Black students at the University of California at San Diego declared a "racial state of emergency" on Friday following a second racial incident in a week, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported. In the first incident, some students held a party mocking Black History Month. Then a student group broadcast a live segment on a closed circuit television network for the university, supporting the party and using a derogatory term for black people. At a meeting with university leaders, black students won pledges to provide more money for ethnic studies programs. On other student demands -- such as adding a "diversity sensitivity requirement" for undergraduates -- the students were told that administrators would study the ideas.
