BREAKING: Anti-black fliers distributed, found on campus
A handful of racist fliers were found in Armstrong Commons and distributed across SMU’s campus the morning of Nov. 15.
NBC 5 also reported the fliers were found in the Dedman Life Sciences building on campus.
The flier, titled “Why White Women Shouldn’t Date Black Men,” warns white women about the dangers of dating a black man.
Some of the reasons include “[They’re] more likely to abuse you,” “have STDs,” and that “your kids probably wouldn’t be smart.”
The flier also includes collaged images blonde, white women smiling next to straight-faced, black men.
Lauren Cove, residential community director of Armstrong Commons and member of the Residential Life and Student Housing DEAL committee, designed to promote diversity within Armstrong Commons resident hall, denied to comment on the incident.
At this time, there is no clear motive who distributed the fliers or why.
A similar incident occurred at the University of Michigan on September 2016, where copies of the same were found.
The Daily Campus will provide more information once it becomes available.
