MIT Diversity Displays Vandalized

In one case, a cardboard cutout of Abraham Lincoln was replaced by a cutout of croc hunter Steve Irwin.


Two displays at MIT's MLK Diversity Exhibit were vandalized last week, the Tech reports.

One presentation about the Palestinian/Israeli conflict was removed in its entirety. The other display—which featured cardboard cutouts of Abraham Lincoln, Barack Obama, and Dr. King—was "altered": The Lincoln cutout was replaced with one of "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin.

Officials are investigating.
