An Inconvenient Koala Bethany Stotts, March 5, 2010
Students at the University of California at San Diego decided to launch a ghetto-themed Compton Cookout which satirizes black culture in celebration of Black History Month, according a February Los Angeles Times article. Promising a taste of life in the ghetto, the [partys] Facebook invitation contained many racist stereotypes, reported Larry Gordon. For example, it urged women to dress as ghetto chicks who usually have gold teeth, start fights and drama, and wear cheep clothes. It said the menu would include chicken and watermelon.
UC Irvines New University newspaper notes that This [cookout] was followed by a taping of the school-sponsored Koala T.V. featuring the editor of the publication calling the students condemning the event ungrateful n.
A February 20th update on The Koala Online website (nsfw) states,
The Koala would like to condemn the organizers of the Compton Cookout. If history has shown us anything, you need more black people at your party to have enough black-on-black violence to actually justify the name Compton. Shame on you. SHAME.
According to a Feb. 23 Foundation For Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) letter to the UCSD Chancellor, the Koala broadcast a defense of the party on UCSDs Student Run Television (SRTV).
and Shortly thereafter, Associated Students President Utsav Gupta shut down the station and froze funding for all student media at UCSD. FIRE supports both The Koala and the Compton Cookout attendees right to free speech and says that off-campus speech should not be investigated or prosecuted......

Seems like the media is not giving us an accurate version.
Read this, from a conservative source: —
“...Apparently, ‘The First Compton Cookout’ was not organized by fraternities, although some people involved in it did coincidently happen to be members of fraternities.
The organizer was an African-American radio “shock jock” who calls himself Jigga Jones or Jiggaboo Jones and hosts his own radio show on 92.5 kyhy (”Burbank Radio”) in Califoria.
Search YouTube for Compton Cookout or Jiggaboo Jones and you’ll see him taking credit for it and complaining because people are offended. He considers the event as a positive thing, an opportunity for all kinds of people “to get to be a N.... for one night.” (His words.)
In other words, the Compton Cookout had little, if anything, to do with UCSD. It was a radio PR stunt which involved non-students as well as some students.
Unfortunately, the UCSD administration has allowed the media to misinterpret and misreport (or at best, insufficiently report) the event. UCSD has allowed itself to be placed in defensive, no-win light, and activists have latched onto this and are exploiting it...”
I see... So like CSA, Soul Plane, and just about every black-targetted movie, it actually POKES FUN OF other blacks.
These guys can’t get it right.
