IFC Clears Blackface Party

UVa’s Inter-Fraternity Council has ruled that Zeta Phi members attending the Kappa Alpha Order Halloween party in blackface were engaging in expression protected under the First Amendment, and thus will not be charged with disorderly conduct. IFC did, however, condemn the behavior, saying that the partygoers had “an apparent historical blindness and lack of sensitivity,” recommending that the frats discipline and educate their members. The Post had the story yesterday.
