YPSILANTI, Mich. ― More anti-black graffiti has been discovered on the Eastern Michigan University campus.

The university says the graffiti was discovered Monday spray-painted on the exterior of Ford Hall. It says the graffiti was immediately removed.

The Ann Arbor News reports university President Jim Smith said in a message emailed to the campus community that the incident is receiving the full attention of campus police. He says a reward for information about similar graffiti that appeared in late September has been doubled to $10,000 and applies to the latest incident as well.

The earlier graffiti led to a silent protest march in early October by dozens of students, faculty and staff members.
