M LIVE  Anti-discrimination chalkings were visible on the University of Michigan€’s Diag on Thursday evening after anti-Islam and pro- Donald Trump chalkings were found for the second time in recent weeks.

University community members posted images on social media of “€œNo Turkey, Qatar, Saudi, Pakistan,”€ “€œNo more Muslim violence,” “€œF**k SJWs” and “€œTrump 16″€ written on Diag benches on April 7.

UPDATE: University spokesman Rick Fitzgerald said chalking on benches will be removed, per university policy.

The incident comes just a little more than a week after “#Stop Islam” and “Trump 2016” were found written in chalk on the Diag.

University police were made aware of the chalk Thursday, but found students working to remove the writing when they arrived on scene about 1 p.m., said Diane Brown, U-M Division of Public Safety and Security public information officer.

Although a majority of the anti-Islam chalking was gone by Thursday evening, €”Trump 2016″€ appeared to have been re-written on benches of the Diag in white chalk. This time, however, anti-Trump and anti-discrimination responses were added.

One “€œTrump 2016” message was crossed out, with the anti-Trump hashtag €”Drumf”€ written overtop.

“Racial, ethnic or religious discrimination have no place at the University of Michigan – Mark Schlissel” and “Muslim students are welcome here” was also written on the benches. University of Michigan president Mark Schlissel made the statement last week after the #Stop Islam€ chalkings were found.

A letter sent to Schlissel from American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee of Michigan on Thursday questioned the efforts of the university in addressing the safety concerns of Muslim students.

“€œContrary to the University of Michigan€’s stated mission of inclusion and intolerance, many feel that had the ugly messages been directed at any other group, a much more direct and strong message of disapproval by the University of Michigan would have occurred,”€ the letter said.

The Ann Arbor News has reached out to the university for further comment.

Following the chalkings on March 30, university spokesman Rick Fitzgerald said attacks on a group or member of the community due to a belief or characteristic are inconsistent with U-M’s values of respect, civility and equality.

“We all understand that where speech is free it will sometimes wound,” he said at the time. “But our message is this: We are fully committed to fostering an environment that is welcoming and inclusive of everyone.

“Tonight we are reminded there is much work yet to be done.”
