Two Colleges Investigating White Supremacist Signs On Campus

Officials at the University of Vermont and St. Michael's College are investigating white supremacist signs and stickers that are being posted around the colleges' campuses.
University of Vermont officials say they're planning a gathering this week for students to discuss the signs.  Last week that signs defending white privilege were posted in a campus display managed by its Mosaic Center for Students of Color. The Burlington Free Press reports St. Michael's President Jack Neuhauser says officials are investigating similar signs at his college.

Neuhauser said St. Michael's supports free speech but will not tolerate hate speech veiled as free speech. He cited news reports saying the postings are meant to encourage white nationalists and not promote equality for all.
