ADL: Hate Groups Recruiting On Some Ohio College Campuses

A nationally-recognized hate group is trying to recruit new members from some college campuses in Ohio. Crews at the University of Toledo and Bowling Green State University this week removed signs and fliers posted by the white separatist group called "Identity Evropa." The Anti-Defamation League has recorded more than 100 such incidents this school year, with six of them in Ohio, including at Kent State and Ohio State Universities. ADL spokesperson Anita Gray hopes universities will take steps to stop the incidents.

Gray says she's grateful that President Trump has made statements against anti-Semitism, but hopes he will do more. 

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
