OT: Calling Out Bama's "Good Ole Gal" Sororities
I was hesitant to post this for fear of being accused of spawning Bama hate, but I couldn't get it off my mind. In this day and age and with what is going on in Birmingham and Alabama this year its kinda ridiculous. Kudos to the undergrads and others for calling 'em out for it...

I had a link to the al.com article in the B&G section, but I suspect the article coming from the students themselves is even better.

Amazing how the students feel one way, yet the machine directs them another way.

The good thing is that, much like a lot of political issues in the wider political world, the students who are pushing back against this will be the alumni in a few years and actual change has a real chance to take place

Why any black student, including athletes, would step on the UAT campus is beyond me.

I've always wondered the same thing..

I guess so many people, white and black, worship football success so highly that they turn a blind eye to the history of racism at that school.

A lot of the Greek fraternities and sororities are awful about crap like this here at UA. I've heard from friends that are in frats that they tell their "recruiters" not to recruit African-Americans. Strangely, the same for African-American fraternities telling their recruiters not to recruit white people. The whole thing is messed up. I have never cared to be a part of the Greek system, because I think it's dumb. Don't even get me started on hazing stories I have heard... But I do have a few friends that claim they like being a part of it.

It had nothing to do with the "machine" and everything to do with the crazy, controlling alums. Having 3 daughters go through rush at UA, the stories I could tell.

It's sad when parents stand in the way of their children's progress.
