Anyone who knows me know I cannot stand the depictions of Black Greek letter organizations pledging process displayed in movies and televisions shows. It’s usually over the top or not at all accurate. Yet I still give them a chance and watch them anyway and get mad that I wasted my time watching the travesty fall apart on my television screen.
