CARTERVILLE — John A. Logan College has banned a man who was posting racist flyers on campus last month.

The Southern Illinoisan reported that surveillance video had recorded the man posting racist flyers on cars. Flyers for a group known as The Creativity Alliance or the Church of Creativity were posted on the community college campus in September and just last month.

The alleged poster, who both the school and Williamson County Sheriff Bennie Vick declined to  identify, is thought to be responsible for both incidents, college President Ron House told the newspaper. They were able to get clear pictures of the person and the license plate of his car. Officially, he’s banned for putting flyers on cars of any type on cars, which is against college policy.

“As soon as we gained enough information to ascertain who this individual was, we drafted a ban notice that was executed by President House and delivered by the Sheriff of Williamson County,” college legal counsel Rhett Barke said. “The notice stated that the individual is not permitted on campus either here in Carterville or on any of the satellite campuses in Du Quoin or West Frankfort.”

The same racist flyers were found on the Southeastern Illinois College campus in January, the Southern Illinoisan reported. 

The banned individual was neither an employee nor a student at John A. Logan College.
