FORT SMITH (KFSM) -- Police at University of Arkansas- Fort Smith are investigating after racist propaganda was seen littered around campus.
"We're all people and we all have feelings and no one should think their opinion and their perspective is better than anyone else's," student, Megan Outlaw said.
Several students and professors reported seeing the white supremacists posters from American Vanguard Reaction America.
After the campus took notice of the flyers, some professors even brought up the topic in their classrooms.
"The majority of the class, obviously they were against it because of what the posters were talking about," student, Brandon Newton said. "They were against other people and all the other groups. Obviously that was a big deal."
Students say the approval process to post flyers on campus is lengthy.
"There has to be a stamp and everything, so you can't just go posting things all over the place," Outlaw said. "So, freedom of speech, yes, everyone is entitled to that, but on this campus, there are rules and something to follow and this is a prime example of why the university has those things in place."
The posters have since been taken down, according to university police.
"In my opinion, you should be ashamed for coming and degrading the campus like that and hurting people that way," Outlaw said.
The university released this statement: "The flyers in question did not have an university-approved-for-posting stamp, and did not go through any university posting approval procedures. Therefore, we have taken down the flyers. It is our priority to provide and promote an inclusive, welcoming campus to both our students and the Fort Smith community. These flyers do not represent, in any way, the views of the university."
