Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas is enduring a racial incident that has rocked students on the campus. Fliers with the statement “Why White Women Shouldn’t Date Black Men” have been circulating around the school with university officials taking aims to address the matter.
From SMU’s The Daily Campus site:
Multiple racist fliers were distributed and found in Armstrong Residential Commons and across SMU’s campus the morning of Nov. 13, according to an SMU professor.
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 “[Black men are] more likely to abuse you,” “have STDs,” and “your kids [with black men] probably wouldn’t be smart.”
The flier also shows collaged images of blonde, white women smiling next to straight-faced, black men.
A watermark on the bottom-right corner of the flier may indicate it was originally published by Alt Right, a “set of far-right ideologies, groups and individuals whose core belief is that ‘white identity’ is under attack by multicultural forces using ‘political correctness’ and ‘social justice’ to undermine white people and ‘their’ civilization.”
The fliers were found over the weekend and SMU President R. Gerald Turner has addressed the matter to the student body. Students are organizing a series of protests to call attention to the matter.
