When will shit like this stop?!
Two separate incidents at separate colleges, this time at Clemson University. Some kind of fraternity, Delta Iota Kappa (more like Dumbass Ignant Kids) threw this party as a Martin Luther King, Jr. day party/celebration. So when does dressing in blackface equate honoring a great man? Right, that’s exactly what I thought…it doesn’t!
There have been more parties like this being trickled throughout the media, so I guess maybe I shouldn’t be as shocked as I am. But I’m having a hard time getting past the statement that gets echoed each and everytime a party like this gets leaked or posted on Facebook, etc : “We really didn’t mean it to be offensive”. Riiiiiight, and your great great granddaddy didn’t see it as offensive either when he was buyin and selling negroes for sport. Riiiiight. Save that damn arguement for someone stupid enough to believe it.
I don’t know why the universities aren’t imposing harsher discipline on the people who participate in these parties. Seriously, how can I trust a University’s commitment to harmonious diversity and multiculturalism when they brush stuff like this under the rug. I dunno, maybe they thought that since they weren’t saying the N-word like Michael Richards, then no one would be mad. *Rolls Eyes*
