ADL Condemns Racist Death Threat Against Colorado Student
Denver, November 16, 2005 ... The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) condemned a hateful e-mail containing a death threat sent to a University of Colorado at Boulder student leader, and urged the university's administrators to take immediate action.
Bruce H. DeBoskey, ADL Mountain States Regional Director, issued the following statement:
ADL condemns the racist threat directed at a University of Colorado student leader. Such hateful speech creates a climate of tension and fear that threatens every student.
College campuses should be safe, hospitable learning environments for all students. ADL calls upon the CU-Boulder administration to make it absolutely clear that hatred in any form is unacceptable, will not be tolerated, and that all students are welcome and will be safe on the Boulder campus.
The Anti-Defamation League, founded in 1913, is the world's leading organization fighting anti-Semitism through programs and services that counteract hatred, prejudice and bigotry.
