Racist graffiti was discovered at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill, the second such incident this month at the East Bay school. 

The message was directed at Middle Eastern and black students, suggesting that these minority groups should leave the country, according to a statement from the college.

It was found on Monday and revealed in an email from college President Susan Lamb to students, faculty and staff on Tuesday. 

The graffiti was found in the bathroom of the building for business and foreign language studies. 

More than 100 students walked out of class earlier this month when African Americans were targeted in another offensive message left in a restroom. 

A task force is investigating the more recent incident while counselors were made available to support students, the college announced.
