Western State Colorado University (yes, that is a real school – I Googled it) is dealing with a brewing public relations crisis. As Kirk Mitchell at The Denver Post reports:

Western State Colorado University president Greg Salsbury has been accused in a federal lawsuit of making discriminatory remarks about black employees when he was executive vice president of a large insurance company with offices in Denver.
