Blackface makeup donned by two Lee University students at a Theta Delta Kappa event last week drew a response from school officials and confusion about whether the school's newspaper was OK'd to write about it.
The club's dessert party was rap-song themed, and two female students, Kerri Klenkel and Laura Jones, came as the song "My N----" wearing blackface -- makeup intended to make nonblacks have dark skin -- and baggy white T-shirts.
Klenkel and Jones were not available for comment Thursday evening.
A photo of the two was posted to Twitter, where one person called the outfits "disgusting." One female student tweeted, "So we dress like that now?" in response to the photo.
