SATIRE: It was recently revealed that American University’s Chi Omega sorority Instagram account password had been the n-word for at least a decade. I mean, I get how they got away with it—by telling their Black rushes that the sorority experience is just “not for everybody.” What ensued following this development, however, was widespread backlash from the AU community. The Chi Omega password was changed over quickly to “chink,” which most people on campus were understandably more okay with, except for the small and insignificant Asian American community of which I am reluctantly a part.
