    Something that intrigues me

    I really enjoyed this book. I think I learned more in this one book than any other book I have ever picked up. I'm not Greek, but it is a path I'm planning on taking next school year and this book gave me a lot of useful information. I recommend this to anyone who is Greek or non-Greek, and hopefully we can all come to some sort of common ground about what is going on so these organizations can continue to grow and prosper in the coming years.

    Shining an Informational Light on Fraternities

    Definitely a great piece for anyone who is in a fraternity or even desires to become a part of a Greek letter organization or other organization promoting African American brotherhood. It's always about why we choose to do certain things; not the things themselves. Jones is definitely analytical and its going to take a bit of an analytical mind to truly appreciate the content of the piece.

    Solid book

    Just finished this book last night. Anyone concerned with the phenomenon of hazing in black greek groups can't find a better book. Saw one review that said the book is full of reverse racism and hate. I don't think they read it. It is scary though, not because of white people, but because it makes us face the fact that our black men in fraternities are sometimes beating each other to death (some women are joining in now, too). We've got to do something about this or our groups won't be around for long.

    Book is full of reverse discrimination and hate.

    Do not recommend this book to anyone. It can basically be summarized as: White people are bad, black people are good.
