// ]]>SAN DIEGO—Police at the University of California, San Diego, are investigating a noose that was found in a campus building in what may be the latest in a series of racially charged pranks.
To many African-Americans, nooses are a symbol of historical oppression and lynchings.
In February, an off-campus party mocking Black History Month sparked controversy and campus protests were held after a noose was found dangling in the library. A student later admitted placing it, apologized and was suspended.
In March, a KKK-style hood was found draped over a campus statue.
Blacks comprise less than 2 percent of UCSD undergraduates.
