University of North Dakota Farce Continues

"Expel them"

That's what tribal leaders in North Dakota want done to UND students who wore Sioux-themed (former UND mascot) shirts to a drinking party.

I don’t think there’s any question in anyone’s mind that it’s offensive … offensive and racist,” university spokesman Peter Johnson told Campus Reform. “We see it as a highly unfortunate situation, a terrible situation that connects to our needs to provide better education about sensitivity issues.”

Please. This is a university so nervous that they have banned the Sioux mascot and won't have a new one until sometime in 2015 after a "cooling off period". And to think that they would actually expel these students?  Gimme a break.

Gary, you REALLY can't tell the difference between a Sioux mascot, and a party themed "Sioux-per drunk"?

I'd go half way with you on the first argument, but you are making a royal donkey of yourself defending this drunken party theme.
