On Thursday night there were flyers that said "it's okay to be white" randomly distributed around Western Connecticut State University.
University President John Clark described them as "hate-filled" flyers. He said he is shocked and saddened to find these on campus.
There has been an investigation launched by Danbury police, CT State Police, and the FBI. They are going to review surveillance footage.
Authorities are going to interview anyone who may have witnessed these signs posted.
“Have no doubt that we are treating this as an attack on our university community and making every effort to see that those responsible are caught and properly punished. I am fully committed to the absolutely necessary goal this does not happen again. We must be ever vigilant to protect our university against these hateful attacks,” Clark said in a letter, per the university website.
An Antifa website has labelled these as "NeoNazi flyers" and asked people to rip them down.

How is "it's okay to be white" hate speech? If they don't like the message on the paper, simply take them down and move on.
Many people on Twitter were angry about this story.
Last Wednesday I said on channel4 @kfor that freedom of speech might not be here for my son, on Saturday they claim that an it's okay to be white flyer is hate speech.

This also happened at the Oklahoma City University School of Law. They also launched a full investigation into the matter.
Anyone: it's okay to be white.
Left: is this a hate crime? https://t.co/FOFSaycITR

Launching full-blown investigations into someone posting flyers that say "it's okay to be white" really is a reach. Be offended, call them racist, but getting the police involved? Come on. Saying being a certain race is "okay" cannot be deemed as racist.

Universities should focus on teaching their students about things that matter instead of how to get upset about everything.
