Desegregating historically white sororities in 2013

The University of Alabama says four black women have accepted bids to historically white sororities, something the university's president is calling a first step toward removing barriers in the Greek system on campus. The school has been facing criticism ever since the student newspaper ran an article that said several sororities denied membership to black students, solely because of race. The panel shares examples of segregation in their lives.

    Don't you find it a bit hypocritical that people are complaining about white only soroities but not about the black only soroities? Or better yet the black only colleges? The road of segregation is a two way street. You can't complain about one thing but advertise the other. And I say black because I have friends that are offended being called African American. Their families aren't from Africa they are from Jamacia, Haiti, Columbia, England and other places as well. They would rather be called American or {Insert Nationality} American
