"One of the problemz we should have with the Boule' and BGLO’s are that they falsely acknowledge the GREEKS as the founders of civilization. We of course know this is a lie."

pt.1: who iz the boule'?
by m'bwebe ishangi
As we come into knowledge of self, we must too become aware of who doesn't want us to "know thyself". The average Afrikan who has some knowledge of white supremacy might feel it's been, and only been, the "blue-eyed devil" that is responsible. True, but not truth. If you read the piece I wrote, IZ YT Human? or Mutant!, I spoke of the biblical brotherz, abraham and moses, as one of the first sell-outs of the Afrikan spirit.
As you well know, this country was founded by criminalz who colonized this area just as they chalked up Afrika in the 18th and 19th century. As we had our plantationz in the south with house negroes and field Afrikanz, we find this trend has never changed as the yearz have gone by. Thanks to research done by Ancestor Steve Cokely, we have found there's a black secret society that's been closely associated with maintaining the grip of white supremacy on people of color. The same secret societies these house negroes answer to, have a long history rooted in the physical and mental enslavement of Afrikanz around the globe. This black "secret society" is called the Boule' aka Sigma Pi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated, founded May 15, 1904 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This is the 1st black fraternity in america and unbeknownst to many, before the 1st black "college" frat, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated which was founded nearly two yearz later, December 4, 1906.
The Boule' is a black GREEK secret society based on another secret society founded at Yale University called Skull & Bones. The Boule's primary founder was Dr. Henry McKee Minton along with Dr.'s Eugene T. Henson, Edwin Clarence Howard, Algernon Brashear Jackson, Robert Jones Abele and Richard John Warrick; all of Philadelphia.
The founding member of the New York City chapter, WEB DuBois, said the Boule' was created to "keep the black professional away from the ranks of Marcus Garvey." (One thing that needz to be pointed out is the time period. Just over a decade after the founding of the Boule', Marcus Garvey's 'Back to Afrika' movement (also known as the 'Colonization Movement') and his newspaper, the Negro World, was reaching a million-plus people without tv or radio. DuBois emphasized, as Cokely stated,
"the importance to steal the black professional away from Garvey because an Afrocentric organization that articulated and captured the black professional would give YT no safe haven in the black community, so the Boule' — the remaking of the house negro — was necessary to build a group of negroes who had an investment in protecting the white system as produced by YT having stolen this land... This is post reconstruction. Taking away the articulate negro, now desiring to replace them with organized institutions to keep them away from self improvement. So we find in the same period, as the founding of the Boule', the founding of the 4 black male (Alpha Phi Alpha, Kappa Alpha Psi, Omega Psi Phi, and Phi Beta Sigma) and 4 black female (Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Zeta Phi Beta, and Sigma Gamma Rho) college-based fraternities and sororities...We also find the founding of the NAACP and Urban League."
DuBois was one of the strongest opponents of Garvey and was an instrumental "tool" in stopping one of the strongest grassroots movements of the last century. What was Garvey's plan? His plan was to take as many Afrikanz from the america's and start a settlement in the nation of Liberia and then help this new nation produce and control their own rubber crops and create other industries made of natural resources. Garvey said,
"If the oil of Afrika is good for Rockefeller's interest; if iron is good for Carnegie trust; then these minerals are good for us. Why should we allow wall street and the capitalist group of america and other countries exploit our country when they refuse to give us a fair chance in the countries of our adoption? Why should not Afrika give to the world its black Rockefeller, Rothschild, and Henry Ford?"
This would've potentially meant no Goodyear nor U.S. Steel as we know it today because it would have set a precedent that would make all Afrikanz aware of their land and mineral wealth it offerz. This also would've shattered the financial arm of white supremacy right when it was getting started! DuBois, along with Alain Locke — the first black (Cecil) Rhodes scholar — publicly defiled Garvey by calling him a gorilla and "a little, fat, black man, ugly...with a big head." Locke was quoted as saying, "We hope the white man deliver's cause we crushed a great black thing, but we know he'll deliver or our people will attack and plague us forever more." These two house negroes made a bet that YT would come out on top and give a certain percentage to these greedy negroes, namely Boule’ memberz, the wealth they stole from Afrika! What’s deep is they didn’t believe in Afrikan self-reliance and deferred their allegiance to their overseer hoping they’d give them table scraps instead of making their own!
