    What part failed? SAE isn't going anywhere. Sure one racist chapter is getting shut down, which is very appropriate, but the fraternity is still the largest in the nation. Do you know what failed means? Are you even arguing a valid point anymore?

    You didn't even read it. Unreal.

    And if SAE promoted racism as you claim they do, they would have been promoting it 14 years ago. Remember, according to you, they've been promoting racism for decades....how about that incident in 1983? And 2002? All that evidence that shows they have a history of promoting racism?

    You can't even keep up with your own ridiculous claims.

    OK, I'm confused because this is what I quoted and responded to - "You said you're glad they're in the open. Why? The only thing that came out of them being in the open are death threats."

    But if we agree, that's fine. I'm just confused what you meant by that quote.

    Hatuey is just being extreme. Their argument is very odd, oh well. No skin off my back. Fraternities are great ways to network after college. I served with some SAE's. We're the biggest fraternity in the nation. There are bound to be many bad apples. No frat actually promotes racism (as a whole). That's just a bigoted way of thinking.

    So would most people. But what does it have to do with a claim that an entire organization promotes racism?

    Now move along, we've no time for your centrist views...

    I guess we were just nerdy or odd since we weren't so very cool and like totally in the popular crowd to join one. You gotta be in the cool crowd baby to understand da Greeks and we just cant understand.
