White supremacists at Eastern Kentucky University have circulated flyers in campus buildings frequented by police and firefighting trainees.
The flyers claim that the “war declared against whites” in the form of “anti-racist” campaigns amounts to genocide: “[t]he method used is forced assimilation and massive immigration; exactly what China did to Tibet.”
According to the flyers, immigrants are not to blame, as they are “just the crates of guns in this non-violent genocide against white people.”
An African-American professor told WEKU that she believes she is the target of the flyers, but the university would not confirm her suspicions.
“At this point, no one has information leading to any suspects, so it would be premature for us to guess as to who or which group was responsible,” said university spokesperson Marc Whitt.
Whitt also contradicted this professor’s claim that she has repeatedly complained of racially based harassment.
“This is the first reported case of its kind in many, many years. At least in more than a decade. So, we are taking a very proactive stance with this,” Whitt said.
