Trump Chalkings

Title

Trump Chalkings

Description

On the night of Friday April 8th, the University of California, San Diego campus was covered with anti-Mexican slogans chalked by supporters of presidential candidate, Donald Trump. Following a string of similar events throughout the country (including incidents at UC Berkeley, Santa Barbara, and Riverside), slogans supporting Trump have persistently coincided with xenophobic attacks against underrepresented communities, specifically Latino, Black, Arab and Muslim students. The recent chalking incident at UCSD specifically targeted incoming admitted students of Mexican descent. The perpetrators chalked outside of the Raza Resource Centro, a resource center collaborating in the weekend-long admission Triton Day welcoming celebration for incoming students (Lumumba-Zapata Collective, 2016).
