I Stand With My Brothers of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity

That Disturbing Omega Video
Tuesday Musings
 
I know, love and respect many, and I mean many Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Brothers. I really feel that had I not pledged Iota Phi Theta Fraternity I would have wanted to wear the purple and gold of Omega Psi Phi. This video that is floating around the social network is "not" indicative in any way of the manner and style of any Omega Psi Phi Brothers I have ever encountered.
 
I understand however that times have changed greatly since I was an undergraduate on a college campus. However, hopefully, they haven't changed to the degree of insensitivity and blatant disregard is shown on that video by these brothers representing Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Incorporated. It seems that certain sectors of our community of black men no matter the allegiances have lost their minds.
 
They have indeed lost the very meaning of black pride and black conscience-ness. I regret that this video has seen the light of day on the social network but it can now be utilized as a significant teaching device to allow some brothers not to make these similar huge mistakes in judgment.
 
Much love to my greek brothers of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. I stand with you as your great historic organization deals with the actions exhibited in this video by individuals not remotely in tune with the great principles of your organization, it's founders, and the many, many great Omega Psi Phi Brothers worldwide.