Understand the Boule' represents the weakest and most despicable element of Afrikan people. As Cokely put's it best, "It took a type of nigger to form an organization like this. I mean, we just got our asses kicked during reconstruction, Afrika was divided before our very eyes (via the Berlin conference), damn, this was 50 years before Rosa Parks!" The question is why were these black devilz like this? The answer may lie in the fact that the Boule' is a greek organization!
The name Boule' is a greek term, meaning "adviser's to the king". The next question should be, "who's the king?!" Cokely and historian Ashra Kwesi revealed in a lecture the king that they receive direction from and protect like their logo the Sphinx — a guardian animal (more on that in a sec) — are the white secret societies responsible for white supremacy: the first white greek fraternity, Phi Beta Kappa; the Illuminati, Rhodes/Rothschild secret society, Skull & Bones, the Masonz, the Round Table Group, The New World Order, One World Government, the Carnegie, Mellon, Rhodes, Milner's Kindergarten, The Rhodes Crown, Times Crown, All Souls Group, Clevedine Sect, and numerous other wealthy family organizationz (all are simply alias' and go by many names, but consist of same memberz and ideology). These white beasts have raped, murdered and colonized our people for hundredz of yearz and their children continue the genocide against people of color around the globe.
One of the problemz we should have with the Boule' (and the offsprings of the Boule': the 8 college fraternities and sororities) is that they falsely acknowledge the greeks as the founderz of civilization. We of course know this is a lie. We know that the greeks got their knowledge from the Nile Valley (ancient Nubia and Kemet); we know they plagiarized said knowledge after killing us off and raping Kemet then deemed themselves as the originatorz of the knowledge we gave them; we are fully aware of their actionz of erasing the Afrikan presence of Kemet! We also know Pythagoras did not create a theorem and that he was one of may falsely credited father's of the arts and sciences from our ancient Afrikan mystery schoolz.
So who is the Boule'? They are the so-called "talented 10th" DuBois is famous for speaking of. It must also be noted that DuBois' boy, Locke, was a homosexual. It should also be noted, DuBois was perceived to have homosexual tendencies and we find so was the belief of those party to the Harlem Renessaince movement. In essence, they modern-day house negros are a mutation of a white man that seeks to represent something he is not (greek). They are "prominent" blacks white america gave to us. Collectively, all 5000+ memberz and 112 chapterz throughout the United States and West Indies make up the wealthiest group of black men on the planet — and to think, none are working in the interest of black people but rather, gets a kick out of holding YT's penis as he pisses on people of color! We must realize the house nigga/field Afrikan theory ain't dead!
Yes the Boule' is in your town! As of 1994, there were 101 chapterz in the world. Anywhere there are professional blacks, the Boule' coagulates. The amount of memberz of the Boule's wealth (including strong political and economic connectionz — strong enough to assist in killing Malcolm X and fellow Boule' member Martin Luther King) cannot be matched by any other blacks anywhere in the world!
THE HISTORY OF THE BOULE'
Boule', again, meaning "adviser's to the king", is the lower house of greek parliament. Inside the Boule' history book, 'History of Sigma Pi Phi: First of the Negro-American Greek-Letter Fraternities' written by Boule' member, *Charles H. Wesley in 1954 wrote on page 28, why one of it's founding memberz, Minton, who also owned the first black drugstore in the United States, wanted to create such an organization, "Minton wanted to create an organization which would partake in the tenants (basis, or root) of Skull & Bones at Yale."
*NOTE: Ironically, Charles H. Wesley released the Boule's history book the same year George G.M. James 'Stolen Legacy' was released. Could this have been a campaign by the Boule' as a buzz-kill to the movement G.M. James' book would've created? Was Welsey to G.M. James as DuBois and Woodson were? Wesley was a 33rd° Prince Hall Mason as was G.M. James!. Wesley also wrote the history books for Alpha Phi Alpha, the Elks, and Prince Hall Masonz and founded Central State University in the state of Ohio.
Now who is Skull & Bones?! Also known as the 'Brotherhood of Death' and the 'Second chapter of the Illuminati', Skull & Bones' was established in 1832 at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut by William Huntington Russell. The first chapter, Phi Beta Kappa was founded May 1, 1776 in Ingolstadt, Germany by Adam Weishaupt but was forced underground after exposed only to resurface as the Phi Beta Kappa Society at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia December 5, 1776.
