Disband North Texas Sweethearts

Although once an upstanding organization the North Texas Sweethearts have exhibited racial discrimination and hazing. Not only have various events prior to my recruitment and invitation into this organization occurred but recently there was an incident in which new members of the organization had a video on Instagram were there were racial epithets derogatory to African Americans as well as facebook and twitter post that also contain homophobic slurs. The new members where failed to be properly vetted by our Human Resources officer due to favoritism. These events and previous ones have been swept under the rug by the current officer board and those of the past, but injustice here is injustice everywhere and being silent is siding with the side of the oppressor. After that incident we attended our weekly organization meeting where we had the chance to participate in an open forum style discussion to which members of the organization preceded to repeatedly utter racial slurs that were derogatory towards African Americans and demonize me and fellow members. This toxic environment shouldn't be experienced by anyone of any race or sexual orientation and shouldn’t be allowed to go unnoticed at a school so culturally diverse as UNT or at college campus for that matter. Let’s ban together MEAN GREEN NATION and hold all UNT organizations accountable and disband ANY organization that discriminates or hazes based on RACE, GENDER, SEXUAL IDENTITY, SEXUAL IDENTITY, RELIGION, SEX, DISABILITY, AGE, OR DISCIPLINE.

We won’t tolerate racism or hazing in our community, please sign this petition in support of holding the student involved in hazing/discriminatory activities accountable. 

Organization demographics after researching the demographics of the specifically North Texas Sweethearts it was found that four students who identity as black. The organization is majority caucasian, causing members of color to assimilate to the majority ethnicity.
