White Supremacist Posters Put Up on Campus of Indiana University
Filed in Campus Racial Incidents on February 14, 2017
White supremacist fliers were posted on the office doors of faculty members of color at Indiana University in Bloomington. The university is working with the police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to identity who put up the fliers. The fliers portrayed the message of Identity Evropa, a White supremacist group that maintains a post office box in Oakdale, California.
Lauren Robel, provost at Indiana University, issued a statement that said: “Posted under the cover of darkness, targeting the office doors of faculty members of color or scholars of race and ethnicity, these fliers were clearly meant to intimidate, threaten, scare, and provoke anger among faculty, staff, students, and visitors. Our university rejects all forms of racism, bigotry, and discrimination. These are in direct conflict with our core values and simply will not be tolerated. Our campus unequivocally rejects the cowardice and ugliness that this group’s action represents.”
