Duke students to protest fraternity’s ‘racist rager’
By Dylan Stableford

Students at Duke University are planning a rally Wednesday to protest a themed fraternity party that some are calling a "racist rager."

Photos from the party—held by Kappa Sigma on Friday—posted to Facebook showed students in traditional Asian attire. An email invite included stereotypical misspellings ("Herro," "Chank You") and an image from the film "Team America: World Police."'

... As Gawker pointed out, Duke students are certainly not the first to hold a themed party that's been deemed racist. Last year, a Penn State sorority held a Mexican-themed party, where "all the members decided to wear ponchos, sombreros and mustaches, and two women held signs, one of which read 'Will Mow Lawn for Weed + Beer' and the other 'I Don't Cut Grass, I Smoke It.'"

The sorority, Chi Omega, later apologized "for portraying inappropriate and untrue stereotypes."

1. Like I said; no one seems to ever learn...

Some Greeks on some campus are ALWAYS pulling this shit, which is why we see a variation of this story every semester

2. Happens over and over and over and over and over again with some fraternities.

They make the entire campus look bad. For what it's worth, this particular instance is probably driven by envy and jealousy. I would guess that the Asian and Asian-American students at Duke routinely kick the asses of the Kappa Sig brothers in the classroom. If you can't compete academically, use your spoiled rich kid fraternity to make a lame joke.

3. Kick! Unless the university sanctions the fraternity and students involved,

this bigoted sh!t will continue.
