But the Commonwealth's Flagship Campus would prefer it if students express their hatred for Nazis in ways that do not include the use of profanity if at all possible.
Buzzfeed, has a photo of one student's "Fuck Nazis" dorm-window sign, as well as background on why she felt compelled to put it up, and reports she was asked to take it down by a residence director for "reasons of inclusion."
In an official Facebook post, though, UMass Amherst apologized for the "poorly worded email", says it does not have a policy of including Nazis in anything and says the student can keep the sign up:
A poorly worded email from Residence Life staff asking students to take down the sign does not reflect the values of the campus, and it should not have been sent.
UMass Amherst emphatically rejects Nazis, and any other hate group, a view expressed in the students’ sign. However, we are sensitive to the use of profanity, which some could find inappropriate. The university respects the students’ right to display the sign and it may remain up.