In 1856, with several other Bonesmen, Russell incorporated Skull & Bones as the Russell Trust and later as the Russell Trust Association; a tax-exempt association who holdz possession of the Skull & Bones Hall at Yale University and the society's holiday island, Deer Island to this day.
The list of memberz are grand with many of politicanz and president's you know. Both ex-president's George Bush, Sr. and Jr. and even ex-vice president Al Gore are memberz of this cult. Now remember, the beast uses many different names to confuse you, but they are all based in the same ideology: upholding white supremacy!
Most politicianz, both black and white, are Masonz but there is a difference. Non-whites can only attain 33°, whereas whites can receive 33 and 1/3rd°. The root of Masonry is of the knowledge (33 1/3°) moses gave YT when he came to "civilize" them from living as beasts up in the caucus(asian) mountainz. They practiced homosexuality, killed and ate people as ritualz they're alleged to perform still today! Using biblical mythoogy, they pledged in not letting the Afrikan wo/man know that Jacob (Yakub), who was black, made caucasianz and through plagiarizm and enforcing "education" from through the lenses of blue-eye's, we are taught they are the originatorz of the arts, science, language, and culture.
Now! If Boule' co-founder Henry Minton, who was of Afrikan descent, wanted to create a black secret society based on these beliefs and customz, what type of lost soul is he? On page 38 of the Boule’s history book, it readz,
"In the building of the organizations plan, reliance was placed upon GREEK history and tradition. The reasons of this action are not difficult to discover, for it is well known that the study of greek civilization was basically an acquaintance with western civilization, although greek culture had relationships with the culture of the orient."
What they're not saying is that with the greeks it wasn't a relationship withe the orient but in fact were hostile culture bandits who stole our way of life from our Ancestorz in Kemet! Clever how they chose not to even mention Afrika and settled for saying the "orient" which meanz east. In summation, every black and white greek fraternity and sorority manipulates the true history of where the greeks learned what they know. This is why it don't make sense to be called a black GREEK! I should know, I pledged one but have since denounced my membership with black greek organizationz.
If you are familiar with Masonry of old, back in the dayz memberz took a pledge to never reveal the secrets of that organization for if one did, their punishment would be death. For example in the book, 'Mason Oaths Null and Void', by Edmond Ronayne (1880), the Blue Lodge oath states,
"I promise that I will not write, print, cut or engrave masonic secrets...binding myself under no less penalty than to have my throat cut across, my tongue torn out by the roots and my body burned."
The York Rites 9th° pledges,
"...to have my hands chopped off at the stumps, my eyes plucked out from the sockets, my body quartered, and then thrown among the rubbish of the Temple...so help me God."
Thanks, to an article written July 18th, 1990 of the LA Times and one published in the, Washington Post on November 23, 1991, the Boule' was exposed.
Because people are beginning to find out what the Boule’ is about, as well as their own children lacking interest in joining, as a form of damage control the Boule’ publicly claim themselves as only a “social” organization. I confronted fellow Boule’ member — and reknowned Afrocentric historian — of works I highly respect, Asa Hilliard several tymz in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Harlem, New York between 1998-2002 each time questioning about his affiliation with the Boule’. The first time he said, "we're just a group of people that throw banquets and picnics," the second time a security team prevented from completing our exchange right when I asked him why he would associate himself with a group of black men who aspire to resurrect the practices and values of Skull&Bones. Doing his best not to look at me directly, he stated he only knowz the Boule’ to be a “social” organization and if there’s any more than that, he’s not aware because he only attendz the social functionz.
His reply was disheartening. Hilliard is was a Pan-Afrikan scholastic giant! His colossal body of research about our Afrikan legacy matches the efforts of Chancellor Williams, Cheikh Anta Diop, and John Henrik Clarke! But, again, it was disheartening to hear his reply to me because I knew he was outright lying choosing to abide by the oath he took to never let us know who runz the world!
My implication of Hilliard stemz from knowing their history — something he must've thought I didn't know! As part of their annual ritual, every May each member is required to re-read their organizationz history book from cover to cover as a form of rededicating their allegiance — and this is mandatory! Before his passing, Hilliard was a member of the 10th chapter (Kappa) in Atlanta, Georgia, so as long as he had been a member he most definitely read at least pages 28 and 38 at least once each year each year as a member!
