Racial Incidents Lead to Student Protests on the Campus of Boston College

Two Black Lives Matter posters were defaced on the campus of Boston College in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. The posters were altered to say “Black Lives Do Not Matter.”

Signs were later found on campus that showed a picture of Uncle Sam with the caption, “I want you to love who you are. Don’t apologize for being white.”

In response, the group Eradicate Boston College Racism held a rally on campus and hundreds of students walked out of classes to participate in the protest. Speakers at the rally criticized the administration for not doing more to fight racism on campus.
