  1. I have to say I’m a proud member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. I am an Attorney and the Alphas do a tremendous amount of work in the community educating and empowering others. I’m not gay and not every member of a fraternity is gay. If a person chooses to be gay, straghit or bi-sexual that is their “personal” decision and not one mandated by the fraternity. Please do not make a blanket assertion about any organization. God Bless

    1. It is some gay shit Dee! I know several black men who are frat boys. Most of the frat boys I know are members of the Divine Nine. They had to do all of the disgusting things I mentioned. If anybody thinks I’m lying, watch the Omega Psi Phi (Q Dogs) bare butt video on Youtube.

  2. Breaking news, Ciara was involved in a car accident in Los Angeles. She is not injured. She is doing okay. She was making a left turn on Wilshire in the West LA neighborhood and struck another car.

  3. Black men here are the five most popular fraternity hazing rituals:

    1. The wood: Being spanked HARD with a thick wooden paddle

    2. Line or the line: Choose between snorting a line of cocaine (On camera) or having a group of frat brothers get in line to hit you in the face with a closed fist (On camera).

    3. Everclear: Contest among the pledges to see who can drink the most shots of 151 proof alcohol.

    4. Elephant walk: Frat pledges must strip butt naked and walk around in a circle holding each others penises.

    5. Branding: A large piece of iron with the frat symbol is held to a fire for a long period of time. The iron is branded onto the pledge’s skin; similar to slave owners branding their slaves. The Omega Psi Phi (Q-Dogs) fraternity is popular for performing this hazing ritual.

    Black men ask yourself, do you still want to join a fraternity?

    1. No way! Absolutely not! If you ask me, NBA IS FIXED, this frat hazing is a sick ritual! I’d rather sit on a cactus than join a fraternity

  4. Attention all black men who are thinking about joining a fraternity. Go to Youtube and watch the Omega Psi Phi bare butt video. Then watch the Omega Psi Phi branding video and the chain wearing video. If you still want to join a fraternity, that’s on you.

  5. Attention all black women who are thinking about joining a sorority. In 2002, two black women in Los Angeles attempted to join the sorority called Alpha Kappa Alpha (AKA). These black women endured a hazing ritual that involved them being tied up, blind folded and forced to walk to the beach. Both women drowned. No sorority member from AKA was arrested. The AKA sorority covered up the crime. Think about what happened to these two young black women before you decide to join a sorority. #Hazing #Humiliation #PossibleDeath
