The word "Greek" should be expelled from all Frats and Sororities. No one here is Greek, infact if anyone is close to it; it's me. I detest your clan using it's country's people names to dignify an affiliation. Or, and just to add more fuel to the fire...Erasmian translation (The letters and pronunciation you all use) did not orginate in Greece, nor is it very prevailent in Greece. Italy biches. I thought change would have said. why you all want to be greek you all want to be white like BUSH f**k white trash and bush stop being mental midgets
Well if you are the NCAA I can understand why you would have a problem with us using a culture to describe ourselves. But first describing ourselves as greek, while being black is using slang; it's short for black greek letter organization. As far as the wishing to be white . . . laughable. Wanting to be like Bush . . .. offensive. stop being mental midgets. . .you and changeplease grow up and learn some tact, when it comes to this issue. Nuff said.

As far as the Erasmian Pronunciation When the greeks dispersed to other areas after the invasion of the Turks, they introduced their culture to those areas. This continued for centuries and the result was a mix of Latin and Grecian tongues, which is referred to as Byzantine Greek. In the early renaissance period it was decided that western education be based on learning the grecian literary classics. Erasmus noticed the differences between the spelling of the words in the ancient texts and it's modern pronunciation. He began to champion returning the pronunciation of greek letters to its classical roots, which although slow to catch on, was eventually adopted by the top universities in England and then other parts of Europe. BUT, Erasmian Pronunciation is the ACADEMIC pronunciation of greek letters. Byzantine Greek (or Modern greek) is very much still being spoken in Greece today. Therefore, the same greek letters we use for our organizations make sense since they were founded on college campuses. Erasmus later in life denounced his own theory and rarely, if ever actually used it in his own scholarly writing.
SKEEEEEEEEEE PHIIII Phrat!

A gift from a bruh to his soror It's a lot deeper than words on a piece of paper my friend Change. If that's what you need to appease your self-righteous view into greek life, paper burns but true love is forever. If that document that binds Sigma and Zeta together catches fire, are they no longer legit to you? Because the "official" document is no longer tangible. You have a friend right? You 2 would share a bond. That bond is near and dear to your heart and ya'll are tighter than brothers (or sisters), do you view that as a bond? Because what you're saying is in order for there to be a bond, there must be "official" documentation for that to be true. I just want you to understand the argument that you are making and how you seem to contradict yourself if you infact have a friend that you hold near and dear to your heart. We may not have it written on a piece of paper in the library of congress but our relationships are written all over the history of BGLOs as well as African American history as well. ROO-OOP to them DAMN DELTAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Looking good ladies. I love all of ya'll always and forever
Very, Very well put! Gotta love that. Anyway, Change as it seems no one will be able to give you a response that will penetrate. Trust me, I am not trying to argue with you, I am merely making an effort to aid your understanding, however, I see that that's not what this thread was created for. You cannot place us against each other by choosing an organization to put the "focus" on. In past threads you bash the Zetas, Deltas, AKAs, Omega Men, etc. What is your purpose? Divide and conquer on a message board perhaps? The answer doesn't get any better than what MY Bruh stated in the quote above. That was for you WileE and B, I've got love for you all too babe.

You might as well just be honest with yourself and face the facts that you don't know what race you are Let's name a few that I've heard you represent over the past few weeks White Italian Mexican Black Greek whats next.... I mean seriously do you change your status daily or are you just mixed with a lil bit of everything. I would just like a little clarification. And just because GREEK LETTER ORGANIZATIONS use the term greek does not mean that they are trying to be greek nor white nor BUSH.... so you can save that crap for the birds. And once again why must you bring race into EVERYTHING... I think maybe you should visit a psychiatrist or something because clearly you have issues that need to be solved within yourself.... No need for you to respond to this message because we are not going to agree anyways. GOOD DAY

I don't get it. I start a thread asking a simple harmless membership question and I get NO REPLIES. This joker Change starts a thread bashing greeks and in record time he gets 30+ replies? Everywhere he goes yall feed into his game. Yall turn away and beat up on those who have honest questions but you give all your time and energy to the negative ones who do nothing but "divide and conquer" as so stated earlier. I just don't get it. Is Change more fun to converse with or something?

@ Areme I went back and looked for the topic that you were referring to. I don't see a topic in which you received no response. Check your PMs though, sweetie.
