Racial Tensions At UCSD Continue

Day 2: Live on campus television, students call other students "ungrateful ni**ers"

Day 2: Paper found in campus TV studio with words "Compton Lynching"

Day 3: Noose found in the library & letter to the campus newspaper saying "More to come"

Is it still being blown out of proportion??

Racial Tensions At UCSD Continue

1. California Defender, define "selfish-gain." Do you mean requiring the university to educate their students beyond the classroom? Improving campus climate to improve campus diversity, so people have a chance to learn from other students?? Are these things selfish?

2. Everyone at UCSD is not welcoming. The student who tags doors with swastikas and the word "ni**er" are NOT welcoming. There have been countless instances like this one.

3. The man posing as the originator of the event "Jiggaboo Jones" is lying to capitalize on the publicity. If he was such a proud host, I doubt he would have removed the facebook invite. Come on, think a little harder people.

This event is not isolated it is the straw that broke the camel's back. I do believe in free speech, I do believe those students had the right to throw whatever party they wanted. I also believe that throwing the party signifies a larger ignorance that the University should try to rectify. Unviersities create future citizens. They have to accept that policy beyond the publicity stunts.

Thank you and good day.
