In today’s “That’s Not Shocking at All” news, an anonymous post, allegedly written by a member of a sorority at Southern Methodist University has gone viral.

The post was spotted on Greek Rant, and reads:

This is the south (hence SOUTHERN Methodist University), and a majority of girls are legacies with strong ties to the chapters they join (or will join), and tend to come from old money.

The reality is is that black pnms (potential new members) are often unqualified for recruitment (low GPA, bad grades, not involved on campus, know nothing about the houses) and are heavily unprepared (no letters of recommendations or letters of support) and generally come from a completely different background (impoverished lower class).

So going through recruitment is 10x tougher as a black woman, and you will have to work harder than other white, Asian, Hispanic or foreign women.

I know someone asked about it and this is a hot topic on YY (Yik Yak), but it’s the truth. people can deny and act like the houses are flooded with black girls, but they aren’t.

The post eventually went viral and sparked the hashtag #BlackAtSMU.

In a statement to Refinery29, a representative for the school denounced the post.

“The content of these anonymous posts on GreekRank is clearly abhorrent and would not represent standards and values at SMU.” The university also urged people to not promote the posts because they can “be easily amplified to incorrectly represent the opinions of many, even if there is no actual affiliation with the group they purport to represent nor truth in what they post.”

    Ultimately all black folks going to college whether it is an HBCU or PWI are going to get a piece of paper that gains them favor (or attempts to) in white society. Black folks across the board are bowing down in every conceivable way on a daily basis because they have no choice if they want to eat. But when folks tell them the hard facts Negroes jump up and want to debate the issue as if white society is going to provide for Negroes into infinity….. The reality is that the society, economy and culture of America was built for white progress and advancement as a people. And at no time has that changed even if some token Negroes do get jobs or buy cars or some other trivial meaningless so called accomplishment.

    Although I am very grateful for my parents generation in the 1960s and 1970s fighting for equal access to education, the more “revelations” and incidences make me almost wish for a real “separate but equal” education system.

    I didn’t join a sorority while in college (too independent), but I would have never even thought about joining anything other than a historically African-American sorority. I just don’t understand why some of us are so quick to discard our traditions and seek acceptance by any means necessary from White people. Makes me sad.

    I don’t understand why our people go to pwis proud doubl Alum if Howard University. And I really don’t see yhr point of being black and in a white sorority. Smh the D9 has such a strong and valuable history.. It’s not a social club that’s for sure

    This is true … I see white peole gravitate more towards black men than black women. I went to a “white high school” and it seems as if the black guys were way more accepted into the white circles than the black girls b/c we were seen as more attractive, cool, funny, athletic, and just trendy. The blacks girls were usually “outkast” and never invited to their parties and stuff and I didn’t really understand it until later.
