"UUP supports and stands proudly with SUNY Plattsburgh students in their strong condemnation of and disgust over a racist social media post.
"That racism continues to rear its ugly head in Plattsburgh and across the country is reprehensible and will not be tolerated. UUP will fight shoulder-to-shoulder with SUNY Plattsburgh students, our UUP Plattsburgh Chapter members, and any organization that opposes racism and supports civil rights.
"We thank SUNY Vice Chancellor Carlos Medina, and Teresa Miller, chief of staff and senior vice chancellor for strategic initiatives, for meeting with and listening to the concerns of SUNY Plattsburgh students impacted by this heinous act.
"All forms of racism and hate must be met with resistance. We applaud SUNY Plattsburgh students for quickly confronting and speaking against this overt display of racism."
