On American college campuses caught up in the current hysteria of rape fears and overhyped racism, some fraternities are more equal than others.
And nothing proves that more than a decision by North Carolina State University, where the school has temporarily banned all alcohol at fraternity parties on campus – EXCEPT the school’s five black fraternities, according to the Daily Caller.
The latest episode of blatant racism on the part of overwhelmingly liberal college administrators comes after a woman claimed she’d been sexually assaulted at a party at the school’s Alpha Tau Omega chapter in early March. That incident is still under investigation, but it was followed last week by the discovery of a notebook believed to belong to a fraternity pledge at a restaurant near the campus.
It contained sexually explicit – if entirely juvenile – mottos, as well as clearly racist comments.
“If she’s hot enough, she doesn’t need a pulse,” one said, according to WRAL, the CBS affiliate in Raleigh. “That tree is so perfect for lynching,” another said.
Some of the notes were signed with names identified as belonging to fraternity brothers, and the fraternity involved – Pi Kappa Phi – placed itself on indefinite suspension, meaning it was allowed to engage in philanthropic activity, but party time was over.
That’s a little extreme for some adolescent scrawlings in a notebook, but fair enough. A fraternity with brothers who think “If she’s old enough to pee, she’s old enough to me” is witty probably shouldn’t be on a college campus anyway.
But it’s where the university went next that’s part of the problem: Banning alcohol at all fraternities, ones where idiot pledge books haven’t been turning up in restaurant, would have been bad enough, but at least it would have had some kind of idiot, blanket justice to it.
Limiting a ban on alcohol to parties hosted only by predominantly white organizations while leaving predominantly black groups explicitly out of the collective punishment is beyond reason to normal people. (Actually, it’s not beyond the reason of cowardly college administrators, but for normal people it is.)
According to the Daily Caller, the school justifies the ban on alcohol only for mainly white fraternity parties because only to the white fraternities that are part of the school’s Interfraternity Council, the fraternity umbrella group that ostensibly came up with the idea. It’s pure coincidence, then, that it leaves out the school’s black fraternities, since they’re part of another umbrella group, the National Pan-Hellenic Council.
The irony, of course, is the only reason there is such a thing as a National Pan-Hellenic Council at all is because of the days of segregation, when the nation’s black colleges established fraternities with a separate governing structure from white frats that wouldn’t accept them.
Now, fraternities that are remnants of the shameful “separate but equal” days of American history are deliberately getting special treatment from a college that has an entire, well-staffed office devoted to “Institutional Equity and Diversity.”(Find the white guy in the photo.)
The frats weren’t created equal, thanks to an accident of history. They’re not treated equally now – by progressive design.
And libs call that progress.
Twitter, as usual, was on the case.
@larryelder Unfair is the new fair. Leave it to the liberals to scream racism while being racists. Call em out by name.
