So I am at a school where greek life is huge. From what i have observed, frats are nothing more than really expensive gangs for white guys. Here are some observations that i think substantiate my argument.

1. frats beat u up and make you feel like shit until you are "initiated"

2. talk to a frat brother about what happens if something were to start at a party. more times then not his response is something along the lines
" i am not worried i got 50 brothers to come back me up"

3. there are set dates and times where two houses will meet to fight

4. similar hierarchy.

5. unwavering loyalty.

6. group of brothers = trouble
Sorry for the FRAT but I really don't like what i see around my campus.
but thoughts? and how wrong am I about frat life?

1 - Never happenned to me.

7 - Holding office in a Fraternity look good on a resume.

8 - Scholarships from the national chapter.

9 - Required philanthropy and community service.

10 - Being an alumni gives inside access to jobs and networking before they go public.

11 - Maybe your experience or perspective cannot generalize into a such a a large generalization.

1. I never got beat up. Had lots of fun and made good friends, in fact.

2. This is possible, but happened to me in non-Greek settings, too.

3. Sad to say, I was involved in some big fights, and 100% were drunken accidents.

4. Almost all organizations have hierarchy - what's your point? You may as well say a similarity is that they both involve humans :-P

5. Guys left/quit all the time.

6. You may be looking at the 10% who hang at bars and start shit - what about the rest? In my experience, the assholes tended to fail out, whereas the non-assholes went to med school, law school, got MBAs, etc., and represented themselves very well.

There are frats of other races. One thing I did notice, though, is that they do tend to be segregated by race.

 and according to that episode, FRATS want you to be able to sort utensils with lightening fast speed, and pin point accuracy.

So according to late 80's TV, FRATS are made up of gangraping future busboys.
