Fraternity Mocks Black History Month With "Compton Cookout"

Fraternity Mocks Black History Month With "Compton Cookout"

SAN DIEGO -- Officials at UC San Diego are condemning a ghetto-themed party organized by fraternity students to mock Black History Month.

A Facebook posting advertising Monday's 'Compton Cookout' invited people to a condominium complex off-campus.

The invitation urged all participants to wear chains, rapper-style urban clothing by makers such as FUBU and speak very loudly.

Female participants were encouraged to be "ghetto chicks" with gold teeth, cheap clothes and "short, nappy hair."

The invitation said the party would serve watermelon, chicken, malt liquor, cheap beer and a purple sugar-water concoction called "dat Purple Drank."

The party was organized by members of several UCSD fraternities, according to an e-mail from Gary Ratcliff, assistant vice chancellor for student life.

UCSD Chancellor Marye Anne Fox called the party, "offensive" and a "blatant disregard of our campus values."

"We reject acts of discrimination ... and we will confront and appropriately respond to such acts," Fox said.

---------------------------------

Read The Invitation To The "Compton Cook Out," As Posted On Facebook:

"February marks a very important month in American society. No, i'm not referring to Valentines day or Presidents day. I'm talking about Black History month. As a time to celebrate and in hopes of showing respect, the Regents community cordially invites you to its very first Compton Cookout.

For guys: I expect all males to be rockin Jersey's, stuntin' up in ya White T (XXXL smallest size acceptable), anything FUBU, Ecko, Rockawear, High/low top Jordans or Dunks, Chains, Jorts, stunner shades, 59 50 hats, Tats, etc.

For girls: For those of you who are unfamiliar with ghetto chicks-Ghetto chicks usually have gold teeth, start fights and drama, and wear cheap clothes - they consider Baby Phat to be high class and expensive couture. They also have short, nappy hair, and usually wear cheap weave, usually in bad colors, such as purple or bright red. They look and act similar to Shenaynay, and speak very loudly, while rolling their neck, and waving their finger in your face. Ghetto chicks have a very limited vocabulary, and attempt to make up for it, by forming new words, such as "constipulated", or simply cursing persistently, or using other types of vulgarities, and making noises, such as "hmmg!", or smacking their lips, and making other angry noises,grunts, and faces. The objective is for all you lovely ladies to look, act, and essentially take on these "respectable" qualities throughout the day.

Several of the regents condos will be teaming up to house this monstrosity, so travel house to house and experience the various elements of life in the ghetto.

We will be serving 40's, Kegs of Natty, dat Purple Drank- which consists of sugar, water, and the color purple , chicken, coolade, and of course Watermelon. So come one and come all, make ya self before we break ya self, keep strapped, get yo shine on, and join us for a day party to be remembered- or not. "

Re: Fraternity Mocks Black History Month With "Compton Cookout"

again?

not shocked.

that which is restricted/taboo will attract the most attention.

some experts (sociologist/historians) say that white people (especially white people of means) tend to project "true freedom" upon the down and out black people of the ghetto and seek to imitate them because only through imitation they can feel free to do what they really want to do (sing, dance, talk to white females, etc...) and be who they really want to be...this behavior dates back to the dance sensation "the Cakewalk" back in slavery days.

I'll save my outrage for people who deserve a bullet in the head instead of merely a slap to the face.

Re: Fraternity Mocks Black History Month With "Compton Cookout"

I'm hoping my fraternity isn't part of this. Thats really offensive. Don't they have to go through their Greek staff advisor and get approval for stuff like this? I don't know how this could have slipped by.

Re: Fraternity Mocks Black History Month With "Compton Cookout"

I have always wondered what the obsession is with white fraternities to run around in black face, indulge in negative black stereotypes and practice exclusion.

Black people are not fascinated with white folks in this manner.

Re: Fraternity Mocks Black History Month With "Compton Cookout"

Well, you know many universities are having to practice "grade norming" (i.e. affirmative action) to find enough white males to keep their campuses diverse.

Clearly, these young men were only allowed to enroll because they received preferred treatment, as they are obviously not intelligent enough to have been accepted at an institution of higher learning on their own merits.

Another case of political correctness and preferential treatment running amok if you ask me.

As wrong as they were they still refused to identify any of the fraternities that these people are involved in or the race of the students who decided to throw this party.

Since it's UCSD I assume either white or Asian.

I wouldn't expect this at UCSD of all campuses though. Shame on them.

some colleges dont allow fraternities at all, the one near my college did not, and its because of stupid shit like this.

Re: Fraternity Mocks Black History Month With "Compton Cookout"

I didnt realise fraternities and sororities really existed. I thought they were made up creations like leprachauns and cheerleaders.

why so bitter?
