Alabama sorority alumnae, advisers blocked black rushees.


Now this is real racism. Not some of that feaux shite used on the political trail today.

So? It's a private fricking organization.

People are sensitive fricks now you want to blame everyone else for their problems. Deal with it and move on.

This isn't "real racism", its a group of people who dot identify with the person, whether that be morals or the color of their skin.

This is a load of bs. If the members voted for her to join and alumni or advisors cut her bc of race... That's just bs. If alumni threatened to cut funding that's even worse.

Private organization can do whatever they want.

I ventured to the comments section unfortunately, but I did see one good point.

Until we get rid of black colleges, black sororities, black churches, etc., we'll always have racism.

The story to me is the changing of the guard that seems to be occurring.. Kudos to the young ladies for not allowing this to simply go unnoticed..

Based on this experience its a good thing we have black Greek orgs, lest this girl not have any options.

And who cares if it's a private org or not... Doesn't stop reasonable people from calling out ignorant arse racism when we see it

That's a load of BS

If the members don't like the Sorority they can quit and join a new one, I'm sure there would be a dog fight over them; if the alum don't like the chapter they can stop supporting it; if National doesn't like something in the process they can step in; if UA has a problem with some violation connected to rules about campus organizations they can step in. It is all about the process at UA.


I'm sure the girls went to UA for more than football, they are learning about life.

Ua is not private.

Right.

So the real issue is:

1) Does the organization get any public funding

2) EVen bigger. Do they own the property their house is on? Because that's what is getting taken first.


I also agreed with Carrollton and jcole. Those girls have options to change these practices if they want to try. And we, the public, get to tell them how stupid their alumni are.

I don't understand why any Black person would want to belong to a private club that felt that way about Black folks. I wonder if she knew these sororities were racist.

All the SEC greek fraternities are covertly racist. I've never talked to a member of one that has denied it.

And it seems to be more mob mentality racist too. None of them would admit to being racist as individuals, but say their fraternity would "go to shit" if they admitted blacks. IE every other fraternity would think theirs sucks, and then they would get worse members over time.

And I'm not one to cry racism at any news event, I've just heard this so many times.

This.


I have hope that in time, change will come organically.

I'd not force anyone

There's no such thing as Black colleges in the U.S. All of them are open people of any race, religion or ethnicity. Private institutions such as sororities and churches are a different matter, but I've never heard of a church that didn't allow non-Blacks.

Would you at least agree there are institutions that serve no educational purpose other than being a school of last resort for Blacks, or perhaps more perversely to keep Blacks from dragging down other institutions? Or to serve blacks special needs? Or that no white would go to if not for class pairing, school of last resort or some other device to create a modicum of interracial participation.

As an aside it appears the racial harmony brought about by Obama's foolishness on the international scene has passed and we can return to the question of race in America,

What a load of BS. You evidently have no idea how Southern sororities operate.
