  1. Wow, that girl--the lemming with the bad, over-processed hair--is a total hag. Too bad she can't think of anyone but herself. Witch!

  2. The UCLA student's comments are disgraceful. But she was clearly under a lot of stress with her exams, and was perhaps venting (albeit in a very inappropriate manner and forum). This incident will undoubtedly compromise the value of her UCLA education, and will haunt her for several years. I hope it will cause her to engage in some serious soul-searching about tolerance, respect and personal responsibility.

  3. This rebuttal to the racist hag is a hoot:

  4. The UCLA student's rant was so over the top that you wonder if she's just fishing for publicity. Sean Hannity is calling her right now offering her a contract with Fox News.

  5. My favourite part of her rant is when she says "don't take this the wrong way". What way exactly are we supposed to take your racial slurs? And who thinks we might be witnessing the next Mrs. Donald Trump? She would a logical inclusion in his Towers.

  6. I work at UCLA and have to say she's not very bright. Did she post this on the Internet without thinking her fellow classmates might not see this? We're a pretty liberal campus, and yes, a very multinational and multicultural place. She's going to have to face down some less than welcoming stares. And more so, as Jimmy says, her video is going to exist on the Internet for future employers to find. She'd better find some way to atone for her stupidity, otherwise this could potentially -- and rightfully so -- follow her for decades.

    Nice one Soulbrotha! This is a brilliantly funny response to the pole-dancing UCLA student.

  9. great comment i was told once which has forever changed the way I speak..

    "Anything that comes before 'but' and after 'because' is Bullsh*t"

  10. I have no problem with the student's comments. Obviously she was annoyed by consistently disrespectful behavior, particularly in the library. That could make a person angry, especially when it's encoded (i.e. foreign-language) noise, instead of something that you can at least evaluate for why it's interrupting you.

  11. @Randy - It doesn't matter whether her comments are valid. She needs to realise that she cannot express them in the manner that she chose to, i.e. representing UCLA.

  12. That sax guy needs to LEARN THE OTHER VERSES.

  13. Video posted by Soulbrotha: GENIUS.

    Realistically, the girl could politely go up to the individual(s) talking on their phones, and ask them to take their conversations outside. I've done it. It doesn't matter if it's foreign language or not ("to decode", regardless that even though it's loud, it's none of your business); all it takes is a simple request, and if they don't comply, talk to someone who works there.

    I think that people today rant in the public domain and not expect nor care of its ultimate consequences, especially when talking offensively of a particular set of people. Sorry, honey, you may be stressed, but learn how to curb yourself, like most smart people do.
