"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.I really hate being right all the time.
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."
This incident, which has now garnered NATIONAL attention is indicative of the end result of the teachings of Politically Correct Bullshit. The school has set itself up for failure by not nipping this in the bud as soon as it started. All it needed to do was say that the party was off campus, therefor had nothing to do with them. Instead, now, in the name of PCBS they have created a monster that seems never ending, they capitulated to many of the demands of the black student union, most of which were ridiculous. They have held sophomoric "teach-ins", that the students have only used as a platform to push their freedom of speech stifling message.
