UCSD Unhappy With 'Ghetto-Themed" Student Party
Channel 10 News ^ | February 17th, 2010 | 10News

Posted on 02/17/2010 1:58:18 PM PST by Third Person

SAN DIEGO -- UC San Diego administrators are condemning a weekend ghetto-themed party thrown off-campus by fraternity students to mock Black History Month, but they aren't likely to discipline anyone, it was reported Wednesday.

The so-called Compton Cookout event urged all participants to wear chains, don cheap clothes and speak very loudly, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported. Female participants were encouraged to be "ghetto chicks."

The invitation read, "For those of you who are unfamiliar with ghetto chicks -- Ghetto chicks usually have gold teeth, start fights and drama, and wear cheap clothes ...," the Union-Tribune reported. Click Here To Read The Full Invitation

Jeff Gattas, the UCSD executive director of communications and public affairs, told the Union-Tribune that because the event wasn't sanctioned by the university or run by a student organization, university officials don't have a reason to penalize party hosts.

Campus chancellor Marye Anne Fox learned about the party Tuesday and reacted by e-mailing a statement to the university's student body and staff, according to the newspaper, which reported less than 2 percent of UCSD's undergraduates are black.

And they do do that stuff.

Was it catered by the folks at NBC who provided the Fried Chicken and Grits in the commissary for BHM? The Lefties...what a bunch of asswholes...and the black vote is theirs 90%...who is dumber?

Sounds like the UCSD faculty/staff isn’t very tolerant of diversity in viewpoints.

Well, its not nice to make fun of those less fortunate than us. And to aim it squarely at Black History Month, seems mean spirited. But thats what you get with a bunch of 17-22 year old joiks.

Went to a Halloween party in Newport Beach once.
Two guys came dressed as pimps and their girlfriends came as Hookers. They had monopoly money waving it around. Pretty funny.

It was a off campus party thrown by some drunk frat guys. C'mon. Zero tolerance = zero intelligence.

A more thoughtful black community might wonder why this stereotype is out there? Here's a thought. A few years ago I got some older teenagers from the local hood down in my neighborhood trick and treating. Just in case I missed the costumes (which I didn't), he explained he was the "pimp" and she was the "ho." True story.

Maybe they meant the original ghetto people who were jewish and lived in Germany in the 1930’s.

Bullcrap...they don't want the liability of penalizing free speech or for infringing on civil rights...they are stuck in the middle, so they did what all University Leaders do when faced with a legal dilemma...punt.

If it genuinely IS a fraternity event, then it IS a student organization (sounds like the fraternity involved is in full damage-control mode too)...

“Ghetto Chicks???” Who uses that term?

The proper nomenclature in the patois of America’s inner-city underclass is “b*tches” and “ho’s”

Rapper 'Ludacris'

Lyrics to Ludacris' Obama rap song, "Obama Is Here":

"Hey... I'm back on it

like I just signed my record deal, yeah the best is here

The Bentley Coupe paint is drippin wet, it got sex appeal

Never shoulda hated, you never shoulda doubted him

With a slot in the President's iPod, Obama shouted him

Said I handled my biz and I'm one of his favorite rappers

Well give Luda a special pardon if I'm ever in the slammer

Better yet put me in office, make me a Vice President

Hillary hated on you so that bitch is irrelevant

Now Jesse talkin slick and apologizin for WHAT~?!

If you said it then you MEANT it how you want it, head or gut

And all you other politicians tryin to hate on my man

Watch us win majority vote in every STATE on my man

You cain't stop what's 'bout to happen, we 'bout to make history

The first black President it's destined and it's meant to be

The threats ain't fazin us, the nooses or the jokes

Get off your ass black people it's time to get out and vote

Paint the White House black and I'm sure that's got 'em terrified

McCain don't belong in ANY chair unless he's paralyzed

Yeah I said it cause Bush is mentally handicapped

Ball up all of his speeches and just throw 'em like candy wraps

Cause what you talkin I hear nothin even relevant

And you the worst of all 43 Presidents

Get out and vote, or the end'll be near

And the world is ready for change cause Obama is here

YEAHHH! Cause Obama is here

The world is ready for change cause Obama is here

Yeahhhh, cause Obama is here

Say world is ready for change cause Obama is here

Hey!

Other than the gold teeth, this could have just as easily been a “Jersey Shore” themed party.

From a website called, AltMuslim.com:
"...speaking of hypocrisy, and the southside of chicago- and barak obama- one time i went to the bud milliken parade ( a very big event- about 6 hours long) and at one point- michelle obama appeared waving on top of an escalade, she was wearing torn jeans, a drumpled semi dirty t-shirt half tucked in and out- and her hair was crazy undone- then she made a small speech- and actually referred to barak as her "baby daddy" (not baby's daddy even you'll notice)

some of the crowd bought it- but i thought it was really over the top in the way of pandering, as i knew she was going to a state dinner that evening and can only assume her demeanor and dress would morph accordingly."

From ABC News...
Marry Your Baby Daddy Day!
One Woman Wants to Bring Marriage Back to the Black Community

"This was not the historical norm. Most black kids were born to married parents until the time when President Johnson promised to end poverty. Perhaps because poor people were offered more government aid, moms had less need for a husband. Some mothers could lose a welfare check if their husband made money. People respond to such incentives, and the out-of-wedlock birthrate has continued to grow across the board, but especially among blacks.

'There is no stigma anymore in the black community about having a child out of wedlock,' said Reid, which led to the creation of Marry Your Baby Daddy Day. For those who don't know, Reid explains that 'a Baby Daddy is simply...an unmarried father. But they've become caricatures in the ghetto.'
