Greek system is a good way to meet drunk and easy chicks.

The leadership of each of these racially specific "Greek" organization has the same concern. If we let in the "other", we may lose our power to completely control the chapter.

Look what happened to the White Conservative Power structure of the Alabama Democratic Party when the Voting Rights Act of 1965 opened the party to "minority voters". They lost the absolute control they had enjoyed for the previous 100 years so they jumped to the remaining White Conservative Power structure of the Alabama Republican party.

If the leaders of a "Greek" group loses control, where do they go? Their primary concern is their power structure and doing whatever it takes to maintain it as is. They have no place to "jump to".

They don't mind you running with a ball for them on Saturday, they just don't want to sit next to them the rest of the week.

I wonder how long it will be before the young ladies quoted in the stories will be asked to leave their organizations.

"In 2003, Tuscaloosa native Carla Ferguson became the first black woman to pledge a traditionally white Panhellenic sorority through formal recruitment. She accepted a bid to Gamma Phi Beta and remains the only black woman to have pledged through the formal recruitment process, over a decade later."

One black woman, ever. That's a damning statistic, and there is simply no way to candy coat it and make it anything but racial prejudice.

They put it back out there. Not sure what was happening earlier.

They did have their whole site (cw.ua.edu) down for a little bit.
