Here’s That Alabama Sorority Recruitment Video That’s Making Headlines
Fraternities and sororities, generally, are homogenous collections of like-minded people. That's kind of why clubs exist in the first place: to get people together who are into the same shit, right? Sports, video games, weed, movies -- whatever the hell it is, on-campus Greek life exists primarily as a way to unite similar people.
When you're talking about a sorority at the University of Alabama, however, the criteria for "shared interest" gets a bit sticky. Judging by the school's Alpha Phi chapter's recruitment video -- which has since been taken down -- those uniting factors would extend to include being a skinny, attractive white girl.
The video below -- albeit not explicitly racial -- makes it pretty damn clear what kind of people Alpha Phi admits into their cult of mid-century feminine clichés.
"Of the total number of women who accepted bids, 214 were minorities, a number that increased by nearly 13 percent," the University said in a statement released over the weekend. "And, the number of African American students who received bids increased by 19 percent, to 25."
Hmm, an increase of 19-percent, eh? That's pretty good, but we've got a follow-up question (if you don't mind). How many African-American girls have been accepted by this Alpha Phi chapter? Like, historically. Because if we're to glean anything from their recruitment pitch, there are exactly zero currently in their ranks, and something tells us that's not a "new thing."
America, folks. Have a look...
