Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

Racism in Greek Life

with 2 comments

I read an article that described racism in Greek life. In Indiana, a sorority was kicked off campus for its behavior including promiscuous videos on you tube, poor grades, and hazing. The sorority went on a “purge” to get rid of the girls who were causing all these problems. They kicked out 22 of its 34 members. They kicked out the only black member and the two only Asians, also anyone who was overweight and had dark hair. I find this to be extremely shocking that people who calls each other “sisters” would treat these women with such disrespect. I find this to be outright racism against minorities and overweight dark haired people. I guess these girls only think thin, blonde, white people are beautiful or “good enough” to be in their chapter.

  1. I think that it is crazy that the sorority was able to kick all of those girls out of their sorority without a valid reason. You are right, there is no way that these girls can consider themselves to be sisters if that is how they treat each other.

  2. Yea, that sucks. But this isn’t that surprising. If you look around our campus you will see that most of our sororities don’t have that many blacks or other minorities in them. Its sad that people can be that superficial and shallow.
