Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

Cali Racism

with one comment

The governator of California talked about how upset he was about the recent acts of racism that occurred on the campuses in Davis. Some of these acts included a noose that was discovered in the library less than two weeks after the Compton-cookout party that mocked Black History Month where students urged people to dress as ghetto stereotypes and promised there would be chicken, watermelon and malt liquor and a Jewish student earlier this week that found a swastika carved into her dorm room door. What’s the cause for all this? Why do things like this happen? and more importantly what can we do to stop these things from happening?

  1. I think its a form of ignorance mostly, because the people that do this things probably do not realize the effect of it or how much it may offend people. Or in some cases, with the noose, it’s intentional racial hatred. We can only do so much to curb these activities with the freedom of speech but I feel that it has become such a problem that we should look into prosecuting these people more.
