My 1st Response To Joe Madison’s Call To Black Sororities & Fraternities
Is, Glad I Didn’t Pledge
Joe Madison, the Black Eagle, of Sirius Radio, channel 126 has called out the out to our sororities and fraternities…to no avail, it seems.
At Howard University in the ’60’s, I was tempted to pledge Delta vs AKA’s because the AKA’s wouldn’t accept my mother at, what’s now, Salisbury University in Salisbury, NC because she was ‘too’ dark. ‘Internalized inferiority’ had us thinking ‘lighter’ skinned Blacks were superior to ‘darker’ skinned Blacks.
Now, in 2017, Joe Madison has called out to our Black ‘intelligentsia’, on several occasions, to act like DuBois’ ‘talented tenth’ and take a collective stand on issues (a term that designated a leadership class of African Americans in the early 20th century).
Specifically, Donald Trump calling Black women ‘bitches’ and their sons, ‘sons of bitches.
