University of Washington students have launched a “Check Your Privilege Party” scheduled to go down on Saturday, May 30th at 7:00pm. The description in the Facebook event says the following

” To the Rebels & Rejects of Society:

Greek Row has been a place where too many of us have been shut out of for too long. We have been told we are too fat, too dark skinned, not able-bodied and don’t fit the model.
The frats have repeatedly attacked us. Both physically and verbally, they have said black lives don’t matter, they have raped us and then called us sluts & liars, they have trashed trans people making fun of them at fashion shows, they have physically attacked black woman. They tell us it is not all- but it is too many. It is time they are held accountable for these actions.
On this night we will take over and claim space on Greek Row, we will give ourselves access to this space. On this night we will center black lives, queer lives and differently abled/ disabled lives, and we will check their privilege.

To make this space accessible as possible we ask that you are scent free”

 

 

Scent free? Alright that’s a new one.

The event itself was apparently posted around the internet on forums that oppose SJW nonsense. Some of the people who came to the page engaged in deplorable and despicable racist remarks –

 

 

 

SoCawlege wasn’t able to take screenshots of these posts ourselves because they were deleted, either by the posters or the event organizers. Therefore, we can’t attest to the validity of any of the captures being thrown around. They were taken and posted in the event by people involved with the event, not by us.

Regardless, it’s clear that this event is just another example of the radical fringes of society run amok. Check out some of these posts from the event page on the other extreme, which we did screenshot ourselves:

Evana Enabulele is going after Asians for assimilating into the culture, and calling blacks who date/befriend whites Uncle Toms…. Yeah nothing wrong with that.

Sarra Tekola also thinks that members of “marginalized” groups who belong to fraternities “don’t count.”

This dumb sell out culture is what hurts the discussion more than anything else. The people behind this event are attacking members of the groups they claim to be advocating for, for not acting, thinking, and associating the way they want them to. 

Truly disgusting.

    Oh Jesus, why don’t you just bring out a shovel?

    Great job completely missing the point. I’m a greek alumni from Minnesota who supported the event and spoke there. Here’s my speech in case you’re curious.

    tl;dr: If you’re in a frat, you should stop your members from acting bigoted just for moral reasons. If you can’t do that, then you need to recognize that they’re a risk to your organization and everyone’s going to think frat’s are that way.

      Who are you to tell people what to think? You flippantly dismiss any idea that runs contrary to yours and then play the victim when people call you on it. I’m not sorry to say, you SJWs are the EPITOME of racist, bigoted and downright mean spirited people. Yes you have some valid points, but so do white males, white males you conveniently lump together with ALL of “whitendom”, as if being a white male is something to be ashamed of. If you don’t like a frat organization why can’t you just ignore it? Start your own organization? Not everybody is going to agree with you no matter how much you think you’re right. For every statistic you bring up there are a thousand more that will contradict it. Until SJWs REALLY want equality and not just revenge, you’re going to be treated like the jokes you are.

        I’m a white male and a former frat boy. I understand the culture that’s breeding this kind of behavior. Why don’t you read what I actually have to say before you start running your fingertips?

        • Michael Erickson

          Having read your speech (most of which I commend by the way, though a lot is problematic) and your dismissive opening line in your comment I already know what you have to say. You make some pretty heavy handed statements about people who disagree with your use of privilege. Not everyone that disagrees with the SJW notion of privilege is part of the problem. Hyperbole such as yours and such that I’ve seen all over the internet are what is the problem. Stop accusing and start listening even if you disagree. I have a feeling this is directed at this fraternity simply because they’re white or perceived to not be minorities. Hence the “check you privilege” BS. I am a very liberal minded person. I believe in equality for every one but I also recognize that human beings have been dealing with this since civilization began. Racism or any -ism is nothing new. The best we can do is try to get along and move forward, and let ourselves integrate or segregate along racial or ideological lines depending on the situation. Forcing integration is what keeps racism and bigotry alive. I’m not opposed to integration I just think it should be a natural process and not a political one. However, I don’t believe in dictating other people’s faculties and beliefs. Nor do I believe in denigrating an entire portion of the population simply because of the color of their skin. White or Black and everything in between. If you want to change peoples’ minds you need to actually listen to what they have to say instead of just accusing.

            You can have different opinions about privilege as much as you can have different opinions about climate change. From incarceration, to wealth, to stuff as simple as infant mortality racial minorities, black folks in particular, don’t do as well as their white peers.

            As well, integration does not and will not happen on its own by people “choosing” to integrate. Even slight, perhaps unconscious, preferences separate folks. Housing is a particular situation of that.

            You also missed another point I was making. I’m not “denigrating” greek culture for being white. The point I was making is that when your brothers are being racist, bigoted assholes, that’s a risk to your organization if you don’t stop that. If a chapter can’t take active steps to stop bigoted behavior, then that reflects on the behavior of the chapter as a whole. It’s not like being a certain race, creed, color, sexual orientation, gender, whatever is a choice, but being in a frat is. That’s a key difference when you talk about how your group is being perceived.
