We should Itot have ptiblished the
editorial cartoon in Friday‘s Kernel.

A large part of the student body
and the commuv
nity was rightful-
ly' offended.

Neither the
cartoonist nor the
editors at the
Kernel intended
for the cartoon to
be hurtful.

But our intert-
tions are irrele—
vant. The cartoon
hurt titany of our
readers. and l
apologi/e for it being published.

Sometimes. it is necessary to be
offensive or controversial to ntake a
point. But in this case. we crossed the
line. and arty tttessage iii the cartoon
was obscured by its offensiveness.


Editor in
( hief

I‘ve always believed that the
opinions page of a newspaper should
act as a forum for debate aitd discus-
sion. To keep from stilling discourse.
we try to edit columns. cartoons and
letters to the editor lightly so that the
author‘s viewpoint isn’t changed.

We‘ve slipped. though. from light
editing to lax editing. as the publica-
tion of Friday‘s cartoon demonstrates.
For instance. I did not review the car-
toon before it was published. and no
editors brought it to my attention.
There is absolutely no excuse for that

Many different editors at the Ker-
nel. including myself. should careful—
Iy discuss any potentially offensive
content before it is published. That
didn‘t happen Thursday. lf several edA
itors and I had sat down together and
discussed the cartoon. I'm confident
we would not have run it.

This will certainly bring changes


I apologizes for editoria

at the Kernel. I intend to immediately
stan reviewing our editing process.
both on the opinions page and else—
where, arid I will lead the editors and
staffers in a discussion of how we can
be more rigorous and thorough.

It‘s also time for the Kernel to re—
flect on its diversity. both on our staff
and in our coverage. Discussion will
be key in identifying our failures and
preventing future mistakes. It will
also be key in regaining the trust of
many of our readers.

This cartoon is undoubtedly a step
back for us. In an era where we're
trying to recruit more voices ittto the
Kernel. we‘ve done something that
hurts our ability to do that.

I hope we can figure out ways to
heal negative perceptions. both exist~
ing ones arid those created by Fri-
day's cartoon. so that we can diversi-
fy our staff and better represent the
student body with our coverage. The


Kernel is a voice of the students, and
we realize some voices are not as
prominent as they should be.

My fear is that this incident will
taint the Kernel and overshadow the
work this staff has done to highlight
important campus issues.

The reaction on Friday demon—
strates that the Kernel is more than
just a classroom distraction for stu-
dents. What we print cart elicit change
for the better. but it can also hurt peo-

I hope this column is only the be-
ginning of healing some of the
wounds we created.

I want our coverage to reflect the
student body. aItd I recognize that it
hasn't always been that way.

I invite our readers to give us
their thoughts about Friday's cartoon
arid about the Kernel in general. We
will print as many letters to the edi-
tor about this topic as possible and


I cartoon

will add extra pages to the paper if
necessary. I expect there will be fo—
rums about this topic iii the conting
weeks. and I hope Kernel editors
will be invited to participate in these
discussions. I believe that the only
way to heal is through dialogue.

We made a mistake. We also
know that we've only begun to learn
important lessons froin it.

The Kernel wants to be a voice
about and for students. The only
way to make sure it does that well is
to work hard at listening. Over the
next few days. weeks arid months. I
know a lot of you will want to share
opinions about the newspaper, our
cartoon and the way we Cover this

Students and university employees gather on the path in front of the Grehart Journalism Building on Friday to protest a cartoon that ran in that day s Kernel

Students protest depiction of slave auction

More than 100 rally at journalism building;
another gathering planned this afternoon

By Jill Luster
[lasteflkyke nel com

More than Itltt students gathered
outside the Grehan Joumalism Building
on Friday aftemoon to protest a Kernel
editorial cartoon that likened UK's
Greek system to a slave auction.

The cartoon. which ran on Friday
and was drawn by staff cartoonist Brad
Fletcher. depicts a black titan in chains
on an auction block being bid on by
three fraternities. "Aryan ()mega." “AI-
pha Caucasian" aitd “Kappa Kappa
Kappa.” The caption reads. “UK
Greeks lead the way oti integration with
this year's new bids."

"I didn‘t care about the ‘purpose‘

I cared about this mart in chains. I
cared about the KKK." said broadcast
yroumalism senior Chaka Buraimoh. “I
felt disrespected as a black woman."

“More than disrespected. l felt
hurt." she said.

