A college student in Oklahoma has been temporarily suspended amid racially charged outbursts at schools and universities across the country following Donald Trump's presidential election.

The Associated Press and other media outlets identified more than 20 reports of racist incidents at schools since Tuesday, including a group chat aimed at black freshmen at Trump's alma mater, the University of Pennsylvania.

UPenn President Amy Gutmann said the chat contained "violent, racist and thoroughly disgusting images and messages," and Penn is "appalled" its students were added to the GroupMe account.

She said UPenn police have been working with the FBI.

University of Oklahoma President David Boren said in a statement the student at his school responsible has been temporarily suspended.

The school will investigate further.
