“We condemn this offensive display of bigotry, white supremacy and anti-Semitism,†said CAIR National Communications Coordinator Ayan Ajeen.“The university’s policy allows students, organizations and the general public to use bulletin boards without approval for posting information related to their activities, but if this policy is leading to racist materials being posted, then it must be reevaluated.â€

CAIR has reported an unprecedented spike in bigotry targeting American Muslims, immigrants and members of other minority groups since the election of Donald Trump as president.
