SUNY New Paltz, one of the state of New York’s many universities, has recently been bombarded by racist signs most notably, one by a water fountain that harkens back to the Civil Rights era with a sign reading, “Colored Only.”

On Nov. 8, the sticker was found near the water fountain, said the school president in a memo after the incident.
Hours later, another sign in the shape of a hand giving the middle finger was found in Lefevre Hall, a dorm, that said “Lynching n—ers program at 7:30 main lounge,” according to a student Facebook page.
That sign originally advertised a dorm event before it was torn into the shape of a hand and scrawled with the racist message, a student said.
