UC San Diego minority student responsible for hanging a noose in campus library

Posted by iusbvision on March 2, 2010

Seems like a big shock, except to those who have done the research. Most of the known “outrageous” examples racial symbols and race based “propaganda attacks” on campus are either committed by the alleged minority victims or other minorities. Ann Coulter had a chapter in her book just about these incidents.

The radical left tries to spread fear by spreading a narrative that klansmen are everywhere. I may be a student but I am older than most of my professors. As time goes on it seems to me that the nuts over at stormfront are likely the same couple of hundred people around the world that all talk to each other. I have never met or seen a white supremacist or a skinhead or a klansman. I have never seen anyone in real life who holds that view, but I have seen members of the faculty who want central control over our society and economy and I have talked to antisemitic leftist faculty as well. As a student it is just a matter of time before a professor asks you to do some research on the stormfront crowd. Their rhetoric, view and presentation is so over the top and silly I felt compelled to laugh out loud at them because they are so ridiculous.

L.A. Times:

The UC San Diego student reportedly responsible for hanging a noose last week in a campus library issued a public, but anonymous, apology Monday and said she had no racist motivation.

The noose’s discovery set off protests at a school that is already tense from recent racially charged episodes and triggered condemnations from UC leaders and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

In a letter published Monday on the front page of the UC San Diego student newspaper, the Guardian, the student wrote that the incident was “a mindless act and stupid mistake” and was not meant to recall the lynching of blacks.

“As a minority student who sympathizes with the students that have been affected by the recent issues on campus, I am distraught to know that I have unintentionally added to their pain,” the student wrote. She was suspended Friday and remains under investigation for a possible hate crime.

Incidents like these are not so uncommon.

Human Events Magazine:

Out of legions, here are just a few hoax hate crimes on college campuses.

— In 1997, at Duke University, a black doll was found hanging by a noose from a tree at the precise spot where the Black Student Alliance was to be holding a rally against racism. Two black students later admitted they were the culprits and were immediately praised for bringing attention to the problem of racism on campus. Indeed, four years later the president of Duke gave a baccalaureate address nostalgically describing the hoax as a “protest” against racism. Next stop: the Nobel Peace Prize.

— In 2003, vile racial epithets were scrawled on the dorm room doors at Ole Miss, producing mass protests and a “Say No to Racism” march. And then it turned out the graffiti had been written by black students, against whom no charges were brought. A “Say Yes to Racism” rally at Ole Miss was later canceled due to lack of interest.

— In 2005, obscenity-laced racist and anti-Semitic messages appeared on dormitory walls at the College of Wooster in Ohio. The fliers were instantly blamed on “typical white males,” even though all the letter I’s in the epithets were dotted with little hearts. Breadcrumbs left by the culprits included the message “Vote Goldwater” among the obscenities. The matter was dropped and flushed down the memory hole when the perpetrators turned out to be a group of leftist students led by a black studies major.

— Just this year, anti-Muslim fliers were put out on the George Washington University campus — by leftists, including a member of “Iraq Veterans Against War.” When it was thought the leaflets were from the conservative group Young Americans For Freedom, the dean called for the expulsion of the culprits and the university demanded that YAF officers sign a statement disavowing “hate speech.” But when it turned out leftists had distributed the fliers, the matter was dropped faster than Larry Craig was dropped from Mitt Romney’s campaign.

The one real example of racism on a college campus in recent memory was perpetrated against white men of the Duke lacrosse team. As that injustice was being perpetrated, gender and ethnic professors at Duke kept droning on about the “racism and sexism” students “live with every day” — as the professors put it in an open letter that falsely presumed the players were guilty of rape. We don’t expect a rally against the prejudiced professors, but an apology might be nice.

 

We had our own similar scandal at IU when IUPUI student Keith Sampson was charged with racial harassment by the IUPUI administration for reading a book about how the Klan attacked Notre Dame University in 1925. IUPUI even went so far as to shamelessly smear him in the national press. IUSB Vision Editor Chuck Norton took an active role in Sampson’s defense. When it was all over with IUPUI admitted its false smears against Sampson and sent him a letter of apology.

The faculty and the administration lined up against Sampson. When a couple of professors asked about academic freedom to read a book in a faculty meeting the IUPUI Black Faculty and Staff Council levied a not so thinly veiled threats of racism to stop any serious inquiry in the matter.

IUPUI hired an outside investigator who ended up having racially charged problems herself. IUPUI could not have handled the situation more poorly or dishonestly.

During the ordeal I learned that radicalized “EEOC officers” and “judicial affairs officers” have the view that you are presumed guilty if you are white because of what they refer to as “white privilege”.  Quinn’s Laws define it thusly:  “white privilege is racist idea used by leftist proponents of group politics to explain away the economic and social failure of ‘group politics’”. Those who are radicalized frame everything in marxist conflict theory, white vs black, rich vs poor, man vs women etc. They need incidents like these to justify their world view even if they have to invent them out of thin air. They do this in the name of “freedom” or “diversity” but the real goal is just to increase one’s own power. In this regard Lillian Charleston and David Duke are very much alike.

Imagine how flawed our universities must be to have this number of minority students feeling the need to pull off these racial PR stunts. It is sad.
