    LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) -- These students spent their Friday not in class but instead in the president’s office.

    “I'm a proud Cardinal. I came here and I love it here. But it's really hard to wake up and see a picture where your president is reinforcing racist stereotypes,” Tania Avalos, graduate student said.

    The photo was at first part of a Courier-Journal article about the president’s mansion that he doesn't live in. Martha Elson knocked on the door of the mansion the reporter was met by Jane Ramsey, President Ramsey's wife wearing a poncho and a mustache who gave them permission to come in and take pictures.

    “Whenever someone arrived she handed them a sombrero or a veil and these mustaches and everybody was putting these on,” Elson said.

    The photo went viral on social media. That's when the Louisville Cardinal student newspaper editor saw a post.



    “She was like well this is pretty racist and I was like, wow, you know what, it is pretty racist,” Olivia Krauth said.

    Krauth wrote a column about the photo. And students started becoming more aware and on Friday dozens of students sat outside of the president's office with a list of nine demands. The first demand is a public apology from Ramsey.

    The list continues including staff training each semester and immediate removal of the confederate statue between 2nd and 3rd streets.



    “We understand there are some demands. They're being reviewed I've not seen the full list at this point,” John Karman, U of L spokesperson, said.

    But until then students say they will continue to wait for their demands to be met.

    Looks like some big tits on the broad in the front row. Some of those people look too old. I hated old geezers who went to college late in life when I was in.

    There's nothing offensive about it.

    This is what the crowd at St. Patrick's Day Parade looks like in Dublin.
