Methodist University suspends sorority following racist presentation

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Methodist University has suspended a sorority as complaints mount on social media over a presentation last week at a sorority event that many found racist.

During the PowerPoint presentation, a member of Alpha Delta Pi rated pictures of Black players on last year's Methodist football team and pointed out features, such as dreadlocks, noses and lips that she found unattractive. The presentation was supposed to be funny, but few found humor in it.

"I don't see why something along the lines of this is funny. I don't see how it's funny," said Ja-Quez Harrell, a Methodist senior and former member of the football team who was sent a photo of the presentation the following day.

"With everybody that was there, how come nobody stopped it?" Harrell asked.
I believe in the values of friendship and fidelity to purpose
