Racist Hate Message Found on the Campus of Kansas State University

Kansas State University recently opened its new Multicultural Student Center on campus. Weeks later, racist messages were found written on a white board at the center.

The message displayed at the center asked “Why do you celebrate Black History Month?” The answers to this question found on February 26 during Black History Month said “What history?” and “Because it’s a joke.”

The university issued a statement that read in part, “These actions are not in keeping with our values and do not support our goals of creating and sustaining a climate of respect for all students. The university condemns white nationalism as being in opposition to our values.  The hurtful act will not distract the center from its mission of bringing people together, supporting marginalized students and their opportunity to express themselves.”

According to published reports, many students were not satisfied with the university’s response.
