TARGETING JEWISH STUDENTS AND STAFF: HARASSMENT;
HISTORICAL
9/27/17 – A student discovered two antisemitic stickers on light poles behind Hoey and Lovill halls. The stickers depicted a drawing of a Jewish man with a black curly beard wearing a kippah who was hunched over and clasping his hands together as if planning something sinister. The Jewish man was wearing the mask of what appears to be another person, insinuating that hidden behind the facade is a sinister Jew lurking. A red “X” was drawn over the image. The image utilizes historical antisemitic tropes of Jewish power, manipulation, and control.
VERBAL ABUSE2/11/16 – Appalachian State University replaced the Israeli flag with the Palestinian flag in the Plemmons Student Union. A review of this incident claimed a Jewish student who called this into question was verbally abused by a staff member.
