PARTY ALLEGEDLY SYMBOLIZES CULTURE OF RACISM AT CLEMSON UNIVERSITY

By FITSNEWS  ||  A gang-themed holiday party at Clemson University in rural South Carolina has exploded onto social media – and prompted the school’s president to meet with protesters who view the event as racist.

Clemson Cripmas” – a party hosted Saturday evening by the school’s embattled Greek community – featured students dressed in gang attire and flashing gang signs.  That’s pretty tame behavior in our book, but some sarcastic tweets from partygoers – who were attending the event at the invitation of members of Sigma Alpha Epsilon – mocked recent race-related campus protests.

That has black students enraged.

According to these students, there is a culture of racism on Clemson’s campus – one which the “Cripmas” party capably reinforced.  Specifically, these students point to white students who have lashed out on social media in the wake of recent protests of police shootings in Ferguson, Missouri and Staten Island, New York – shootings that featured black victims.

One message referred to the protesting black students as “tar babies,” while another urged them to “Go Back to Africa!”  Other messages mocked the #BlackLivesMatter social media tags associated with recent protests.

“Minority students are concerned that this is a direct response to peaceful rallies on campus,” one concerned student wrote in response to the ‘Cripmas’ party.

“Clemson is better than this,” Clemson president Jim Clements wrote in an email to students in the wake of the ‘Cripmas’ party.  “Everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion about events in Ferguson, Staten Island and the protest rallies that those events have spawned.  Great universities are built on the free expression and exploration of ideas. But the free expression of opinion must not cross the line and become harassment or intimidation, just as rallies and protest marches must not cross the line to lawlessness.”

Clements also met on Sunday morning with students who were upset over the party.

Missed the bash?  Here are some pics …

Racism at Clemson probably shouldn’t come as a surprise.  After all the school’s most famous building – Tillman Hall – is named after Benjamin Tillman, an outspoken white supremacist and lynch law advocate who was indicted (but never tried) for his role in the 1876 Hamburg Massacre.  The school’s Institute of Government?  It’s named after longtime segregationist U.S. Senator Strom Thurmond.  Hell, the ground on which Clemson stands was once the plantation of John C. Calhoun – one of the staunchest antebellum pro-slavery advocates.

“I hold that in the present state of civilization, where two races of different origin, and distinguished by color, and other physical differences, as well as intellectual, are brought together, the relation now existing in the slaveholding States between the two, is, instead of an evil, a good—a positive good,” Calhoun once famously said. “There never has yet existed a wealthy and civilized society in which one portion of the community did not, in point of fact, live on the labor of the other.”

Clemson’s fraternity and sorority community has been under intense scrutiny following the death of 19-year-old Tucker Hipps back in September.  In fact our post last week regarding what might have happened to Hipps prompted a flood of comments and criticism related to the incident, the university and this website.

Last week Clemson unceremoniously fired its vice president of student affairs – one week after Hipps’ parents told local television station WYFF TV 4 (NBC – Greenville) that the school’s fraternity pledging processes were “broken” and that the truth about their son’s death had yet to come out.

An official Oconee County Sheriff’s office report on Hipps’ death is due out any day now, although we don’t put too much stock in its credibility given that the department appears to be in the back pocket of the university.

UPDATE: MORE “CRIPMAS”

UPDATE II: FRATERNITY RESPONDS …

Of course some white people engage is similar behavior, but playing the moral “high ground” card works on the stupid and intellectually careless. Young white people and bleeding hearts will believe anything, especially if Anderson Cooper and Al Sharpton and some idiot rapper say it on YouTube.

ikr, I’m confused as to how this party was racially insensitive. It’s not a “dress like a minority” party. The fact that people are immediately associating any race with gang members speaks to their perceptions on race.

Now imagine being a black person trying to make something of him/herself, and having to constantly be stereotyped as the above, every time they go to a job interview, every time they get pulled over, every time they go shopping, etc.

Nah, let’s just continue bashing the black community in its entirety and act surprised when they don’t react with the utmost thanks for it.

E Norma Scok December 8, 2014 at 9:26 am

Maybe, the “black community”, should stop complaining about that, and do something about it? I see at least 3 news reports a month after a murder where someone from the “black community” is saying how the “violence between young black men must stop”.

Ok..I agree, it must stop.

So what is going to stop it? Either: 1) there are no more young black men left to kill one another 2) when young black men finally decide that living the lifestyle of the wannabe gangsters they worship will only lead to prison, or death, or both.

As long as people continue to be stupid, someone is going to belittle and judge them for it. And why shouldn’t they?

What can I do when I read that because I’m white, I’m somehow privileged?

And apparently, I’m now a racist as well (according to you), because I think people who worship gangster wannabes are idiots, and deserve to made fun of? Is that really a racist position?

Looks like yet another stupid (and ironic) party run by frats at a school in which white kids bust their a$$ses to get into in order to escape the higher black populations of other state colleges/universities in SC. (Again, soooo ironic). But anyway, regardless of the stupid theme of this party, I truly could care less what those who whine think about this party because in the end, I save my respect for those people who exhibit self-respect themselves. And clearly, so many within this community with their N-word, bitches, and hoes heroes don’t exhibit a whole lot of self-respect.

I do agree with you that this could become a relatively minor issue, depending on how the Hipps investigation goes. I see the story below this one has more than 77,000 hits. It appears lots of people are looking on. I wonder if the feds will get involved at some point or if the parents will sue for millions. I hear the university essentially ran out of money fighting lawsuits in the recent Charleston architecture center debacle. $10 million project and the university had to abandon it. Ouch.

euwe max December 8, 2014 at 3:47 am

The term redneck is chiefly used for a rural poor white person of the Southern United States.