What's more, like Skull&Bones, you are tapped to join and membership is all-inclusive. This isn't an organization that allowz casual membership or memberz to attend social functionz only! This is a group comprised of the wealthiest black men the world has to offer, so for Hilliard to say he just attended social functionz — something he stated to me at a Pan-Afrikan sponsored event, mind you — showz just where the core of his true allegiance lies!
As you will learn about their roster of elites and logo, they've sworn to never let you know the names of those who rule the world! Unfortunately, my engagements with Hilliard never went further and his true position never answered; he passed in 2007.
The Boule’ holdz regional conferences every year and a bi-annual national conference. Trust, we know that each member knowz of the core of their organizationz origin and it’s false acceptance of the greeks being the founderz of civilization, it’s just baffling one of our very own Pan-Afrikan leaderz would also be part of it.
What was interesting about the 1990 LA Times article was the association of the Boule' with Skull & Bones:
"Like Yale's Skull & Bones secret society to which (then president) George Bush belongs, the Boule' has been criticized by some as a social anachronism, and has challenged members to change its image."
The 1990 incoming Boule' president, Dr. Benjamin Major said he was aware of charges that the group is more interested in socializing and congratulating itself on its wealth and success exclusively, rather than making a substantial contribution to the rest of black america. He said:
"We don't want to appear as if we were the remaining above the problems of most black people. We know we didn't get here solely by the dint of our own hard work. We owe a lot of people, AND we have to give back to our brothers and sisters."
The key thing he said is that they owe a lot of people and made this separate from them having to "give back to our brothers and sisters." Who do they owe for their success?? It's who they take direction from... the king (aka Rhodes/Rothschild Secret Society)!
Boule' member Vernon Jordan [who is also on the Trilateral Commission and Board of Council of Foreign Relations (CFR) — which was started by cecil rhodes and lord rothschild, responsible for last phase of development of white supremacy] was quoted at a Boule' function as saying,
"We, the talented 10th, are the best able and the only ones suitable to save the black race." This is the egotistical mentality of all memberz and can be traced back to its origin.
Overstand that virtually all black "leaderz" white america give us actually has/had an allegiance with global white supremacist organizationz and secret societies. If you think about it, back in the early 1900s we weren't even 40 yearz out of slavery, so the house negro/field Afrikan mentality was still in existence. Most Afrikanz of that time, had gone through innumerable amounts of self-denial. The old cliche', "If you black, get back; if you're brown, stick around; and if you're white, you're right!", was apparent mental misnomer most of our Ancestorz adopted becoming lost in ourselves through bleaching skin, conked hair, and speaking "correct english" in order to be seen different than a field Afrikan.
We must also realize that most of the co-founderz of black organizationz were mulatto's (very light-skinned) or most definitely lighter than a brown paper bag (as was once a requirement for BGLOs for membership)! These house negroes had already been programmed to feel they're better than dark-skinned blacks. Many went out of their way to prove to YT they were different (read part 4). Because we were now physically emancipated or "free", YT still needed to keep an eye on us by moving us over to mental enslavement. To do this, they needed an overseer; and as well, needed to focus on reprogramming us to be any and everything other than Afrikan. For efficiency, they knew they needed to strategically concentrate on the youth; which should not be a coincidence around the same time as the founding of the Boule' we find the creation of the NAACP (founded by two jewish spies who posed DuBois as their scapegoat) and the Urban League. Among otherz black upper-class organizationz, we find:
• The Black Cotillion - starting in the 1920s
• Jack and Jill - 1938
• Knights of Pythagoras - 1960 (reorganized in 1968)
• InRoads - 1970
One must also note that NAACP co-founder, Joel E. Spingarn, a known spy of the Afrikan community who also was very influential in the founding of the Boule'. A lot of us don't know many of these organizationz were really a front! They were s'posed to defend the countless atrocities against black people. On the contrary, we found out the very whites we were complaining about, actually helped found these organizationz!!
See, this makes a lot of sense now. I overstand why the NAACP doesn't even own the building their national headquarterz is located at. Think about it. With all the fundz the NAACP gets annually, they still have to pay rent for their building?! That's because they have to answer to someone who is their major fund raiser.
While we were being lynched, raped, and murdered by YT, we thought organizationz like the NAACP would help us fight for justice only later to find out the person our "leaderz" answer to is the very one with blood on his handz!! Can you see why we are in the shape we're in today Afrikanz?! It is very evident.
