    Messages from a white supremacist group were discovered around the campus of Clark University in Worcester in recent days.

    “This is absolutely hate speech,” said Ronnie Franklin, a senior, “Clark being an accepting open caring environment this is not the kind of thing you expect to see.“

    The stickers with white nationalist and anti-Semitic messages contain contact information for Vanguard America, a white nationalist group.

    Senior Ariana Mohammad says she and friends removed a number of stickers, the university had staff members do the same.

    “Racism is so alive,” Mohammad said.

    One sticker tells white people their culture is threatened and urges them to "Take up the Fight"

    “Talking specifically to the white man about their culture being erased is intense and scary,“ said Mohammad.

    “For me, it make me feel afraid,” said senior Saroya Madelala.

    The University released a statement saying in part, “We at Clark University refuse to be a platform for this hate speech…Let us join together and denounce these racist views loudly and without qualification”

    The University is investigating and also offering counseling to any student of staff members who feel threatened.
