But they didn't say "I hate black people", so they're clearly not prejudiced/racist.

Reminds me of my old college days at the Beta house when we were all throwing awesome parties and getting top shelf pussy.  Being in a frat fosters deep brotherhood ties and friends for life. It's really something you losers would know nothing about - especially getting top shelf pussy.

I am convinced that love is the most durable power in the world. It is not an expression of impractical idealism, but of practical realism. Far from being the pious injunction of a Utopian dreamer, love is an absolute necessity for the survival of our civilization. To return hate for hate does nothing but intensify the existence of evil in the universe. Someone must have sense enough and religion enough to cut off the chain of hate and evil, and this can only be done through love.

The party theme is awful and they should be ashamed of themselves for that.  However, a watermelon cup sounds awesome.  Sort of a like how you make spiked watermelons for barbeques, but in a personal sized variety. You could make up a punch that would be awesome with watermelon,too, to go in there.    Not something I'd want to drink all the time (or in January, really it seems more of a summer thing), but could be fun to try out now and then.

Gentlemen, I'll be brief. The issue here is not whether we broke a few rules, or took a few liberties with our female party guests - we did.  But you can't hold a whole fraternity responsible for the behavior of a few, sick twisted individuals. For if you do, then shouldn't we blame the whole fraternity system? And if the whole fraternity system is guilty, then isn't this an indictment of our educational institutions in general? I put it to you, Fark - isn't this an indictment of our entire American society? Well, you can do whatever you want to us, but we're not going to sit here and listen to you badmouth the United States of America. Gentlemen!

Don't be so sure - ASU has turned into a pussy-whipped Brady Bunch version of the University I went to in the 80's.  I have no doubt that there is some "Embrace diversity" codicil in the Student Rules Pledge (or whatever it's called) that can, and will, result in the identified students being sent to a mandatory meeting with a disciplinary official.

It's really something you losers would know nothing about - especially getting top shelf pussy.


I'm sure when your master Betan brothers tied you to your friends you were getting tons of that top shelf pussy, which wasn't so bad once if you could get past the used part.

Mine, yes. Hell, we had quite a few black brothers who would have been real pissed about that. But that's the point. We had black brothers because we were, for the most part, good guys. We went after good guys because we weren't assholes.  Hell, the fact you have a guy, posting here on fark about it, shows it was a completely typical fraternity.

Not necessarily defending these frat guys.  Odds are, some are racist.  But there's a difference between stereotyping and racism.  Every group is stereotyped.  Every group's stereotype is negative.  And every group's stereotypes are laughed at.  White (honkey, square), Christian (stupid about science, etc.) Muslim (hates women, hates freedom, loves bombs) Irish (drunk), English (squares, bad teeth, obsessed with queens)...  Laughing at a stereotype is not racist.  Heck, most cultural groups aren't even separated based on race.  Frustrating to live in a country where laughing at differences is automatically condemned as racism based on someone's oversensitivity/desire to be offended.

Beeblebrox: "If you can't go greek, go TKE.  If you can't go TKE, go home."  was what they used to say in the '80s at my school.  Seems things haven't changed much.


Full disclosure: I was a Teke in the 1980s. It was a saying we all knew well, and some of us wore it with pride.

Very few of us were actual frat-boy douchebags, and we didn't feel much affinity with the "greek system" as a whole (except on "social" nights with sororities, but I digress).

It was socialized socializing, and nothing more. On any given Saturday night, 80 guys chipping in $20 each can have a much better time than one guy with a $20 bill.

The issue here is not whether we broke a few rules, or took a few liberties with our female party guests - we did.  But you can't hold a whole fraternity responsible for the behavior of a few, sick twisted individuals. For if you do, then shouldn't we blame the whole fraternity system? And if the whole fraternity system is guilty, then isn't this an indictment of our educational institutions in general? I put it to you, Fark - isn't this an indictment of our entire American society? Well, you can do whatever you want to us, but we're not going to sit here and listen to you badmouth the United States of America. Gentlemen!

berylman: I am convinced that love is the most durable power in the world. It is not an expression of impractical idealism, but of practical realism. Far from being the pious injunction of a Utopian dreamer, love is an absolute necessity for the survival of our civilization. To return hate for hate does nothing but intensify the existence of evil in the universe. Someone must have sense enough and religion enough to cut off the chain of hate and evil, and this can only be done through love.

