SG president's anti-Muslim e-mail

Phelps forwarded message blasting
Barack Obama, Muslims to colleagues


Student leaders are voicing con-
cern about an e-mail Student Govem-
ment President Nick Phelps forward-
ed to an 50 listserv last month that
describes presidential hopeful Barack
Obama as a Muslim and derides the

The e-mail states. "The Muslims
have said they plan on destroying the
US. from the inside out. what better
way to start than at the highest level
_. through the President of the Unit-
ed States. one of their own!" The
words Muslim. atheist. radical and
Christian were highlighted through-
out the e-mail.

Phelps admitted to sending the
message — which had his name and
his Student Body President and
Board of Trustees member titles at-
tached at the end — through the SG

listserv goes to at least seven mem-
bers of SC. Phelps said his intention
was to spark discussion about the
presidential candidates.

”It's not my opinion. and it‘s not
even fact." Phelps said yesterday.
"My SGA executive committee
knows that."

“The purpose was to talk about
how ridiculous it was and how it's
not right."

But student diversity leader
Patrick Nally said regardless of
Phelps‘ intention. the e-mail was in-
appropriate and sparked a number of
upset students to contact him.

"It‘s not necessarily his opinion.
but why aren‘t student leaders think-
ing about what is wrong with this e-
mail?" said Nally. a student who
works in the Office of Multicultural
Student Affairs.

Students gathered Monday at a
closed meeting organized by an un-

mail and how they would move for-
ward said College Democrats Presi-
dent Robert Kahne. Students agreed
to keep the administrator
and everything that hap—
pened at the meeting confi-
dential. Kahne said that
while he respects the deci-
sion to keep the meeting
confidential, public dia-
logue would be more bene-

Kahne said he was ex-
tremely disappointed with
Phelps and his actions. The
incident is one of several events on
campus recently that have exhibited
intolerance of diversity. he said.

“I think the best thing for Nick to
do would be to resign: I think this
merits that type of reaction," Kahne
said. “This type of ignorance and
slander merits his removal. it is an
abuse of his office."

Yahya Ahmed. president of UK‘s
Muslim Student Association. also
said he was disheartened to see that
Phelps. a student-elected leader.


which Ahmed said had a malicious
tone and was full of disrespect for
Obama Muslims and atheists.

The myth that Obama has
deep Muslim ties has spread
through conservative talk
shows and mass e-mails since
he came to the political spot—
light but has been discredited
widely by journalists. acade»
mics and others.

"The e-mail was blatantly
false." Ahmed said. “It does-
n't promote discussion of any
nature unless it is meant as a
joke or for people who might actual-
ly buy into its message."

College campuses are designed to
promote open-tnindcdness. Ahmed
said. but UK campus culture does not
always foster a sense of acceptance.

Many UK students come from
predominantly white backgrounds
and were not exposed to many Mus-
lims or even African Americans
growing up. Ahmed said.

“Students have certain reserva—

said he did not write or alter contents of the e—mail.

§y_Kenny Colston


While thousands of people were casting votes in border-
to-border primaries. a small group of UK students was de—
bating election issues in Patterson Office Tower last night.

Although 24 states held primaries and caucuses yester-
day. the students were restricted to discussion because
Kentucky‘s primary is not until May 20. Watching as al—
most half the states cast votes for party nominations had
history professor Phil Harling excited to vote himself.

"We're still in the analytic mode." Harling said.
“We're not panicipating. but i was itching to vote."

Other students said they would like to head to the polls
earlier in Kentucky in future years.

“I would like to see our primary moved up to Super
Tuesday." said Keri Borden. a biology and topical studies

in past years. Kentucky voters have felt that they
would receive more attention from presidential candidates
if they could vote in the primaries when the race was still
undecided. said Donald Gross. chair of UK‘s political sci—
ence department. on Monday. But when the state tried hav—
ing a Super Tuesday primary in 1988. the results didn‘t
live up to expectations.

”The last time Kentucky moved up to Super Tuesday
for exactly that reason. it didn‘t work out that way." Gross
said. adding that Super Tuesday tends to mean minimal
personal attention from each candidate because so many
states are contested at the same time.

One student watching results come in last night said
she changed her voter registration to participate in yester—
day's primaries through an absentee ballot. Chelsea Dar-
nell. a Kentucky native. registered to vote in Georgia after
her parents moved there a few months ago. Darnell. a po-
litical science. economics and international relations
sophomore. said she wanted her voice heard earlier.

Even though most of the students could not vote. they
were closely tracking the races online. something they at-
tributed to convenience and personal choice.

“i like to use the lntemet." said Joe Tarantino. a chem-
ical engineering sophomore. “I can research on my own
time and don't have to rely on the media."

Other students embraced the social networking site
Facebook. which has started featuring political coverage
through a partnership with ABC News.

“It has the ability to get people my age involved." Bor—
den said. “lt's a good combo. in the fact that everyone has
and uses Facebook."

Even though many Kentuckians were on the sidelines
during yesterday‘s process. the Super Tuesday results were
not going to influence some students‘ preferences.

“I'll stay with my candidate unless they drop out." said
Jessalyn Ubellacker. a biology and international relations
sophomore. “But these votes won't influence me."

From coast to coast, 24 states held presidential primaries
yesterday as part of the largest Super Tuesday in US. history.

For all the talk of which candidates took which states, the real
race is based on delegates, who will ultimately choose the
presidential field at nominating conventions later this year.

And when it comes to delegates, yesterday was the mother lode:
Democrats were competing for 1,681 delegates, and on the
Republican side, 1,081 were up for grabs.

"The main reason Jewell came to the top of the

Hall residents last night,

Crutclier said for the housing program to not lose
money. residence halls need to be at least 9t) percent
occupied. This year. an average of hl percent of Jew ell
Hall's lllB beds were used. An ayeragc of 33 percent of
Boyd Hall‘s l37 beds were used. The money saved by
the closings will pay resident advisers. lllrtllilc‘lldllt‘t‘
staff and other departmental costs. ('rutclier said

What will be done with Boyd and Jewel] halls 1\
not known yet. Crutclicr said. it enough people apply
to university housing. some will be placed iii lcwcll
Hall until new spaces open up. A high number of
housing applications itiiglit mean Jewell or Boyd halls
would have to reopen for the 200% in school year.

"At some point and time. the butlding w ill be ya,
