    I don't claim the whole organization promotes racism but it makes you think that it just might be more than a coincidence that different chapters seem to embrace it.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    What it says. They and their families are now getting death threats. What other good thing came out of their names being made public?

    I guess I don't think Free Speech is good because it brings those who exercise their rights out in the open. I look at it as being good because it's far better than having no right to speak or think, and having the government tell us what to think or speak.

    For that matter, what do the people who lived in Alabama in 1856 have to do with it?[

    So you can't show us a single black fraternity with a history of doing anything similar to what SAE has done for years? Good. I didn't think your "everyone is racist" argument held any water anyways. Now move along, we've no time for your Mickey Mouse Clubs and centrist views.

    Hatuey claims the whole organization promotes racism. That's what he (the other poster) was posting about.

    There's a big difference in a few chapters having stupid young yahoos and a large group of adults promoting racism.

    And? What does them being founded in Alabama 150 years ago have to do with anything? And more importantly, what do the people in Alabama today have to do with anything?

    I thought it was funny how people who didn't join a fraternity or sorority at your school was characterized as nerdy, odd, or hockey player.

    Your lean says the same thing it did in your first post in here - "Slightly Conservative".

    Centrist?
