White supremacist flyers found on Indiana University campus


INDIANA---The University of Indiana and the FBI are investigating after flyers were left on doors across the Bloomington campus by a group that identifies itself with white supremacy. IU Provost and Executive Vice President Lauren Robel posted a statement on Monday saying the flyers were found on the office doors of faculty members of color and scholars of race and ethnicity. “Posted under the cover of darkness, targeting the office doors of faculty members of color or scholars of race and ethnicity, these flyers were clearly meant to intimidate, threaten, scare, and provoke anger among faculty, staff, students, and visitors,” said Robel. The group that's taking credit for the posters said on its social media page that it had done the same thing on at least 30 campuses across the country. [link]
