AHRC is doing some of the best outreach in Atlanta. They provide services beyond needle exchange and are a safe haven for people afflicted by addiction. Get involved with this organization if you can. They are impacting our Atlanta neighborhoods in major ways!
As a non-traditional white student, my decision to attend GSU for graduate studies was partially based on the diverse student body and institution mission. I did my undergraduate at a university that offered the "traditional college experience", but as a returning adult student, the frat culture was not my cup of tea. I find the students in this environment much more interesting and fun to talk to. In addition, being situated downtown with access to professional organizations, my social groups have naturally formed off campus.
As for the kid who wants to start a "white group"- have fun, that's how you'll be remembered.
Yes, very annoying play on words by the author. People are ready for serious conversation about this and we perpetuate the Cheech and Chong stereotype with this type of writing. Would the author write about drinking using phrases like "sloshing sudster" or "sparkling moonshine buddies"? Nah, it's boring. We're in an era of progression and acceptance on a lot of social issues, act like it.
