Kansas State Community Rallies Against Racism

Willie the Wildcat, the old school version of the mascot for Kansas State University

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State University and residents of Manhattan are gathering at a rally to reject discrimination on the university campus. All classes from 1 pm to 3 pm are cancelled for today's (TUE) K-State Unity Walk and a rally called KSUnite. The event will be followed by a series of discussions about related issues.  Student body president Jack Ayres and Darrell Reese, president of the Black Student Union, will host the event. University President Richard Myers will discuss steps to help the community move forward and unite.  The event comes after a noose and racist flyers were found on the campus in recent months. Last month, a 21-year-old black man defaced his own car with racist graffiti in what he described as a Halloween prank that got out of hand.
