University of Alabama Investigating Antisemitic Chalk Messages

The University of Alabama says it is investigating anonymous chalk drawings featuring antisemitic messages aimed at members of the Jewish community.

Photos of the drawings were published on social media by Stopantisemitism.org, which said the #YEisRight references and supports rapper Kanye West’s recent antisemitic rants on social media.

The advocacy group then claimed the University of Alabama will be the “next target” for controversial antisemite and far-right provocateur Dalton Clodfelter.

This comes after Clodfelter’s hate group set up a table at Florida Atlantic last week and generated backlash from the FAU chapter of the Republican Party.

“We condemn these chalkings, which violate our Capstone Creed, our campus culture and our core values,” University of Alabama spokesperson Shane Dorrill said in a statement. “Our expectation is that everyone be treated with civility and respect. As soon as we were notified of the chalkings we began removing them, initiated an investigation and organized resources for those impacted and concerned. Public Safety and the Offices of Student Life and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are fully engaged and providing related support.”
