    Yale sophomore Neema Githere says she was denied entry to a Sigma Alpha Epsilon party because a frat member said they were “looking for white girls” only.


    "A group of girls came up who were predominantly black and Hispanic," Petros-Gouin
    told the Washington Post. "He held his hand up to their faces and said, 'No, we're only looking for white girls.' … He pulled a blond girl up from the bottom of the stairs—over some people—pushed her inside and said, 'We are looking for white girls only, white girls only.' No brothers corrected him or said anything."

    What are you emphasizing by coloring the last statement in red?

    Ahh, I understand now. I could not bring up the site at first, seems I'm having a lot of packet loss.

    I see our ignorant brothers are members of a fraternity known for being racist in other chapters. Self-hatred is a hell of a mental condition, that crosses all social-economic backgrounds within our community.

    So true, but I give the young ladies in this instance the benefit of the doubt. I know a lot of college students only look at the news for the weather forecast. Seeing males of color in that fraternity could easily give the uninformed wrong impressions about what the organization is about.

    That is why I was asking at first, but once I was able to read the actual story I understood why she highlighted the last statement.

    Students accuse Yale SAE fraternity brother of saying ‘white girls only’ at party door



    ........It was uncomfortable, he said, in part because that brother is African American and others working the door at the time are Portuguese and Costa Rican; he described the chapter as racially diverse. He said some in Yale’s black community have called black SAE members “Uncle Tom” on Monday, making them feel like they are being forced to choose between siding with the fraternity or others of their race.

    “It has become incredibly hostile,” he said.

    He and another student who attended the party said the crowd inside was representative of the student body at Yale.

    No, I wouldn't have attended. But, I would guess the sophomore sistas were trying to attend the event because they saw broths at the door.

    Moral of the story, if you're not invited, don't invite yourself, and then be mad when it doesn't work out. Throw your own party and invite who you want dont invite those you don't want and move on.
