'Siouxper Drunk' T-shirts spark controversy at UND

GRAND FORKS – Students at the University of North Dakota’s American Indian Student Services Center said Monday they were angry and frustrated when the university failed to discipline groups of people who wore racially offensive shirts at the annual Springfest celebration Saturday.

Students posted pictures to social media sites of one shirt that depicted an Indian drinking from a beer bong with the words “Siouxper drunk” and another depicting an Indian with the word “sobriety” above it, which started an online dispute over whether the shirts were appropriate and what the consequences should be for the people who wore them.

NDSU! Go Bison!
