EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan State University students have held a march to advocate an end to racism amid a probe into possible racist actions on campus.

The Lansing State Journal reports (http://bit.ly/poGceQ) hundreds of students marched Thursday in East Lansing. They carried signs that read "Love knows no colors" and "Zero tolerance for racism."

School officials said this week they were investigating after students reported finding a racial slur scrawled on a dry-erase board and written on a wall at separate dorms. There also was a report of a student finding a small black doll hanging from green beads.

A town hall-style meeting that drew a large crowd was held earlier this week about the incidents.
