WESTMINSTER, Md. (WJZ) — Controversy on campus. A fraternity and sorority at McDaniel College are under fire after allegations of ethnic stereotyping during a party.
It has generated heated debate both on and off campus and could result in anything from a warning for the fraternity and sorority involved to the loss of their charters.
A fraternity and sorority at McDaniel College are under investigation after holding a party in January with the theme “Country Music Television versus Black Entertainment Television.”
In a statement, a McDaniel vice president told WJZ: “McDaniel supports inclusiveness. Any event that promotes negatives stereotypes or disrespect of others is reprehensible.”
WJZ found the CMT/BET theme is a popular one, with various fraternities and sororities posting pictures on sites like Pinterest and Facebook.
I think I’ve officially run out of things to say for these stories. Tried being straight forward. Tried being sarcastic. Tried to warn everybody to stop making themes based on race because there’s a 100% chance it won’t turn out well for you. Nothing works. So I guess we’ll just let college kids be college kids and learn for themselves. I will say, out of all the different themes to get frats and sororities in trouble this is definitely the least clear-cut controversial right? I mean the best rapper of the past 15 years is white and the country song I heard on fucking repeat all last summer was by a black guy?
I mean all I know is that that would be my defense right there. Oh I’m racist for dressing like CMT? Wagon Wheel bro, you heard of it?
