CORPUS CHRISIT (KIII NEWS) - Students at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi are responding racist posters that were left on the campus last week by an alt-right group with posters of their own promoting inclusion.
The anti-immigration posters were found on various buildings a week ago, left by a self-proclaimed alt-right group, and were later removed. TAMUCC President Kelly Quintanilla released a statement condemning the posters in the following days, saying the campus "celebrates the diversity of our students and is a proud Hispanic serving institution committed to educational attainment," and that "it is disheartening but not surprising that our university was recently the target of discriminatory, racist speech."
Now, students at TAMUCC are putting new inclusive posters in their place that read: "This is an Island for everyone. You are loved." The posters can be found on various boards on campus, including one in the University's Performing Arts Center.
TAMUCC officials said results of their investigation into the anti-immigration posters were forwarded to the Nueces County District Attorney's Office to be reviewed.
