HBCU: Honestly, I don't know.

I can say right now that I wouldn't.

That's sad BLK.  I would LOVE to go to Howard.  But also coming from the other end, Black Greeks at HBCUs already feel like a lot of black folks at white schools have "sold out."  There's an HBCU only 10 minutes from my campus, and they don't want to work with the Black Greeks at my school on community service projects or forums.  It's more like...you do your thing OVER THERE, and we'll do ours OVER HERE.   :-\

In addition, there is also a gap between Black Greeks on white campuses and Black Greeks at HBCUs.  Although you'd expect them all to show you love, that's not the case all the time.   :-\

Well, there's a LOT of gaps.  I can't even begin to go into all of them.

That's just DISGUSTING...

Luckily, I don't know what they do about line names because I never see the frat boys wearing line shirts. 

There are a NUMBER of blacks in white fraternities and sororities on my campus.  (For example, Delta Zeta, with the colors pink and green, has a black girl in it.  I was disgusted when someone rolled up on me and had the nerve to ask if she was in MY sorority.)  All of the black folks look alike around here I guess. 

Now beyond that, there is always a division between Black Greeks and Blacks in White Greek Organizations.  How can you NOT see the issue with using "No Timbs or Fubu allowed?!?!?!"  While trying to bridge this gap, they lose a sense of who they are and assimilate.  And another thing, why do WHITE GREEKS ALWAYS want BLACK GREEKS to teach them a step?  I always felt like they considered us to be their little minstrel-show-entertainment.  It's hard to bridge a gap when...well...you work with white people who encounter such black males and females in their Greek organizations that THINK the way this young man did.  They assume that you're like this guy, Davie boy, and ole Kisha in Phi Mu or Tri Delta.  And all they know about YOUR organization is that you know how to step--which doesn't have anything to do with what you stand for and what your organization represents nationally.

Folks like Davie boy have issues beyond what sane minds can understand...

However, I do have issues with black folks who try to "bridge the gap" and lose a sense of self in the process.  Here's a little story...

Being at a predominately white institution, there are a handful of blacks who decide to join white fraternities and sororities (yeah, back to Greek Life).  As an advertisement one of the white frats put up a poster that had whatever little corny theme they were using and these words: "No Timbs or Fubu allowed."  Now, I was ENRAGED when I saw this garbage, using a number of "bad" words to express it.  And then the ONE BLACK GUY in the frat comes up to me and has the nerve to say that he told his "brothers" that is was ok.  He wanted to know what I had an issue with.  Then he tried to LECTURE me on how Black Greeks should try to WORK MORE with WHITE GREEKS on campus...

Now, what do you think about that?

As for Bamboozled... ???

I've seen it twice, and it just didn't do anything for me.  Frankly, I didn't understand.

OMG-Chapelle has lost his damn mind.  And some folks have the AUDACITY to compare him to Richard Pryor. 

And I saw that movie.  (Didn't like it at all.)
