Can you see all the racist connotations in the photo above? How about the photo below? No?
Apparently, Kentucky Derby parties at Dartmouth are racist as is the Kentucky Derby itself. Last year, the hate group Black Lives Matter targeted a Kentucky Derby party hosted at Dartmouth by the Kappa Delta Epsilon sorority.
They said the event was overtly racist and “recreating an Antebellum South atmosphere on the Ivy League campus.”
The party is the “bastion of racism, exclusion and oppression.” They chanted, “What is Derby? It’s the face of genocide” and “What is Derby? It’s the face of police brutality.”
To make matters worse, the sorority members met with Dartmouth’s Afro-American Society after which they decided they would change the Kentucky Derby theme because it’s racist.
This is a good example of mass delusion.
“[It is] related to pre-war southern culture,” KDE vice president Nikol Oydanich told The Dartmouth newspaper. “[The] Derby was a party that had the power to upset a lot of our classmates.”
The first Derby, however, was held in 1875 during the Reconstruction era and Kentucky was neutral during the Civil War.
KDE president Allison Chou told The Dartmouth that the protests leading to the change were helpful – an “opportunity to reflect on what it stands for and the inconsistencies between Derby and the sorority’s values.”
Nothing says racism like horses in Kentucky and ladies in fancy hats.
What’s next, changing the name of the watermelon or of fried chicken? Aren’t they as racist?
Actually, when will the sport of blacks slashing white people in New York City be deemed racist?
