`Compton Cookout' Not Thrown By Frat Guys

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – An African American man who calls himself “America’s No. 1 Nigga” is behind the controversial “Compton Cookout.”

Nipsey Washington, aka “Jiggaboo Jones,” threw the party near UCSD that urged students to wear “ghetto” gear like stunner shades, gold chains, and weaves.

Though the media blames frat guys for the “racist” gathering, Jones says all the fuss is bogus.

He explains, “Our party was just a bunch of fools havin’ a good time. No one got hung.”

Jones has been throwing these parties – originally called “Nigga Nights” – for years. He says they’re a chance to drink and learn what it’s like to be black since “people are curious.”

He adds, “It’s the only time people can talk to hardcore gangsters and ask questions, like why they wear their hats sideways.”

The self-proclaimed “No. 1 Nigga” believes people are only bashing the bash because “being offended is chic.”

He plans to hold another party soon and hire a professional to paint blackface on guests.
