Racist fliers have been found on SMU’s campus, titled “Why White Women Shouldn’t Date Black Men,” according to the Daily Campus student newspaper.

The fliers were posted in a dorm and in the Dedman Life Sciences building, NBC 5 reported.

“SMU condemns the racist and hateful message in these fliers,” the university announced Tuesday in a statement. “These messages have no place at SMU and are in opposition to SMU’s values and commitment to an environment free from discrimination.”

The fliers claimed that black men are “much more likely to have STDs,” and that “your kids probably wouldn’t be smart.”

An “Alt Right” logo is printed on the bottom right corner of the flier.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights advocacy group, the Alt Right is a “set of far-right ideologies, groups and individuals whose core belief is that ‘white identity’ is under attack by multicultural forces using ‘political correctness’ and ‘social justice’ to undermine white people and ‘their’ civilization.”

Similar fliers have been seen at the University of Oklahoma earlier this month and at the University of Michigan in September, the Daily Campus reported.
