San Diego students storm offices after noose found

SAN DIEGO (AP) – Anger boiled over on the University of California San Diego campus Friday, where students took over the chancellor’s office for several hours to protest the hanging of a noose in a campus library.

Students wearing red handkerchiefs over their faces blocked the doors to Chancellor Marye Anne Fox’s offices for hours, while more students inside chanted “Real pain, real change.”

They left the office peacefully at sundown, about the same time that leaders of the university’s Black Student Union ended talks with administrators in a nearby conference room over demands that include more boosting the African-American curriculum and campus activities. A university spokesman, Jeff Gattas, said there were no arrests and no property was damaged during the takeover.

The noose found dangling from a light fixture on the seventh floor of Geisel Library on Thursday night was the latest in a string of racially charged incidents in the university community, authorities said Friday. Less than two weeks ago, an off-campus party mocking Black History Month ignited racial tensions.

You have got to be kidding me, THIS is the cause of a racially charged incident?


I can see how it might be the source of some racial tension if there was an effigy attached, one that may be of a particular ethnicity, and yeah, if there had actually been a body attached to the noose, of a particular ethnicity, that too would qualify as a racially charged incident.

But this was over a noose. Just a plain old noose.

A University of California statement said a student admitted she and two other people were responsible. The statement did not identify the students or their race or include a motive.

In a news conference Friday afternoon, Fox said the student has been suspended but declined to discuss her motive or other students involved.

Motive? Are they serious? These are college kids, probably Frat or Sorority kids. They don’t need a motive, all they need is an idea and an opportunity. Unless, unless I say, unless they are members of The Old South Fraternity, Kappa Alpha.

Everyone knows what an EVIL bunch of racists KA is. :?
