  1. I am not surprised by the actions of the OU fraternity. At my previous institution (located in Oklahoma) I was two seconds away from killing another faculty member who had the audacity to come into my face telling me to ASSIMILATE into the all White community where the institution is located. The man is an OU graduate and there has been a successful Civil Rights Movement however Oklahoma has not gotten the memo. A civil rights attorney could get rich here.

  2. Re: Dr. Minor;

    I appreciate your intellectual honesty regarding the racist treatment you received at an HWCU in Oklahoma. I am curious in knowing what type of support did you receive from other Black professors or Black administrators’ when this was occurring? Regarding the ongoing racist behavior at HWCUs by White faculty, White administrators’, and White students(some and not all of course), it’s merely indicative of the larger society (e.g., 77.7 % White). In lieu of this, until the larger Black community to began to act as “group” instead of an “individual”, we will continue to be on the receiving end of disparate treatment.

    Unfortunately our Black consciousness has been coopted, “over-assimilated”, mentally neutered because we have someone situated in the White House whose phenotype is identified as “Black”. As a result, the Black community has literally retrograded in every SES category without making any demands on POTUS.
