Princeton University suspends men’s swimming team over racist, vulgar messages

…Princeton officials are putting the men’s swimming and diving season on hold over offensive messages linked to the team. An anonymous complaint earlier this week alerted school officials to vulgar, misogynistic and racist content on the team’s listserv, university spokesman John Cramer said Friday.“The behavior that we have learned about is simply unacceptable. It is antithetical to the values of our athletic program and of the University, and will not be tolerated,” Princeton Athletics Director Mollie Marcoux Samaan said in a statement released by the school.
