Don't Talk Shit on MySpace

Fraternity Investigates MySpace Posts

As reported by The Chronicle:

Leaders of the Kappa Sigma fraternity at the University of Michigan at Flint have written a letter of apology and say they will investigate chapter members who ran an online group that was perceived as racist.

The controversial site, “2nd Floor UCEN, We’re Takin’ It Back,” called on people to “take back” the second floor of the campus’s University Center. A cultural lounge there is a popular gathering place for black students. While several students told the newspaper that they disregarded the comments, others said they were offended by negative stereotypes used on the site.

The site was apparently posted in the fall but taken down within the past month. The fraternity’s apology is scheduled to appear in the student newspaper, The Michigan Times, on Monday.
