Phi Gamma Delta @ UC Irvine Hosts Racist Party

2014 FIJI Islander: Shipfaced

Posted on

Update:

Some have accused us of instigating this situation. In truth, we had established civil email communication with the Phi Gamma Delta President more than 24 hours before the event, wherein we attempted to resolve the issue peacefully by laying out clearly the offensive nature of their event and easy steps they could take to resolve the issue without incident. Yet the event still happened, appropriation and all. These are the email records, with personal identifying information blacked out for obvious reasons.

"J" is the Phi Gamma Delta President, "P"/"C" and "S" are concerned students.

Phi Gamma Delta's official nickname is FIJI. Apparently, this nickname should take precedence over FIJI THE PEOPLE. FIJI THE ETHNICITY. FIJI THE CULTURE.

SINCE WHEN DID A HISTORICALLY WHITE MALE INSTITUTION SUPERCEDE ENTIRE COMMUNITIES AND CULTURES?

IRREFUTABLY DE-FUCKING-HUMANIZING.

The president of the fraternity was notified of the community’s concerns yet the party went on. What did he do? Notify the attendees through an *effective* and *clear* facebook post. So articulate.

Some partygoers were kind enough to give their middle fingers at the peaceful protestors.

Unfortunately it was not captured on camera.
