Sorority’s racist party photo stirs outcry on the Web (Jeez Louise Racist barf alert!)
Yahoo News ^ | 12/05/12 | Claudine Zap

Posted on 12/06/2012 7:11:37 AM PST by AngelesCrestHighway

A Penn State sorority has become the focus of an investigation after a racist Mexican-themed party picture was posted to the Web, according to the independent Penn State blog, Onward State. The picture, said to be taken around Halloween, shows the women dressed in sombreros and mustaches. Some of the women held signs that read "Will mow lawn for weed + beer" and "I don't cut grass I smoke it." The photo was posted on Tumblr and Facebook, where Onward State was able to identify the women tagged in the photo as members of the Chi Omega sorority on campus. Jessica Riccardi, the president of the Nu Gamma chapter of Chi Omega, confirmed to the student publication the Daily Collegian that the sorority is under investigation. Riccardi also issued an apology.

It’s only racist when white people do it. Case closed.

It’s not very realistic.

I don’t see even one backpack leaf blower in the crowd.

Ha haaaaa!!!

Who knew Ubama voters had a sense of humor.

Well, to be fair, the stats suggest 75% of these Sandra Fluke wannabes voted for Ubama.

After all, that’s the true test of an illegal.

Many minority folks want so much to be white, that they consider any other depiction as racist.

Seems to me, anyway.

Hold on a minute:

I count at least four, possibly seven or eight Asians in that photo.

It’s not even racist for crying out loud.

Considering the number of big mustaches, those ladies with the nose brushes could be confused as Greeks and not Mexicans. Wait they are all Greeks, but dressing as Mexicans...too confusing. More coffee (from Juan Valdez of course)

I am not white, more of a pinkish, olive. Now my sister-in-law, she is nearly transparent. Without her clothes on I am told she is just a couple of blue dots and a brown dot.

the sorority is under investigation

For the possibility of illegal drugs at the party, or for being politically incorrect?

I'm guessing the latter.

That is correct. According to Dems, single white women, presumably most of these yoots, voted for Obama because of vaginas and uteruses brought to the forefront of American political discourse in the summer of 2012. Therefore, one can surmise that Obama voters are “racist.” Except the Asian babe to the left. :-)

For purposes of crime stats, they are “white”,
but for purposes of affirmative action, they are not.

I don’t see how this party will hurt anybody’s life. Will any Mexican be killed, harassed, turned down for a job, or any other bad thing because a bunch of young girls dressed up as Mexicans for a party? Hey, if a bunch of Mexicans want to dress up as whites, have at it! Dress up as surfer dudes, rednecks, any other white stereotype. People have no sense of humor anymore.

You make a good point. All the other sororities should also be investigated for their own insensitivity; dressing up like stereotypical white girls, who have often been the butt of many off-color jokes.

To be perfectly correct using Spanish the "Aye" should have an upside-down exclamation point in front of the "A" of "Aye". Just so that you know. With the "Num Lock" on, the upside-down exclamation point is achieved by holding down the "Alt" key and pressing 173 on the "Num" keypad.

Also, "Carumba" = "Caramba"
