A valid question, though I've always kind of gotten the impression that college campuses are kind of insulated in some ways from the larger world. It is possible that a drunken college student acting like a jerk in a college cafeteria (that is where this was, right? I've got no sound here) might be treated similarly whatever the race, whereas that same drunken fool might be treated very differently based on race down the road doing the same thing at, say, Applebee's. (Not that I'm saying Applebee's is somehow especially racist, just that outside the college environment race might be a bigger factor).
