White supremacist messages appear at UManitoba, numerous US campuses

November 6, 2018

CBC has learned that sheets of paper adorned with the phrase “It’s okay to be white” appeared at the University of Manitoba last week. The Women’s and Gender Studies program also received faxes with the same message. Additionally, security footage captured a costumed individual scribbling derogatory messages about Islam on several walls. UManitoba has condemned the actions, and President David Barnard stated that the posters are part of a "a co-ordinated international effort by neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups." According to Inside Higher Ed, the posters have also appeared at nine American campuses over the last week-and-a-half. CBC | Inside Higher Ed
