Outrage at Maryland sorority sister who celebrated birthday with racist cake and shared image on Instagram

Sounds like a joke gone wrong

A sorority girl at the University of Maryland is facing outrage after she posed for a photo with a racist birthday cake made of alcohol bottles that reads, 's*** a n**** d***' on her 21st birthday.

The photo from Delta Gamma Sorority was posted online to Instagram along with an offensive hashtag comment that featured the 'n-word.'

University of Maryland student Chandler Perry told Pulsefeedz that she saw the photo on her Instagram feed and was angered by what she saw.  I was so baffled that 77 people liked it and none of those 77 people told her it was inappropriate,' Perry said.

The photo reached the eyes of the vice president of public relations for the University of Maryland's Black Student Union Samira Jackson who wasn’t pleased.  'I didn’t know it was okay for white people to say n**** now? Who knew?'

As soon as the University heard about the backlash surrounding the photo, The University of Maryland Department of Fraternity and Sorority Life posted a response to their Twitter and said, 'We are aware of an insensitive post from a community member and are addressing it with the chapter as it does not align with our Greek values.'

The sorority posted on their Facebook saying, 'We have become aware of an unacceptable Instagram post by a member of our chapter. The Fraternity volunteers and staff are working with our chapter at the University of Maryland at this time to hold this member accountable.'

If someone wants to be a bigoted racist, that's their business.

The bigger issue here is her probable underage drinking.

It may be the outrage may be more about perceived competition than the use of the "N" word.

If her skin color was different would it be okay for her to stand next to the cake?
I guess in our enlightened society you have to be a certain pigment to stand next to a collection of letters.
