This weekend, according to a student by the name of Neema Githere at Yale, some pretty backwards stuff went down at an SAE party. Though Neema herself was not present, she claims her friends, women of color, were turned away from the party which was allegedly “white girls only.”
Commenters on the status shared similar stories.
Ivonne Gonzalez Reminds me of the time they asked me and a group of other Latino, predominantly Mexican, friends for our passports when we tried to go to their shitty party a little over a year ago… So sorry this shit is still happening! Can’t stand those rich, spoiled and rude brats.
Kiki Palmer I’m sorry love. Throwback to spring fling two years ago when I was called a n***erb**ch
Timiebi Reminds me of that time they told me they wouldn’t let me in unless they could all individually touch my fro
The fraternity has denied any of the claims. Yale SAE President Grant Mueller was “shocked and flabbergasted” at the accusation that “anyone in SAE would even have these words come from their mouths.” Mueller continued in a statement to the Yale Daily News that they “try to be so incredibly accepting and take pride in our diversity,” so the news was “just kind of upsetting.”
After being notified about the post at 8pm Saturday night, Mueller contacted his college dean as well as the dean of student engagement. The fraternity plans to attend a forum at the Afro-American Cultural Center to discuss the events. The school is continuing in an investigation about the ongoings of that night, but no conclusive results have been drawn..
