Shocking images of Australian students dressed as the Ku Klux Klan, concentration camp prisoners, Adolf Hitler and a black cotton picking slave at a party are circulating online.
Students at Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, are embroiled in a racism and anti-semitism scandal after holding a ‘politically incorrect’ themed fancy dress party to celebrate the end of their exams.
The group of male students posed for photos which were lated uploaded to Instagram. While the photos have now been taken down, or their accounts made private, the images are being re-shared over social media by people calling out their disgusting behaviour.
In one photo five people who are dressed as the Ku Klux Klan stand in front of another who has blacked up and is holding a bowl of cotton balls, “it’s a great time to be pikin’ (sic)” the caption reads.
A second photo sees three men dressed as Jewish concentration camp prisoners with a man dressed in what appears to be a Hitler inspired costume, a Nazi uniform with a black moustache, crouching in the corner - it received one hundred and six ‘likes’.
The orgainsers of this particular party were clearly out to cause offence by planning the party to be “politically incorrect themed”, and telling invitees to “grab a kit (costume) that would legally get you in shit”. This grotesque event comes only months after a series of racist and anti-semitic posters were put up around Charles Sturt University's Bathurst campus over the Christmas break.
CSU say they are investigating the horrific incident, releasing a statement yesterday they said: “We are aware of an incident that occurred last night that may have involved Charles Sturt University students. Charles Sturt University (CSU) will not tolerate this offensive behaviour. It does not reflect our University values and we strongly condemn these actions. CSU is currently investigating these incidents and social media posts.”
