How can any black athlete go to Bammer?

How can any black athlete go to Bammer? 


If I were Butch, I'd have no problem showing this video (linked below)  to anyone considering Bammer.  

Now, I know black guys from Alabama have to go to Bammer or they get their house torched.  Or Auburn.  But how any black athlete outside the state could go to Bammer is hard to comprehend.

What are the required qualifications to become a member of any Greek society at any major school?

Tennessee is no different. KKK influence, MLK killed here, and on and on. It's called the south

Racism is no worse in Alabama than in a Tennessee or any of the other southeast states. Referring to this YouTube film or references to the confederate flag at ole miss are pretty hypocritical if tou are in any of the other sec states.

Racism is not a SEC state problem.  Its a human problem.  Its a perceived southern only problem due to a war fought about 150 years ago here in America.  Racism was alive well before the Civil War and it will be a problem for a long time after until we change ourselves.

I beg to differ.  It's not just a problem of the South.  It's just as pervasive, if not more so, in the North.  Racism is a reality that is promoted by the ignorant.  It can't be legislated away.  And, it's not just white people.  There are probably proportionately just as many black racists as white racists.

Too many people have bought into the hype about the South being more racist than the rest of the country.  That is hogwash.  The racism door swings both ways, and it is no worse in the South.

Have a feeling this thread is heading to A51.

Obviously Mallet org has an agenda. I think racism is overused term in this day and age. It is not 1963. Truth is most people hang out with people like themselves, with common likes, dislikes, or culture. Just the way it is.

Some of the biggest rednecks live in the suburbs of Columbus Ohio and in Michigan. People who think the South is racist have obviously never traveled much.

Racism and prejudice will always exist to a certain extent everywhere.  Not just across the states, but world wide.  It's just a fact of life and there is nothing that can be done about it....and it works in all different directions.

Agree.

And I also agree that racism is not just a southern phenomenon.  For example, I refer you to Mr. Barrack Obama and his lovely wife, Michelle and their attorney general Mr. Eric Holder as racists.  In congress we have the black congressional caucus, as another example.  Racist?  You betcha.

I assume there are no whites in the black frats at UT, and only a few blacks in the traditional old frats. 

I do not consider that racist, but on the surface, it seems like it.  It is like rocket said.

My observation....Tennesseans are Different 


Of course I am using my experiences....I am from NJ and live in NJ...I only went to UT but I visit often and own a business in Knoxville having met and employed many people.

The people I know are trusting and accepting of differences.  It is easy to tell and I don't know why.  Perhaps it is the mountain or country influence that separates them from the intolerance of the deep south.  I know I am generalizing but I never take the opinions and feelings of my Tennessee friends lightly.

Excellent points all around.  I'm sure there are no black sororities at the new sorority complex that is an embarrassment to our university.  You can't tell me no tax money went toward that complex.  What a joke.  

BTW, something no one has mentioned is, can you believe how slutty college women are these days?  Someday some kid will be looking at old videos on You Tube and will say, "Mom, is that you twerking and grinding against that guy?"

aw, my roommate for a couple of years at UT was a black guy, member of Phi Beta Sigma.  He did tell me that they  had one white guy in the frat.

Now THIS is my kinda thread! 


Black athletes are going to have a hard time finding a school located in a state where there are no racists.    pirate

Why would anybody black or white 


want to go to that cesspool of a state. If you are from out of state unless Mississippi or La why go to Alabama. If you live in Alabama then your first recruiting visit  out of state with the exception of the 2 above should show you if you have an opportunity to get the hell out, take it!
