How to Impact Racism.. Divine 9 Style


This morning I received a tag in a note written by a young lady of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. Many of you are probably familiar with "Something Greek" the paraphernalia store in West Hempstead  Long Island. If not its a store that sells greek gifts for sororities and fraternities. After visiting the store and spending over $200 this young lady visited their website and found confederate flag paraphernalia blatantly being sold in the same location.

She returned to the store and questioned the manager on the sales of the items and also asked that they be removed from his inventory and his website as they are deemed offensive to his Divine 9 customers which attribute's to a large percentage of his sales income.

First I commend this young woman for taking a stand and questioning the owner, that is in self is a positive move towards change. Questioning the offender and not just shrugging her shoulders and walking away. The manager told her that in the 20 years he has carried such products none of "us" ever complained before. (talk about a slap in the face) But then told her that since the products only attributed to such a small percentage of his sales, he would consider removing them.

In response this woman has asked that all members of the Pan Hellenic council come together to have the proprietors ability to sell Divine 9 products revoked.

In theory I think this is a very positive forward thinking idea, however it needs some OOMPH!

If we really want to make an impact we need to stop wasting time pointing out insignificant 1 off stores. Protesting their wares will not lead to any true or substantial impact in the war against racism.

If we stop patronizing this one store, ok his business will be affected momentarily from the lack of Divine 9 sales, but what if he just decided to make the core of his business Hispanic fraternities and sororities instead? Have we really made a difference or an impact? Also what about every other business that directly or indirectly offends African Americans.. How will this 1-off impact them?

If we want to make a real impact we need to start thinking BIGGER.

Pool our resources together and take ourselves off the grid, CREATE OUR OWN Greek para for our own Neos PERIOD..or let Soror Janice Taylor or Soror Dani Johnson or any other Divine 9 member who sells para to be our one stop shop for everything Greek para related and help ONE OF OUR OWN explode their business instead of places like "something greek"!

If WE are the Divine 9 What are we doing going to an outsider to buy OUR PARA anyway??? Why aren't we the only ones licensed to sell OUR own products???? If we pool our resources together and open our own para stores, for our own organizations to share and benefit from we will be filtering our money and our own business unto ourselves.

That's the only way to make an impact that will get anyone to sit up and take notice.. We need to work on developing our own network, our own stores, our own banks, our own loans, our own communities, our own villages....everything else is just spinning wheels in my opinion.
