TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) -

The U.S. Attorney in Birmingham says while her office hasn't launched an investigation into the allegations of racial discrimination at the University of Alabama, they are watching the situation.

Meanwhile, some former student leaders who weren't always one the same page when they were on campus have take out an ad in the campus newspaper.

More than a dozen former students, including SGA presidents, greek members and African American association members commend some students for having the courage to speak up against the discrimination.

These alumni hope the administration, board of trustees and all greek organizations will encourage diversity going forward.

"I want to see all practices and policies that promote or allow segregation and discrimination at the University of Alabama to be completely eliminated," Sherrel Stewart, a former SGA Senator and Crimson and White editor, said.
