Tom Weston, lay leader at the First United Methodist Church, talks about the recent racial incidents Tuesday that occurred at Oberlin College in Oberlin, Ohio. Oberlin College says it canceled classes after a report that a person wearing a hooded robe resembling Ku Klux Klan gear was seen near an African heritage building. It calls it the latest in a series of hate-related incidents on campus. Racist graffiti were reported on campus last month.
