Duke University fraternity
under fire for
Asian themed party

News and Obsever [Raleigh,NC], by Kelly Poe

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 2/8/2013 6:37:49 AM

A Duke University fraternity has been suspended from its national affiliation after complaints about a themed party last week that featured Asian stereotypes. About 200 Duke students gathered Wednesday to protest the Kappa Sigma party, which was held Friday. The party originally was called “Asia Prime” in social media posts that featured references to drinking sake and an exaggerated, stereotypical language, such as saying “Herro” instead of “Hello.”(snip)Still, photos from the party showed mostly white students wearing sumo wrestler costumes and chopsticks in their hair.

Next time they should dress up as Vikings. Scandinavians love a good party, and we won´t complain if anyone shows up wearing horns. Skol!

Next time they should consider a toga party. Wait, that will upset the Italians. Well, how about a Medieval party. Whoops that will upset all of Europe. How about a Mad Men party. Enter the offended feminist. Antebellum party? Civil War party? You got it, here comes the offended minorities. Don´t even think about a Cowboys and Indian party. Looks like all that is left is a Gay Pride Parade party. And that my friends is how we channel young men into Alan Alda wussy types.

It might add a new slant to college parties.
Any offensive behavior was purely occidental.

They know the condemnation is coming from left wing thought police, and the students will end up despising the left for it.

Well, thank goodness none of our leaders came from THAT university. A lot of them come from a university that has a S & M sex society/club....harvard. So much better than a foolish but essentially harmless fraternity hosting an asian themed party.

Let’s say that a Asian college and one of its fraternity´s held a similar themed party, but instead it was an "American" theme event, you know with stereo type cowboys, Indians, mobsters, hillbillies, Hip-hop stars, football players, baseball players and etc., would we be upset?......NO

Why do we care so much that these kids want to act and behave like idiots...I really don´t care. When they return to real life in public, and continue this unacceptable rude behavior then raise some flags, but what a bunch a stupid college kids do behind closed doors is their business.

Oh, for god´s sake, I´m so tired of all the PC crap. Ms. Zhou said: " It trivializes me! It makes me feel like less than a human being.”

My feeling is that Ms. Zhou has a serious problem if a frat party can make her feel "less than human". My only concern about a fraternity or sorority party would be the the possible consumption of alcohol, drugs, and sex.

As a "Greek" alumnus, to my knowledge Asians are not prevented from "rushing" and can join any national Greek fraternity/sorority on any campus. My guess is there are probably Asian students on Duke´s campus who are in the Greek system. Maybe they even have their own Asian fraternity or sorority.

Where I went to school in the 60´s we had both a national "black", Greek fraternity and a national "black" Greek sorority. My bet is that neither of them seek out white or Asian members even now in our PC culture. However, the so-called "white" Greeks on my campus opened their arms to both, because their national organizations said they should.

While I agree that race discrimination is bad for many reasons and actually short-changes society when it occurs, the idea that we can´t discriminate is hypocritical. We discriminate all the time - such as choosing brown shoes over black or navy blue shoes. I discriminate when I go to the grocery store - do I buy Folger´s coffee, or do I buy Hill´s Brothers or Maxwell House? Do I buy Coke or do I buy Pepsi or 7Up?

Whatever happened to just having fun?

But a black fraternity can have a whitey party and go in whiteface, and that´s OK.

One of the amusing things about the Seinfeld TV show was that they made fun of everyone! Homosexuals, lesbians, native americans, Asians,blacks, physically handicapped, mentally challenged, mentally disturbed, affirmative action, and on and on.
One of the best ways to get over a bias is to address it directly. Seinfeld allowed us to have guilty pleasure watching the show.

They do say herro. They do get their L´s and R´s mixed up. And the funny thing is they get L´s and R´s mixed up even in their e-mails and documents. And ten years ago before I started working here I thought it was just in their speech. And they take no offense when I correct them and they in turn teach me some Japanese.

And just like in the old B&W movies of the 50´s they say Ah-So a lot. And many of them grin a lot and have big front teeth just like in those old movies. And they are great to work with and immensely fun at lunch and love American food.

