A racially offensive flier attempting to illustrate all the reasons why white women shouldn’t date Black men has a Texas University searching for answers.
The latest in a string of racist incidents that have erupted in the wake of Donald Trump being declared president-elect of the United States, Southern Methodist University in Dallas was targeted with handouts overflowing with openly stereotypical language directed towards African-American men in an effort to keep the white female students on campus from dating them.
Riddled with side-by-side head shots of blonde-haired white women and Black men, the shameful memo gives detailed reasoning for their delusional argument. Among the most troubling language in the handout are the notions that white women should “avoid” dating Black men because they are morel likely to commit “violent crimes,” and more likely to transmit STDs, than their white counterparts. The flier also boasts that if white women have children with Black men, they are likely to be less intelligent, before going on to list a handful of incidents where Black men sexually assaulted white women.
An “Alt-Right” logo is also seen in the bottom right-hand corner of the flier.

SMU issued a statement to the Daily Campus newspaper on the disturbing incident shortly after photos of the flier went viral, condemning the messaging found on the hand out and encourages the student body to help identify the creators.
“SMU condemns the racist and hateful message in these fliers,” a portion of the statement reads. “These messages have no place at SMU and are in opposition to SMU’s values and commitment to an environment free from discrimination.”
The University is currently investigating the incident.
