Another Worthless “Alpha”…

On April 24 Across Our Confederation reported that the Kappa Alpha Order fraternity announced it would “do away with” the wearing of Confederate uniforms during “Old South” parades and parties.

It’s hard to believe that on the heals of this news we could find a fraternity that is more worthless than Kappa Alpha Order, yet we did.

Black News.Com is reporting that:

“Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., the oldest integrated and historically black Greek-lettered organization in the world, today announced that it’s moving its 104th Anniversary Convention from Phoenix, Arizona.

Late Thursday, April 29, our national Board of Directors voted unanimously to rescind the location of Phoenix, Arizona as our meeting location of the 104th Anniversary/90th General Convention in July, and to denounce the egregious immigration act signed recently by the governor of Arizona,” said Herman “Skip” Mason, Jr., the fraternity’s national general president.”

Wow does anyone else see the hypocrisy here?  The oldest BLACK fraternity in the world is screaming racism in regards to Arizona trying to prevent their state from being over ran by drug lords, kidnappers and illegal immigrants?

I think the key phrase here is “oldest black fraternity in the world”…not exactly the sound of an “all inclusive” organization.

It also reveals the hypocrisy of the media who , tar and feathered Congressman Joe Wilson for exclaiming “You Lie!” to Barack Obama.

As Casey Gane-McCalla wrote on April 7, 2010 for News One ( an online publication that bills itself as “For Black America”):

“Several prominent republicans have attached themselves to the Confederacy, they are known as neo-confederates. One neo-confederate who has recently come to prominence is South Carolina congressman, Joe Wilson. Wilson gained national media exposure by yelling “You Lie!!!” during Obama’s speech.

Wilson is a member of Sons Of Confederate Veterans, the group that lobbied for Confederate History Month in Virginia. The group started off to preserve southern heritage but has recently been taken over by neo-confederate extremist “lunatics” “

A little tip for Black Fraternities, and media outlets…before you scream “racism” toward lawmakers and Sons of Confederate Veterans members, maybe you should clean up your own back yards. Unlike YOU the Sons of Confederate Veterans is not exclusive to one race.
