John A. Logan College Reacts to White Supremacist Flyers on Campus

Sep 19, 2018

John A. Logan College is keeping its distance from flyers promoting white supremacy, which were placed on vehicles parked at the school on Tuesday.

The flyers had a bold typed headline that read "It's Alright to be White."

Logan spokesperson Steve O'Keefe.
"John A. Logan College prohibits the dissemination of flyers of any kind on automobile windshields. Flyers that were placed on a limited number of cars on Tuesday, September 18th, were promptly removed by campus police. The flyers from an outside group have no connection to the college."
The flyer is from the Creativity Movement, whose website states what is good for the White Race is the highest virtue and what is bad for the White Race is the ultimate sin.

The current Creativity Movement started under Matthew Hale. The SIU Law School graduate is serving a 40-year sentence in Colorado for asking an informant to kill Judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow, who ruled against him in a trademark case.

A professor who discovered the flyers says he'd like to see the school be more inclusive.

Logan history professor David Cochran says he thinks the school should make a stronger commitment to its minority students.
"Our faculty is overwhelmingly white. Our staff is also overwhelmingly white. There hasn't been a kind of commitment to recruit either faculty or staff or students for that matter of color."
Cochran says he like to see John A. Logan hire more minorities and create more minority scholarships.
