Racist Messages From ‘Fringe Political Group' Found on DePaul Campus, Officials Say

Stickers promoting a “fringe political group” that included “racist messages” were found on toilet paper dispensers on a Chicago university’s campus, school officials confirmed Tuesday.

The stickers were discovered and removed from DePaul University’s Student Center first floor men’s room on Saturday, Gene Zdziarski, vice president of student affairs and Elizabeth Oritz, vice president of the Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity said in a joint statement.

“Racism and acts of intimidation have absolutely no place on our campus,” the statement reads. “Public Safety will be investigating this matter and anyone with information is encouraged to call 773-325-7777.”

The release says the university will release more details as they become available.

DePaul has seen some controversy this year after a noose and racist graffiti were reportedly found on the school's campus. The reports came amid tension following the protest of a controversial conservative speaker and the university's decision to not allow a second speaker to visit the campus.
