Here’s the thing about all these news stories about Greek organizations throwing racially insensitive parties: it’s getting mind-numbingly tedious to write about.

At first, these incidents were admittedly funny to report. Not because of the offensive party themes–I want to make that clear. Rather, what made me personally laugh about these stories was the audacity of the partygoers to be stupid enough to not only throw these themed events (let alone in 2014) but to be dumb enough to throw photographic evidence up on social media.

After you see 50 or so of these stories, however, coming across yet another one of these pieces just sucks the energy right out of you. I’m starting to feel like a chapter advisor, you guys. I’ve skipped feeling any emotion over the latest incident, and have gone straight to feeling exhausted. Feel me? I’m in complete “What is it this time?” mode.

Considering how all of these pieces are exactly the same, I decided to do all the other writers a favor and streamline this whole process for your convenience. To save time and effort for the next person, I’ve created a generic fill-in-the-blank form to fill out whenever one of you, yet again, fails to learn your lesson. You’re welcome.

___
The Greek organizations Phi Delta Theta and Phi Sigma Sigma at McDaniel College / University (PICK ONE) are in trouble for a racially insensitive open party / mixer (PICK ONE).

The theme of the party was CMT versus BET. The women in attendance wore plaid shirts and cowboy boots, while the men in attendance wore gold chains and baggy pants.

The administration has come out and said that this party was (insert disgusted adjective) reprehensible.

Stop acting like racist idiots, and for the love of God, please resist the urge to put that employment-killing selfie on Facebook.

___
Hope this form helps, idiots. I’m sure you’ll need it next week.

      When you say this do you put all black people into one category? Its pretty different types of people regardless what color they are. I am black and personally, I didn’t believe the party to be offensive. I attend McDaniel and we have no real racial issues that are out in the open.

      Eminem? Macklemore, Mac Miller, Riff Raff pretty much all white rappers… People I personally hate honestly and should’ve stuck to Country Music; MERICA!

      I didn’t find the party theme racist. I also don’t think it’s one sided either, do you not remember tropic thunder with Robert Downey jr? That shit was hilarious.

        I agree with you this was probably a harmless party that caused a shortage of Preparation-H at a Whole Foods for the media,but people can’t seem to see my overt satire. that includes the contradictory stances people take like my other reply. Phrasing ‘blacks’ like a lesser people when some of their idols or favorite artists copied or embraced black culture, but they did it so its cool, cause they’re white. But that is our culture nowadays, now I will attempt to knock back half of this thirty rack…

      I hope you realize Chappelle’s white face was a parody of black facing, something that has a real, offensive history in this country. Its not a double standard, its satire. Lap me for knowing cultural history.

    If for some reason the theme of a party calls for dressing as a musician are black rappers off limits because that would be racist and promoting stereotypes? I assume a Mexican musician would also be off limits. Elton John would be off limits too I guess since he’s gay. Does everybody need to go as Billy Joel? Should we have Billy Joel themed parties?

    The only thing racist about this party theme is the administration. Would they have an issue of CBS vs. NBC where people dressed up like the casts from shows on each (NO)? BET is not a “black” thing and CMT is not a “white” thing… however, you will not see many cowboy themed programs on BET nor will you see “urban” themed things on CMT. Having a theme party where the different genders dress as typical characters from the networks’ respective shows has nothing to do with race and I would argue is not demeaning or socially irresponsible. Now, if you’re a racist and somehow thing that BET is only for black people of CMT is only for white people then stop being racist… then you won’t have a problem with it.

      BET stands for Black Entertainment Television (which is racist in and of itself) so it is a “black thing.” That doesn’t mean having a BET party is racist though. Next thing we know GDIs will be claiming that our America party is offensive to Americans.

    I’m an Irish-American. Everyone is allowed to dress like leprechauns all they want but if I want to throw on a quick black face I get in trouble?
