As U.S. election nears racist fliers, antisemitic graffiti appear


(Reuters) - Days ahead of a contentious U.S. national election in which immigration has become a central issue, racist fliers saying "It's okay to be white" have been reported on university campuses in five states, while synagogues in New York and California have been sprayed with antisemitic graffiti.

The phrase on the fliers is associated with the white supremacist Ku Klux Klan. The fliers have been reported at campuses including Duke University in North Carolina, Tufts University in Massachusetts, the University of Delaware, the University of Vermont and Iowa State University. In some cases, vandals attached the fliers to posters encouraging people to vote on Nov. 6.
