San Diego 6: A group of University of California at San Diego students mock Black History Month with a ghetto-themed party called the Compton Cookout. For the off-campus party, guys were encouraged to wear chains and high top tennis shoes and girls were encouraged to be ghetto-chicks with gold teeth and wear cheap clothes.
"When I saw that picture I was hurt. I was disgusted," says UCSD student Jasmine Phillips.
Initially the University spokesperson said nobody had been punished because the party wasn't sanctioned by the University or any of its campus organizations. But the Vice Chancellor says members of at least three on campus fraternities were involved with the party.
"By not punishing the children they are basically saying racism is okay," says a third year student.
The Vice Chancellor is now saying the incident is under investigation, so it's too early to tell if the students involved will be punished. She did say the students are being interviewed and they are receiving counseling.
"That's important to me, that they learn from this incident," says Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Penny Rue.
African Americans make up about 2% of the student population. Some say racism is not a new problem on campus and feel a teach-in being put on by the University to address the problem doesn't go far enough.
"This is beyond a teach-in. This is beyond 'let's have a learning lesson.' This is like, 'let's make an example of these students.'"
The University says it is also launching a "Not in our Community" campaign on Facebook to allow people to vent their outrage about the party.
