The First Amendment on college campus I don’t think is that developed in our Courts. I don’t think a State government can make black face illegal, so I’m not positive a State run college can either.

It wouldn’t survive strict scrutiny at least.

In the few 1st Amendment cases dealing with speech that is offensive to minority groups the SCOTUS has been pretty consistened in not saying the government has an interest in protecting people from feeling discriminated against.

Possible bad reportage by CNN. HuffPo has a quote from Gallogly stating that
“They decided to withdraw on their own under the circumstances,”

Yes there would be the withdrawal was forced by the school. The case on point is Iota XI Chapter of Sigma Chi vs George Mason out of the 4th Circuit. The fraternity held an ugly women contest where they dressed up like woman, including one as mammy in blackface.
