campus press staff to undergo diversity training

Fresh from the fallout of the War on Asians column, the University of Colorado's Campus Press staff will reportedly undergo diversity training and meet other measures outlined by University officials: Diversity training for CU's Campus Press after Asian 'hate' column. On Thursday, editors of the Campus Press met with the dean of the School of Journalism and Mass Communication to talk about how to deal with fallout from Max Karson's column.

I'm still astounded that at no point prior to publication did any one of these editors stop to think, hey, this might be a monumentally bad idea. It's rather pathetic. As a result of the meeting, the group agreed to take steps to prevent similar "editing lapses" in the future. I wish the same could have been promised from the AsianWeek editors after the Kenneth Eng debacle.
