Not all fraternities are the same

I usually enjoy your show, but being an undergraduate at Oregon State and in a fraternity, I was very shocked at your broad generalization that 'fraternities are just white dudes keeping other white dudes' secrets.' Fraternities are much more than that and do a lot more than just bring social events to the campuses they are a part of. Yes, there is the occasional bad apple, but the majority of them are doing a lot of good.

historical context

Hello fellow listener,

perhaps you should consider that your anecdotal experience in the Pacific North West is not represetitive of hundreds of years of Greek life that has been dominated by Straight White Men creating exclusionary groups necessarily meant to give eachother a nepotistic edge on campus and later in the professional world.

Your prrsonal experience does not erase years of racism, homophobia, and bigotry openly practiced by many frats and something that many fraternities are clearly still struggling with today.
