Yup, people still haven’t learned that blackface just isn’t cool.

Black student groups at UCLA are up in arms about a predominantly White fraternity and sorority holding a “Kanye West”-themed party. According to the student paper, the party-goers dressed in baggy clothes, blackface, and traditional Kardashian-like attire.

Pictures of the party filled with Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity and Alpha Phi sorority members flooded social media and ignited the hashtag #blackbruinsmatter. According to the LA Times, the Afrikan Student Union is planning to meet at noon on Thursday at the Bruin Bear statue, where students will wear black.

Kelsee Thomas, a member of the Black student union, said students spoke to frat members at the party, and one even apologized, but laughed when she asked him to write a letter to the group.

  1. We’ve seen this article before,but NOTHING has been done about theft! Sounds like a repeat with definitely injustices that are looked over! But remember TIME BRINGS ABOUT A CHANGE. To me it looks as though people are paid to be messy,rather than doing there job! But Remember BE not deceived GOD is not MOCKED,what you sow you shall REAP!We’ve seen the Repeat, but a Plenty forgot about JUSTICE!:)

    “…holding a “Kanye Western”-themed…” was it a western themed party? Doesn’t look like it from the pic. Oh wait, this is BAWs finest journalism.
