University of Louisville Students Respond To Online Threats

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- After becoming the targets of online threats, some students at the University of Louisville are finding their own way to react.

Comments and threats were posted on a white supremacy website.

The messages were in response to Monday's rally for six African-American teens accused of beating a white classmate in Jena, Louisiana.

Instead of responding to the online posts, the Association of Black Students used them to open a dialog at Thursday night's meeting.

Leaders for the student group said they plan to continue to use the comments as a spring board to discuss race issues.
