Although once an upstanding organization the North Texas Sweethearts have exhibited racial discrimination and hazing resulting in the ostracization and mental , physical , and emotional danger and distress of a veteran, paid  African American  NT Sweethearts member/UNT student Whitley Smith. Whitley has been subjected to group bullying, false accusations and racial microaggression discouraging her identity as a black women. Recently Whitley has been banned from the  Sweethearts  winter formal that she assisted in planning following a series of false and baseless accusation from a group of Sweethearts that continuously bully and show aggression towards Whitley. Whitley has expressed to the Sweethearts leadership board her personal feelings of being in danger because of the vicious false accusatory practices of the students involved. Whitley’s cry for help and expression of feeling she is in danger  wasn’t recorded by Dean of Students or Student Activities.  Let’s ban together GREEN NATION and lift up our sister during this stressful time 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 activities accountable.

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