Drew Smith Swarthmore Students Stage
Article by Drew Smith;
Student activists at Swarthmore College are demanding the school permanently shut down campus fraternities in the aftermath of leaked documents showing racist, misogynist, and homophobic comments as well as jokes about sexual assault allegations from fraternity members.
The controversy began on April 18 when campus publications Voices and the Phoenix published documents leaked by an anonymous source describing parties thrown by the Swarthmore fraternity Phi Psi. The documents, from 2012 through 2016, included derogatory remarks toward women, minorities and the LGBTQ community as well as discussions of sexual assault and alleged evidence of hazing.
“Rape jokes, descriptions of sexual assault naming specific women and being generally ableist, racist, homophobic,” Olivia Smith, a Swarthmore student, told NBC10.
The articles sparked protests from students, conversations about fraternity culture on campus, and demands for Phi Psi and the school’s only other fraternity, Delta Upsilon, to be closed.
While student activists say the comments from the leaked documents only came from Phi Psi members, they also cited a Tumblr blog detailing alleged incidents of sexual misconduct, racism, and homophobia from members of both campus frats.
“Nothing about these documents reflect that these minutes or hazing practices were done in isolation,” Olivia Smith wrote to NBC10. “The Tumblr speaks to ongoing harm in fraternities and structures of fraternities themselves represent a continuity that works against any sort of isolated set of events.”
On April 27, Swarthmore College President Valerie Smith announced they had suspended fraternity activities pending the outcome of an investigation from an “external investigator.”
