Washington University in St. Louis Students Want to Give Frat Houses to ‘Historically Marginalized’ Groups

“campus fraternities have a total of nine houses on campus, while underrepresented organizations have but three”

This is class envy, plain and simple. I suspect this is what drives much of the left’s disdain for fraternities.

The College Fix reports:

Student leaders: Evict white frat boys and give their houses to ‘historically marginalized’ groups

Student leaders at Washington University in St. Louis want school officials to evict the “disproportionately wealthy and white” men in campus fraternities and give their buildings to “historically marginalized” groups.

Writing in Student Life for himself and almost 50 leaders of WashU student organizations, Student Union President Ranen Miao whines that while campus fraternities have a total of nine houses on campus, while underrepresented organizations have but three.

Miao (left)a triple major in political science, sociology, and women, gender, and sexuality studies, contends the fraternities “have done nothing to earn the space they occupy.”

What’s more, when the fraternities were first established, blacks were not yet allowed to enroll at WashU and fraternities across the country had routinely barred minorities — even using so-called “Aryan clauses.”

But worst of all, there’s ample evidence fraternities are bastions of “alcoholism, hazing and sexual assault”:

Research has shown that fraternity housing is responsible for so many of the harms that Greek Life perpetuates on WashU’s campus […] By granting a small group of men exclusive access to a residential space for their members at a central location on campus, paired with little to no accountability for interpersonal violence or conduct violations, fraternity houses enable toxic masculinity, rape culture and violence to fester.

What are the economics of this?
I always thought fraternal organizations “owned” (rented, whatever) their houses, and they didn’t belong to the university.

Are these university owned houses? And even if they are, don’t the frats pay rent on them? Are the “historically marginalized groups” bidding a greater amount of rent?

Marginalized groups are often full of dumb, lazy people. They are not marginalized because of race, it is more about their character.
