You are killing me many times over in this thread. Where should I send the bill for the coffin?

I may have been in a cave for the last few years, but I could have sworn that this organization used to promote itself rather heavily as a South Asian fraternity. No offense intended in case anyone gets any ideas about my post. I had recently been talking about this new image and then just saw 33girl's old post.
Hmm this IS interesting.... only because I do remember them promoting themselves as a SW Asian fraternity when they were trying to get established at my school a few years ago. Now their website mentions nothing of it.

They were founded as a latina org, they service the latino community. 1 black girl, 100 black girls, or a diverse chapter does not change that fact.

ignorance is bliss, but I can't blame you. I would love to tell you a little more about our history, but fortunately (or unfortunately) that is only privy to our members. but, I guess the Universal Woman has always been and is now exclusively a latina. sorry, I did not get that memo.

To clarify (you are only half correct):

"Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority, Inc. was established in 1975 as the FIRST sorority to cater to the needs of Latinas.

Since then, Lambda Theta Alpha has grown to over 90 chapters across the United States and Puerto Rico. We are an organization that strives to promote academic excellence, work hard for our community and for the advancement of Latinas and the Universal Woman."

so yes, we were founded as a latin org, but to say we only service the latino community is quite limited.

1. I never claimed that serving the latina community was lta's only purpose but that it was a primary purpose.
2. I'm working with info provided by your sorors so if you have a problem with the info I provided then you might wanna take it up with them.

I'd advise you to go back to posts where I as well as other people have discussed the differences between an organization with multicultural membership and an organization that is multicultural in purpose.

And don't use "private" history to try and make a point. If it can't be referenced publicly, it shouldn't be used to butress an argument.

And for nothing. The opinion of her organization's purpose won't change because one member shows up on GC.

I have a problem with what you said in the BOLDED words. Maybe it is being picky about how things are worded, but after reading what you wrote, I personally perceived it as the fact that you are limiting my sorority to only be servicing the latino community, and when you use the word "PERIOD" that means THE END. no ands, ifs, or buts. A lot of what we do does center around trying to inform the general community that will promote their knowledge and understanding of the latino community, but a lot of it is also to uplift the universal woman, not just latinas.

Yes I read some of that stuff about being multicultural, but I am not arguing that point. I am arguing the point that you are limiting my sorority by what you specifically wrote in the words I bolded.

The only reason an LTA can run wild on this board is because there are no Pi Chis or SLUs to keep her in her place.

Do you have problem with it because you are a non latina in a latina org? Again I'm going by info your own sorors provided me. So if there are discrepencies in house handle that in house.
Until the history and mission of your org changes not to mention the SELF prescribed title of being a latina sorority then Lta is a latina org.

Take head of what I said earlier about looking beyond your chapter and your region when seeking to define a trend. And do note that when I mean something as an exclusive I will say ONLY.

Good Day

I crossed in a different region I am currently active in, and have met with many sisters across the nation. yes, I am non latina, but that does not mean I don't understand that LTA is a latin organization, nor do I ever want Latin to be dropped from our name. I already said I have no qualms about that why are you trying to use it as an argument? I just said that what you specifically wrote came across as rather limiting to me, and I wanted to clarify that we do a lot of things geared towards the universal woman, not just the latin community.

^^^ Is there a fundamental difference between Latin and Latino? I really don't know, so I'm just curious.
