FBI Investigating Racist Emails Sent to Jewish & Black Students at University of Michigan

The FBI is helping investigate who sent racist emails to students using what appeared to be a university account.

The emails, sent out Tuesday from an email account that looked like it belonged to a professor of computer science and engineering, attacked black and Jewish students, MLive reports. Professor J. Alex Halderman said he did not sent the emails.

A university spokesman said the message involves spoofing, which means someone created an email that looked like it came from another account.

M President Mark Schlissel tweeted, “I condemn the hateful messages sent tonight. DPSS & ITS are investigating as spoofing/hacking.”
