KKK Fliers at Clemson; Racist Email at Princeton

October 11, 2016

Students at Clemson University found fliers recruiting members for the Ku Klux Klan Monday, and many posted photographs to social media (at right) and said that they were alarmed. WSPA News reported that fliers were also found in the local county at locations not connected to the university. An exalted cyclops (leader) of a KKK chapter told WSPA, “By going out and distributing our literature we’re letting people know we are very much still relevant. We are very much still here.”

At Princeton University, officials announced that they are investigating racist email messages sent to some students and faculty members (and some at other colleges). On social media those who have received the emails say they refer to current campus diversity efforts as promoting "white genocide."