Editor in Chief Keith Smiley. who
has written an apology that appears on
the front page of today‘s Kernel. said
editors failed to discuss the cartoon be-
fore it was published.

“I support my staff totally. and we
make mistakes. but this should not have
gone to print." Smiley said. “Some—
times it’s necessary to offend to get

your point across. This wasn‘t one of

those cases. I think in this case any
message was lost because of the car—
toon's offensiveness."

Fletcher apologized iii a column
that appears in today‘s Kemel.

“It was never my intent to gartier
this reaction or to convey the message
that l have." he said in the column.

"In hindsight. it seems obvious to
me why the cartoon has upset so many
people.’~ he said. “The images are
harsh. dramatic and unnecessary."

Outside the Grehan btiildittg on Fri-
day. students held up copies of the Ker-
nel with the cartoon circled iIt marker
with phrases like "Why this?" written

beside it. Students passed out copies of

the paper to passers-by.

Reporters front the Lexington Hcri

Reese resigned yesterday after the
newspaper declined to
publish a column he
wrote defending the print~

“My official position
is that I don't particularly
agree with the cartoon but
it wasn't my job as opin-
ions editor to agree with
everything published."
Reese said.

Reese‘s column. writ-
ten over the weekend. argued that
the publication of the cartoon was
justified because it sparked a con—
versation about race relations. He of

didn't run in today‘s paper.

“That opinion and that ultima—

for an editor at the Ker-
nel. so I accepted his res-
ignation.“ Smiley said.

Reese said that while
he respected the Kemel's
decision not to run his
editorial column. he

Hardly appropriate behay ior.

"There was a scheduling coit-

ordered." explains a Spears

Veteran trainers to share
inside look at horse racing

By Leticia Janos


Despite yearly trips to horse races.

enthralled visitors and citizens of Lexing-
ton. the "horse capital of the world." may
not be thinking of where a thoroughbred
horse goes before and after its racing

To clue students in on the life of a
racehorse and the industry that surrounds
it. the UK Horse Racing Club has invited
five experts to campus.

Students can get an inside look at
horse racing from a trainer‘s perspective
tonight at 6 in the Student Center Grand
Ballroom at the club‘s first-ever panel
featuring prominent horse trainers.

The UK Horse Racing Club has been
involved in numerous events promoting
education about the horse industry and
experience for club members who want
to pursue a career in it. said club spokes—
woman Margaret Liles.

Shannon Frame. an animal science
junior and club president. has worked
with club members. the faculty adviser
and local farms for about 10 months to
plan the event. which local farms and
businesses sponsored. In April. mem—
bers asked some established racehorse
trainers at Keeneland to serve on the

The trainers are Kenny McPeck. Carl
Nafzger. Rebecca Maker. John Ward and
Ron Moquett.

“I would like students at UK who are
actively involved in horse racing to see
how the industry works and get career
advice." Frame said.

This is a great opportunity for stu~
dents to learn from the trainer's perspec-
tive about lesser-known aspects of selec-
tion and preparation in the horse racing


industry. said animal science professor
and club adviser Laurie Lawrence.

“We are expecting around 100 to 200
people in attendance for the event and
hopefully more," Lawrence said. “This
was entirely student—ran. and they have
done an incredible job."

The trainers will be on hand to an-
swer and discuss industry issues or basic
racing-related questions. Some club offi—
cers will lead a discussion with pre-se—
lected questions and then open it to the
audience. The evening will also include
refreshments and a silent auction.

This is one of the club's biggest
events to benefit the Makers Mark Sec—
retariat Center. a Thoroughbred Retire-
ment Foundation facility. Half of the
ticket proceeds will go to the center.
which is one of the ll U.S. farms that
care for horses when their racing or
breeding days are over. The center allows
club members to network with industry

“A big part of being a professional in
this industry is also being a good citizen
and volunteering." Liles said. "I am most
excited about the education for the stu-
dents and helping out the center."

The center is a non—profit organiza-
tion funded by Maker‘s Mark through its
partnership with Keeneland. as well as
dozens of donors. The center works to re-
train and groom dozens of horses in Lex-
ington‘s Kentucky Horse Park. Maker‘s
Mark Secretariat Center opened in the
spring of 2004 and is operated by the
Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation.

Students can purchase tickets to
tonight‘s panel for $5 in advance or SIS
at the door. General admission is $l5 in
advance and $20 at the door. To pur-
chase. e-mail UKHorseRacingClubGi
