Several fraternities at the University Of Texas
are being accused of hosting parties where attendee’s wore racially offensive
The parties were hosted by Phi Gamma Delta and
Kappa Alpha’s President, Tim Weaver, said that
the party’s theme was meant to pay homage to "pop culture icons" and
Several pictures were submitted to the university’s
newspaper by students. One showed a white man with black paint on his face and
body, an afro wig on and a chain and lock around his neck.
Another man wore a T-Shirt with a large watermelon
on it, while another wore a shirt commemorating a Juneteenth event.
Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration of
the ending of slavery, which ironically originated in Texas.
