“How can minorities hope to feel respected in an institution of higher learning when things like this go unpunished?

Once again moochers working to shame the producers in to forfeiting their own rights. It is credit to the university administration that they took no action but the very idea that someone thinks they have the right to control another’s action is chilling. It’s hard to criticize the fraternity leadership for making the appropriate politically correct noises [……Campbell says “(his fraternity has) learned an important lesson about planning and conducting our social events and other activities ……] but it would be nice for an organization to just once get up and "stand by their actions" rather than looking down in shame...shuffling their feet and essentially say "Yes Massah!"

    Someone should call the WAAAAAmbulance and then deliver 9 truck loads of eggshells to spread around on the ground so they can all hold hands as they tip toe around everyone's feeewings and making sure they're not being offensive in any manner whatsoever.

    "A letter of concern written by Latino Community Affairs has over 400 signatures of support. The letter read, in part, that the university must “encourage these organizations to end the negative and hurtful portrayal of communities of color on (UT’s) campus.”

    I wonder if the letter was in english or spanish?

    Boo hoo. Not even offensive unless you are not yet potty trained. PC claptrap. checking... nope, it doesn't say anywhere in the constitution that you have a right not to be offended. Colleges... no longer places where adults learn to cope and excel in the world. Indoctrination day care centers...
    We have enough "youth." We need a fountain of "smart."

    I wish they explained why some found the event offensive. I wouldn't care if people who never set foot in WI had a cheesehead party with brandy, curd, cranberries, etc. I don't see why that's offensive.

      Well, the reason you don't understand is that you are part of the "opressor class" not only is is not possible for you to understand you cannot be discriminated against by a bonafide minority person. By the way a bonafide minority is pretty much every looter in the world.
