NY POST - Some sorority sisters at the University of New Hampshire are being investigated after a video showing them singing along to a Kanye West song containing the n-word was posted on social media.The Snapchat video shows the members of Alpha Phi Sorority dancing at a party and singing the n-word as part of the lyrics to the song. It prompted other students to condemn the sorority’s “ignorant and insensitive” behavior.
The critique was posted Tuesday on an anti-racism student Facebook group called “All Eyes on UNH.”“A member of Alpha Phi Sorority put up this video of girls singing along to ‘Gold Digger’ by Kanye West on her Instagram story,” the post reads. “The girls sing the N-word without thinking of the implications.”
“This is a showcase of ignorance and that the Panhellenic Council should do better in combating racism. The first step is addressing willful ignorance.”
Social media users rushed to criticize the sorority, claiming it perpetuates racism.
“If you know the lyrics so well, then you should know when the word is coming up and literally shut your mouth,” UNH student Sofia Ford commented under the video on Facebook.
“Not a word for us (white people) to use under any circumstances. It’s ignorant and insensitive. Literally, the N-word should never leave your mouth. If you are white and think this is OK, then you have some serious growing up to do. Buy a dictionary and look up the term ‘institutionalized racism,’ and then come and defend this behavior.”
“Hey white people, literally just don’t broadcast you and your clan of Beckys saying the N-word and you’ll be fine,” seconded Maggie Lowe. “Don’t give any ‘it’s expression crap’ because white people will never ever ever be able to tell me what it’s like to be an ‘n-word.’”
DUMBEST CONTROVERSY IN THE HISTORY OF CIVILIZATION ALERT! DUMBEST CONTROVERSY IN THE HISTORY OF CIVILIZATION ALERT! Listen racism exists. Nobody will ever deny that. But getting your panties bent out of shape about this shit is crazytown. It actually hurts the people fighting real causes. You are doing a disservice to actual racism issues. White girls, basic bitches, Becky with the good hair, white boys, surfer brahs, black people are are allowed to sing Kanye West lyrics. If you don’t want white girls singing along then then don’t put the N word in the lyrics and make it catchy as fuck. It’s that fucking simple. I wish the school administrators would grab their nutsack and tell all these crybabies that are complaining about this to shut the fuck up and worry about themselves. God I hate people sometimes.
PS – Girls are so weird. Is this what they do when we watch football?
Double PS – That girl in the white pants is going SO hard in the paint.
