Makeshift KKK Hood Found On Statue On College Campus

March 4, 2010

California (ChattahBox) – A pillowcase with hand drawn symbols and made into a crude facsimile of a KKK hood has been found near a San Diego college library.

The ‘hood’ was found on a statue outside of the schools library at 11 P.M. last night, with a rose sticking out of the hand of the statue at UC San Diego.

This is one of several race-related incidents that have caused major tension on the campus in recent months.

The first incident was a ‘Compton Cookout” during Black History Month, where the participants were told to dress ‘ghetto’, and were served racially stereotypical food such as watermelon, fried chicken and malt liquor.

This was followed by several racial slurs used on a campus-funded television program.

But everything came to a head when a student, who was later caught and arrested, hung a noose in the college library.

The student later wrote an anonymous letter in the school paper apologizing, saying she had meant it as a symbol against the recent racial attacks, and that as a minority student she was not meaning to “add to their pain”.

Despite this apology, officials at the school are livid by the recent actions of the various students involved.

“We will not allow this incident, or any incident, to deter the progress we are making to change and heal our university community,” UCSD Chancellor Marye Anne Fox said of the most recent attack.

“We promised our campus community that those responsible for recent racial incidents would be punished to the full extent of all applicable laws, and we are following through on that promise.”