In the wordz of Cokely:
"When we look at the Boule' closely, we find a confusion of values. Black men who felt that their advancement was edged upon a positive relationship with wealthy and influential white people. And I say that that may have an adverse impact on our revolution. Therefore, we give them (the Boule') today, this official warning... Our goal is not to kill off the Boule'; but to warn them as an organization. To warn the individual that if they bring false values, or worship a false idol, into the community at a time the community attempts to self-determinate (liberate ourselves), if we gave the call, they will come and grab you, we have every one of your addresses and phone numbers, we can get you, if we choose to. But we only choose to ask you to step aside and the day we got to get "massa", you find some way to be on vacation... To kill off the Boule' would be like eating the peel off a banana and ignoring the actual banana."
In other wordz, in order to stop the puppet, you must stop the puppeteer.
We have a copy of the Boule' membership book and found some very interesting names. Out of the list we found memberz such as, Dr. Daniel Hale Williams (performed 1st open hear surgery); Ralph Bunche (former UN Ambassador); Arthur Ashe (famed Tennis Player); Whitney Young (once President of the Urban League); Martin Luther King, Jr.; Benjamin Mays; W.E.B. DuBois, Carter G. Woodson (Historian and author of The Miseducation of the Negro); John H. Johnson (founder of John H. Johnson Publishing and Ebony and Jet magazines); Maynard Jackson (once mayor of Atlanta) — these men all died never speaking of the Boule' and therefore taking the secrets of white supremacy with them to the grave; true oath takerz in the fullest definition.
Some notable living memberz are Hank Aaron (once Major League Baseball Homerun king); Tom Bradley (tv personality); Dennis Archor (once mayor of Detroit); Elvin Big 'E' Hayes (NBA Basketball great); Bill Cosby; Jesse Jackson; Earl Graves, Jr. (Black Enterprise); Douglass Wilder (Governor of Virginia); Lynn Swann (NFL Hall-of-Famer), Kweisi Mfume (once head of NAACP), and David Dinkins (once mayor of New York City), to name a few.
kwesi mfume: the boule's 'Keith sweat'
An interesting note about Kweisi Mfume is his acceptance into the Boule' outside the traditional manner. Cokely pointed out in order to become a member of the Boule', you must be in one of the BGLO (Black Greek-Lettered Organizationz) Fraternities: Alpha Phi Alpha, Kappa Alpha Psi, Omega Psi Phi, or Phi Beta Kappa—not sure about Iota Phi Theta.).
On top of that, you can't just walk up to a member and say you want to join. The Boule' does the choosing mainly through a grooming process that beginz as early as the auxiliary groups like Jack and Jill mentioned earlier. Through these groups, they develop prospects. This is the cess, I mean, talent pool they choose from, not someone dick-ridin' to get it.
We learned Kweisi wanted in bad, so much so, he even wrote a letter "Keith Sweatin" his way to being tapped! We have a copy of that letter here.
Thing is, Mfume wasn't in a BGLO! So how did he become a member? Doin' a lil' diggin', we find he was made an honoray member of Omega Psi Phi's Grand Chapter as a, get this... "Special Intake" on July 11, 2012, at 8:12 AM by the 78th Grand Conclave, along with NBA Legend Dominique Wilkins, Football retiree Ray Lewis, ex-NBA Players Lawyer Billy Hunter, and ESPN Reporter Steven A. Smith. Honorary... meaning, they didn't pledge and "got in" simply because of who they are; a practice often done by fraternities to boost their popularity.
Although he obviously did not pledge (memberz process that didn't involve pledging is called "skating") to become an Omega, we must realize Mfume must've felt he made his share of offeringz to the Boule' when he was the President and CEO of the NAACP — that's National Association for the Advancement of CERTAIN People as well as a member of the Prince Hall Masonz!
We don't have the exact date as to when the Boule' accepted him in, but I'm guessing it was after July 2012. What we do know is he is now a member of the Boule' 3rd Chapter, Gamma, in Baltimore, Maryland!
So, here's the criteria, most Boule' memberz are of the "elite", successful group. As Cokely puts it, "Yes the Boule' is in your town!" Anywhere there are prominent professional blacks, chances are they're in the Boule'!
