      This college is beyond liberal. Macalaster is known as the most liberal campus in Minnesota. It is way to humorous that this would happen there!

      It is just so typical of liberals like these young Democrats…they like to say things or have their politicians do things that make them feel better about themselves…but when push comes to shove they are totally the opposite of their feelings.

      I think that it was an incredibly stupid thing to do. In this day and age, everyone knows better than to pull such a stunt. They may as well have dressed in Nazi uniforms and hailed Hitler.

      A satire is thought-provoking. What happened that night in Minnesota was nothing of the sorts. These were guys that were trying to have a good time, at a costume party. There was no intellectual discussions about the irony of their actions, nor any intellectual reflection… Only a bunch of drunks having a good time at the expense of others.

      I think the school needs to take some kind of disciplinary action… like expulsion! We need to send a strong message to our youth, the future of our country, this kind of non-sense will not be tolerated.

      “A party that asked students to come dressed “politically incorrect” has prompted an investigation by Macalester College officials who learned one student was costumed as a Ku Klux Klan member and another wore blackface with a noose around his neck.”

      The plot behind the party was to be politically incorrect. By definition the costumes will offend.

      Expulsion? The backlash those students are being subjected to will most likely serve as a learning experience to all those at that party.

      We are probably dealing with kids that have never really dealt with race relations, or racism, or its affects. Now they will have some idea.
