About 10 American Indian students wrote an official discrimination complaint about the Gamma Phi party late last week....
Okay. Am I to assume that these '10 American Indian students' wear 'traditional American Indian' clothing on campus everyday or do they wear 'white man' clothes?
I respectfully submit that if indeed they do not wear traditional American Indian clothing everyday they should be expelled.
Yup, unless Indians dress like Indians and stay out of Nordstroms - I AM OFFENDED! Insanity rules! s/
Who does wear traditional Indian clothing everyday? I certainly don't and I suspect none of those who filed complaints do either. Although, you have a point, this is just plain silly. If these students want to act like complete morons, then let them have at it.
This doesn't harm anyone other than those who were at the party. The photos will serve to remind them they were idiots in college. We all have those photos, regardless of race, creed or color. :) Although someone on the thread made a point that had the students been dressed in black-face there likely wouldn't even have been a discussion. Those kids would be in deep trouble and likely suspended.
College kids just like to wear clothing vastly different from their own when they get drunk and act like jerks. I suppose what I am saying is that I am not offended and that, stupidity, in and of itself, is not a crime nor reason for expulsion or any punishment.
College is for education and the 10 who complained, got an education on some drunken morons to avoid. Ours is not to cry and whine over little things like this, but to conduct our own lives with honor, dignity and integrity thus proving the mockers the idiots they aspire to be. :)
