What do you think about some Alabama sororities still refusing to let black girls in?

I was little when Obama got selected and I thought racism was over. Since, y'know, he was black. I couldn't be more wrong.

"The problem, as many sorority members tell it, stems from powerful alumnae stuck on preserving the tradition of their all-white sororities — even if that means threatening to withhold donations and other financial assistance."

What sick motherfucker does that?

  • Hey it's their right to do so, just like it's any black womens right to deny a white girl entrance to theirs if they choose. It may not be fair but that's life.

    • Are you for real?

    • Yup, as I said it's not fair but it's their right to do it, unless the school says otherwise -shrugs- not much anyone besides the school can do to stop em.

  • They kind of mark themselves for what they are for everyone to see and the people who don't want to associate with racists can easily find superior associations to be a part of.

  • Its wrong for sure. I applied to join a black fraternity and was told I wouldn't even be considered as I was white. Racism is definitely not dead.

    A lot of adults thought this too which just means they were racist. They should have voted for him on his ability to lead a country not on the color of his skin. No racism is as strong as ever. Physical properties should have no effect on who a person votes for president. And it's disgusting that those sororities aren't allowing black women in but I don't know what decent girl would want to be in that kind of sorority now knowing the type of people in it.

  • Racism will never be over. There a lot of dumb people in the world and that won't change anytime soon.

    Just look at how many people are still religious.

    • And there's nothing wrong with being religious.. It's only wrong when you try to force other people to convert or follow your religious 'traditions'.

    • Show All
    • Oh and you're saying that atheists can't be stupid too?
      God, stupidity exists, everywhere, in every religion, in every country.

    • Being an atheist is not a remedy against stupidity, I agree.
