Horrendously Disrespectful Signs Appear on UCLA's Campus

Horrendously Disrespectful Signs Appear on UCLA's Campus

It began on Tuesday when a sign that read "asian women R Honkie white*-boy worshipping Whores" was taped to a Vietnamese Student Union sign on UCLA's campus. The following day, another sign that read "Asian Women are White-Boy Worshipping Sluts" was found in the women's bathroom of Powell Library. So much for higher learning.

Anees Hasnain, who discovered the first sign, was understandably concerned. "How can this be our home if my peers do not feel safe?"Hasnain said to a crowd of a hundred people who convened where the first letter was found. 

Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Janina Montero spoke at the rally, saying "(The administration wants) to express support and concern...I want to make sure that all the students here, regardless of their ethnicity, background or situation, know that this is unacceptable."

The Asian Pacific Coalition wants to hold a forum in the Student Activities Center on Dec. 5 to discuss campus affairs, and campus police are investigating both incidents.
