USC Racial Profiling? Parties Cause Racism ChargesBy: Sean Patterson - May 7, 2013
Los Angeles police are no strangers to racial scandal, but now even USC students are claiming the department has racist tendencies.
According to a Fox 11 report on the incident, two parties directly across the street from one another received very different treatment this weekend. One house party was attended by mostly white students, and the other by mostly black. When dozens of police in riot gear showed up, witnesses stated, the white party was told to quiet down while the black party was dispersed. Six people were arrested in the aftermath.
Charges of excessive force and racial bias have been levied against the LAPD and a student protest took place on campus this week. According to the Fox 11 report, the LAPD and USC administrators will be meeting to discuss a possible forum on racial profiling.
