Denver: Rally Targets Johnson and Wales Response to Racist Flier

Denver: Rally Targets Johnson and Wales Response to Racist Flier

Published March 16, 2010

DENVER (AP) — Three Denver-area pastors are taking issue with how Johnson & Wales University in Denver responded to a report of a racist flier placed under a black student's door last month.

The pastors say the flier targeted blacks and gays.

The university says it doesn't condone or tolerate the behavior.

University officials met with the pastors, including Patrick Demmer, Feb. 18 and again Monday, several hours before an afternoon protest rally was scheduled. But Demmer's church administrator Tammy Carter says the pastors still feel Denver campus President Bette Matkowski isn't taking the issue seriously.

The university disputes that. It says it has been investigating and also is working with Denver police.
