    Wow is this guy joking? Way to let the Pikes who started this shit get on their way to feeling like martyrs and scapegoats.

    First of all, are you saying this Wasn’t a mockery of black history month?

    This party did not celebrate black achievements, but made everything white people generally find distasteful in stereotypical “black culture” the party theme. But he argues that that must be OK because frat parties make fun of everyone, right? That’s implicitly assuming both that it’s OK to mock those other groups and that their issues and the issues black people face every day – especially the institutional racism at UCSD that the Pike party really just made more abundantly clear than anything else – are all the same.

    The dumbest thing he wrote in this description was his comparison of the real offense people took to the original Compton Cookout event description to “children hurling canned PC responses at Stephen Colbert for being offensively conservative. Duh!” People who don’t understand that Colbert’s persona is a joke are basically mentally disabled, and that’s like saying anyone who doesn’t find the display of ignorance from the uber white frat funny is the same.

    I actually agree that the emails were inane and just another instance of UCSD saving face (anyone remember that article about the homeless UCSD student who’s now sleeping in his car? That last little insertion “UCSD administrators knew nothing about this and want students to know emergency loans are available…), and that it Isn’t appropriate to expel or suspend the event creators, because yes, it was an off-campus event and they have the same right to free speech as anyone else. Idiots.

    “Don’t let ignorance and stupidity get in the way of our good time and let us set a precedent before this gets out of hand. We all must stand behind our fellow students. It would be nothing short of a tragedy for any students to suffer any punishment for what they wrote on a facebook page.”
    UGH! He’s portraying a concerned reaction over evidence of ideological tyranny at UCSD into arbitrarily politically correct over-sensitivity?! That’s actually a smart move in protecting his Bros, now no one’s going to want to sound OVER-PC.

    So, let me be the first to comment here,
    Mike Randazzo and any other DSP members involved in and supporting this party – you are fucking arrogant idiots. Think the news articles, blogs, and Facebook-page turned forums are an over-reaction? They’re IMPORTANT, because all they’re doing – aside from embarrassing bros like you – is bringing to light the institutional racism at the university and how the REST of us don’t want to think and act. This Cookout Part II is just..BRATTY! As petty as it gets.

    Suburban white kids who have never faced racism / getting picked on for being different need to STFU and go back to their sheltered communities where they can watch rap videos in safety and spend their parents’ money on black products that fit their image of what black culture ish. There is plenty of intellectual black artists conscious black rappers but what sells is what white kids choose to buy SO STOP USING RAP AS AN EXCUSE

    I found this via Racialicious.com. There’s a good analysis of the backlash involved when racism is clearly pointed out.
