Demonstrators Take Stage at KU Meeting on Race

A group of students disrupted a campus forum on race relations at the University of Kansas yesterday (WED), taking over the stage and presenting a list of demands.  School officials didn't allow the news media to record the public meeting, but audience members captured the student demonstration on their cell phones and posted the video online.  This audio comes a posting on Facebook. 

"Establish a multi-cultural student government independent of the University of Kansas Student Senate."

A student group called "Rock Chalk Invisible Hawk" presented a list of 18 demands to administrators.  Those demands include the hiring of a director for the KU Office of Multicultural Affairs by December 15, a ban on concealed weapons on campus, and mandatory diversity training for KU students and staff.  

Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little, who moderated the meeting, vowed to work with demonstrators regarding many of their concerns.
