Several different groups of college kids, identified in the article as white college kids, have thrown "ghetto" or "gangsta" parties at campuses across the nation.
(Some have done MLK parties in blackface too, which is unquestionably offensive and tacky, I'm not debating this).

College leaders, black fraternity leaders, and the NAACP is speaking out against these ghetto parties where people wear bling, grills on their teeth, and bring machine guns as being
derogatory and offensive to black Americans.

Personally, I think when the living image of these stereotypes permeates and is seen everywhere in our pop culture today, that emulating this is not about race, and that the NAACP needs to pull
the stick out of its ass. Ghetto and gangsta isn't synonymous with black, mexicans, asians, or whites.

Do you find the throwing of these parties offensive, or do you think the NAACP needs to pull the stick out of its ass as well?
