Was wondering if you could help get the word out about this.
This past weekend, on February 1, a fraternity at Duke University (my alma mater) called Kappa Sigma held an Asian-themed party called Asia Prime. The original invite (screen-capped above) includes the phrases ”Herro Nice Duke Peopre" and "Chank You.” Pictures from the event itself are also above. (More information here; student protest page here.)
Even more frustrating, fraternities at Duke has a history of hosting these sorts of offensive, insulting, marginalizing, dehumanizing themed parties, and a history of offering lame non-apologies for doing so.
Is this shit unbelievable, or is it unbelievable?
To all the privileged assholes I went to school with who told me that racism, sexism, homophobia, etc. were no longer a problem, especially on our college campus: What the hell were you talking about? Are you seeing this? Did we even go to the same school?
Here’s to hoping something will change here and on other college campuses too. In the meantime, please spread the word!
