Racist Sororities at the University of Alabama

    Black people need to make their own shit and stop trying to fuck with other
    people, ESPECIALLY White people.

    I doubt that the politically correct dopes who made this video would decry
    the Nation of Islam, loosely called Black Muslims–a large segregationist
    organization that not only excludes Caucasians but characterizes them as
    “white devils.” A lot of noise is made about a small group of schoolgirls,
    and little if anything is said about truly monumental bigotry. No double
    standard?!

    In the internets segregation is common sense.

    Man, fuck the South.

    I know thats a rather harsh generalization, but fuck it – I cant say I’ve
    ever met a person from that South-Eastern US that wasn’t largely a cunt,
    regardless of ethnicity/race or gender.

    If I avoid a neighborhood because I don’t want to be robbed, it’s not
    because I’m racist it’s because I’m most likely to be robbed in a black
    hood when I’m white. Stats back me up 100% so, maybe if blacks don’t want
    to be ‘discriminated’ against they should stop with the racist double
    standards.

    Racism is wrong. For years, I tried to understand and treat everyone
    equally and with respect. I stood up against wrongs I saw and heard. That
    said, I hear, see, feel, experience, and endure racism by blacks towards me
    and other white people all of the time. I no longer understand nor let it
    go. I do not care anymore. I give what I get. All white people should stand
    up for themselves and not take any shit off of any black person from now
    on. Give what you get.

    While I totally agree with the elimination of racism in Greek Life, be
    careful not to accidentally force reverse racism, such as the case with the
    original stipulations of Affirmative Action. Anyways, Roll Tide and all
    that jazz. Good luck Mallet Society, looking forward to hearing about your
    progress.

    That’s a shame. Thing is, racism works every which way and as long as one
    keeps it up they all will. Couldn’t even begin to count the amount of times
    I’ve been referred to as a cracker, honkey, white-bread, snowball, etc.
    over XBox Live without ever dropping an indication of what race I belong
    to. Basically, the people who do that just categorize everyone as whatever
    they have an avid dislike for or perceive as the most offensive terms for
    degradation that come to mind– which is typically racially motivated.

    Personally, I believe it’s one part a refusal to willingly change and lay
    the past to rest in lieu of not wanting to relinquish notions and
    lifestyles of familiarity and one part “Divide & Conquer.” The latter is
    particularly for politicians and corporations.

    if you ever went to school, prison, or lived in a neighborhood, you realize
    that segregation happens naturally so their is no reason to govern it…

    The only racism I support is racism against stupidity, hate and
    segregation. I know it doesn’t have anything to do with race but with heart
    and soul it does. I use the term to go against those negative things. With
    lack of love will breed bad things and these bad things are which we should
    be against. There is hate all around us, let’s kill it and breed nothing
    but love.

    Pretty ironic considering their world class football team is probably 70%
    black. I’m not sure why anybody would find anything depicted here
    surprising? It’s freaking Alabama the embodiment of intolerance, hate, and
    ignorance. It’s a shame that any black man would even sellout and play for
    that freaking team considering the history of that institution.

    The sad truth is in many ways things haven’t changed. You’re welcome if
    you play sports or the children of stars. Not so much if you’re not.
    White Americans in general distrust and dislike Blacks. Not hate or want
    to kill mind you but they’d rather not be around them.

    News flash–Greek life is by nature exclusionary, and excludes many white
    folks. The Greek system should be abolished, but not because they do not
    cow-tow to the multi-culti musketeers.

    The University of Alabama is a mickey mouse institution. The only good
    thing they have going on is their football team. It does not take much
    gray matter to get into such a sub par university.

    I’m not saying racism is intelligent at all, but it’s not exclusively
    american. you can find racism in all corners of the earth. doesn’t matter
    what race you are, there’s a different race that thinks less of you for it.
    it’s been around since the beginning of man. once you realize that humans
    are predisposed to this behavior you’ll realize how simple minded we really
    are.

    You have to find the right balance between work and going out. Sure I’m
    going to have fun, but I’m also going to get a good degree. Not sure if I
    should go Notts or Exeter

    I still have two years to go until i finish school and I’m thinking about
    uni already and I’m quite scared to leave school because i just lack
    confidence i mean i can’t talk to anyone new because I’m scared I’ll say
    something stupid. This video helped me a lot 🙂

    Yeah it costs 30+ grand. It’s not there to have a toss, have fun work hard
    this determines the rest of your life in most cases. Main focus should be
    working hard not if you can go through a ton of alcohol!

    That was a really helpful video, I’ve been debating for ages whether I
    should go to Uni, I think I have come to the decision that I will! I guess
    I’m quite like you not the most confident person but love to party and have
    a good time! I hope I just don’t find it too hard to settle in! Good advice
    though thanks 🙂

    i really struggled with it! take lots of things with you that remind you of
    home, like photos and trinkets and stuff to make your room really homely 🙂
    make sure you keep in lots of contact with people at home, and don’t deny
    yourself if you fancy a weekend back there. but try not to spend too much
    time there and exclude yourself from uni stuff 🙂 hope you’re okay!

    There are some great blogs on whatuni including mine, ‘The importance of
    research’. Do your research! I know people that have a First Class degree
    (from a top 10 uni), a PHD in maths and they cannot get a job in finance.

    I’m guessing you just completed your final year? I think it’s disgusting
    that the education system is letting people down so much. Did you not take
    part in the taster sessions that were launched 5 years ago? Did you
    complete the questionnaire which suggests occupations and courses that
    would be suitable? My blog is on whatuni ‘The importance of research’ if
    you want to read it. Nice to see careers advisors getting better training
    now, but that’s only because student loans have been written off

    You’re so right, it’s crazy money. But looking at the big picture, the
    amount you’ll be owing by the end is so huge that another few grand won’t
    make a MASSIVE difference in all honesty. And if it means you’ll be a lot
    happier, than it’s probably worth it 🙂
