Temple University Police are investigating racist flyers that were found on campus.

A student posted a photo of one of the three flyers on Twitter Wednesday. The sign reads, “Hey you stupid N-----s, Bernie would have won if it wasn’t for you. Seriously, f--k you all. This is all your fault.” :D

The sign was found outside the 1940 Residence Hall, according to the student.

Officials say two other flyers using inflammatory language against African Americans were also found on campus power poles at the school.

“This is disgusting, hateful and has no place on our campus,” Temple University spokesman (((Ray Betzner))) wrote in a statement.

The school is investigating and anyone with information is asked to contact Campus Safety Services.

Person Of Interest Sought After Racist Flyers Found On Temple Campus
December 15, 2017 at 5:18 pm

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Temple University police are searching for a person of interest after racist flyers were found posted on campus.

University officials say “highly offensive racist flyers” were found posted outside a utility pole in the 1200 block of Norris Street, one on a parking bollard in the 1300 block of Norris and the third on a news box at 13th Street and Montgomery Avenue.

A student posted a photo on Twitter Thursday showing one of the flyers in front of a campus dorm. It appears to blame African Americans for Bernie Sanders not winning the 2016 presidential election.

In a letter to the Temple community Friday, President Richard Englert called the flyers “disgusting, intimidating and hateful” adding that they have no place on the campus.

“They do not represent the Temple community that I have known :rolleyes: and loved during the last 40 years. Personally, I found the flyers despicable, and it breaks my heart that this occurred at Temple,” said Englert in a statement.

After reviewing video footage, police have identified a person of interest.

If you have any information about this person you are asked to call Campus Safety Services at 215-204-1234.
