Tri Delta quickly followed suit, issuing an apology of its own for its role in the event and vowing to continue working with the college to ‘educate our members regarding cultural sensitivity and awareness.’
Despite the apologies, the Dartmouth College chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People blasted the gangland-themed party along with the groups that hosted it.
In a strongly worded letter, the NAACP condemned the party hosted mostly by white students and urged the Dartmouth community to report the event to the college administration as a ‘bias incident.’
The Bloods is a notorious street gang founded in Los Angeles. The group is widely known for its rivalry with the Crips. They are identified by the red color worn by their members, in contrast to the Crips who wear blue.