I was a TKE in college (small liberal arts school that was 65% greek so 2 or 3 of the houses weren't all full of bros.)  Pretty much every other TKE chapter in the state of were just downright scary.  Pretty sure University of Michigan's chapter was on permaban when I was in college, and MSU's chapter got banned while I was in school.

First, why does it seem that 75% of the embarrassing actions by fraternities across this country are committed by a TKE, SAE, or PIKE chapter?  (Racist parties, dead bodies, anal chugging!)  You are an embarrassment to the entire greek community that has grown tired of attempting to point out that not every fraternity is as horrible as you.  And, yes, all the other fraternities and sororities think you are horrible when you do these things!

Second, if you lack the intellect to come up with a non-offensive theme party, let me give you some free advise.  Call your next party a "beer party".  Trust me, you cannot go wrong. It tells all perspective attendees that there is going to be beer there.  Free beer guarantees that plenty of women will attend. Given you are college students you are expected to drink beer at a party, so chances of getting kicked off campus are reduced by almost 100%.

Third, if you absolutely have to plan an offensive themed party, than please: (A) Promote it by word of mouth only.  No email, no FaceBook page, no posters, or anything the can be used to destroy plausible denyability, AND (B) Confiscate all cameras and phone cameras upon entry.

Finally, if you ignore all of the rest of my free advise, when you get caught doing something really horrible, (example: offensive parties, dead bodies, anal chugging - yeah, I am talking about you TKE, SAE, PIKE) please, WHAT EVER YOU DO, don't attempt to defending your actions by claiming that you preform a couple of hours of community service each year.  Seriously, that is pretty lame.

I never worked in a porn store, but yeah, the phrases "Greek life," "Going Greek," or "Greek system" all seem to be a not-so-subtle code for "Under my bed you will find dust, an empty pizza box, a container of astroglide, and a rubber fist."

You had me cracking up so hard at lunch with this!  I walked back to my office, stopped laughing, then got back to work.  On the bus home, I started thinking about "TSP" and tried to hold back my laughter so much, my tummy hurt and tears came out of my eyes!!!  The people on the bus probably thought I was high or something.

The more I thought those words "Top Shelf Pussy" to myself, the harder I'd laugh.  I'd come up with other uses for it such as in conversation:

"Oh dude, how was that pussy you had last night?"
"Top shelf man, top... shelf."

or...

OPENING UP FOR STEEL PANTHER TONIGHT:
TOP SHELF PUSSY!

or of course Spottswoode from Team America which I posted above.

Thanks so much for making me laugh all day!  Now I have a date tomorrow night and if I get lucky, I'll be really judging hard to see if she qualifies as "Top Shelf".  I'll let you all know.  :)

I'm in a black fraternity, and no, we didn't have parties like that when I was an undergrad. Don't get me wrong...we had our fair share of assholes too. It just never occurred to us to host a theme party that made fun of anybody.

The kind of theme parties we had were pajama parties (which was really just an excuse to get girls to come dressed in lingerie) and old school parties (i.e. 70's, or 80's). Pretty harmless stuff, but still fun as hell.

1/10. When non-Irish people start running around New York hitting people with shillelaghs and conducting mock lynchings of black people on St. Patrick's Day, then you're getting close to equivalence.


The waters are muddy on both sides of the argument. Euro-Americans have a long tradition of not accepting anything different as a human being - red, yellow, black were all shiat upon, but even those groups couldn't stand the Irish, who were often considered as low (or lower than blacks). Google will give no shortage or returns for lynchings and mistreat ment of the Irish, Asians, and just about any group, race or religion if you look thru history. What makes sure hate will always be there is that people always hold onto the hate, even if for something that did not happen to them, or from anyone they know, or even in their lifetime. Until that changes, there will always be fear of anything different, and always be racism.

Can't wait until the first aliens show up on our planet - you thought things were bad already....

/Irish and British lineage myself
//finds racism doesn't discriminate - every race seems to hate/fear every other race pretty much in equal measure.
///of course, some will find these remarks to be racist - which is a circular argument.
