In 2011, there was a huge uproar in the California University after a Fraternity and a Sorority from UCSD (University of California at San Deigo) threw a party that they called a “Compton Cookout.”
Well at Penn State of all places with all the issues that university already has, their newest black eye is much like the “Compton Cookout”, at racist themed party just they used Mexicans instead of blacks.
History repeats itself sadly, as these sorority girls from Penn State pose as Mexicans with sombreros, ponchos, fake mustaches, finger mustaches and cardboard signs proclaiming “Will Mow Lawn For Weed + Beer” and “I Don’t Cut Grass I Smoke It.” Yup, that’s the kind of thing that these girls think are acceptable.
Vice President of the Mexican American Student Association, Cesar Sanchez Lopez, had this to say:
“The Mexican American Student Association is disappointed in the attire chosen by this sorority. It in no way represents our culture. Not only have they chosen to stereotype our culture with serapes and sombreros, but the insinuation about drug usage makes this image more offensive. Our country is plagued by a drug war that has led to the death of an estimated 50,000 people, which is nothing to be joked about.”
It’s rumored that the Director of Greek Life Dr. Roy Baker, Director of the Paul Robeson Cultural Center, Carlos Wiley and the leadership of the sorority have met and that suspension is rumored but yet to be confirmed.
