(Sacramento) Speaker Karen Bass (D-Los Angeles) joined Assistant Speaker pro Tempore Isadore Hall, III (D-Compton) and other legislators on the steps of the State Capitol to publicly condemn a racially offensive student event hosted recently by students of the University of California, San Diego. The event called the, Compton Cookout was organized by members of various Greek fraternal organizations and encouraged participants to mock Black History Month by promoting negative and offensive racial and gender stereotypes. Speaker Bass says university officials should investigate the organizers of the event and determine what sanctions, including suspension, should be taken against the fraternity or fraternities responsible for the event.
