Good grief! What is wrong with people? The full article states that Asian-American students comprise 22% of the student population at Duke, yet one of the students claims they are “marginalized.” They should try being Irish.
I wonder if Duke will ban campus St. Patrick’s Day celebrations……..

Duke University fraternity under fire for Asian-themed party
By Kelly Poe
DURHAM — A Duke University fraternity has been suspended from its national affiliation after complaints about a themed party last week that featured Asian stereotypes.
About 200 Duke students gathered Wednesday to protest the Kappa Sigma party, which was held Friday. The party originally was called “Asia Prime” in social media posts that featured references to drinking sake and an exaggerated, stereotypical language, such as saying “Herro” instead of “Hello.”
In response to student complaints, the fraternity changed the party theme to “International Relations” two days before the event. Still, photos from the party showed mostly white students wearing sumo wrestler costumes and chopsticks in their hair.
That was enough to inspire Duke senior Ting-Ting Zhou, president of the Asian Students Association, to help organize Wednesday’s protest.
“My parents gave up everything they had in China to come here to give me a better life: their language, their culture, their educational recognition, their careers,” Zhou said. Other students “can pretend to be Asian for this one night, for this one party, but I have to be Asian my whole life. It trivializes me! It makes me feel like less than a human being.”

Veterans Call Obama Flag Despicable, Desecration
By Todd Starnes
A Florida Democratic Party outpost has taken down an American flag depicting an image of President Obama after a group of veterans complained that the flag had been desecrated.
The flag was flying underneath an American flag outside the Lake County Democratic Party headquarters. Instead of stars, the blue field featured an image of President Obama’s face.
That infuriated local veterans like Jim Bradford, the office manager at the Veterans Memorial at Fountain Park in nearby Leesburg.
“I couldn’t believe that anybody in their right mind would desecrate the American flag that way,” he told Fox News. “It was disrespectful.”
“It’s a cult of personality to show his face, like Stalin or Mao,” said former Marine John Masterjohn in an interview with the Orlando Sentinel. “It’s despicable. They don’t realize how sick they are.”
Nancy Hurlbert, the chairwoman of the local Democratic Party, removed the flag after a group of veterans staged a protest outside her office.

A few weeks ago, The Morning Spew gave our readers a heads up about the OWSers’ plan to “occupy” stores and malls on Black Friday, usually the busiest shopping day of the year. You can read that here.
Apparently not getting enough attention from ”occupying” public spaces, the OWSers want to bring their collective tantrum to us, by blocking our right to freely choose where we shop and engage in commerce. Even though they claim to be leaderless, this sounds like something which should fall under the RICO act. Somebody, somewhere is pulling the strings for these lawbreakers.
I wonder if these OWSers have any idea as to what they are getting themselves into. If they think that they can waltz right into a store on Black Friday and prevent people from shopping, they are incredibly naive.
Here’s a video that helps make my point. Imagine, if you will, a moron in a Guy Fawkes mask trying to prevent this crock pot from finding a good home. I’d pay cash money to see that.
Here’s the short list, straight from their website, for their Black Friday targets:
On Black Friday,
Occupy or boycott:
- Abercrombie & Fitch
- Amazon.com (yes, we
have to stay away from Amazon, too!)
- AT&T Wireless
- Dick’s Sporting Goods (I was surprised, too!)
- The Home Depot
- Neiman Marcus
- Verizon Wireless
Some demonstrators are planning to
occupy retailers on Black Friday to protest “the business that are in the
pockets of Wall Street.”
Organizers are encouraging
consumers to either occupy or boycott retailers that are publicly traded,
according to the Stop Black Friday website.
The goal of the movement is to
impact the profits of major corporations this holiday season.
“The idea is simple, hit the
corporations that corrupt and control American politics where it hurts, their
profits, ” states the Occupy
Black Friday Facebook page.
A few of the retailers the
protesters plan on targeting include Neiman Marcus, Amazon and Wal-Mart.
Their website states the following:
“Keep in mind that we are not occupying small businesses
or hardworking people—we must make a distinction between the businesses that are
in the pockets of Wall Street and the businesses that serve our local
We are NOT anti-capitalist. Just anti-crapitalist.Below is a shortlist for publicly traded large businesses
to Occupy or to boycott on Black Friday. Luckily, most of them don’t have good
presents anyway. If you want to see the top 100 retail businesses for 2010 to
boycott, click here.
