It was at a rented frat house, everybody was buzzed/drunk/having a good time so nobody cared and those offended (if any) just shrugged it off---no harm, no foul. I do not think that this is necessarily a strong reflection of the views of all those in attendance as there is always an eclectic taste in interior design of frat houses. However, the part in ABL where is said that a black kid was referred to with as a "n word".......that is poor taste and is not acceptable no matter how drunk you are.
See but I equate the confederate flag with the Swastika. If their were Jewish people and the Swastika was on the table would it be acceptable? I know people from the south don't see it but that's the way I feel. If people from UVA view it as an "eclectic taste in interior design", which many of the comments say that they do, I don't want to go there. I'm not saying I'm definitely right or their beliefs are definitely wrong but I know I would be a lot less comfortable with people who held this opinion. Law school is already tough enough, IMO, without this type of stuff.
