BU Investigates Racist and Nazi-Themed Posters

May 4, 2016

Boston University is investigating posters that appeared on campus this week, one of them saying “Black Lives Don’t Matter,” another saying “Atomwaffen Division Massachusetts,” and another featuring an image of a Paul Revere-like figure shouting, “The Nazis Are Coming!” The university's president, Robert A. Brown, released a letter to the campus, calling the posters “a reminder that the human capacity for hate is deeply rooted and never as far from our daily lives as we would like or hope. We also know that the human capacity for healing and renewal in a spirit of generosity and understanding is deeply rooted.”