It must be also noted we wouldn't even be talking about this were it not for Brotha Cokely. His tireless dedication and research has allowed the masses of Afrikan people to now know the truth of which the Boule' has pledged to never let you know — who they protect (find the meaning of their logo in part 2). RIP Cokely (June 17, 1952 - April 11, 2012)
We have the roster up to 1994 which includes 101 chapterz. As of the last update, it is now 2016, and although we don't have the latest roster list, I'm sure there are quite a few more; some say memberz are over 5000 now.
Next piece, we will elaborate on the symbolizm behind their logo, their colorz, the origin of college fraternities and sororities and the close relation to demonic masonry. Continue to seek knowledge and we shall find. LIK SHOT!!
ABOUT THE BOULE'...
"Collectively, all 5000+ memberz make up the wealthiest group of black men on the planet -- and to think, none are working in the interest of Afrikan people; but, rather, gets a kick out of holding YTs penis as he pisses on people of color..."

• As I looked over your article I realized that you have never worked a hard day in your life. Meaning that you have never worked for anything that is meaningful to you. You take what you think is correct information of these great organizations and just casually treat the shields as if it is a game. You attempt to mix and match symbols, numbers, names, images to what you think is the truth about BGLO's. I'm also surprised at you being a so called X Alpha that you did not go in depth to the real reason why the first black fraternity was founded and ever how. You go to great lengths to bash, ridicule, misinterpret and inform information on the other BGLO's. You claim you got information from an X Sigma, however misinterpretations, un-truths and lies are what you got. And the same incorrect misinterpretations were done for the others. Yes the fraternities and sororities have minor differences, but there are more similarities then you could imagine. Each is connected by design, and you my good friend have wondered into dangerous and unknown territory. You are tampering with things that have touched the lives of many great people in meaningful ways. You do not have the right or privilege to talk about any ones shield as if was a play toy. My brother you need to beware of the danger you have put yourself in and truth be told, you are on the list. And if you don't know what I'm talking about, figure it out yourself. It does not matter that I was initiated way before you, but you can believe that I know much more information about the fraternities and sororities then you will ever know. There is no way that you can do full research on the shields because so much information has been passed done orally form generation to generation. However, some of this information stopped being passed down in the 90's. You are only a recipient of what was passed to us from older members and what we recreated for you. With that said, the best thing for you to do is to go away quietly and live you life like other so called X members have done and have stayed out of trouble. You have disrespect for rules, regulations, policies, procedures, protocols and traditions. While you are ahead it would be wise to write about something else then to tamper with the unknown. For future reference 95% of black people in this country and the world who fault great causes, made great achievements, created a better living environment for you came form BGLO's by design. 95% of Black Americans who are movers, creators, leaders, achievers are form BGLO's, and please don't ever for get it. With that said; nothing is never appreciated without hard work and mental stamina.

M'BWEBE'S RESPONSE: Ummm, if this is supposed to "scare" me with your subliminal threats, I am not moved, nor will waver. I'm the first to say I do not have all the information on the use of symbolz on frat and sorority shieldz, and like the confusionz of religion, what one "interprets" as you say, can be different from another--I'll grant you that. However, there are too many "coincidences" in the use of symbolz I've found and if it's anything I've learned from Steve Cokely is not to believe in coincidences. You may be "old school frat" and may be under the delusional spell of American-Afrikan achievement via BGLOs, but from where I stand, there's a whole lot of SHIT BGLOs have been part of that far outweighs these minimal feats you speak of. You are correct, I do NOT have respect for ANY organization that parades as one for the enlightenment and socio-, political, and spiritual advancement of Afrikan people. And as said in part 3 of my series on the Boule', I am not going to mimic the noodle-back attempt at "blowing the whistle" by DuBois and Carter G. Woodson and instead honor the spirit of George G.M. James. And trust, I do not stand alone! So your "threats" are heard, but I have our Afrikan Ancestorz to answer to. You, who prefer your greek allegiance over Afrikan, don't come close to consideration!
