Oh look! Penn State gets more bad publicity.

Sororowhores of Chi Omega Nu pose as Mexicans.

[quote]The photo shows the girls of Chi Omega Nu dressed in ponchos and sombreros for what they called a “Mexican fiesta” themed party around Halloween, complete with mustaches and hand-lettered signs which read, “Will mow lawn for weed and beer” and “I don’t cut grass, I smoke it”.

Very offensive to me. I hope Penn State suspends this sorority. The requisite apology after doing things like this are also offense as you know they are not sincere.

That photo would even make a KKK member cringe.

The only problem is with the signs. Those are offensive.

But costumes? Didn't you guys ever do a "theme" party?

The only people I have known from Penn State are fundie types. Which, ironically is anything but Penn State. Hypocritical assholes.

Yet somehow the entire sorority ended up in it.

R4, there's a difference between throwing a "theme party" and throwing an event specifically designed to denigrate a large group of minorities. This party was nearly as bad as them hosting one in blackface.

Their sorority girls for god's sake, in US America. They're just showing their concern for the Mexico and South Africa and such. They don't have maps. Their education as such is going to help the Iraq and the Asian countries.

Penn State is a Jesus University. Enough said.

Theology students have serious discussions about weather women can be Bishops and get Doctorates for this. How messed up is that?

Chi Omega Nu's were by far the most vapid sorority when I was in college, and that was a long time ago.

Queerty's story on this:

Did Penn State Kids Create “It Gets Better” Video To Deflect Racist Accusations?

Penn State got another black eye this week when an offensive photo of sorority girls dressed like stereotypical Mexicans surfaced on the Internet.

Smiling like they just got asked to homecoming, the girls of Chi Omega are seen wearing fake mustaches and serapes, and carrying signs with slogans like “I don’t cut grass, I smoke it.” Classy stuff, no?

The photo was taken during Halloween but went viral on Monday, when it was posted on the campus news site, Onward State. With the Sandusky trial still fresh on people’s minds, the last thing the school needed was another scandal.

Then suddenly, on Tuesday, an It Gets Better video from various members of Penn State’s Panhellenic community surfaced on YouTube. It was posted by openly gay Delta Lambda Phi member Nick Doyle, who is on PSU’s Greek council.

Doyle writers: This is the Penn State Greek Life It Gets Better video. I want this video to reach out to all struggling individuals and let them know that no matter what they are going through, that it gets better.

The It Gets Better project was started by Dan Savage in response to LGBTQ youth committing suicide. This video is geared towards LGBT and all individuals that are dealing with a difficult time, we as a community wanted to show that no matter who you are, we support you and that you have a wonderful life ahead of you… We as a community want to let all of you know, all of you that are struggling, all of you that need a friend, we are here for you. You are an amazing person and have a wonderful life ahead of you. Please always know that it gets better.

It’s a nice sentiment but the timing is suspicious: Could these kids have cobbled together an IGB video in less than a day, as a kind of PR fixit job for the embattled school and its Greek system? If it was, that’s pretty jaded shit for fresh-faced college kids. Maybe some of them are poli-sci majors.

It does seem like an intentional effort at whitewashing the Chi Omega incident: A piece in Onward State, which applauded the clip, states, “In the wake of scandal regarding one chapter, it’s appropriate to remember that one chapter’s actions do not dictate the entire Greek community.”

Is the reputation of the Greek community really what’s important here?

As the Queerty reader who sent us the homemade PSA—which he calls “possibly the most generically awkward ‘It Gets Better’ video ever”—points out, words like “gay,” lesbian,” “LGBT,” and “suicide” are never uttered. For all the smirks and rah-rah attitude, you’d think they were talking about the winter formal.

Our reader also claims the video description was altered after questions were raised about the clip. (We’ve attempted to get more information but the comment section has been disabled.)

We’re not going to nail Doyle or the other participants in the video to the cross: They’re just kids, and we’re sure some of them are gay or have gay people they love. (And Penn State did receive five out of five stars from Campus Pride.) But the point of an It Gets Better video is to help kids in need, not cover your ass or salvage your reputation.

I went to Penn State and it was most definitely NOT a fundie or Jesus school. Not in the least. There are over 40,000 students there each year (main campus) and of course there are all types but you can't categorize the whole school as racist, or fundie, or sympathizers.

by Anonymousreply 2612/06/2012

The costumes mostly make them look ignorant. They made the signs so everyone knows they enjoy making racist slurs.

More whiney victim class people, vomit. Anyone offended by this brings out the bully in me. It's a silly college party, first of all, and if the theme was France and they were all wearing barets with those mustaches, nobody would care. But, no, THOSE POOR HISPANICS, boo hoo, stop being mean... assholes.

It shouldn't even be news. Trust me, tons of Latino comics, writers, etc. are making these exact same jokes. Soooo over you PC cunts.

In my state, the mexicans/illegals are treated like royalty. And it does go to their head! Meanwhile, other citizens are suffering from lack of work opportunities.

by Anonymousreply 3912/06/2012

r39 where do you live? State of Delusion?

ask those companies that took jobs overseas, or ask those businesses that are only willing to pay as little as they can while looking the other way when it comes to hiring undocumented or 'guest workers'. ask all the union busting companies that pit workers against each other in order to keep them from organizing.

I'm employed in one of the mexican/illegal fields of work and sometimes it can be miserable, and other times maddening, like the old codger jogger who felt he had to share "you don't look like the typical worker."

by Anonymousreply 4012/06/2012

[R40]Not a state of delusion. Everybody who lives here knows mexicans are everywhere. I mean everywhere. And so many illegals. They are in the food industry; the landscaping industry; the construction industry; just about any work force. And do they ever discriminate against other minorities! Many a citizen would love to work for those so-called unwanted jobs illegals take. But when they do, they are discriminated against by the illegals. How do I know this? From personal and others' experience! So when I say they are treated like royalty, I mean every word!

I don't have a problem with the girls dressing up. I mean, none of these women are Prince Harry, after all.

But Penn State IS a racist environment, and they have a difficult time getting black students to go there.

Just goes to show you, racism is not limited to the South. But then, after the last election, you should already know that.
