Duke Chronicle – A Kappa Sigma theme party held Friday has drawn major backlash from the Asian community at the University. At 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday several students including seniors Ashley Tsai, Tong Xiang and Ting-Ting Zhou posted flyers across Duke’s campus protesting a Kappa Sigma party that took place Feb. 1. The flyers included emails sent out to party invitees as well as photographs of students at the party, which were taken from Facebook.
The party was originally called “Kappa Sigma Asia Prime” before a report was filed with the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, after which a second email was then sent to invitees. The message said Asia Prime was canceled and a new party “International Relations” would instead take place. The original email included misspellings to convey Asian-accented English and included a meme based on Kim Jung-il character in the film “Team America: World Police.” The flyers imposed text over the message calling the party a “racist rager” and speculated that Kappa Sigma may lose its charter, which it regained the past year, sarcastically writing “Nice one, Broseph Stalin!!!!! You won’t get unchartered for this!!! ;).”
You know what I like about this frat party controversy? It’s actually the Asians who are mad. It’s the Asians who are offended and being proactive and going against the Duke frat bros. Passing their Facebook pictures around and sending them hate mail and blowing their shit up all over the place. It’s not the administration. It’s not white people or random feminists just looking for something to complain about as some huge injustice. It’s the actual Asians doing their own dirty work and standing up for themselves. That makes it ok for me. Like the Duke frat bros had a somewhat racist Asian themed party. The Asians are pissed and fighting back. That’s how it should be. No outsiders looking for their latest cause to protest. Do I think maybe the Asians are being a little uptight? Sure but that’s not my call to make. If they’re offended they’re offended and they’re doing what they gotta do. Going after Yu, You, Yo friends and all the racist Duke peopre.
