Racist Sorority Photo: Baylor Students Dress Mexican, Ask ‘Green Card?’

Waco, TX – A racist sorority photo may get some female Baylor students in trouble. The Facebook photos deemed by some as “racist” and “offensive” have raised an online firestorm and have prompted a response by officials at Baylor University, a Christian college in Texas. The controversy rages as the nation considers illegal immigration and how to deal with immigration reform.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Baylor is not the only college to stir up controversy with a racist sorority photo. Over at Penn State, the girls of the Chi Omega sorority threw a Halloween party where they took a group sorority photo with racist features like Mexican sombreros and ponchos. What angered people the most were the blatantly stereotypical signs the sorority girls were holding, saying, “Will mow lawn for weed + beer” and “I don’t cut grass. I smoke it.”

According to Fox News, the racist sorority photos first emerged when Baylor student Hannah Ray posted a public Facebook profile depicting a group of girls dressed in ponchos, sombreros, and fake mustaches. For the photo, the girls even smudged the resemblance of dirt on their faces and hung signs around their necks that read “Green Card?”

The second racist sorority photo was posted on Hannah Ray’s Instagram account. This photo featured the same Baylor girls climbing over a makeshift wall that appears to resemble a border fence. The photo has since been removed from Instagram but the caption read: “Best entrance ever #lodge #mexicans #hoppinthafence viva mexicooooo!!”

Baylor University has not confirmed whether the girls from Baylor were affiliated with a college sorority, but the school has acknowledged that Hannah Ray attends the University. Lori Fogleman, Director of Media Communications for Baylor University, said the school had “no idea where these images came from, or where the party was held.”
