How to be a Grown-Up Greek

Embrace all members (Stop calling folks “paper”)

Skater Haters! Grow up! And this is coming from someone who went on Power 99FM in Philadelphia trash talking “skaters” and anyone who didn’t pledge. I was also 21 at the time, not 30 – as the scripture says, “when I was a child I spoke as a child but now that I’m a man I put away all childish things”. It looks mighty immature of folks to still be calling people “paper” and questioning someone’s process. I question your process if five years removed from college, you are still focused on who pledged and who did not. Let’s talk about who’s doing what in their community, who’s doing what in their respective career paths. Not to mention, our internal beefs only further the stereotypes that paint the picture that we’re a gang or a cult when in fact we are young, college educated leaders whose aim is to lift our people up out of the despair we’ve been oppressed by here in America.
