Eastern Michigan University Police Investigate Hate Message Found in Library
A message of hate was found Monday in the library at Eastern Michigan University [located in Ypsilanti] and the school is vowing to get to the bottom of it.
The card that was found in the library is the size of a business card, and its message directs readers to white power websites.
The student who found the card said it was posted between the elevators in the library. Police now have the card and are checking surveillance video to see who put it there.
The card was quickly removed once discovered. EMU President James Smith issued an email to faculty, staff and students on Monday, denouncing the card while assuring that the incident is a “high priority” for EMU police.
“I want to stress again, as I did last fall, that such attacks are hurtful to all of us in the campus community — students, faculty and staff — who work every day to make Eastern a welcoming and inclusive campus,” Smith said in the email.