They also say Hi(hai) over and over when on the phone talking back home to the corporate office. I finally asked my cubicle neighbor what Hi meant after hearing him say nothing but Hi on the phone for over an hour. He said it was Yes. I asked what was the word for No. He said they never say No. They just say That will be very difficult. And that seems to be true across all the Asian culture.

Teacher resignations up

More than 600 teachers have walked out of Wake County Schools since the start of the school year. The school district says people are leaving for many reasons. Some for jobs in other states. Others are getting out of the profession entirely. However, many have a common reason -- not enough pay.Thursday´s announcement came as the debate over teacher pay escalates. North Carolina teachers haven´t had a pay increase in five years. They currently rank among the lowest paid in the country. School leaders say they´re seeing a 41 increase in teacher resignations over the same period last year, and teachers

A new lawsuit alleges that “X-Men” director Bryan Singer sexually abused an underage boy at a lurid California sex party. The bombshell suit claims the director of blockbuster hits like “Superman Returns” used his position in Hollywood to exploit young men by taking part in a sex ring. The lawsuit, filed by attorney Jeff Herman, charges that Singer attended parties at a mansion in Encino, California where adult males did drugs and had sex with teenage boys.The teen mentioned in the suit never consented to sexual relations with Singer and often persisted, it states, according to a press release from Herman’s

An 89-year-old Navajo woman wants the land she´s lived on all her life to be left to her family once she dies. But here´s the catch; she lives inside a national park, and age-old conflicts between the family and the National Parks Service may prevent that from happening. Stella Peshlakai Smith, who barely speaks any English, was born in what is now the Wupatki National Monument north of Flagstaff in 1924, a month before the land became part of a national park. Her daughter, Helen Peshlakai Davis, says it´s home to her. "There´s no other place that I want to call

The TCM (Turner Classic Movies) cable channel celebrated its twentieth anniversary yesterday. It did so in grand style, rebroadcasting movies from its first day on the air (Gone With the Wind and It Happened One Night). After GWTW, TCM broadcast an interesting interview with host-for-life Robert Osborne conducted by Alec Baldwin. I have been a high volume consumer of TCF roughly since day one. I am a little vague on Ted Turner’s acquisition of the rights to just about every worthwhile movie ever made, but with TCM, he is putting them to good — even ingenious — use. The films

Authorities said Monday that a pair of sex offenders suspected of raping and murdering at least four women probably wore their court-ordered GPS devices during the crimes. Franc Cano, 27, and Steven Dean Gordon, 45, had been required to wear the devices after serving time in prison for sexually assaulting a child under the age of 14. Police on Monday also said that they are now “confident” that there is a fifth victim -- and perhaps more -- in a string of slayings that has been tied to a pair of registered sex offenders. The men were formally Monday charged

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.

The most decadent Beltway publication yet conceived, Washingtonian, has outdone itself with its latest celebration of what life is like inside the city fueled by your forcibly confiscated money. The publication recently ran with a profile of White House Press Sec. Jay Carney‘s wife, ABC News personality and working mom Claire Shipman. Carney’s two beautiful children are also profiled in the piece, but the profile itself is largely irrelevant. What is worthy of dissection are the three featured images that add value to the profile. And by “value,” we mean guffaws galore.

Deaths at Phoenix VA hospital

The chairman of the House Committee on Veterans ­Affairs said Wednesday that dozens of VA hospital patients in Phoenix may have died while awaiting medical care. Rep.

"It appears as though there could be as many as 40 veterans whose deaths could be ­related to delays in care," ­Miller announced to a stunned audience during a committee hearing Wednesday.

A once-prominent socialite was found guilty Tuesday in the 1996 Tucson car bomb killing of her ex-husband after spending years abroad living a lavish lifestyle across Europe. Pamela Phillips, 56, had pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder. During the trial that began in February, Phillips´ lawyers told jurors their client had nothing to gain from the death of businessman Gary Triano and that she was the victim of overzealous authorities who failed to follow other leads. They said Phillips was already a successful real estate broker with her own money, and suggested that Triano had

Still, they argue that jobs and the economy will be the central battleground in November. “That’s the debate that the election will be about, jobs and the budget,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said last week.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.
