Dennis Barletta: Photo in bad taste

Photo in bad taste

“Pounding pavement, doughnuts” (Feb. 10) – ethnic themes? It’s politically incorrect for a fraternity to have an ethnic theme party but perfectly acceptable for ethnically stereotyped participants in the doughnut run?

Why would The N&O choose to use this photo to highlight this event?
