Madeleine D'Angelo and Alec Greaney, The Heights, October 20, 2017

Update, Oct. 20, 2017, 11:30 am: Boston College responded to the incident in two comments on Facebook, posting in one that “It appears an outside group, well known for such tactics, posted offensive materials to provoke controversy. We stand united in opposition to their actions and denounce all forms of hatred.” {snip}

Two identical signs, each with a large image of Uncle Sam and text reading “I want you to love who you are / don’t apologize for being white” were hanging on the campus map stand between Stokes Hall and Carney Hall as early as 9:30 a.m. this morning, two and a half hours before the “Silence Is Still Violence” march was due to begin at that location.

In the top right-hand corner the signs included a logo for American Renaissance, a monthly online magazine committed to promoting white supremacy according to other publications including The Washington Post. {snip}
