Sorority pushed to delete recruitment video after public raged they were too white and too blond

A University of Alabama sorority video featuring scores of beautiful young women enjoying their college experience was removed from social media after getting lambasted by scolds as “worse for women than Donald Trump.”

In part, because the women were virtually all white. And blond … oh, so blond.

In an op-ed for AL.com, magazine editor A.L. Bailey said the Alpha Phi  sorority’s video failed to uphold the high standards of furrow-browed American feminists, and was racist to boot.

“It’s a parade of white girls and blonde hair dye, coordinated clothing, bikinis and daisy dukes, glitter and kisses, bouncing bodies, euphoric hand-holding and hugging, gratuitous booty shots, and matching aviator sunglasses,” she wrote.

But enough with the pleasantries, Bailey then offered more pointed criticism of the video.

“It’s all so racially and aesthetically homogeneous and forced, so hyper-feminine, so reductive and objectifying, so Stepford Wives: College Edition,” she added. “It’s all so … unempowering.”

To support her point, she pointed to Fox News host Megyn Kelly calling out Trump at the Republican presidential primary debate for “dismissing women with misogynous insults.”

But to be fair, the students were not all blonde. Roll Tide.

The original video has been removed from YouTube, but this is a version of it:
