The best and the brightest at California Universities have been replaced with the crudest and rudest.
A seventeen year old student was placed in an eight person dorm suite with apparently three racist roommates. Those supervising the dorms were aware the racists were flouting the traitorous confederate flag with only one Black student in the suite. They did nothing. The harassment included false imprisonment and creating an atmosphere of hate that negatively impacted the victimized student's studies.
SAN JOSE -- First, his white roommates nicknamed him "Three-fifths," referring to the way the government once counted blacks as just a fraction of a person. When he protested, they dubbed him "Fraction."WTF is wrong with people?
Then they outfitted the four-bedroom dormitory suite they shared with a Confederate flag. They locked him in his room. They wrote the "N-word" on a dry-erase board in the living room. They fastened a bicycle lock around his neck and told him they lost the keys, then tried it again a few weeks later.
It may sound like something out of the civil rights struggles of the 1960s. But police reports indicate it happened last month in the Obama era to a black student at San Jose State University, a liberal campus boasting statues of Olympic athletes making a black power salute.
Late Wednesday, prosecutors filed misdemeanor hate-crime and battery charges against three of the student's roommates over the alleged hazing, which has sparked anger in the community and on the diverse campus. The men are Logan Beaschler, 18, of Bakersfield; Joseph Bomgardner, 19, of Clovis; and Colin Warren, 18, of Woodacre.
