New Mexico sorority facing heat for racial remarks

September 25, 2018

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A University of New Mexico sorority is facing criticism after some students say members used racial remarks during a workshop.

The Daily Lobo reports the Black Student Alliance said members of the Kappa Kappa Gamma asked black students to get away and to “stop wearing grills.”

The group says sorority members also mocked a black administrator as she spoke during a workshop for incoming Greek Life members.

Black Student Alliance member Nieajua Gonzalez says she confronted one of the Kappa Kappa Gamma members about her comments and the sorority member laughed.

The national chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma says it is reviewing the case and “will determine any appropriate next steps.”
