Just because there isn’t a Kappa Kappa Kappa chapter, doesn’t mean they didn’t want one! The entire Greek life system was born from white supremacist ideals and it’s about time colleges addressed this.

    Oh yeah. I can get into some fratboy burning. I’m a vet here. I crashed a frat rush week party, barefoot, and hammered on tequila. I gave them a broken bottle, then they tossed me.
    As my buddy flipped birds to The Ogre, I puked in their mailbox. My bud flipped up the flag and we wondered off into the Austin night.

    I was raised to believe that America was about equality and everyone being able to live the life they want to. So, it is very disheartening to know that America was never like that and has been led more by hatred than kindness or compassion.

    At first I thought: What have these ancient Greeks done again?

    But there are black fraternities and Sororities.
    They would let black folk in so we made our own and they’re waaaaay better.

    When you order a Greek Salad, and they refuse to add the black olives.

    I give up. I attempted to comment on this before, but I’ve deleted those comments.

    Why is this about a character set used? Why does this refer to a set of things completely indistinct from one another as much as it is?

    Should they have used Hebrew characters in order for you to not refer to them by the heritage of those characters?

    Who knew the ancient Greek were white Christians?

    1/5 stars, would not recommend.

    I wonder: the overrepresention in positions of power is because they joined a frat and got conections, or is it because most people that come from already wealthy/influential families tend to joing more ?

    It would be a good start to just simply put the Jim Crow era into the school books.
    Nationwide mandatorily.
    Just saying.
    Imagine the outcry if Germany _didn’t_ teach her school children about the Holocaust a half dozen times efen just before age fourteen.
