Have you experienced similar thoughtless insensitive treatment at your campus? Tell us about it and click here to read more about incidents of racism on college campuses across this country. Be sure to contact your campus’ minority affairs office if such an incident occurs and you need help. -NewsOne Staff

From HuffingtonPost.com:

The woman who confessed to hanging a noose in a University of California-San Diego library issued today an apology in the The Guardian, the school’s student paper.

The woman, who remains anonymous, claims that the act was an unfortunate and inadvertent mistake. She wrote:

I found a small piece of rope on the ground earlier in the day [Tuesday, Feb. 23]. While I was hanging out with my friends a bit later, we tried jump-roping with it and making it into a lasso. My friend then took the rope and tied it into a noose. I innocently marveled at his ability to tie a noose, without thinking of any of its connotations or the current racial climate at UCSD … Three days later, on Friday morning, I found out that the noose had been found and construed as another racist act on campus. I felt so ashamed and embarrassed, and the first thing I did was call the campus police and confess. I was hoping to clarify that this was not an act of racism before the incident got a full reaction from the campus.

[Updated 02.27.10, 2:24 p.m.] –Police Investigate Noose Found At UC San Diego After “Compton Cookout”

SAN DIEGO — An hours-long student takeover of the chancellor’s office at the University of California, San Diego, is over.

Dozens of students stormed the office earlier Friday, angry over several recent racially charged campus incidents.

Text continues after gallery…

They occupied the office for several hours before leaving peacefully at sundown, about the same time that leaders of the university’s Black Student Union ended talks with administrators in a nearby conference room. The students presented a list of 32 demands, including more funding for African-American classes and campus activities.

Student leaders told hundreds of supporters outside the chancellor’s office that they were unhappy with the administration’s response and would resume talks with school officials on Monday morning.

University spokesman Jeff Gattas says no arrests were made and no property was damaged during the takeover.
