A white supremacist manifesto was apparently violated by students at a Syracuse University Library on Tuesday – a day after a fraternity was closed for alleged racism, and several cases of racial graffiti have been reported to campus authorities.
Several students who were in the Bird Library allegedly received a copy of a racist manifesto – probably the 74-page anti-immigrant document written by Christchurch, New Zealand's shooter – around 1am, and a copy of the document was also published on an online forum , says the school's Department of Public Safety.

"These reports have not yet been confirmed and there is no specific threat to Syracuse University," the security official wrote in a news release on Tuesday. "The Department of Public Safety is investigating these reports and has notified the Syracuse Police Department, New York State Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation."
After students received the doctor, an official security manager said "not just go home," the student newspaper reported The Daily Orange. A link to the manifesto was apparently also sent to Greekrank.com, a platform used to rate Greek life at university, around 10:30 the night before.
