It really shouldn't be that hard to determine whether you're celebrating a culture or making fun of it in an incredibly insensitive way. Yet, frat bros and sorority sisters love holding parties with names like "Compton Cookout" and "Conquistabros and Navajos". (It's shocking that the smarties at Harvard, where the latter shindig took place, didn't go all out and call them "Navahoes." Not subtle enough?)
