A crowd of about Ztl students gathered around the
Rev. Louis (‘oleman yesterday to pray about Friday ‘s

Kernel editorial cartoon.

"We come. oh (iod. to let these students know we
are here to support them." ('oleman said. "Giy'e them
the strength. oh Lord. to continue their struggle."

('oleman. a l.0lll\\'lllc preacher and ciyil rights ac-

to protest the cartoon.

The cartoon. which compared [YK‘s (ireek system to
a shoe auction. is only a symptom of larger problems at

the uni\ersity. Coleman said.

He also said the campus-wide e~mail UK President
Lee Todd issued Monday night e\pressing his “strong
disagreement" with the cartoon should ha\e been sent

See Coleman on page 3



['K President Lee Todd released a statement
last night denouncing campus incidents “in which
the lines of chi] discourse have been crossed."
The incidents Todd referred to have taken place
since an editorial cartoon that likened 17KB Greek
system to a slave auction was published in Fri-

day ‘s Kernel.

UK spokesman Jay Blanton said two specific
instances prompted Todd‘s statement. One student
had a racial slur written on his dorm room door.
and a Kemel reporter was slapped while coy ering
protests about the cartoon Friday.

“Such acts will not be tolerated.‘~ Todd said in
the email “They will be fully inyestigated, and
those found responsible will be dealt with accord-
ing to rules and regulations."

Blanton said the reason the e-mail was sent
last night was because the student with the racial

"My feeling was we ought to ha\e
something tin the conferencel lor stu~

Lien-Hang Nguyen. an assistant his-

it gathers top scholars in the field of

“The conference is about the chang-

“We come from very different
backgrounds professionally. but of

Berres said.

The speakers are expected to ex—

Berres said there will be a broad
