In yet more news of greek life/sororities/fraternities, UCLA is now under fire for a frat party hosted by Sigma Phi Epsilon that had a theme of Kanye West/Kardashians "western" (literally what) "which reportedly included some partygoers wearing blackface.The party ... took place on Tuesday night, with attendees dressed in baggy clothes or like the Kardashians​ to fit the theme. Once photos from the party hit social media, students began to voice their displeasure and expressed concerns that the actions were racist and demeaning of the black culture."

"According to the LA Times, student Kelsee Thomas confronted members of the fraternity during the party, and while one member of the fraternity apologized, he also laughed at her when she asked him to write a letter to the black student union. Thomas later posted about the incident on Facebook, and said that they're hiding racism and ignorance behind frat and sorority themes."

UCLA is now "investigating" the claims, whilst the frat promises to investigate and punish accordingly.

Jerry Kang, who is vice chancellor of the UCLA's office of equity, diversity and inclusion had this to say about the subject after UCLA students gathered at the chancellor's office to protest and demand action be taken.

"It’s one thing to suggest you are actually focusing on one celebrity who is African American, it’s another thing to take it as a license to perform every attribute, every stereotype, every grotesque minstrelsy that you see,” he said.

There were multiple reports of blackface, some of the soririty girls wearing "soot and gold" on their faces, fake butts, chains and braids as part of the general theme of the "party".

are you ready for the stereotypically racist halloween, ONTD?
