Racial slurs were found written in snow on car hoods in South Oakland Sunday night, WPXI reported.

According to WPXI, a Pitt student, Mara Keen, found the n-word written on multiple cars on McKee Place, Louisa Street and Atwood Street.

This incident is not the first case of offensive messages written in snow in Oakland. More than a dozen swastikas were found drawn on car hoods in Oakland last January, prompting more than 600 people on Facebook to share a post denouncing white supremacy.
