Campaign against BYU Student's Racist Remarks sign now

We the undersigned individuals petition to request that the unidentified Brigham Young University Fan and/or Brigham Young University acknowledge the discriminatory and racial act exhibited by this fan in these photos (http://coalitiontoprotect.blogspot.com/2008/04/byu-images.html). This act occurred when the University of Utah Utes Girls Volleyball team played the Brigham Young University Cougars at Brigham Young University. We hope that the University will publicly apologize to Indigenous students on both their campus and on the University of Utahs campus. In fact we respectfully request that Brigham Young University implement cultural sensitivity training for their fans as both references made in this photo are highly sensitive issues for many Indigenous people today. This is especially true for the Cherokee people who were forcefully removed from their homelands in what is now called The Trail of Tears and for the Ute people who were relocated in order to keep peace between them and the Mormon people living in this area.

    I was very disappointed to hear about the student displaying an offensive sign at the Utah vs BYU game. It doesn't surprise me that this type of ignorance still exists at BYU as I experienced it myself. I am of the LDS faith, but I still experience racism

    I fully agree that a mandatory cultural sensitivity training should be the next order - not only for BYU but also for the U of U. Both schools could truly benefit from such education. I find these remarks quite hateful and offensive, but I want to believe

    I believe the student and others, who might think such oppressive and racist messages are "OK," could benefit tremendously through cultural sensitivity training! Proactive training and an apology from the student/BYU is in order..

    A long time ago I heard there were scriptures which said if Native Americans (Lamanites?) were rightous they could turn White. Back then, Blacks were not allowed to participate in certain church rituals. Doctrines which promoted these events were eventual

    BYU is onne of the most racist schools of US. All the browns here as considered brought there by some missionaries.Some professors are really nice, which should be strange for mormonism.I was treated always like trash , even with a wealthy background. Now

    I have to admit, when I went to BYU, I just turned a blind eye to the rascist and behavior. I am glad someone has the courage to stand up and do something I did not have the voice to do. Thank you for your courage, because this is immoral.
