and i think theyve given me a bigger advantage and opened my world up more than if i had gone to an hbcu.

of course i could have used the hbcu experience. all black people can. but that does not mean i'd trade it.

You can be with them on the streets, just don't wear letters and try and represent the org, and let the national org speak out on it through spokespersons.

...did Coretta receive the same memo in the 1960's?

Rosa was honorary so it's pretty ironic

In response to Reply # 24


  

          

...so its ironic that you make her honorary because she marched but then don't want the focus on your sorority when activism calls.

The main reason you market activists in your ranks and history and honor them with your letters should be why you encourage others to wear their letters proudly in the spirit of those who received letters for doing just that...

They are telling active AKA's (the people most likely to still be wearing letters) not to wear letters.

When I went to the Ferguson protest that started in Malcolm X park & ended up at Howard, I wore para on purpose to show solidarity & that if anyone, WE should be about this kinda stuff. I ran into a bunch of bruhs who wore their stuff too with the same mindset. You weren't tryna be neutral tryna get these orgs started so why do it now?

student groups.

Several student organizations gathered their troops and peacefully protested

I'm sure many of the Greek orgs gathered their members and marched. It wouldn't surprise me if they wore their paraphernalia

and this letter is from georgia

and they don't want to get their asses sued or their brand tarnished if a lone soldier decides to go off script.

now on the flip side, do have they made an official statement or announced their own course of action in light of the recent high profile police murders?

If they could back it up with an official March on behalf of their organization that would be better and not seem as bad.

93. "it's a bad look for the orgs"
In response to Reply # 89
Thu Dec-11-14 04:57 PM by SoWhat

  

          

to be so publicly concerned w/protecting their respective images and branding in a way that makes it seem the orgs care more about those issues than the issues that drive the protests. especially since the orgs are dedicated in part to community service and fostering leadership and sisterhood.

IMO it's a better look for the orgs to take a strong position in support of the protests or at least in support of the effort to correct the issues that drive the protests and to encourage members to express themselves peacefully. but really all the concern about violence feels outdated as there have been so many peaceful protests and concern about violence now feels like it's driven by ugly stereotypes about black ppl, generally.

considering the orgs are dedicated to promoting leadership they should encourage their members to lead by example - to protest peacefully wearing the letters.

fuck you.

115. "VH1 Abruptly Ends "Sorority Sisters" Amid Backlash"
In response to Reply # 114


  

          

You were saying...

http://www.cosmopolitan.com/entertainment/tv/news/a35307/sorority-sisters-vh1-ends-amid-backlash/?utm_content=buffer35c62&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer

Once sponsors pull out, it's a wrap

one caveat is that they are running remaining episodes of the season

to end the season

so it may return in some reincarnation

but it should be clear

that when people put pressure on the network and sponsors

they got results

it would be great if those same efforts and tactics were applied in other areas.
