We all love theme-based parties, don't we? They are the ones which make college life that very special. And the best part, they're not offensive, like at all until somebody decides to make them downright creepy and idiotic.
So, some students at the Fairfield University in Connecticut decided to throw a 'ghetto' themed party and thought it to be okay. Well, was it okay?
Nope, it was damn stupid.
Given their idiotic plan of throwing a ghetto-themed party, the students have landed themselves into tons of trouble.

It is truly disappointing to see my fellow students ... behave in such a manner that mocks (another) race," said Anmol Tabassum, a Bridgeport resident and Fairfield University sophomore.
Joe Harding, a Fairfield University junior from Philadelphia said, "When a party has a theme, the participants are expected to wear a costume. In this case, the partygoers chose to wear clothing and accessories that portrayed their conceptualizations of what it means to be ghetto ... Ghetto is not a term of endearment."
The University Vice President of marketing and communications, Jennifer Anderson is working on the details before taking any disciplinary action against the students.
