"I though it was innocent fun because a lot of people in the fraternity said they were personally Mexican and didn't find it offensive, " said Sarah Alerasol a UT student.
"There is an issue of under representation of people of color, " said senior Amalia Hernandez.
All bleach balloon cases are under investigation.

As part of the Walk to West Campus: Standing in Solidarity Against Racism & Hate ****MEET @ MLK Statue at 5:30pm****, I saw a young white man sitting at Cain and Abel's, flicking us off as we walked by.

some facebook post from KVUE page:
- Tracy Cockrell JASON, Steve is exactly correct in what he is saying. My daughter is a student living in West Campus and I heard the exact same things Steve stated for a few months now. Very strange the media is just now reporting on this (close to election time) and skewed at that.

- Steven Akin OK KVUE, I just watched your news cast...It was sooo obvious that goup are liars. I quote from your witness on your News cast: "The balloons hit us, well almost hit us". The balloons hit 3 of us on our heads, well almost hit us......Thanks for reporting as it's transparent who the REAL RACISTS are on our campus! GO ROMNEY!
