Fliers saying "It's OK to be white," part of a national effort by online message boards, appeared on USC's campus as of Nov. 20. According to reports in The State and WIS, the fliers were first seen at Swearingen, 300 Main and the Coker Life Sciences building. USC student Vaidehi Gajjar tweeted a picture of one of the signs at 6:25 a.m. Monday, tagging University President Harris Pastides.
The fliers have been put up at other campuses around the state and nation starting Oct. 31, from University California-Davis to Coastal Carolina University. USC released a statement to WIS stating that "As an open and public campus, we are not immune from such outside influences and activities — fliers were found taped on several buildings this morning.
"The University of South Carolina and the Carolina Family remain steadfastly committed to the principles set forth in the Carolinian Creed."
