Pro Ecclesia, Pro Mundus
Narrow-minded and ignorant is never funny. And it is embarrassing it happens in a place of higher learning from which I hold a degree.
People in this country seem to look for reasons to be offended. It's really pretty sad and discouraging.
It was a joke, no different from when Chris Rock or Eddie Murphy make fun of, well, just about everybody. It's not meant to be offensive, it's meant to be funny.
Let's stop looking for reasons to take offense.
Art (eg South Park, Chris Rock, etc) can be a social critique or parody. A sorority party cannot.
When you make the decision to put stupid things out in a public forum, you deserve the ridicule and the consequences from it.
These weren't pictures they took to put in a scrapbook or hang in a apartment. These were put online. When you offend people within that online forum, you have to deal with it.
The fact that no one mentioned to them it was a bad idea shows that they need to learn a lesson.
Got it...south park...art
Sorority party...serious business
Come on guys. This is ridiculous.
Regardless of whether funny or not, regardless of intent, it showed poor judgment. We may live in a wussified society, but one must adapt to be successful. When I was at Baylor, we got in trouble circa 1979 for hosting a "Cowboys and Iranians" party (middle of Iranian Hostage Crisis). It seemed like a good idea at the time, but the school was not amused. Fortunately we got off with a reprimand and a promise not to do it again.
When people with all the advantages in the world make fun of people who have very few advantages and do so precisely because those people do not have advantages, well that's not funny, that's mean. And racist. That doesn't make it national news, but as said above, putting the pictures online puts the situation into the public forum. It's not a crime to be ignorant and mean, but you are definitely open to criticism for it.
