTIL the fuhrer takes office and already the 1st Amendment is being shredded.
Tch, tch, tch... don ja just hate it
I’m sure it will receive the same “attention” as did the thousands of “Fxxx Bush” signs throughout the nation and on many University “quads”....
Considering hate speech against Bush was protected under the first amendment, I wonder if that 1st amendment will be eliminated now?
Every campus has bush hate graffiti in the country. I saw this myself at UNH
This is troublesome.
Will any criticism of Obama be viewed as a potential hate crime?
There are security cameras everywhere these days. This was very likely caught on camera. If you don’t hear anything more about the matter, assume that the perpetrators don’t fit the MSM narrative.
I have noticed that for a long time, failing to show respect to the President or the office he holds.
It’s subtle, but fully intentional.
I wonder how long it will be before the standards enforced by campus speech codes are a part of federal law?
Big Bro is definitely on the go.
We have two sets of standards in the United States. Disrespect a Republican, move ahead two squares. Disrespect a Democrat, take your icon off the board.
Anti Obmama = “Graffiti”
Anti Bush = “Art”
Got it. Thanks for clearing that up, Purdue.
Another fake, like all the nooses.
I never heard a peep over the “Palin is a c**t” shirts, so the corrupt Media need not bother me with this.
