A complaint is being filed with the Kentucky NAACP following an act of racism against two Western Kentucky University students. 

Two students who live at The Crown apartment complex say they were victims of a hate crime this week. 

The African-American females say they found feces smeared on the doors and windows of their apartment unit and a note that contained a racial slur followed by the words “make America great again.”

"We believe certain actions and statements from our country’s leadership during the past year has emboldened some individuals and groups to believe that this type of behavior is both acceptable and encouraged," said the Bowling Green-Warren County NAACP in a statement.

Management at the apartment complex say similar acts have occurred there before.  The incident was reported to police and extra patrols will be in place nearby.
