More than 200 Purdue University students, faculty and staff have rallied against racism to protest racially charged vandalism found recently at the campus' Black Cultural Center.

A mix of black, white, Asian and Hispanic men and women marched Monday to the steps of Hovde Hall, which houses the offices of Purdue's top administrators.

The Journal & Courier reports the protesters shouted "This is what diversity looks like!" and other slogans during their rally. The protesters are upset by a recent incident in which the words "white supremacy" were found written on a mirror inside the Black Cultural Center.

School officials say that incident was not an act of vandalism but an unintentional transfer of words from a sticky note during an educational seminar.
