Am I the only person who wondered if the noose hanger, who referred to herself as a “minority student,” is really white? Especially given the number of people who were quick to point out that “whites are a minority on the UCSD campus.”
Did you see the news footage of one of the guys responsible for the “Compton Cookout” party scurrying away from the camera like a rat? He was saying, “Please, just leave me alone,” while covering his face. It was like a perp walk.
Why was the media so quick to keep insisting that Asian Americans don’t protest racism? The video and the photographs showed people who appeared to be Asian in many of the protests.
Don’t you have to wonder if this guy and this guy are just stupider than average? While most of the original “Compton Cookout” people hid and were protected by their fraternity and the university, these two bozos felt like stepping into it deeper. They saw that people were hurt and angry by the events on campus, and chose to purposefully further racist actions. Randazzo even sought to be on the news to broadcast his racism.
What do Elliot Van Nostrand, Cody Fleischauer, Jeff Lin (oh, my brother!), Arnold Beirith, Jordan Peana, Otto Cipolla III, Glenn Bona, Eric Denker and Alex Placek have to say for themselves now? Van Nostrand deleted his facebook profile. What about all those people who went to the party? Have they posted happy blackface photos on their facebook pages?
I feel like the incidents at UCSD could provide at least a dozen lengthy blog posts, but frankly I just don’t have enough time in my life.
