Classification Date-Description
2/8/17 – A Valentines Day card with antisemitic messages was passed out to students during and following a College Republican Meeting. A former student printed out a meme from online, and put them into Valentine bags of candies and messages that were distributed to members. One member later gave his bag away to other students, who discovered the message. The card had an image of Adolf Hitler and read, “my love for u burns like 6,000 jews [sic]”

(Description note, “We, members of the Central Michigan University faculty, have all learned of an anti-Semitic incident on our campus, one that glibly made light of the genocide of the Jewish people (and other marginalized groups) during the Holocaust…First and foremost, we stand in unflinching solidarity with Jewish communities on our campus and beyond. We uphold you now and always. We will do everything in our power to protect you, to listen to and hear your truths, to affirm and teach your histories and current-day experiences, and to celebrate your people…Further, we reject acts of hate against any group of fellow humans on our campus and in our communities at home and abroad. Here, too, we vow to uphold the values of a diverse society that treasures the multiplicity of voices, experiences and identities.”)
