The Black Student Alliance joins the Asian Student Association, their allies and the socially conscious Duke community in condemning the “Kappa Sigma Asia Prime” party and other such actions of racial insensitivity. At Duke, we have been blessed with an incredibly diverse community, which enhances our academic and social experiences. When people feel marginalized, disrespected, belittled and unappreciated, those experiences are threatened. No group—racial or otherwise—should be subjected to this type of insensitivity. We call for reflection and dialogue about racial justice and mutual understanding as we attempt to move past this issue as a student body.
