Sweetheart,

It's the incorporation that has made the difference--that's the way I see it. Should it matter who's on 1st? I think it is more important that who was everlasting for over 100 years of service to be "first of all"...

I think many gentlefolks of GC have fully answered your question without personal attacks. Moreover, there is a search function and it can be your friend. If you really want to have a discussion like this, please take it to PM? In fact I would be happy to give you a personal telephone number of a certain member who would love to answer all your questions about Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and then some...

I hope this thread gets locked soon.

Senusret,

He has 5 posts and they're all on this forum in this thread. He's a nobody with an axe to grind.

Hello elusiveflip.

Many times, people who were rejected for membership come on GC to try to dog greek orgs--specifically the one that rejected them; and when their intent is discovered, they get dogged by the members. It happens so often that sometimes people with good intent get caught up in the flames. For this reality, I apologize to you if yours is a noble intent.

I think your question was answered by the members, howbeit not in the tone you expected. I also forward the idea that if you and I lived on A street and started a gang that nobody wanted to join and it lasted only three months--which was before we could even get our rep off, and another gang started up on the same street and they took care of bitniss and are still doin' it, can we honestly say we were the first on that street? You're only as good as your last performance.

^ Thanks for the tactful response. Im not, nor will I ever be any Greek organizations reject. No axes to grind, nothing. Just a dude who read a book and had a follow-up question.

As for the gang comparison, it's the same as having an older brother that lived into his adolescent years and died when you were young. His death doesn't mean he never existed. You may be the oldest sibling NOW and the first to lead a full life, but you're not the first child period. To say you are is to deny that first sibling it's very existence.

Why is it that the people who never aspire to be apart of any BGLO or who have never been rejectedů do so much research on our organizations ?

No my Greek Brother..... he didn't say he's not aspiring, he said he'll never be a reject.

Why is it that the people who never aspire to be apart of any BGLO or who have never been rejected… do so much research on our organizations ?

If I may-

Here at ASU we have a Greek 101 class, facilitated by members of each of the 5 councils (and for those of you that aren't caught up with the 5, its NPHC, IFC, Pan-hel, NALFO, and MGC) with the mission to educate people on the different cultures that encompass the Greek system.

I was lucky enough to facilitate that class, and learn a lot about what other councils do. Their public traditions, what it means to step and stroll, and also learned about alot of the public history (particularly about APhiA, AKA, ODPhi, and KDChi (the latter 2 are NALFO orgs))

I found it incredibly interesting to learn about what people thought, how chapters were started, where, by whom, and what the reasoning was behind it. Being a member of a Greek org myself, I know why we were founded, I know by whom, what we stand for, as well as almost everything that there is to be known... But it's always intrigued me to learn about others.

So questions that are being asked, if all intent is pure, are nothing more than the seeking of knowledge to make people become less ignorant.

Shrug, just my two cents.

-JJ


editors note: I mean no disrespect in my response, so please don't take it that way.
