We put up with the nonsense in black colleges for the same reasons we put up with black crime in our communities. It’s not rocket science. Our values have changed dramatically in the last thirty to fifty years. We don’t respect an education and we don’t respect each other. We have abandoned marriage, monogamy and religion. Hard work, discipline and sacrifice left our race years ago. Now it’s entitlements, handouts and demands without justifying whether or not those demands are earned or deserving.
College has become a social institution rather than an educational institution. In effect our black colleges are very similar to the nation’s prisons. People go in and come out with an enhanced derogatory skill set. Both of those institutions accelerate the downward cycle of destruction permeating our race.
This is so obvious that to ask the questions By Dr, Boyce is just a rhetorical exercise.
This is something I have to strongly consider for my son…and that is to instruct him not to get caught up when he goes to college. All of the nonsense doesn’t matter and what matters are your grades. There was this very smart young girl in church that I watched grow up and become a very smart, successful college student and now a dental student. I asked her if she pledged any sororities and she told me…no I’m not into that. And that is the attitude I want my son to have and that is to stay focus on his grades and his career.
this s**t should be ban on ALL campases across america,when the next student dies,someone should be charged with murder.
I am a recent graduate of an HBCU, yes, there are sororities and fraternaties, however at the institution I attended hazing was almost none existent. Each greek organization was assigned an advisor(s) from the faculty of the institution. They were present at EVERY event, EVERY study sessions, EVERYTHING!!!!!! If we did which was not often, we were not on the campus or for that matter anywhere near th school. We are aware that organizations greek & non-greek do NOT promote such behavior, the students are the promoters. A solution to this issue is to eliminate undergraduate intake of sororities and fraternaties. Graduate chapters are consists of mature, educated, settles individuals. Who don’t need the “pomp and circumstances” of being a member a an organization.
