My Word On Greek Fam...Sit Back & Chill Posted on 06-13-2005
College Mom

These Greek Fam threads, posters and agendas and, and, and have wore me thin. I am a mom so I can get wore thin. I got that. When I came to HBCUCONNECT over a year ago, I was really hyped. Black kids, doing some good things, talkin about some good stuff...all good in the HBCU hood. I sent MANY HBCU kids here. They know more about forums than I do so they said "naw, mom...Im mo lurk..." After about a year I decided to register, login and post. Posting on the Greek Fam threads has been more than a notion. I have NEVER encountered such vicious, smart-alecky, vile, disgusting and awful behavior EVER. I have to also say that the OVERWHELMING majority of "regular" posters to Greek Fam are intelligent, positive, helpful, patient, kind, respectful and nice...to me. Lately their has been a real funk flava that is not serving the Greek Fam well. The going back and forth to MEAC and postin, cuttin and pastin what was said here to create negativity is simply not necessary. Problem with me? Bring it straight to ME. Don't draw Greek Fam into it by luring others here to see the mess that you are creating. Get at me. PM me. I will TRY and talk to you however, some simply want to fight which I just can not understand. Why Chill? Because their is no need to do otherwise. This IS the internet and like it or not folks do come here for information, entertainment and to say "see, I told you so." Chill because weather you be Greek or not you are representing or leading folks to associate you with HBCU. Do you think for a minute that all those incredible Black Greeks who have gone before you that they would write, post, fight and do the things that some of you have done on GF? I think not. Why Sit Back? Because. Because be you GDI or Greek none of this in the scheme of things is THAT SERIOUS. You don't have to jump in someone's chest because to YOU they seem stupid. Just sit back. They gonna work it out just like some of you did. Remember sticks and stones? Walk around it... I know that things have changed over the decades. Back in my college days Greeks black or white were in a drought. Things got better...way better for the organizations. Back then BGLOS and blacks period got along. They respected one another and were cool with one another. Some of that exist today on a very large scale. Maybe it is with the older folks like myself. I don't know. But, I tell you all the Greeks and GDI's get along very well at my level. Again, I came to Greek Fam for information and I thank the MANY of you who have been welcoming, polite and a pleasure to post with. It does not bother me as regards anything that has been posted. How that could be posted is beyond me. Now, a small small number of you are out to do no good, that is your choice and I am going to stay out of your way. Again, the OVERWHELMING majority of you are really fun, informative, polite and willing to provide the best perspective. I personally thank all of you. My son is doing his thing. Like some of you, he "pledges" when he "pledges" and how he "pledges", where he "pledges, when he "pledges" is as much his business as it was yours when you were "pledging". Greek Mom as a moniker like College Mom is a moniker. My moniker, my choice. Last I looked no one was handing out official names or tryin to regulate that. Does the moniker college mom mean I am in college? Does the name Greek Mom mean I am Greek? Does it really matter in the grand scheme of LIFE? If someone wants to regulate further this site then I will say...start with yourself. I mean that in the most positive way. Those who seek to control and exert power are often suffering from some other life needs...let it go. Regulating a forum on the internet will not do the trick. Create your own site or make your site the best greek site on the worldwide web. All the postin about one person being the clearing house is a bit much. MANY greeks and gdi's do not appreciate one voice that represents them. That one stop notion is a bit much. To me. You gotta remember advertisers decide to advertise on sites because of bandwidth, volume of registered floks and other factors. Infinity hopes to sell that car but know that someone with my demographics is the likely buyer. So....careful with who you try and run out of town. Just might be the best thing for business(wink). Finally, I am on record AGAIN: 1) I have NOTHING but mad love for all of the Divine 9. 2) I have NEVER disrespected any organization period, dot. 3) I am here to learn, have fun and have my say in a peaceful way. 4) If you have an issue with me please, PM me. We can work it out. 5) Many of my lifelong friends and family are in BGLOS. 6) I DO sleep with a Greek. Get over it. Get over that as a mom I proudly say it. 7) Our son does not care what I have posted in my hundred plus posts. His personal info about what BGLOS he wants, what BGLOS want him, what HBCU he attends is his business. Not mine to tell. 8) I know that I will have to deal with posters intent on showing off their "smarts". Does not bother me. Do yo thang. Again, if your real then PM me. However, take the TIME to READ all my post so that you will have a complete HBCU picture of me. 9) I truly wish the best and all God's blessings for each and every one of you. 10) What has been said has been said and what has been done has been done. I ain't upset, frustrated or angry with anybody. Page turned. PEACE...

It aint that... She might be a great person, BUT her posts are often irritating as hell! I truly don't think she is really a mom (too many grammatical errors, misspellings.... just does not line up). Maybe after I see some pics or somethin! :grin:

I refuse to read all of that manifesto. Can anyone provide an executive summary? Does it basically boil down to a long **** Hollywood Exit?

Thanks fo the support! Cafe, cafe, cafe.... This is the internet not professional e-mail. I ain't worried bout gramma, spellin, typin, verbs, nouns, subjects, predicates and so on so forth. As you know, I have 4 degrees(1 BA, 2 Masters and a PhD). As you know, I am Published As you know, My pictures are in JET, Ebony, Black Enterprise, Essence, Town and Country and more. Ok, I look like the average middle class black mom...Jack -n- Jill, Cotillion, Links, Community, Society, Greek Wifey, type mom... Cool as all get out though...I can dress like whoa or not...I can wear most anything cause I work out. Just cut my hair...it's got a several hundred dollar color job on it...My hbcu "kids" love it... I dunno, I am a mom who loves life and that's that. This weekend I had on my white AF1's, those 200 dollar jeans and a yellow BEBE shirt...Son slapped the yellow and white Von Dutch cap on my head backwards and off to see two movies( for the price of one) we went... Honeymooners/The Smiths...ok? I took about 4 of his/my friends. What's not to like about mom taking everybody to PF Chang's fo dinner and the movies? The next night me and hubby was Black Tie...DOWN!!!! for the San Francisco Black and White Ball...they got us up in the SF Chronicle too. Again, In forums, I just write to write cause I ain't at work and ALL darn day I gotta dot my I's and cross my T's. I gotta be ON in a big way at work and in the community during the work week. Here or on any forum I ain't sweatin that. Naw partna...no. Gettin my glass of wine right now... Cafe: Welcome back. You were missed. I detect a "little" "let-up" from you to me...just a little...that's good...Cuz!

Cafe did you ask for a recap of the social calendar of College Mom? I'm not sure if listing any of this lends anymore credibility to your posts.
