Ruth Marcus, a columnist for the Liberal Washington Post, blasted Yale Law School students who were upset by a party invitation they received from another student that contained racist and derogatory language.
Marcus mocked “grievance culture”, the student backlash to Trent Colbert’s second-year invitation to a Constitution Day Party.
“Sup NALSA, Hope you’re all still feeling social! Our very own, soon to become world-famous NALSA trap house will be dedicated on Friday, at 7:30. . . FedSoc will host a Constitution Day party. Planned attractions include Popeye’s chicken, basic-b–ch-American-themed snacks (like apple pie, etcThis is the address.) . . . Hope to see you all there,” Colbert’s invitation read, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

Colbert is also a member the Native American Law Students Association (NALSA). The invitation was sent out to them. He is also part of the conservataive Federalist Society.
Marcus explained that although the term “trap house” was described in the Urban Dictionary as being “originally used to describe a crack house in a shady neighborhood,” but “has since been abused by high school students who like to pretend they’re cool by drinking their mom’s beer together,” it still ignited a firestorm that spread to students outside NALSA.
Marcus stated that within minutes the invitation had been posted to the chat group for all 2Ls (second-year law students) by Aaron Sibarium from the Washington Free Beacon. Many claimed the invitation had racist connotations and encouraged students in blackface to attend.

“I guess celebrating whiteness wasn’t enough,” wrote the president of the Black Law Students Association on the chat. Marcus pointed out that Marcus also stated that the Federalist Society had “historically supported anti-Black rhetoric.”
Colbert was summoned within 12 hours to meet Ellen Cosgrove (associate law dean) and YaseenEldik, diversity director, who informed him that they have received many complaints of harassment and discrimination over his invitation.
Colbert secretly recorded Eldik’s conversation, which showed Eldik saying that Federalist Society “triggered” some students due to “oppressive political affiliations.

“Sorry, but if you’re triggered by the Federalist Society, you don’t belong on a law school campus,” Marcus wrote.
Colbert refused their requests to send an apology note out to students. But administrators eventually sent their own note denouncing the “pejorative, racist” language used in the invitation.
Colbert and administrators later spoke out to each other, threatening Colbert’s future as a student in law school. The school however denied that they intended to discipline Colbert.
In the midst of wider discussions about liberal intolerance of opposing views, The Free Beacon report has sparked a storm of critical opinion.
“But that’s not the biggest challenge at Yale or at other law school campuses. It’s how to deal with a grievance culture in which every slight, real or perceived, is greeted with outsize demands for disciplinary consequences. There is — or should be — a distinction between sophomoric provocation and outright racism,” Marcus wrote.

Marcus stated that these students are among the most bright and talented, but need to learn how to be better.
