    UC Racism

    Post  raphaellu on Tue Mar 09, 2010 11:14 am

    “Why can’t people be blind to the color of skin!?” This life long question was yet again brought up with the racial acts that surfaced its ugly face on various UC campuses around the state.
    On Feb. 14 the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity group from the University of California San Diego (UCSD), organized a party named “Compton Cookout.” This event displayed racial stereotypical lifestyle of African-American. Foods served at the cookout were the notorious combo of fried chicken and watermelon.” Actions displayed at the event were derogatory.
    On the campus of University of California Davis (UCD), the Jewish students were horrified to find swastikas carved into their dorm room. The doors near the campus’s Gay, Lesbian, and Transgender Resource Center were also filled with terms insulting the gay population.
    These select events show us that our many people in our state are still ignorant. These racial acts still show the lack of unity amongst the people. The students on these and surround campuses are outraged. These universities should be a place too learn, for people to share there common goal, and tough out life together as one and not a place to feel insecure because of skin color. Perhaps America still has some racial healing to do. Even after segregation was outlawed in 1954, we still see today the obvious line between races.

    “Why can’t people be blind to the color of skin [skin color] !?” This life long [lifelong] question was yet again brought up with the racial acts that surfaced its ugly face on various UC campuses around the state.
    On Feb. 14 the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity group from the University of California San Diego (UCSD), organized a party named “Compton Cookout.” This event displayed racial stereotypical lifestyle of African-American [racial stereotypes of the lifestyle of African-Amercans]. Foods served at the cookout were the notorious combo of fried chicken and watermelon.” [delete] Actions displayed at the event were derogatory.
    A week after the event [insert comma] campus officials found a noose hanging in the bathrooms of University of California Santa Cruz (UCSC0 [UCSC] and the library at UCSD. The statue of Dr. Seuss at UCSD was adorned by a makeshift Ku Klux Klan hood fashioned out of a pillowcase.
    On the campus of University of California Davis (UCD), the Jewish students were horrified to find swastikas carved into their dorm room. The doors near the campus’s [campus'] Gay, Lesbian, and Transgender Resource Center were also filled with terms insulting the gay population.
    The racial acts scream the lack of unity [awkward] amongst the people. The students on these and surrounding campuses are outraged. These universities should be a place too [to] learn, for people to share there common goal [common goals], and tough out life together as one and not a place to feel insecure because of skin color [...not just skin color... what about Jews? Gays?...]. Perhaps America still has some racial healing to do. Even after segregation was outlawed in 1954, we still see today the obvious line between races
    These events sparked one after the other, a chain reaction.

    The racial show the lack of unity amongst the people. The students on these and surrounding campuses are outraged. These universities should be a place to learn, for people to share common goals, and tough out life together as one-not a place to feel insecure because of skin color, religion, or sexuality. Perhaps America still has some racial healing to do. Even after segregation was outlawed in 1954, we still see today the obvious line between races. Fresh man Dominique Ortiz believes racism is still around because “people see other people and don't see themselves. They think that if someone doesn’t look like them then there’s something wrong with them and that’s how it was back in the day. Today we still have it because people will always see each other as a threat just because of the color of their skin.”
