2. Category of problem: discrimination
3. Level of problem: local
4. This article concerns: Sorority members spoke up about their sorority sisters rejecting a well qualified candidate base on race.
5. Importance/affect on families/individuals:
This affects all the young men and women that tried to get into the different sororitys and fraternitys over the years. The article states that there has not been a single black male or female in a sorority or fraternity since 2003. That's ten years! Rejection doesn't make any one feel good about themselves. Add discrimination to the mix and that's got to be an awful feeling. The girls that spoke out in the sorority were affected obivousely enough to say something. They think it's wrong but they don't know how to fix it. We'll until it gets fixed, it is gong to continue to affect other people at that school as well. I'm sure it affected this particular girls whole family.
