Title

Column "Frat Chat: March Brings Activities for Fraternities"

Description

This column called "Frat Chat" focuses on activities and news within the Fraternity system. The column goes on to explain various frat related activities such as dances, parties, and new pledges. One brother referred to as "Moose" is described as having "yellow fever." This is following the question, "Why do redheads seem to attract redheads?" This allows the reader to assume that "yellow fever" is meant in the definition of white men or women who have sexual preference for those of Asian descent. "Yellow fever" is recognized as a way to generalize, exoticize, and fetishize people of Asian descent and is widely recognized as offensive.
