Duke University students are protesting an Asian-themed frat party, dubbed a "racist rager," to which Kappa Sigma brothers and partygoers wore stereotypical cone hats, sumo wrestler outfits and geisha robes last Friday, according to CBS News.
Students from the school's Asian American Alliance posted fliers of party's original email invitation all over campus on Tuesday, which featured "Team America's" Kim Jong Il character and intentionally misspelled words, alongside photos of the parties costumed attendees.
"Herro Nice Duke Peopre," the invite read. "We look forward to having Mi, Yu, You, and Yo Friends over for some sake. Chank you."
After students reported the original email to the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, Kappa Sigma changed the name of the party to "International Relations: A Celebration of All Cultures and the Diversity of Duke," a decision which apparently had no bearing on the wardrobe choices of the partygoers, as seen in photos posted to Facebook.
Duke's Asian American Alliance and other students protested on campus Wednesday. After the controversy garnered national media attention, a more formal march in support of "inclusive Duke" is planned for Thursday:
More than 900 people said they would attend.
