LOS ANGELES » Campus police are investigating fliers with profane, racist and sexist language that have been distributed at the University of Southern California and the University of California, Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles Times reports Tuesday that the leaflets were mailed anonymously to both schools and contain language about Asian women dating white men.

UCLA Chancellor Gene Block asked campus police to investigate Monday after a flier was received at the Asian American Studies Center on the Westwood campus.

One was also sent to Asian Pacific American Student Services at USC.

The director of UCLA's Asian Pacific Coalition says a sign with similar language was posted in 2012 outside the Vietnamese Student Union office.

The Times says about 50 students participated in a protest rally at UCLA on Monday that was triggered by the flier.

KTLA 5 is making money off this "trash". They make it look so awful, but show it up close to bring up viewership. Now the Advertiser is doing the same thing. Shame. Jerry Springer Nation.
