University of Texas Law Students Hold “Ghetto Fabulous” Party

A group of first-year law students at the University of Texas in Austin held a “Ghetto Fabulous” party. Partygoers were dressed in Afro wigs, wore necklaces with large medallions, and had nametags bearing traditionally black names. Partygoers were given 40-ounce bottles of malt liquor to drink.

About 70 of the 1,300 law students at the University of Texas are black. The dean at the law school admonished the students' behavior but stated that he did not believe the students intended to insult their fellow black students. He further stated that no disciplinary actions would be taken against the white law students.
