Emory students seek improvements for minorities

ATLANTA — Protesters at Emory University are calling on the school to develop a system so that people can report bias.

Students who rallied Wednesday evening at the metro Atlanta university also said they want a black student union to serve as a resource and gathering place.

About 200 students gathered for the “Rally Against Racism” Wednesday evening at the campus near Atlanta’s east edge.

In the winter edition of Emory Magazine, school President James Wagner used the 1787 three-fifths compromise on slavery to make a point about finding common ground in political matters.

That touched off controversy on campus, and one faculty group voted to censure Wagner over the article.

Wagner later apologized, saying he considered slavery heinous and inhuman and that he should have stated that clearly in the article.
