Affirmative action, Texas style

From College Station, home of the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum:

Texas A&M Embarrassed by 'Ghetto Party'

Texas A&M University officials are trying to stop some students' plans to mark Monday's Martin Luther King Jr. holiday with an-off campus party at which guests are encouraged to mimic stereotypes about blacks.

``It's hard to understand how students could live in today's world and think a party playing on stereotypes of African-Americans would be acceptable,'' said Ron Sasse, director of dormitories at the College Station campus, where 85 percent of the students are white and 3 percent are black.

No, it really isn't hard to understand at all.
