Sometimes hatred, discrimination, and racism are apparent, sometimes it’s not evident. These people here were caught spewing hatred on video. You don’t want blacks in your fraternity? That’s perfectly fine. However, what I want the masses to understand is that when Blacks acknowledge that we are unwelcome somewhere and then create things for ourselves, it is not “racist” as some people love to refer to it. Racism is what you see in this video. Recently, there was controversy/criticism behind a “Miss Black Clarksville Pageant” here in middle TN, and people were wondering why we set ourselves apart. Why is it exclusive to Blacks? That’s racist. What if we had a “Miss White” pageant?

Well, the next time you find yourself wondering why there are black fraternities and sororities, historically black colleges & universities, black churches, black pageants, community organizations specifically for African-Americans, etc., or even if you wonder why all the black kids sit together in the cafeteria, I want you to remember that things like this were started for two primary reasons: 1. We have unique customs, traditions, culture, and heritage associated with us as a race that is a minority population in this here nation. 2. Racism existed, and…pssstt..it still exists. Don’t believe me?.. just watch the video. Furthermore, we’re not that far removed from segregation, the Voting Rights Act, and many other civil rights struggles. It was only a few decades ago. We go where we make ourselves feel welcome. 👉 big thanks to @marco.specs for this articulate response repost 👈 #Selma50 #Selma #Racism #Racistkids #Blacklivesmatter #BGLO #SAE #SigmaAlphaEpsilon #UniversityofOklahoma #UO (at TAG EVERY NEWS OUTLET )

For my Nashville and Middle TN friends: Since my Yuletide cake truffle collection went over pretty well, I decided to have another go for St. Paddy’s. Drunken Irishman are by far one of my most popular flavors and requested year round. These truffles take their queue from a certain cocktail with an off-color name. We start with a Guinness chocolate cake that has booze baked in, as well as brushed on, mix it with a potent Bailey’s buttercream, then dip in a swirl of white candy coating and bittersweet Jameson ganache. Very little of the booze used in these bad boys bakes out, so each bite packs a punch. This year you can drink your booze and eat it too!
