Anonymous said: I am interested in becoming a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorortiy, Inc. ; however, I am white and people give me the side eye when I attend events. What can I do to feel embraced by the African American student body at my school
Be yourself. Honestly that’s the only way. People will always look at you differently or treat you like you don’t belong. At the end of the day, your actions, demeanor, principles and willingness to be unfazed by ignorance is what gets you accepted. It will not be easy
Here’s the thing…
Some of it isn’t ignorance. Some of it is deserved skepticism. Delta was founded for the uplift of the Black community with a special emphasis on Black women’s issues. That’s not to say that women of other races can’t be interested in that cause. I’ll tell you like I told a white interest when I was in college:
"Delta Sigma Theta is a dynamic organization. We are the largest of our kind in the world and our service is unmatched by any Greek organization. I can understand why any woman, regardless of race, would be interested in joining such a movement. That being said, you must understand that our focus is not just on service, but on service to the Black community. If you share that passion then I welcome your application but if you are at all interested in changing that mission then there are other organizations that would better suit your interests."
I am all for inclusion but let’s stay focused on the mission. My chapter crossed women of various ethnicities but our mission remained the same.
This is my Pitbull/Staffy, Jewel! We rescued her back in May. We don’t really know much about her past, but she does have a wee bit of separation anxiety that we’re trying to help her through. She is the most cuddly, loving, snuggly dog I have ever had. Her favorite thing is to snuggle up in the bed between my partner and I in the mornings!
This picture was taken in the middle of this past summer, we had taken her to a lake near our house; we of course were playing with her and she apparently felt the need to jump into the marshiest part of the lake and cover herself with really really reaaaally stinky algae. Doesn’t she look so pleased with herself?
Let’s play a fun game called “we’re just friends but I’d fuck you if you asked”
