African-American student allegedly bullied and taunted by white roommates

According to the "San Jose Mercury News," a fourth student has been charged with harassing and bullying his black roommate.

The allegations include putting a bike lock around his neck, taunting him with racial slurs like 3/5ths- a reference to slavery in American history, and decorating their suite with a Confederate flag and Nazi symbols.

Dan Simon spoke exclusively with one of the victim's friends and he is Outfront.
