Yo, Is This Racist?

Yo, ask me if something is racist and I'll tell you. If it's absolutely necessary for you to know, I'm not white.

Anonymous asked: Is it racist to start a white sorority? If yes, why is it okay that there are black sororities? Even if there is a sorority with a majority of white girls, there are no sororities FOR white girls. There are, however, "black sororities," such as Delta Sigma Theta and Alpha Kappa Alpha. Also, would it be racist to start a magazine called "White Women" ? If so, why is it okay that there is a magazine geared towards black women called "Ebony" ? I am tired of the double standards.

Yo, thanks for writing in with a very compelling question involving my two favorite things: bullshit claims of reverse racism and sororities.

Now, obviously you’re crazy dumb, so, a couple fun facts:
- Even though it would be super racist, no one is actually preventing you from actually forming your own White Sorority.
- Did you know the Black Sororities you mention, Delta Sigma Theta and Alpha Kappa Alpha, do not actually discriminate based on race? I know, that is SO WEIRD?!?!?
- The only reason you even think to notice that there are so-called Black Sororities, is because every other sorority is already, by your definition, White!

Ok, now, if you’ve internalized those thoughts (I’m not holding my breath), I’m ready for the bonus question. They actually split off White Women magazine several years ago into a couple different magazines: Vogue, Elle, Cosmo, In Style, V, W and Teen Vogue, to name just a small sample.

Oh, by the way, I hate you.
