Two New Hate Incidents Reported at UCD

In the past week, the UC Davis Police Department reported two hate incidents. One was noted on Monday by Campus Grounds reporting that there was graffiti found on a bridge in the Arboretum with obscene and racial remarks. The other which was discovered Tuesday was a racist symbol and remarks in a Men’s Restroom on campus. Incidents like these continue to be way too common and it is important that they be called out. We applaud the campus police for reporting these and want to make sure that they do not happen again. As a community, we must stand up to racism in any form that it might present itself, and work together in being proactive to building an ever inclusive community that takes in consideration each and every one of its residents.

    Does anybody not get that these “crimes” are committed by adolescents just trying to yank people’s chains?  Any attention will just make it more attractive for them.
