Daily Herald – Racial epithets in Happy Valley

Daily Herald – Racial epithets in Happy Valley:

By contrast, LDS Church President Gordon B. Hinckley told last weekend’s general priesthood session of conference that he was disturbed by reports of Utahns’ using racial epithets. This comes just a few weeks after a town-hall meeting in Provo called to explore this issue. That meeting resulted in expressions of desire that something be done. Provo City School District is one entity that is actually doing, with renewed emphasis on racial and ethnic sensitivity. We hope this is not a mere exercise in political correctness but a genuine effort to sharpen students’ thinking and improve their perceptive abilities.
