Randolph-Macon launches investigation into ‘reprehensible’ party pictures

ASHLAND, Va. (WTVR) – Officials with Randolph-Macon College in Ashland said they were investigating after “reprehensible” pictures surfaced from a student party.

The photos, which we were told were taken during a “USA vs. Mexico” themed party, depict some students dressed as border control agents and others dressed as caricatures of Mexican immigrants.

“Randolph-Macon College does not tolerate any type of discriminatory behavior,” the school wrote in a statement. “The college finds this type of conduct reprehensible and in direct conflict with our values. We are in the process of holding the individuals and groups involved responsible through our judicial process.”

    Telling the truth is not discrimination. You would think a college would realize that. Just because not all Mexicans are illegal immigrants does not mean this is not the reality of things in some situations. Randolph-Macon has now proved to me it is a joke of a college. Not because of these pictures but because of their illogical claim of such a thing being discrimination.

    What is there to investigate? Satire IIRC is protected and the theme of this party obviously was a satirical take on illegal immigration. Get over it.