• My parents are on this (Boule' Roster) list and I grew up with the children of many others on this list as well. For some reason-or for HIS own reasons-THE MOST HIGH GOD has always kept me for .his own and guided me away from continuing the "legacies" I have been rooted in, from Jack&Jill, to AKA (Kappa father), to The Links and the Boule` . Thank you for aiding my quest to learn the truth in the light of knowledge, for surely I was blinded but now I see! I just hope my people didn't do no sacrifices! They not THAT rich so I'm hoping that means they didn't go that far! I've always been the dreaded black sheep and now I know why. Thanks again brother your sister,

• You seem to have put a lot of time and energy into TRYING to discredit the Elite Eight Black Greek Letter Organizations. My question to you is what's your point??? You say The Elite Eight, now the Divine Nine, are NOT socio-economic groups looking to advance African Americans and positively impact our communities, yet they've done so much. Instead of spending your time trying to bash these groups why don't you do something to assist the Men of Phi Beta Sigma and their Sigma Beta Club where they mentor and gives thousands in scholarship money. Why don't you donate to Zeta Phi Beta's Stork's Nest organization, which assist young single mothers and educate them about child care. Or your time could go towards shedding light on the Alpha Kappa Alpha's Emerging Young Leaders program where they mentor and teach young girls (starting at 6th grade) how to be a leader in their community. Maybe you can have more of a positive impact if you-wait. I only ran across this site because i was looking for an domestic violence prevention organization that the ladies of (MY greek letter organization) and the Men of Omega Psi Phi can partner with. This site is a waste of my time and briefly distracted me from my goal which is community outreach. Try focusing your energies on something positive and uplifting instead of trying to tear down. Proud of my Fraters & Sorors!

M'BWEBE'S RESPONSE: And you are entitled to your opinion (distracted or not).
I must say though, you fail to see the larger picture. True, these organizationz have their "fair share" of charity work, but the fact they do this under the banner of culture bandits is the issue!
Ask yourself, if the Ku Klux Klan started allowing non-white memberz to join and they conducted similar charity efforts, do you see yourself participating? If you know the history of the KKK, I would hope not. But then again, maybe I shouldn't assume.
All these charitable works are good, but what's missing is the fact these Black organizationz suffer from an identity crisis! Many Black greeks don't realize there was NOT a harmonious relationship our Afrikan Ancestorz had with the greeks. They, along with the Persianz, Romanz, and countless otherz were invaderz, murdererz, and plagiarist's of Afrikan culture AND her people--how you think most of us got here to America?!!? I invite you to read, 'When Knowledge Became Kryptonite".
BGLOs are "supposed" to represent the Talented 10th--the best our people have to offer, yet we're still choosing out of ignorance to be any and everything else under the Sun EXCEPT Afrikan! BGLO memberz comprise of a class of American-Afrikanz (I say that for a reason: Afrikan is the subject or base, 'American' is the place we live: I offer to read: 'American-Afrikan vs. African-American') who have the highest career advancement and earning potential, yet may be just as ignorant about our historical relationship to the world as the rest of us who live in financial and educational poverty in our "ghetto's".
It's this ignorance (conscious or unconscious--because although many don't even know history, we ALL feel the effects of racizm/global white supremacy), that allowz BLGOs to exist and it never be questioned why an American-Afrikan Sorority would have a white woman on their shield (Delta Sigma Theta who has a pirated version of the original Goddess of Wisdom "Nut" or "Neit" and instead has the white impostor Minerva); why another would have an actual Skull and Crossed-bones on theirz (Sigma Gamma Rho), showing a connection to Skull&Bones at Yale; why the frat I was once a member of (Alpha Phi Alpha) would use the term "Sphinx" (who's definition has nothing at all to do with Afrika where it sits in front of the Pyramidz) instead of it's original name, "Her Em Akhet"; why the term "Mentor" is used when describing youth apprenticeship not knowing who Mentor really was: a pedophile (read: Jegna vs. Mentor); and how oxymoronic it is for BGLO graduates to wear an 'Kente' Stole with 'Greek' letterz!
You ask what's the point? In the ancient dayz of the Nile Valley of Kemet (erroneously called Egypt), "Ignorance is a Sin" was written on Pyramidz and other structures throughout. Our Ancestorz thrived on knowing thyself--hence whey they're still revered today! However, today, ignorance is bliss because the less we know of ourselves, the more we try to mimic our oppessor (read, 'Ignoring History Perpetuates the Myth of White Supremacy'). Perhaps you don't mind remaining ignorant. You can bet whitefolk certainly don't!
So in closing, I don't expect you to respond, nor to even look at any of the links I attached. But I do challenge you to exercise your mind and overstand the cycle IS being broken, Afrikan people are waking up knowing you can still do charity works under Afrikan named, symboled, and missioned organizationz as a more effective alternative. I mean, is charity work more beneficial when bring a man fish or teaching him how to fish?
