Truth be known, even though it was one of my Chapters, this goes on all across the Greek System, I am getting damn tired of all this PC Ness Bull Crap!

Golly gee whiz, a Sorority has a South of The Border where they wear Sombreros. A very large Fraternity has a Has their Old South Ball yearly but that is racist. It is remembering their heritage from whence they were founded!

What if a Group had a party "Celebratory We Are The World" and dressed in the costumes and coloring of the people?

If there is nothing malicious about it then the hell with THE DO RIGHTEOUS butt wipes out there who fell they know it all!

So, to be truthful, some of them can kiss my butt! They make me want to PUKE!

For real, one of the Lambda Chis literally had blackface. That's not defendable at all.

+1 to Sororitysock and GoldBows.

Earp, did you even read the entire article? Based on what you posted, it's obvious you didn't comprehend what was written.

Sigh.

Regardless, you need to check your privilege. STAT.

Seriously? So sorry mean people have taken the fun out of wearing black face, Confederate uniforms, and flying the rebel flag.

Maybe you should take a trip to Montgomery so you can understand why these things ARE malicious. In just under 2 weeks The National Memorial for Peace and Justice and The Legacy Museum: From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration are opening. Maybe you’ll learn something you (obviously) have yet to pick up.

OMG, first off, YES, I did read the whole article! I was born before most of you were and have been around a hell of a lot longer than anybody on this site.

The first Black that I met was in 1960, my first year of college. We became good friends. When I went to my second college I met a lot more Blacks and became friends with many of them. Color was never my thing, it was how people acted and how I was treated, period.

I went on the K C Ks. PD in 1969 during the height of the riots. Officers both Black AND WHITE were not going for any of this B S, they were worried about protecting the people of our city!

When I got a Liquor store, I was the first to hire a Black in Kansas and Mo.

And now, I sit here awed by your indignant righteousness over being PC! What Utopia did you grow up in? What part of life did you grow up in?

It seems in your world (Inclusive for all) you are above and beyond what real life really is!

I enjoy how you call me Racist when none of you have been around long enough to have lived it!

At this point, I should say something nasty, but, I will not! Oh, other than get over yourselves!

GOD, These People are doing your good work, just ask them!
