Racist flyers found on U-M campus calling to 'Make America White Again'

The racist trolls have come out from their white supremacist caves deep within Ann Arbor and have terrorized the campus over the last month with racist messages popping up more frequently than ever.

A pair of racist, anti-black flyers were found outside of the Stockwell Residence Hall Tuesday morning, according to The Michigan Daily.
  One of the flyer's reads "Make America White Again" with links to alt-right white supremacist websites, adding "We must secure the existence of our race and a future for white children."

The other flyer gives statistics that the average I.Q. for a white person is higher than a black person, saying "Do The Math, Nature Is Racist, Not "The System."

Similar flyers showed at the University of Michigan's campus last year with  and professors issues a statement debunking the myth that there is any correlation between intelligence and race.

Last month, a group of black students in the West Quad Residence Hall found racial slurs written on their dorm room doors, and just last week a video surfaced online of a white man urinating on a "Black Lives Matter" sign that was chalked on the sidewalk at the university's Diag.

There have been a number of anti-protests popping up on the campus in the last month, including once graduate student taking a knee for 24-hours in support of NFL player Colin Kaepernick.

The exact same flyer was found near Wayne State University's campus only a few days ago, as reported by The South End.
