LTD Installs 2013
On April 16th, the Asian Fraternity LTD Lambda Theta Delta is performing blackface in the VEGAS 2013 video! This is proof that anti-blackness is in the Fraternity culture and we will not stand for it. Shame on you LAMBDA!
"UCI Fraternity Lambda Theta Delta posted this video on April 16, 2013. At around the 0:55 mark, you can see one of the members appear on screen in blackface. This is being presented via dropbox link so it can be shared freely without having to worry about the video being removed.
This kind of racist anti-black action is deeply disturbing, and people need to know to understand just how prevalent racism still is in our society. It does not matter if there is a disclaimer that racism was not intended. Blackface has a long hystory of racism and in no way does their disclaimer avoid racism.
In addition to this, LTD is a group that prides itself on it's Asian heritage and even claims to be an affiliate of the Asian Pacific Student Association (APSA) at UCI, a political student organization. If they were affiliated, I believe APSA would not have allowed for such racist remarks. Not only this but LTD claims to "foster cultural awareness". If they were truly culturally aware, they would not have created such a culturally insensitive video.
