UCLA is investigating a series of racist, sexist signs recently posted around their campus.
One sign said “asian women R Honkie white-boy worshipping Whores,” and was attached to a Vietnamese Student Union poster.
Another disgusting statement – “Asian Women are White-Boy Worshipping Sluts” – was found written on a bathroom wall.
Earlier this year, Latino UCLA students found racial slurs written on the door of their apartment building.
The Vietnamese Student Union will hold a rally in front of Kerckhoff Hall at noon Thursday to discuss this week’s and prior incidents of racism. The Asian Pacific Coalition also plans to host a forum on Dec. 5 to discuss the recent climate on campus and cultural sensitivity.
Earlier this year, Latino UCLA students living in an off-campus apartment woke up to find the following racial slurs written in black marker across their door: “you rude ignorant spic c*nts,” “dirty Meximelt b*tches,” and “go eat some refried beans and shut up.”
The incidents follow an infamous racist rant called “Asians in the Library” posted to YouTube in 2011 by UCLA student Alexandra Wallace.

How can we make college campuses a safe, inclusive place for all students?