When you have Afrikan-centered and ran organizationz, the one's served won't have to worry about being Blacked-out through whitewash; won't be bombarded with white corporate sponsorship who have little-to-no interest in the advancement of our people but rather focus on the insurmountable wealth we give freely simply because we do not know (or value) our wealth; and truly gives us a future; more precisely, an independent one!
My apologies for the history lesson. I hope you find it of some use for your intellectual growth
• Dude it's people like you that give Fraternities and Sororities bad names. You sit here and put info about black greeks from roots that were not thought of when these fraternities and sororities were founded. It's sad to know that there is someone out here still doing stupid stuff like this. We learn what we learn and it's from the beginning our our history. I have been a Sigma for 12 years and a Mason for 8 and I have heard this and I have heard that and I have done my research as well. Please sit down somewhere and stop trying to break up what brotherhood black greeks have. None one pledges and sit and say well I wonder what the roots of Phi Beta Sigma or Zeta Phi Beta are. All they know is that the principles that they are built on and that Culture,Service and Humanity. I'm so sick of hearing from people like you. If it's not we are buying friends it's people like you who are digging to find info on black greeks to try to get others to dislike them. There are 9 black greeks within the divine 9 and all 9 are based off of great things including there founders. Maybe that life is not for you. Maybe you tried to pledge and couldn't get in so you decided to make sure no one else would want to. Or maybe you were picked on by people in the fraternities and took a vow to ruin them, whatever the case may be it's cool. You need to chill out with you posted lies. Phi Beta Sigma Winter 99 UNO!!!!!

M'BWEBE'S RESPONSE: Give frats and sororities a bad name? Good! But that's not really my reason, my reason is to inform, it just so happenz their foundation and list of allies have proven to be counterproductive to the liberation of Afrikan people.
If current memberz take offense, I can understand why, but in the same breath, can't, because most of the original 8 pan-HELL-enic group are approaching 100 yearz old, which meanz the inception happened way before you and I were even born. I say this 'cause hedz like yourself seem to be so emotionally tied to something you were not around when the Boule' (1904), then Alpha (1906) and so on were founded.
You can call what I do -- researching history -- stupid; it just tellz me the kind of person I'm dealing with. You havin' been a member of the Masonz, you should know what you are taught in the beginning is minimal, if not deceiving (then again, maybe not, depending on what kind of mason you are: york, scottish, prince hall and the degree level you're at). Any 30+ degree mason willing to tell you will confirm the first 29 degreez are lies and you're informed of this come degree 30.
Not that its my life's work, but it is part of my ambition to inform AFRIKAN people on the numerous organizationz that were founded to keep us disunited (black greek-lettered organizationz included). Whether you believe or not is on you. If you feel what I revealed in my articles are lies, tell me exactly which one's are -- and of course, you gotta come with historical fact as a rebuttal and not emotionally-laced responses. That is an open challenge I welcome... But I overstand if this is something you cannot handle (as you stated how sick you are of hearing from people like me -- which, btw, I did not contact you, you contacted me!)
Am I against memberz of these organizationz, not the one's who are unaware; but those who do come 'cross the info regarding the Boule' and choose to ignore or disgree with no historical research to combat these findingz, yes! It's 2011 and it's no coincidence Afrikan people around the globe are STILL at bottom levelz in all realmz of life. Besides, if you're familiar with George GM James', 'Stolen Legacy', you should/would know, "greek mythology is STOLEN Afrikan History", so why are y'all walking around callin' yourselves "greek" when history proves the greeks came into Afrikan as PIRATES, PEDOPHILES, MURDERERZ, and PLAGIARIST'S?!!?
BTW, I pledged and crossed in 1991 homeboy, so all that spit you said at the end is mute. And even if it were true, what does my personal connection have to do with the reason they were founded in the first decade of 1900?!!? Remove the personal emotionz. I overstand that's not an easy task, but if you truly stand for truth, you will realize truth will challenge some of the thingz you hold dear. Before all this, I loved alpha phi alpha. It was an enormous task for me to leave the frat, but I realized my Afrikan Ancestry was more important; maybe or maybe that's not important to you...
WIth that said, I'm NOT gonna chill on posting truth, but you're welcome to stay in your fantasy world of Afrikanz trying to emulate their oppressor all you want!
