Greek excesses

If you are being attacked or raped in the Greek Row area, don’t bother screaming for help. There would be no way to distinguish your screams from all the others.

This is just one of the many disturbing realizations I’ve come to after 6 1/2 years of living next door to the White Student Union. Yes, the White Student Union is already in place and a nastier group of people you’ll not find.

If you’re a troglodyte, you probably need to be apprised of a few of the wretched excesses committed by America’s “brightest and best” who all probably come from “good families.” The good citizens of Greek Row constantly blast their music, drive their vehicles at dangerous speeds, leave litter all over, say the word “like” a minimum of once per sentence, etc.

In all fairness, I must point out what the greek community doesn’t do. (I apologize to persons of Greek extraction who have to suffer the hard times the word “Greek” has fallen upon.) Many members of “philanthropic” organizations which employ Greek lettering in their names never shovel their sidewalks, say “please” or “thank you” or acknowledge that non-greeks might be human beings.

What disadvantages are our white students suffering? They certainly don’t seem to be working very hard to overcome oppression. If the minuscule percentage of disadvantaged students admitted under Affirmative Action poses an academic threat to you, perhaps you should consider other academic alternatives.

Maybe the downtrodden white American male will stop being victimized when he realizes that guzzling beer and trying to get lucky is not the way to pull himself up by his bootstraps.
