White Supremacist Fliers Were Posted on the Webster University Campus

Fliers promoting a White supremacist group were posted throughout the campus of Webster University in St. Louis. The fliers were removed because postings by people who are not part of the campus community are not permitted at the university.

In a statement the university said that “any speech that promotes hate and intolerant behavior based on a person’s race, color, creed, national origin, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, socioeconomic status, disability, religion or military status” is not permitted.

Webster University enrolls nearly 14,000 students. Blacks make up 16 percent of the undergraduate student body.

  1. “Blacks make up 16 percent of the undergraduate student body.”

    Only 16 percent? This shows that Webster University engages in White Supremecy itself and is an institution with internalized racism based on White Power Structures. Nothing except a student body that is at least 50% POC (East Asians don’t count) will be acceptable.

    It wouldn’t surprise me if Webster University put these posters up themselves.

  2. All white people are to blame for these posterings. Where are my fellow white people speaking out? You know these white students aren’t going to suffer any consequences for this. They should all be punished for not speaking out against white supremacy.

  3. How do we know this isn’t Fake News??? We need to see pictures of these posters. And who get’s to define “white supreeeemist”? These could have been posters for the campus Republicans for all we know.
