MANHATTAN, KS (AP) -

Kansas State is speaking out after posters promoting white nationalism were plastered around on campus.

The Manhattan Mercury reports that university spokesman Steve Logback says the posters that appeared Wednesday don't reflect Kansas State values and are unwelcome.

Student body president Jack Ayres said in a tweet that the student government is organizing a demonstration. He wrote there is "absolutely NO place for this on our campus."

Student Seth Peery called the posters "heartbreaking" but "not entirely surprising." He says not enough has been done to promote "understanding and empathy regarding racial diversity."

The university also found several racist messages on campus during the spring semester, including a noose hanging in a tree. Kansas State denounced the posters and created two new diversity and inclusion administrative positions over the summer.
