CU Chancellor, Student Editors Apologize for Column on Asians

BOULDER Colo.

The chancellor of the University of Colorado’s Boulder campus has apologized for a student’s satirical column poking fun at Asians.

Editors of the student newspaper apologized as well.

The column said Asian students “hate us all” and should be rounded up and forced to play drinking games and endure other ordeals until they change.

Chancellor Bud Peterson said the column used offensive and hateful language. He apologized to Asians and Asian-Americans at the University of Colorado and around the world.

Editors of the Campus Press apologized “to anyone who was hurt by this article.”

The column was written by Max Karson, identified as a staff editor, and posted on the Campus Press Web site on Monday.
