Update: Black Student Union responds to racist propaganda at MSUM
MOORHEAD, Minn. (KVRR) – Decals promoting a white supremacist group were found on the Minnesota State University Moorhead campus Monday night.
In an email to MSUM students and staff, MSUM President Anne Blackhurst said the stickers were similar to those that have been posted on other campuses in the Fargo-Moorhead area.
Blackhurst said the decals were found “at several MSUM locations.”
“I’m thankful to the employees who acted quickly to remove the stickers and make a report to MSUM’s Bias Response Team” Blackhurst said.
“Acts of racism and hate are completely inconsistent with MSUM’s values and all of us have an obligation to denounce such acts when we witness them.”
MSUM’S Black Student Union says the group is aware of the stickers but not surprised.
“It has happened before, and it will happen again. MSUM BSU continues to fight hate and promote equality and love through it all.”
Earlier this month, stickers linked to a hate group were found on the NDSU campus in Fargo.
