Dave: Cornell had a bad spin with "ghetto fabulous" parties too. See this Cornell Daily Sun article. My old residence hall director said that while it was okay for David Chapelle to make fun of ghetto lifestyle, the mostly white kids in the frat house were crossing the line:

[Chappelle] is coming from an informed perspective, so he is a cultural satirist. These party-goers are not. Really, they are not making fun of hip-hop, they are making fun of you and me. They are trying to cover it up by saying it is a hip-hop party.

Or, you know, they were planning a party, and they were brainstorming themes when a G-unit video came on the air.
