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.

According to a federal civil discrimination lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Denver, Salsbury allegedly stated that an Atlanta satellite office of Jackson National Life Insurance Company was moved to Denver in 2007 because the worker pool in Atlanta was too black.
