Major protests over state budget cuts are planned throughout California this week, and tensions are rising over not only the fiscal situation, but other issues. On Friday, the University of California at San Diego saw another racial incident when a noose was found in the library, setting off a new round of rallies. Students were already angry over a party mocking black students and a television show that defended the party. On Saturday, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger condemned “intolerable acts of racism and incivility” at the university. Late Thursday night, a protest at the University of California at Berkeley included the trashing of some campus buildings and some smashed windows of nearby businesses, The Oakland Tribune reported.
