Individual(s) Hung Up Confederate Flags and Cotton All Over American University

Students at American University (AU) found posters decorated with Confederate flags and cotton stalks at the school Tuesday. At least ten of the posters were plastered up in campus classrooms and hallways on the same night the school launched an anti-racism research center. The posters featured two slogans: “Huzzah for Dixie” and “I wish I was in the land of cotton,” from the Confederate Anthem “Dixie.” Some also has a stalk of cotton. The school has yet to identify who did it and if they will be charged with a hate crime.
