College Students Post Instagram Photo Dressed As KKK Members For ‘Politically Incorrect’ Party

Some college students in Australia have their fellow countrymen angry. The students decided to throw a “politically incorrect party” at a local venue, the Black Swan Hotel.

Well… if offending people was the idea, then mission accomplished.

The students (almost all white) decided to dress up in Ku Klux Klan robes, blackface, holocaust prisoner uniforms, and at least one Hitler for the shindig. The students then decided to post pictures all over social media… because of course they did.

Keepin’ it classy, guys.

 

Since party-goers posted pictures online, Twitter had no problem telling them exactly what they thought. Turns out, they aren’t all that impressed.

Australians are using the hashtag #WaggaSaysNotFunny to distance themselves from the group of college students from Charles Sturt University located in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales.

But some people actually think this was totally fine.

What? 

Both the university and the hotel that hosted the event have spoken out saying they do not condone or support this sort of behavior, but – PLOT TWIST – the hotel has since deleted that statement off of all their social media.

As for the university, some don’t think they went far enough in their statement and suggested punishments for the perpetrators. Some also expressed concern for minority students on campus.

Tell us what you think. Did the party-goers go too far? Did they disguise their own racism behind these “politically incorrect” costumes? Or was it a case of college kids that just got carried away again? Let us know!

Erica is the consummate cool-kid. She’s so cool that she’s been talked about in magazines, on blogs and on the radio after losing her left eye because of a piece of glitter. She is still actively mourning the passing of Prince and hopes to one day do an all-iguana remake of Graffiti Bridge since iguanas are plentiful near her home in South Florida. She has yet to find one that can really nail the “ahhhyayayeaheaheah” that Tevin Campbell does in Round and Round, and everyone knows the music is the important part of any Prince film. She’s a mother, singer, writer and (if the internet is to be believed - which we all know it is) a Nigerian socialite mid-ranking member of the Illuminati. She prides herself on being the most popular one-eyed rock star under 5 ft tall in pretty much any room she walks into.
