Sombrero-Clad Penn State Sorority Girls Busted for Racist Party
The costumes at Chi Omega Nu’s Halloween bash were already questionable, but signs the students are holding in a leaked pic (below)—”Will Mow Lawn for Weed + Beer” and “I Don’t Cut Grass, I Smoke It”—are making a chapter suspension look likely. [Gawker]
PSU’s Onward State has tracked the social media afterparty, including tweets and Facebook tagging, and has comments from the sorority and other campus groups.
In light of the insensitivity displayed against Latin culture, Vice President of the Mexican American Student Association, Cesar Sanchez Lopez, had the following statement.
“The Mexican American Student Association is disappointed in the attire chosen by this sorority. It in no way represents our culture. Not only have they chosen to stereotype our culture with serapes and sombreros, but the insinuation about drug usage makes this image more offensive.” [Onward State]
