There is no need to explain yourself, your history, or the struggle of your people to the willingly ignorant. If that person had wanted to be informed, or educated he would have sought the knowledge or asked about the history of black greeks. Yet he did not, and sought attention, and wanted to be noticed, and have 15 minutes of internet attention. Its much more progressive to leave those people in the dark.
In the field of education, we call it a teachable moment. It’s not just about educating the person who asked the question, but possibly educating others who may be unaware as well.
“Like most reservation kids we wound up with our grandparents. We were lucky. Most Indian children are placed in foster homes. This happens even in some cases where parents or grandparents are willing and able to take care of them, but where their social workers say their homes are substandard, or where there are outhouses instead of flush toilets, or where the family is simply “Too poor.” A flush toilet to a white social worker is more important than a good grandmother.”—Mary Crow Dog (via strugglingtobeheard)
Everything I'm sure is falling upon deaf ears.. You really believe that shit, which is baffling. Greeks haven't accomplished shit.. Which is why America is okay with them. They're no threat. Keep hollern and hooting you sambo. Peace. Goofball
Why would social and service organizations pose a threat? Not every organization exists to pose a threat to structural inequality yet that doesn’t mean they are a bad thing. BGLOs and other non profits are doing great things, especially with the youth in combatting the cradle to prison pipleline.
BGLOs never claimed to be a radical organization or an enemy of the state, you would need a revolutionary org for that sorta like the Black Panther Party which was co founded by a member of…Phi Beta Sigma.
