Diversity Is Strength! It`s Also…The Incredible UCSD Hate Crime Hoax
There`s a textbook response to a
Hate Crime Hoax: the Main Stream Media creates a

demanding investigations, sensitivity training, and
swift justice to the perpetrator of the terrible crime.
But when it turns out that a left wing and/or
minority student is actually responsible, then they

We can only wish for such a
textbook response at University of California at San
Diego, which is going through what dozens of outlets are
"a string of racist incidents". As so often,
they have a pesky habit of being committed by
minorities. But despite these revelations,
administrators, politicians, the media, and minority
students continue with their hysterics as if they were
committed by white students.
The first outbreak of
insensitivity was the
"Compton Cookout" held on February 15, allegedly
by UCSD`s Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity. The cookout was a
politically incorrect party where attendees—many of whom
were minorities—ate watermelon and
fried chicken, drank
malt liquor, and listened to
music. Some of the attendees wore black face.

You get the idea.
Miss Keflezighi`s claim that the UCSD administration`s
holding special events specifically to address the
concerns of Black Student Union was trying to make them
especially bizarre given how the school actually treated
critics of the whiny minority groups. Thus a campus

like to condemn the organizers of the Compton Cookout.

The student government responded to this obvious
satire by shutting down the entire Student Run TV
station, and freezing funds of 33 student groups.

There`s one huge problem with all this: the Compton
Cookout party was not held on the UCSD campus and was
not organized by the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity. Rather,
it was organized by an African American comedian and
non-student named Nipsey Washington, whose stage name is
to celebrate the release of his new DVD. Jones had held
these parties across the country for years, including at
UCSD. In fact, he toned down the title from the previous
This should have been obvious from the beginning. The
invitation to the event had a picture of Jones with a
T-Shirt with his name on it.
To his great credit, Jones has made an impassioned
attack on the politically correct activists on his
website that is worth
quoting at length,
mongering black people had told a pack of lies about our
event stating that a White Fraternity and several
members of the KKK threw a Racist party that made fun of
black people. This lie was quickly soaked up by people
with some kind of political agenda to spread hate and
discontent among people who attend UCSD.
“The divisive few
told a `Woa is me` tale of how all blacks at UCSD are
almost lynched in trees seemingly everyday. Members of
the media ate this up because this type of story sells
papers, gets people pissed off and keeps them tuning in.
Blog sites went crazy and facebook fascists took their
laptops and started the witch hunt that would ruin the
reputations of several good hearted people and their
families with their inaccurate statements…
“As I jumped in and
pulled the curtain back exposing the fact that it was
never a racist event and explained the whole mix-up, I
was hung up on, called an uncle tom and was accused of
getting paid off to `Cover for the Racists`…
“The Compton Cookout
was simply a great chance to knock down the walls of
racial division and to get all sides to enjoy poking fun
at all elements of racial tension. Some of these groups
like The `Black Student Union` and their connected
`political activists` won`t allow this progress because
it threatens their very existence. They simply can`t
have events like this because it undermines their
foothold and exposes the fact that they are obsolete and
in soon need of being disbanded. These political hacks
played to your fears and suspicions instead of letting
you all in on the whole story. The really sad part is
many of you ran into the streets with `Torches &
Pitchforks` without thinking about the fact that maybe
someone had been withholding valuable information. This
reminds me of something so familiar….”
Jones contacted the university, the media, and
politicians explaining that he, rather than the students
organized the event, and if they wanted to get upset at
someone, it should be him. They all ignored him. Other
than the redoubtable former mayor of San Diego and Radio
Talk Show Host
no one in the
MSM has covered this aspect of the story.
The MSM simply would not let this inconvenient fact get
in the way of the way of the lynch mob. A recent Google
News Search of "Compton Cookout" revealed 1,184 stories.

On March 1, The LA
"Beyond a `Compton Cookout`," began,
"Now we know the truth." But The Truth was not that the alleged
racist fraternity party was actually hosted by a black
comedian, but rather.
"Compton Cookout" at UC San Diego, where members of the
Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity invited guests to celebrate
Black History Month dressed as their favorite ghetto
stereotypes, was not an isolated incident. Nor can it be
chalked up to standard-issue frat behavior, in which a
degree of misogyny, bigotry and drunken insensitivity is
often shrugged off as normal college hijinks."
What are the other
incidents that make this incident non-“isolated”?

predictable response ensued. Students stormed the
offices of Chancellor Marye Anne Fox and held a sit in

Students at other colleges held similar protests. At UC
Berkeley students set trash cans ablaze, broke into a
library under renovation where they smashed windows and
Instead of denouncing this
lawlessness, the ten Chancellors of the University of

Amazingly, this revelation

the BSU, the media, and other assorted victimologists

Given how the administration, media, and politicians
bend over backward to address the whining of the Black
Student Union and other groups, it`s hard to say exactly
how the school is really an inhospitable environment to
African Americans. Their real gripe: there are not
enough blacks on campus. Of course the politicians and
the school administration would love nothing more than
to let unqualified minorities on campus. But the people
of California, who voted out
race preferences, do not agree.
The truth is these left wing minority student
are not rebels at all. They are on the exact same side
of the political, media, and academic establishment.

child can get the education they deserve…"
