Arizona State class on “The Problem of Whiteness” sparks neo-Nazi campaignBreaking News
After months of silence, Arizona State University is condemning recent activity by White nationalists and "hate preachers" who were responding, in part, to a new class on the "Problem of Whiteness."
James Rund, an ASU administrator who oversees student services at all four ASU campuses, issued a statement with Jake Bennett, director of the Anti-Defamation League in Arizona, and well as representatives from ASU Undergraduate Student Government, ASU Police, Hillel ASU, Tempe Interfaith and almost 20 other co-signers.
"There have been a series of hate speech incidents over recent weeks in Tempe and Mesa, orchestrated by Neo-Nazi groups and hate preachers," the statement begins. "Some of the incidents included anti-Black, anti-immigrant, anti-LGBT and anti-Muslim speech and intimidation. This behavior and these sentiments do not reflect the values of our community."
