Hatred and idiocy again shows it's face on the UCSD campus after the shameful Compton Cookout incident. A noose was found hanging from a light fixture in the UCSD library yesterday. If this is a joke, it is NOT FUNNY. If it is racism then it must be stopped. My daughter attends that school, her dorm mates are a wonderful, racially diverse groups of girls, just the kind of 'melting pot' environment that I want her in. Obviously, there are all horrified as to what has happened. There is a student rally against such hatred planned for outside the library this morning at 8 am PST. Please give all the enouragement and support that you can to the students and faculty there to help stop such events from occurrng again.
