UCLA students protesting “black lives matters” at the campus mall have sparked a backlash.
According to a student newspaper, the protesters are “anti-Semitic, misogynistic, racist, and are racist to the core.”
The newspaper reported that the students “have called for a boycott of UCLA, and the university president has called for them to leave.”
UCLA, the campus’s third-largest, has a diverse student body of about 11,000, according to the university.
UCLA President Michael D. Young said in a statement that the “white supremacist ideology and racism of this group of people cannot be allowed to remain in our community.”
UCLA is located in the Los Angeles area, which is home to a large Jewish community.
In 2016, a white supremacist who killed five people at a Jewish community center in Kansas City, Missouri, was arrested and charged with hate crimes.
He has pleaded not guilty to the murder charges.
The UCLA protest was not the first time a UCLA student group had protested a specific event at the school.
Earlier this month, students at the University of California, Berkeley, blocked a campus police vehicle in the name of “free speech,” according to a local ABC affiliate.
