Students of all races marched through the streets of UK's campus Wednesday night demanding racial tolerance.

The group of students responded to what they say has been years of sweeping racial intolerance and hate crimes under the rug. The students cited the discovery of an effigy hanging in a tree as the latest infraction on racial goodwill.

The students say University officials need to take all incidents as warning signs of larger racial issues, and deal with problems campus wide.
