Ancient Egypt themed party canceled after offended university students cry “cultural appropriation”

StaffRebel Columnist

A fraternity at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor has canceled an ancient Egypt and Nile River themed party after being called out for “appropriating Egyptian culture.”

Despite the fact that ancient Egypt is no longer a thing, Delta Sigma Phi apologized for the “insensitive” choice of party.

The Daily Wire reports that a Facebook invitation for the now canceled party stated:

“Come to Delta Sig as a mummy, Cleopatra, or King Tut, it doesn't matter to us. Get your best ancient Egyptian robe and headdress and be ready to party in the desert. Be careful though, it's going to get HOT.”

One student who took an issue with the party was Egyptian Student Association President Yasmeen Afifi. On a Facebook post, Afifi wrote:

“It is more saddening to see students from the top public university in the United States engaging in these ignorant stereotypes. My Egyptian roots are far more significant than a simple costume or a lame party. I take pride in the grandeur of my people’s legacy and will not allow my culture to be appropriated for your entertainment.”

The post then started getting quite racist against white frats:

“Although I’m not surprised and couldn’t expect more out of a white fraternity, the conversation still needs to be had. This ignorance and disrespect is not an isolated incident and it appears the white frats didn’t learn after Theta Xi’s “Hood Ratchet Thursday” party. It’s unfortunate and pathetic that they lack the creativity to throw a fun party without being at the expense of another culture and people.” (...)

“White people need to cognizant of their identity and their role throughout history. White people have invaded, stolen, erased, and defaced numerous ancient Egyptian artifacts, symbols and temples in attempt to claim one of the greatest civilizations as their own. Europeans have worked so diligently to eliminate all traces of African facial features by lightening skin colors of painted relics inside tombs and temples.” 

Yet again, the offended crybabies get what they want. Remember when people didn't whine all the time and awesome parties were had? What happened to that?

I love them one about ancient Egypt being one of the “greatest civilizations” . Do they not know of the horrors committed and the slavery associated with that “greatest civilization”???? So stupid.

Is it not appropriation for a moronic SJW, who is not a member of these groups, claiming to speak for them??

It pains me to see the administrators of learning institutions capitulate with the anti-intellectual hysteria of diaper-wetting Bolsheviks.

By the way, going back to your country, you must not take a plane invented by white people, but row in a boat.

It’s cultural appropriation to be on Facebook, founded and invented by white people.

It’s cultural appropriation to attend an American university founded by white people, and to be in a country founded by whites.

His ancestral heritage and traditions? Is he Coptic? You know, the Christians of Egypt directly descended from the ancient Egyptians and were followers of Cleopatra who converted when she became Christian.

If not, and he is Muslim, he is probably a descendant of the Muslims that came out of Saudi Arabia and took over Egypt. Their heritage in the region is about 1400 years, so claiming ancient Egypt as his past is, well, BS and cultural appropriation.

If it were not for Europeans the pyramids and ancient cities of Egypt would still be covered in dirt. The ancient texts would be unreadable as it was, oh, a Frenchman who deciphered the language. Most of the tomes would still be lost, and the Sphinx would still be buried. So let this pissant should stop complaining and get down on his knees and thank the West and Europe for opening up the backward nation Egypt became under Islam. As for “painting” the faces of ancient art, its called restoration, something his people hadn’t bothered doing for one heck of a long time.

For him to call himself Egyptian is almost a joke. His ancestors were not from there. Actually, Jews were in that land far before Muslims invaded.

Should I mention that most technology and enlightenment in Islam was appropriated from captured and enslaved peoples? Take about cultural appropriation. But yes, they did give us chess – teaching war techniques.

As Don MacDonald rightly pointed out, English, Western clothes, shoes, et cetera, have been appropriated by him. Cell phone? Computer? Flying by jet? Drive a car? Western inventions.

Actually, a good deal of modern technology was developed in Israel. I would not want him to take Aspirin or a good many other medical cures invented by Jews. He should not take advantage of many medical instruments or medical procedures that were invented by Jews. He should not use digital editing of images to send back home as that was an Israeli invention. It would be cultural appropriation.

Again we are told what to think. He might want to ask about his cultural appropriation of using slaves. Remember people. It were white cultures that freed slaves and that I am proud of. Please feel free to appropriate that culture middle east. You have many workers there working as practical slaves. And I doubt that ancient Egyptians were the same as the current Egyptians. There is no way that the present incompetents built those Pyramids. Aliens is more believable than the current Jew hating Egyptians.

Why aren’t the SJW’s demanding the pyramids be demolished… they were built by slaves?!

" I take pride in the grandeur of my people’s legacy ".
Aw , such tender sensibilities from a culture that taught the world how to hate the Jews . Were the Nazis guilty of cultural appropriation when they set up extermination / slavery camps for the Jews ?
There is a photo on the internet " Adolf Hitler talking to Grand Mufti Haj Amin el Husseini of Egypt". Is this the grandeur of his people’s legacy ?
As for this dim bulb – if he’s talking in English , he appropriating my mother tongue . If he’s wearing western clothing instead of a dishdasha , he’s appropriating my culture.
What is part of his culture was the old Egyptian religion and its Gods. That would be something to venerate if he was that interested in his ancient culture. Sadly Mohamed and his followers beat that out the Egyptians and this dude would probably rather sh*t his pants that to go against the JewHaters 2.0 .

Just another bloviating troglodyte hiding behind the walls of an idiot factory known as a university.

Why do we pay attention to these pinheads? Ignore them and maybe they’ll go away.
