SAN DIEGO (KGTV)- A rally over racial friction on the San Diego State University campus was held Thursday afternoon.

Over 100 students, staff and faculty gathered to call on SDSU administration after recent incidents against the Black Resource Center.

One student who spoke at the rally describes the vandalism that was discovered Sunday. “Both the television and the computer desktop slammed down and ruined," the student said.

The student said she was frustrated that this is the third incident within several months. "The individuals who incited this violence were not able to be recognized, can anyone tell me why? We don't have cameras."

A few hours after the rally crews were at the Black Resource Center installing multiple security cameras on the outside of the building.

Recently elected student body president, Christian Onwuka, spoke at the rally. "We’re not asking for a lot were asking for what we deserve," Onwuka said.

"Support us love us care for us," Onwuka continued, calling on the SDSU administration.

“Black and brown students need access to more culturally competent counselors, who are also specialized on connecting with diverse experiences in the black and brown community" Onwuka added.
