A Facebook post was made by the Bakersfield College Social Justice Institute on Nov. 6 depicts a flyer they said had been passed around the college's surrounding neighborhood. The flyer shows a defunct housing project, and makes the association of it to the campus' affordable housing project, which is expected to begin construction next year.

Several teachers and administrators have denounced a “racist” flyer that ties several inaccuracies regarding an upcoming affordable housing project to leaders at Bakersfield College.

Some Bakersfield residents received the flyer, which nobody has claimed responsibility for, the weekend before the midterm election.
