    UCSD Racism

    UCSD Racism Running Rampage

    Racial acts towards African-American students at University of California, San Diego (UCSD) leave Californians shocked. All of them occurred in a quick span of two weeks: Feb. 15 to March 1. Fortunately, all participants in the acts were caught and dealt with accordingly.

    On Feb. 15, a party was hosted outside UCSD, which was known as the “Compton Cookout”. The “Compton Cookout” is an off-campus, ghetto-themed party hosted by several fraternities to mock Black History Month. Participants were to dress up “ghetto-like” and they would be served with food like chicken, watermelon, cheap beer, and a purple sugar-water concoction named “dat Purple Drank”. The invitation itself was posted on Facebook, advertising all over the internet.

    Two other racist events occurred on Feb. 26 and March 1. On the seventh floor of the Geisel Library, a noose was found tied to a light. It shocked all the students across the campus and the authorities eventually found a girl who confessed to tying it as a joke. Then on March 1, a crude pillowcase cut as a KKK hood was displayed on a Dr. Seuss statue outside the campus library.

    These series of acts angered many students and brought in attention from Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Concerned for students at this school, Governor Schwarzenegger speaks out for them. “I am deeply troubled by the horrific incidents that recently took place on various campuses of the University of California system. The acts of racism and intolerance that we have witnessed are completely unacceptable and I join with the University of California President, Chancellors and student leaders in condemning these terrible incidents”, said Governor Schwarzenegger.

    Cries of protest rained throughout UCSD after these occurrences. Hundreds of students wore black on Feb. 26 and listened to students who suffered under these racially charged events. Dozens of other students occupied themselves in the chancellor’s office and hundreds protested outside to ensure that the hateful acts would cease.

    Even as the racist acts seem to make our world darker with hatred, the cries of protests ring hope for restored unity and protection of fellow students.

The invitation itself was posted on Facebook, advertising all over the internet. The party was not even concealed, openly displaying the fraternity’s racism towards African-Americans. The fraternity’s views are not shared by all. Freshman Allen Miao said, “Their mockery of the African-American race, especially during a month that recognizes their heritage, demonstrates how apathetic and heartless this fraternity is.”

    Two other racist events occurred on Feb. 26 and Mar. 1. On the seventh floor of the Geisel Library, a noose was found tied to a light. It shocked all the students across the campus and the authorities eventually found a girl who confessed to tying it as a joke. Then on Mar. 1, a crude pillowcase cut as a KKK hood was displayed on a Dr. Seuss statue outside the campus library. Both of these act as a reminder of the racial prejudice before the Civil War, implying that the racism towards African-Americans is still present.
