This morning at the annual Students of Color Conference (SOCC) a discriminatory, derogatory, and disappointing message was found on a tree of the UC Davis campus. The message was written on a yellow ribbon tied to a tree. The yellow ribbon was amongst many placed on trees throughout the campus in support and remembrance of Veteran’s day. The message read: “Use me as a noose.”
This hate crime brings back unfortunate actions and sentiments of the past when a noose was found in the library of UC San Diego in 2010. It is representative of the hate and bigotry still present across our UC campus climate and is a most unfortunate situation coinciding with the occurrence of a progressive and peaceful conference where students across UC gather annually to combat such discrimination and hate.
A picture of the ribbon to follow soon.
