Not welcome at the regular Alum Homecoming? Does Al Sharpton know about that?

They actually consider themselves as a tribe and not the standard as if everyone else is a deviation. Caucasians need to go beyond their american identities and see themselves like any other immigrant that came or were brought here... as not the original people. To be one of many tribes in the country. I have no problem with an Irish-american, or british american, or anglo-americas, or dutch- american tribes instead of just being called white.... Being just white has caused more issues I believe.. anyway just my two cents.

african americans had to form their own communities to feel like they could go and be treated as equal. That wasn't possible on "main street" and it caused cultural solidarity as a need for survival economically and socially. Make sense? Blacks did not segregate themselves... they were segregated by the dominant culture for a number of reasons.. thus tribes.

So who is making them still do that today? I just glanced at Furman’s Homecomimg schedule for next Sat. Two separate and private Black Alumni events as well as an inaugural LGBTQIA+ event. Nothing says unity and inclusion like separate and private.

Legally no one is making “them” do it… not my point

We have become and grown into an enclave and distinct culture born out of the crucible of racism and inequities. And many of us like having our own thing and being around our own tribe. As a pastor of an intercultural and multiethnic church—- when white people hang out in groups together- no one says anything- but when blacks hang out together I hear more… why are they doing that? Why are they hanging out together? What’s wrong? Why can’t they mix in? It keeps happening even after explaining and discussing the dynamics within and between the groups. We don’t go to games at ClemsoN and say… hey- I wonder why those white folks are all doing something together? So even without a “black” alumni sign gathering is still questioned.

Pretty sure there’s a difference between families and friends getting together vs. having university-sponsored events. If there were a White Alumni event and labeled “private”, people would lose their minds. It’s ironic I am desiring and advocating for unity and integration and you’re making excuses for this behavior.

I never said it was good or ok… just explaining why.

So the Irish, Scotish, German, Polish, Asian, Hispanic, Italians and other nationalities have or had their own communities/tribes in this country from the beginning because they didn't feel accepted. However, as they added new generations, they began to blend together. Now the division and return to the tribal society is being fueled by politicians and radicals. No reason for not being one big American "tribe". The opportunity has always been there.

Those groups wanted to become “white” and were allowed. Some went to court to be considered white because in many places only “white” folks could marry who they wanted, go where they wanted and purchase where they wanted. Many immigrants changed their last names and worked hard to get rid of accents and culture to become more white. Because of skin color blacks among other could never become “white” and get the privileges of such.

I think you are confusing “white” with “American.” Yes some have changed names and such to attempt to assimilate into American society. Again, that was a willful attempt to become a part of the whole…not maintain separateness.

No…..I’m not confused between being American and being white

Folks during immigration were trying to come to America and the immigration laws at points didn’t want Southern Europeans coming into the states. There was even racism against Irish, Italians, Spanish, and Eastern Europeans because they were not “white.” We are all Americans but historically simply being American was not enough to get the benefits of being a “white” American. A black person is just as American as anyone else cause we were born here and help build and contribute to our country and pay taxes… etc. but it does not mean that that excludes (see history) from segregation and unequal rights. Why couldn’t black folks who had fought and served in wars( like my Grandaddy) move into the same neighborhood and get the same loan and post service money as white GI’s? Was the white GI more American than my Grandaddy? No. So being American will not give you equal rights or voice.

I may be wrong but tribes continue in Africa AND wars continue to break out among them. It was just
a result of tribal warfare that the defeated tribes became the slaves and spoils of the victors thus
were traded to Europeans who shipped them to the west.

It’s true throughout history…. Anglo’s vs saxons, Bosnians vs Serbs, Chinese vs taiwanese, Protestant Germans vs Jewish Germans… And they do and did terrible things to each other- what’s your point. Tribalism comes from different sources and ways with different results

daughters of the confederacy ESSENTIALLY speaking ( I as a black man from charleston, have confederate officer blood in me- I am NOT in that organization though). I am not against culturally defined groups if it is NOT dangerous or detrimental to the whole in some way. We can argue later about whether a black alumni is beneficial to the whole.

The civil war again? Or to be a whole other nation again? Think man. I’m talking about origins of groups. The question you should be asking and answering is… how is this good for them and society?

I can’t wait to see one of you lose out on a city council seat in 2031, because you were saying “tribes” in 2021.
