JHU FRAT'S RACIST HALLOWEEN
It's always nice when white, wealthy and otherwise entitled university students get together to mock the community that puts up with them. It's even more pleasant when they're racist fraternity members.
The Sigma Chi fraternity at Johns Hopkins University had a Halloween Party this weekend at their house over on 235 E. 33rd St.
The invitation, which described Baltimore as "the hiv pit" and encouraged attendees to wear "regional clothing from our locale" such as "bling bling ice ice, grills," and "hoochie hoops" went on to say (according to JHU's BSU):
"For the record, we would like to thank our founding fathers for incorporating the first amendment into the venerable Bill of Rights, and Johnnie L. Cochran for being a true homie and getting Orenthal Simpson, commonly known as OJ, acquitted.
"ps we STILL don' discriminate against hoodrats, skig skags, or scallywhops"
And a picture of Condoleezza Rice accompanied the posted invitation.
The party's atmosphere included a skeleton pirate dangling from a rope noose and sound effects of gunshots.
The invitation, students said, was indicative of the pervasive attitude of condescension to Baltimore residents and another example of the university's strained relationship with the surrounding community.
