University of Tennessee President Joe DiPietro

University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Chancellor Steve Angle and UT system President Joe DiPietro denounced racism after incidents of vandalism and the defacing of Black History Month posters occurred on campus Wednesday.

Posters celebrating Black History Month and advertising events by the Freshman Council were covered by posters that read "Hitler was right" and depicted Adolf Hitler making his infamous salute, according to UTC officials. The group posting the flyers, Vanguard America, is the white supremacist group best known for organizing the Charlottesville, Va., rally last August.
