A very racist message, which strongly discourages interracial relationships between black men and white women was aggressively distributed recently on a college campus in the state of Texas.
According to the Huffington Post, a number of fliers appeared on campus Sunday (November 13th) at the Southern Methodist University in Dallas (SMU). These fliers contained an article with hateful propaganda, which was titled, “Why White Women Shouldn’t Date Black Men.”
The first fliers were discovered in a SMU dorm and in the science building of the school’s campus, according to a tweet sent out Tuesday (November 15th) by a local news anchor named Desmond Fernandez. Fernandez works for WFAA-TV, a news channel based in the Dallas area.
The racist flyers have been attributed to an ultra-conservative, loosely organized group called Alt-Right. The group’s logo is visible at the bottom right hand corner of the flyer. Numerous slights against black men were written in the message of bigotry present throughout the fliers.
“He’s much more likely to abuse you, ” read one of the passages on the fliers.
“White women who marry black men multiply their chances of being killed by their spouses by 12.4-a 1140% increase. The risk of non-fatal abuse and girlfriend abuse is also much higher with black men than white men,” the passage also reads.
SMU has released a public statement condemning the racist fliers. However, there have been no talks about action being taken against the culprits responsible for spewing the hateful message.
“SMU condemns the racist and hateful message in these fliers. These messages have no place at SMU and are in opposition to SMU’s values and commitment to an environment free from discrimination,” wrote a representative of SMU in the school’s Daily Campus newspaper.
Interracial dating is still considered to be a taboo in America. The Alt-Right group’s message reinforces the reality that mentalities of racism have not changed since the Civil Rights Movement. However, a report on a summer 2014 study by eHaromony showed that black women and men still prefer a mate of their own race with an equal amount of socioeconomic status. This fact probably reveals a silver lining.
History has shown that unity among black men and women is vital to killing the hideous propaganda and unproven “facts” being preached by the Alt-Right group on the SMU campus. Black men can reverse the game by being consistently supportive and loving toward their fellow black women in marriage and relationships.
