Reply to "White Sorority Wins 'Sprite Step-Off Challenge'"

Yeah, it is, Yemaya!  But ... looking at it realistically, I think we are dealing with a horse long-gone out of the barn .. and trying to shut the door at this point will isn't going to us any good! 

The truth is ... (and I know you probably won't like hearing this )  WE need to do (and to have done) a better job of protecting those things and entities and institution that are important to us.  It is US not supporting our HBCUs for OUR children that has lead to them recruiting (and giving full-ride scholarships to) White students to bring in money just to keep their doors open!

WE should have better control of our own treasures ... and, not that I'm necessarily blaming us for not doing so (because I believe there are 'extenuating circumstances' when it comes to such things) ... still, I believe that we have to look at the reality and take responsibility for our own actions (or the lack thereof) when dealing with our situation as it is right now!

I think you're right that our "cultural business" is in jeopardy .. and really, to say it's under attack I don't think is being too dramatic!  But ... where are our defenses?  Do we have any?   

If we aren't willing (or able) to put people back in their place after they've 'crossed a line' ... should we really be surprised when they make the choice to step all over it?
