My acceptance to J&J was based upon status... dad was a VP for a major airline and moms wrote computer programs used by the military for Grumman Aerospace. Fact is, there was very few dark folks (in that chapter) and other Jack and Jillians reminded me that I was dark EVERYDAY!
Yes, it was based on status, but my point was that the hue of your skin was not a disqualifying attribute or you would not have gotten in even based on status. It also seems, that you were critized for being too Black while playing Lacrosse... I feel for you sound like you had a messed up chapter. Fortunatly that was not my experience. I had enough problems with white kids.
