Asian and Black students at the University of Texas have recently come under attack from a random group throwing bleach filled balloons. YOu would think that in 2012 all this silly racism would be dead.

The University of Texas in Austin is reeling from reports of black and Asian students seemingly being targeted and hit with bleach-filled balloons while off campus.Dozens of students, alumni and faculty protested the attacks on campus Tuesday, after four students filed reports with the UT police department Monday saying they had been targeted.Each of the students reported being hit while walking near West Campus apartments, a location that is off UT’s campus, according to Cindy Posey, public information officer for the UT police department.The incidents occurred from June through September, but students only came forward to report the attacks after being contacted by the UT police chief, Posey said.”We had heard at UT rumors of incidents that had happened, but no one had ever filed a report,” Posey said. “Our chief of police did his own research, found some things on Facebook, and heard about a couple of people who were hit by balloons.
