Exuberance Turns into another Hate Party

By Malena Amusa Feb 19, 2007

Right after reports of students throwing black-face parties in dis-honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday, news came out that some at a Silicon Valley university hosted a "South of the Border" romp where "students showed up dressed as Hispanic janitors, gardeners, gangbangers and pregnant teens." Despite rebuke from the university’s president Paul Locatelli, not much has been done. I say, let’s just go with it. Give all these nice young leaders a vacation to our very real, militarized border. Make them cross. Then let’s heap insults on them and their kids while the huge majority of their new "frat" works at a poverty wage. Also, can we threaten at every moment to take away their second-class citizenship?
