[EDITOR’S NOTE: Apparently, these Northwestern University students didn’t get our memo.]
Two Northwestern students who attended a Halloween party dressed in blackface have sparked a public outcry from the NU community.
The photos, posted on the students’ Facebook pages, have prompted campus groups to organize a closed forum Tuesday to discuss the incident with students.
“While I fully support the principles of free expression, at the same time I am deeply disappointed to see any example of insensitivity that demeans a segment of our community,” said Northwestern President Morton O. Schapiro in an e-mail to the NU community.
One of the students involved in the incident reportedly dressed as Bob Marley, painting his entire body black and wearing a shirt with the word “Jamaica.”
