If you thought that racist frat parties were a thing of the past, you are sadly mistaken.
Baylor University’s chapter of Kappa Sigma is feeling the heat after throwing a "Mexican"-themed party.
According to The Waco-Tribune Herald, the college frat was suspended by its national chapter for the offensive event.
Skye Thomas, a freshman at Baylor who went to the party, even said that people were in brownface. Um, WTF.
Thomas told BuzzFeed that the inviation had publicized it as "Drinko de Mayo," "Cinco de Mayo," or as a "fiesta."
"Apparently, they have chanted 'Build the wall' before and then threw a party to 'celebrate' a Mexican holiday, so that is one of the reasons many people were hurt by it," she said.
For reference, the private Christian university is in Texas, where Latinos make up 39% of the state's population.
Their party was disrespectful, to say the least, and when Halley Yzquierdo shared her frustrations with it, this is the response she got:
The receipts say it all.
It was so bad that people started calling out the fraternity with the #DearKappaSig hashtag.
Unfortunately these incidents have become far too common at educational institutions.

As Baylor student Natasha Nkhama said, “I’m just tired. I don’t want to do this anymore. I don’t want us to have to keep walking every time something like this happens. And as tired as you are of hearing about racism, we’re tired of experiencing it."