By 1975, say Chapman and Kipfer, the term had expanded in meaning beyond the poor Southerner to refer to “a bigoted and conventional person, a loutish ultra-conservative

..so I’d think anyone could act like a redneck – no matter what the color of their skin is… acting doesn’t have a skin color.

Just because you repeat something every few years (or every few minutes) doesn’t make it any more valuable, or true, or enlightening.

Its just makes you someone else on the internet with an opinion.

Yes a Cartoon. Sadly the Griffins are probably the most accurate portrayal of a typical American Family on television today, except maybe the Simpsons. Where are the good TV role models like Cliff Huxtible?

Ladies and gentlemen, I’ll be brief. The issue here is not whether we broke a few
rules, or took a few liberties with our female party guests—we did. [winks at Dean Wormer] But you can’t hold a whole fraternity responsible for the behavior of a
few, sick perverted individuals. For if you do, then shouldn’t we blame
the whole fraternity system? And if the whole fraternity system is
guilty, then isn’t this an indictment of our educational institutions in
general? I put it to you, Greg: isn’t this an indictment of our entire
American society? Well, you can do what you you want to us, but we’re
not going to sit here and listen to you badmouth the United States of
America. Gentlemen!

this “article” is absurd and laughable! let us condemn a whole university as racist and bigoted because of a few people that lived almost 200 years ago and for a bunch of kids dressing up as gangsters for a party writing stupid tweets (yes they were racist tweets). with that logic why don’t we condemn the entire US white population for their ancestors role in the slave industry, as well as ban all pirate parties because they’re racist against pirates.

I saw this article on social media so i have never been here before but i sincerely hope this is a satirical website. I also lost all the remaining respect i had for this ludicrous website after reading this “although we don’t put too much stock in its credibility given that the department appears to be in the back pocket of the university.” could you please point me to ANY credible, hell even non credible, news article stating anything close to this, or even a shred of evidence? truly absurd….

Crips are infamous for brutal crime sprees, murders and the like. However, since they are made up of black thugs they are a protected class. Clements should not have even acknowledged this event. Case in point. Should an accident or altercation occur at an off-campus residence and the campus police were called they would tell the caller to fuck off and call the Clemson police or local sheriffs department.

These sensitive little “people” who didn’t get invited to a party that night decided to stir up some shit and tattletale to daddy “Clements” so being the state-run government institution that it is he had to react.

Here is an idea. Clemson has spent so much time this semester policing the off-campus activities of frats either require frats to remain on-campus or shut em all down and get on with teaching classes. Perhaps too logical and, by God, that would only take one decision and eliminate a whole bunch of government jobs now wouldn’t it?

since all students pay tuition and fees to be there (or someone else pays in their name a.k.a. scholarships, or it is deferred payment a.k.a. loans) , all students should feel equally respected and safe to be there. According to the number of reports I’m reading, Clemson if falling short of this goal for all students. They seem to have a very large problem that they should probably spend some serious time addressing.

Dang. Where was this scholarship plan when I was getting my education? Loans, check. Pell grant, check. Maybe some of us got grant-in-aid, from our individual schools. I only know my own story. The American tax payers put me through on low-interest loans (and I’m paying them back on-time, ty) and grant-in-aid from the schools, very small amount as aid from the US gov as a straight up grant.

Reply
Kara Frances December 15, 2014 at 4:03 pm

Nope. Private parties are totally protected by the freedom of speech, completely agree, probably by the right to assembly, too. The part that sucks is that at Clemson the Frats and Sororities aren’t private, as they are regulated by the University, making them subject to university rules and regulations. Even if the houses are technically off-campus. At other universities, you would be correct, they aren’t recognized by the university and therefore private. the You really shouldn’t make snide comments about how the freedom of speech applying to stuff that “I don’t like” unless you know a little bit about the poster. See, because, it also applies to stuff you don’t like. That’s the nature of America.

AX YOU A QUESTION December 8, 2014 at 12:27 pm

Last year, a white guy and a few black guys were in an off-campus apartment. Three black guys broke in and killed the white Clemson student. Where was your outrage then you freaking hypocrite? I AXED YOU A QUESTION GIRL?

What are you going on about? where do you read OUTRAGE in that post? I stated very clearly that since all students paid tuition and fees they deserve to be in a place they feel safe. I had no outrage in my blood about any of it. You jump my shi* and compare this situation to when a girl LOST her LIFE. Her LIFE. As in her soul exists no more on this earth b/c of someone else’s hand-that is criminal behavior and the thugs deserve to go to jail for life. Do the 20 white kids imitating thugs deserve to get off scot free. No. They don’t. Sorry, but they don’t. However, Does their behavior deserve the same response/punishment as a child losing her life HELL NO. Don’t step to me with your crass-ass language and some half-ass comparison of some white-ass clueless kiddies having a thug party with full-on thugs killing a baby. That is faulty logic. Like the two situations are even remotely similar. If anyone had the same response to both situations or found the murder of anyone; Black, White, Asian, Hispanic, or Native to be less reprehensible than racist rhetoric or a white kiddie thug party-they need to get their head, soul, and personality checked.

Where the hell do you get off reading into my statement and deciding that I was equating the seriousness of white kids playing at ghetto to a child getting murdered? A life cut down?? (BTW, the story changed somewhere along the line my comment was not on the foolishness of the crimpas party). If you want to know who the F**& b*& is here, look in the mirror, because it certainly is not me. I did not make that leap in logic, you did. I was not expressing “outrage”, simply facts. I was not equating college kid’s bad decisions with a child’s death at the hands of another, you did that. YOU. DID. THAT. all by yourself.

Allowing posting of faces, identification and events on the internet without furnishing a accurate story line may and will result in students coming to physical and mental harm.

Legal & criminal action is assured should this reckless behavior be further tolerated.
