This controversy surrounding the white sororities at University of Alabama got me to thinking about today's 'Question of the Day.'
The controversy deals with that allegations that white sororities on the campus of University of Alabama are denying entrance based on color after two overly qualified black prospects were denied entrance. What gave these allegations merit was the fact that the undergraduate members of the sororities came forward and admitted that the only reason the women were turned away was because of their race. Even the president of the University of Alabama agreed that the denials were based on race.
I need someone to explain to me why would you want to socialize with people who obviously don't want anything to do with you simply because the color of your skin. I realize it was the alumni of these organizations that allegedly denied these young women entry, but the fact they made such a denial is an indictment against the organizations as a whole. Why not seek membership to the prestigious black sororities whose networks are as far-reaching as that of their white counterparts?
So here is the 'Question of the Day':
Should Black Folks Try to Join Social Organizations that Don't Want Them?
Please tell me what you think.
