Occidental Prof Wants Ban on Wealthy White Frats
“fraternities have drink, danger, and debauchery in their blood—right alongside secrecy and self-protection.”
Once again, a progressive academic is trying to control what everyone is allowed to do.

Prof Calls For ‘Wealthy White’ Frats To Be Banned, But Pauses On Banning Black Ones
A professor argued that colleges should ban fraternities “which hoard power and influence specifically for white men” in a May op-ed and justified it on a radio show Monday, but paused when addressing black frats Tuesday on Twitter.
Lisa Wade, a sociology professor at Occidental College in California, argued that reform is “simply not possible” for frats in a Time op-ed, discovered by Campus Reform Friday.
“Reform is not possible because the old-line, historically white social fraternities have been synonymous with risk-taking and defiance from their very inception,” said Wade in her op-ed. “They are a brotherhood born in mutiny and forged in the fire of rebellion. These fraternities have drink, danger, and debauchery in their blood—right alongside secrecy and self-protection.”
The professor justified her argument by citing the death of Timothy Piazza in February 2017 as a result of hazing in a fraternity at Penn State. She also asserts a long history of previous administrative efforts to ban frats and that fraternities dominated campus leadership positions, citing one account alleging that they worked together to keep non-Greek students out of these positions.

Love how Women get to opine on all things relating to men (Mansplaining, Manspreading, and now Fraternities) but if a man offers an opinion on a Female function or institution it’s a War on Women.
“citing one account alleging that they worked together to keep non-Greek students out of these positions.” Just like the donkeys and elephants trying to keep each other out of political power. The Greeks won’t let her win so the Greeks must be banned. Nuts!
