The Dartmouth College chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) harshly criticized a “Bloods and Crips” themed-party, despite apologies from the sorority and fraternity that hosted the event earlier this summer.
A fraternity and sorority at Dartmouth College have come under fire for hosting a Bloods-Crips themed party.
The strongly worded letter, penned by the NAACP chapter on campus, and signed by the Afro-American Society and the Dartmouth Chapter of the and Women of Color Collective, accuses the mostly white students of hosting a “racist” event thinly veiled by the South Los Angeles gangland theme.
“Our peers mingled for hours while dressed as bloods or Crips while using racialized language,” accused the letter, circulated on campus. “It then turned into a ‘ghetto party’ with racialized language, speech and dress. Over 200 individuals attended this racist and classist event.”
The letter went on to urge students to report the event to the Dartmouth administration “as a bias incident” using an included hyperlink.
