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.

I completely reject the premise of your questions. Would you agree that if not for HBCU's my parents, grandparents and great-grandparents wouldn't have had an opportunity to get a college education?

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


What would you have done here?

Use the power of the state to point a gun at these girls and force them to take the black girls into the club?


Shame these girls in some public way?


Whine with faux righteous indignation?


Really...what?



It is a private club. They can do as they choose. With time, things will likely change. But, there should be no repercussions for this. It is an internal, private argument

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.



Ole Miss has arguably the strongest greek system in the country, along with the University of Texas and maybe the University of Alabama. The fraternities at Ole Miss have been integrated for two decades. There was a black in Sigma Chi twenty years ago (Sigma Chi is one of the most elite fraternities on campus. There have also been black girls in Ole Miss sororities for years now.

It's unsettling that the University of Alabama is still so overtly racist in 2013.

Then you lack intellectual honesty. HBCU are little more today than degree mills that allow many blacks to claim degree possession when they would lag middling white hs kids on any standardized test.

I'm writing about today, I didn't say all HBCU's, and I would not presume to write about your relatives, I don't know a thing about them or you. You could be a CITWTT alter for all I know.

Why? It was irrelevant to the point responded to. Whatever black colleges may have been in the time of his grand parents has little to do with what they are now.

I defintiely don't think they should be forced to accept them just because they're black. But the paper leaked the name of the university employee/ sorority chapter adviser who cut the girl from Tri Delt because she is black. The need to leak the names of the Alpha Gam, Chi O, and Pi Phi alumnae who cut this girl SIMPLY BECAUSE OF THE COLOR OF HER SKIN. The sorority members have already admitted this is what happened. If these people want to be racist bigots in private then they should have no problem being racist bigots in public.

I would argue that things such as the topic of this thread prove that perhaps there is still a use for them.

And no, they really cannot do as they choose. Those sororities sit on state own land just like the greek houses at Ole Miss. The University of Alabama can shut them down any time they want to. Hell Ole Miss fraternities have been kicked off campus because of having swaps when a few a the members came dressed in blackface to a party.

The lack of response from the University of Alabama administration is appalling.

Interesting, could you expand your remarks what use do they serve in 2013 when there are no white colleges?

A stupid argument. Even a merely above average black student will have standard schools fricking each other to get the kid to attend. HBC are full of kids who have no business in college at all. During the time of his grandparents, smart black kids had limited choices. Such is not the case now.

The University of Alabama is obviously not concerned about being the most racist school in the SEC.

No I am pissed because if this had happened at Ole Miss everyone from NBC News to the NAACP would have already descended on Oxford.
