Girl freaks out in library.
 
Apparently this has caused a buzz around the internet. Maybe because it has to do with an Asian person in a library and there was already that video a few months ago regarding UCLA. This is at Cal State Northridge.

As a black person myself, I'll just say this video isn't doing any favors for the black community. That's apparent in the comments on YouTube.

Its really a shame.

Can i have that 1:23 of my life back please? That was extremely disappointing. Seriously thought there was going to be a ***** fight there. :(

Jvig43 12-10-2011 02:03 PM

Yeah I have to say I was expecting more. It was funny but Idk if it's thread worthy.

vidae 12-10-2011 02:07 PM

I've never seen anyone freak out around finals. It makes no sense to get so worked up about people making noises in library. Also, I don't see how this is thread worthy.

At least once a year during/after semester finals we'd have at least one kid swan dive off of the tallest parking garage after they realized that they bombed a class.

They were typically chinese grad students. Very sad.

this is why we have noise-canceling headphones, earplugs, etc. I use earplugs all the time when my roommate decides to stay up untill 430 am listening to chipmunked music videos and creep on facebook. The wants of many override the wants of one, if she doesn't like the noise it's not her right to force someone to stop talking. I don't like having my sleep disturbed, but I realize that someone else has the same entitlement as I do, and politely asking is the only reasonable way to stop someone besides adjusting your situation to theirs.

The fact that the girl is asian is just sheer racism to poke fun at the stereotype of the asian community and their obsession to do well in school, but these black girls are not wrong in refusing to talk. Whether they were talking loudly or not we don't know, (common courtesy in a library is to be quiet), but to defend their right to talk when someone is being rude is acceptable imo.

In a ******* library, the Asian chick is most certainly in the right here.

StickSkills 12-10-2011 03:59 PM

Considering who it appears has the video camera, I'm guessing there is more to the story.

iowatreat54 12-10-2011 04:04 PM

Yea, the Asian chick probably could have just moved to a different part of the library and definitely didn't need to act like that, but chances are the people with the camera were probably being loud and/or rude. Definitely more to this than the video leads on.

Oh, and that wasn't freaking out.

I mean, she was on the other side of the library. Might have only been that area for study. Besides, why should she move when they're the ones being loud and obviously not doing anything productive in the library?

They had a camera, they were obviously being loud to begin with, then were trying to egg her on. I've seen that happen so many times. There's no defense for the camera-holders. They were being disruptive on purpose.

Oh absolutely. I was just saying she would have been better off just moving than acting like that, even though she really shouldn't have to move. Chances are she walked over to try and calmly ask/tell them to be quiet, and they acted like assholes. It's pretty obvious when the video starts off in the middle of her walking back to her seat.

I would say there's a 90% chance the camera holders were being obnoxious assholes, and the Asian chick just had no patience for it.

Bosanac01 12-10-2011 05:05 PM

I also say this is not good for the black community. I've seen cases like this in real life where they would get in a group together and feel they have a right to be loud and disrespectful to everyone around them. Different groups of people just act different, there is nothing you can do about it.

At the end of the day, that asian girl will probably study and do really well and get a nice job down the road, while the people with the camera won't do **** with their life.

Lame and underwhelming. I saw this on yahoo's front page the other day and I dont get what's so funny about it.

Why do people freak out so badly at finals.

Because one test can be the difference between passing and failing as well as determining if you get an A, B, or C in the course. I have a class where there is only a midterm and final. So if you didn't do too well on the midterm, you are counting on the final, and it's 50% of your grade.

Rabscuttle 12-10-2011 05:41 PM

They must have confused the library with the movie theatre.

Here's freaking out in a library done right:

Just for reference, I was down one floor studying for my final. (this was a while ago though)

Another video that I just saw:

I wish I had classes like that. :-(

Damn well I guess I would freak out if something like that happened at my school. Really glad it doesn't tho.
