VIRGINIA – Law School students at the University Of Virginia are coming under fire after a picture of a party with a confederate flag peer pong table appeared on Above The Law, a law blog:
On Saturday, February 26th, the party theme was “Partly Like a Rock Star.” This party featured a live band, dancing, and beer pong. Dozens of UVa students attended the party and nonchalantly tossed ping-pong balls into their opponents’ cups on tables adorned with confederate flags.
I overheard a student refer to one of the few black people in attendance as a “n****r.” To my chagrin, no one who heard seemed to have a problem with what was said.
Scenes like this are far too common at Mr. Jefferson’s University. Let this serve as a cautionary tale to any perspective student considering UVA Law.
