So, I was walking through the union today, when I was stopped by one of my former students. He, along with several others, was selling raffle tickets to raise money for a new African American fraternity. I bought one (though I really don't need to win a romantic weekend for two). As I left, he told me to be sure to stop by the union next week...the fraternity would be holding a date auction. So, my question is...is it problematic for an African American fraternity to hold a people auction - or am I racist for thinking it's problematic?
Excellent questions. Excellent.
