Colleges Address Racist Fliers Appearing On Campus

GALLOWAY TWP, NJ (CBS) — Racial tensions are on the rise across the country. In our area, there have been signs of a growing problem in communities far and wide, targeting young people

College campuses are seeing fliers going up from a white supremacist group seeking new members.

Stockton University in Galloway Township had to take down several of those fliers during “Get Involved” week.

“I think it’s happening on college campuses all over the place,” Institutional Diversity official Valerie Hayes told KYW Newsradio. “What it has done for us is sort of galvanized our community. We do not want hate and racism to divide us.”

Similar fliers have also appeared on the main campus at Rutgers in New Brunswick. They, too, were taken down.

Stockton has published photos of three men, not students, they believe are responsible for the fliers and the matter has been referred to the Atlantic County Prosecutor.

A college spokeswoman says all three have been identified and charges are pending against one of them.
