UCLA Vandals Call Asian Women 'Honkie white-boy worshipping Whores'
The Vietnamese Student Union sign at UCLA was hit this week by vandalism calling Asian women "Honkie white-boy worshipping Whores."
Campus police are investigating the incident, which was first noted by a student on Tuesday morning, according to The Daily Bruin.
A piece of paper was hung up over the student union sign that hangs on the fourth floor of Kerckhoff Hall. It said "asian women R Honkie white-boy worshipping Whores" and had an obscene hand gesture, the Bruin reports. The Vietnamese Student Union plans to hold a rally about the "campus climate" on Thursday at noon.
Roman Nguyen, president of the Vietnamese Student Union, told the Bruin: "I was really offended, especially by the fact it was printed and someone took the time to post this, because that means it was something that was deliberate and planned for."
UCLA police spokeswoman Nancy Greenstein told the LA Weekly, "We take reports of any hate situations very seriously."
The vandalism calls to mind the infamous Anti-Asian diatribe by one-time UCLA student Alexandra Wallace.
