    More than a dozen students at elite $20,000-a-year Catholic prep school suspended over racist-themed 'wigger' party




    Fourteen students from a mostly white prestigious Catholic prep school in San Francisco have been suspended for attending an off-campus party where teenagers wore clothes commonly associated with urban black culture.
    The Rev. Edwin Harris, president of St. Ignatius College Preparatory High School, told parents in a letter that the alcohol-fueled bash at a large city park called Sigmund Stern Grove 'appropriated pervasive negative stereotypes' and carried 'racial overtones and racist implications'.
    'Regardless of the intent of those who participated, their actions had an adverse effect on the community and on them,' Harris said. 'We categorically condemn this gathering as it does not represent the Ignatian values or ideals that our school stands for.'

    Offensive: School officials say the event was billed as a 'wigger' party - an offensive term combining the word 'white' and the N-word, and referring to a gathering for white people who emulate the language, gestures and dress popularized by rap and hip-hop videos
    The party last weekend in San Francisco drew teenagers from several schools and was not organized by St. Ignatius students, Harris said. School administrators learned about it Tuesday from students who had seen photos on Instagram, he said.
    Photos that were taken at the January 23 event and later obtained by the station KPIX show high school students of both sexes, most of them seemingly white, wearing low-riding baggy pants, oversize basketball jerseys and track suits, and sporting braids.

    Many of the partygoers seen in the pictures also made hand gestures seemingly meant to mimic gang signs.
    The station reported that the Saturday night beer bash drew 80-100 students, including black teens, from five different schools.
    St. Ignatius Principal Patrick Ruff told the San Francisco Chronicle the weekend party was billed as a so-called 'wigger' party - an offensive term combining the word 'white' and the N-word, and referring to a gathering for white people who emulate the language, gestures and dress popularized by rap and hip-hop videos.
    'It's disheartening and incredibly sad this type of thing exists not just for SI, but for the entire city,' Ruff told the newspaper.

    Elite: Tuition at the prep school is just over $20,200 a year, and of the 1,474 students enrolled in St Ignatius, 59 percent are white and just under five percent are black

    The party at a city park called Sigmund Stern Grove (park is pictured above) drew 80-100 students from five schools
    Students and parents at the school were divided on the suspensions, with some deeming the disciplinary measure as overly harsh, pointing out that the party took place off campus and not during school hours.
    Others, like 18-year-old Thomas O'Halloran, a senior, said that those who attended the party should have known better.
    'You can’t go to a party like that and post pictures on social media and think that nothing is going to happen,' he told the Chronicle. 'It’s just weird that this would happen at an institution that tries so hard to promote inclusion.'
    The suspended St. Ignatius students will be required to meet with members of the school's Black Student Union, and administrators are planning a school-wide assembly to discuss diversity, Harris said.
    According to information available on the school's website, of the 1,474 students enrolled in St Ignatius, 59 percent are white and just under five percent are black.
    Tuition at the elite school, founded in 1855 by a Jesuit priest, is just over $20,200 a year. St Ignatius' list of notable alumni includes such recognizable names as philanthropist John Paul Getty Jr, California Governor Jerry Brown, former Mayor of San Francisco George Moscone and Daily Show correspondent Al Madrigal, among others.

    Yup, and it's a private school. I went to Catholic school, they can suspend you for whatever the fuck they want to, and if you don't like it stop giving them your money.

    They had a theme party for that? If they wanted to see what that was like they should've just looked through white neighborhood high school yearbooks from the 90s.

    I think it's a proper function, satirically denouncing the appropriation of black culture.

    These children are saints!!!

    Wrong, had this occurred in the 70's no one would've batted an eye.
