Indiana University has condemned antisemitic comments made on a Greek life website, a website for people to discuss matters concerning fraternities and sororities.
According to one screenshot, one post said: “The truth is that their huge noses, afros, and smelliness prevent them from being attractive so they rape and justify it with their sick way of looking at the world…Their families are in positions of power therefore they get away with everything and are not scared.”
On Monday, Indiana University Hillel released a statement of support on Instagram in which it said: “Please know that you can reach out to us at any time for support. Your Jewish Home Away From Home is always here for you. We are working with the University and IU Student Leaders to combat this horrible antisemitism. We are stronger together.”
The University’s Executive Vice President, Rahul Shrivastav, confirmed that a police investigation was underway, adding: “This attempt to anonymously spread hate is cowardly, horrific, and simply unacceptable in the IU community.”
In November, it was reported that at least a dozen mezuzahs had been stolen from Jewish students at Indiana University.
