Flyers found on University of Missouri campus draw ire for racial messaging

COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)

University of Missouri students have raised objections after flyers were posted on campus claiming "It's okay to be white" and "White Lives Matter."

One of the flyers also said "we must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children."

MU spokesman Christian Basi said the school is aware of the flyers--but they aren't allowed to take them down because they are protected by free speech.

Logan Carter, of the Mizzou Young Democratic Socialists of America, said he still thinks the school should have done more.

“So while we respect the face that it is indeed free speech, we believe the school should take a much stronger response to this,” Carter said. “This is making students feel unsafe and uncomfortable.”

Basi said the only way the school could take them down is if they were on an entrance to a building.
