University of Maryland Investigating Fraternity After Racist Email Surfaces

The party responsible for sending the email has been suspended by the national organization.

The University of Maryland has opened an investigation on a fraternity following the emergence of a disgustingly racist and misogynist and email sent by a member. 

According to the Huffington Post, the email was sent in January 2014 by member of UMD's Kappa Sigma chapter. An excerpt of the email, which was reportedly sent by a white brother of Kappa Sigma, is rife with offensive language: 

Regardless of the rush shirt let's get rachet as f*** during rush week. My d**k will be sucked and f***ed in compound basement whether you guys like it or not. Don't invite any n****r gals or curry monsters or slanted eye chinks, unless they're hot. Ziggy you're [sic] girl can come she's cool. Remember my n***as, erect, assert, and insert, and above all else, f*** consent ... d**ks untouched.

In a statement, the University of Maryland's President President Wallace D. Loh condemned the letter, explaining that the school is getting to the bottom of its origin after learning of the email earlier this week: 

The vulgar language in the email expresses views that are reprehensible to our campus community. We immediately met with the individual involved and a University investigation is currently underway, led by the Office of Civil Rights and Sexual Misconduct. We are in contact with the University chapter of Kappa Sigma and they have taken swift and decisive action in this matter. At their request, the University has committed to provide educational training on diversity and respect for the entire fraternity.

The Huffington Post notes that the national office of Kappa Sigma would not explain why the email is just surfacing after more than a year due to other pending investigations. In a statement, the organization that the member responsible for suspending the email had been suspended.
