You made your voices heard and coca Cola responded.

In a controversial decision today, Coca Cola cited "scoring discrepancies" in its decision to name both the Tau Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha and Epsilon Chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha as 1st place winners in the Ryan Cameron/Sprite Step Off Finals held in Atlanta last weekend.

As you recall, the all-white Epsilon chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha out of Arkansas, took 1st place in the majority black competition at the Atlanta civic Center.

This video sparked a storm of controversy as soon as it hit the nets. Black sorors complained bitterly that MTV (and their sponsor, Coca Cola which distributes Sprite) wanted a step crew that was more in line with their targeted demographics.

It was whispered in certain circles that the decision had already been made about the winner before the competition had even began.

Well, to quiet such rumors (and to appease the media who began making inquiries), Coca-Cola announced that due to a scoring discrepancy in the sorority results, the second place winners, the Tau Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha, Inc. from Indiana University, would be recognized as co-winners and awarded the same $100,000 prize as Zeta Tau Alpha.

I don't have to tell you that the Alpha Kappa Alpha girls are black.

Here's my take on the subject: Coca-Cola shouldn't have caved in to the pressure. The Zeta Tau Alpha girls should have been the sole winners because they stayed true to the historical traditions of stepping and call & response, while the AKA chicks acted like the Step Off was a dance competition.

Check out the AKA's "Rhythm Nation" inspired routine after the break.

    MTV does not like black people. I don't doubt that the Zeta Tau Alpha girls were favored to win. They did step well though, if non black people do anything half as good as blacks in that type of arena they will win. America's Best Dance Crew is another example.

  • intensemocha

    I HIGHLY DOUBT THEY WOULD ADMIT AN ERROR IF IN FACT THERE WASN'T ONE

    THEY JUST DIDN'T EXPECT TO BE CALLED OUT ON IT-SO NOW THEY ARE COVERING THEIR AZZEZ

    TRUST ME IF THEY FELT FIRM IN THEIR DECISION THEY WOULD HAVE STUCK TO IT-AND WE ALL KNOW HOW MANY BLACK FOLKS DRINK THEIR PRODUCT

    SO THEY WANT TO SAVE FACE

  • Quitta

    I agree with you Intense

  • Daisy

    I knew you would do an updated post Sandra :popcorn:

  • Tink Tink

    Looking at the two routines the AKA's deserve first....the steps were all in synch and they were MUCH smoother than the all white group....so I have to agree with Raven in saying that b/c they did ALMOST as well is them I'm guessing that's why they won first

  • KaraZ

    Sandra on the video you posted on Monday, I heard distinctly heard someone say these chicks were going to win like a minute or two into their borrowed routine with lack of precision or originality (which were some of the criteria they were judged on)... so I tend to believe that these white chicks were chosen as winners to fit a script...

  • sexywitwhatigot

    in all honesty, i think the white girls did better. they did more step moves than the akas. it's true, we started it, but whomever coached them, coached them well. that is all.

  • QuettaV

    Coco Cola and MTV can go kick rocks and smash brick on their foreheads!!!! They knew what they were doing!!!

  • dallas214

    I gotta agree with Sandra...those white girls in my opinion were much better...My whole thing is, had it been another black sorrority to beat the AKA's, then there wouldnt be an issue. The fact they were WHITE bruised a few egos..But I guess everyone wins in the end.

  • J2201987

    I was shocked to hear that an non-black step team won in the first place, but I guess that's me just perpetuating stereotypes. It's definitely a case of saving face, knowing how much ceo/execs have invested in this.

    @Raven - I though I was the only one that noticed that on ABDC (an all black/predominantly black dance group has never won or made the top two, other than status quo).

    ---------------------------------

    I totally agree. You could hear the steps and beats from the Zeta the other group AKA wasnt strong in their movements. They took their routine from that Beyonce performance off one of those award shows.

    True the Zeta lacked a little creativity but they came hard. You could FEEL them stepping the other groups I stopped watchiing becuz they bored me

    I can't see the video, big brother has decided I will only get a white box.

    But in reference to the ABDC comparison, honestly I don't think it has anything to do with what race the groups are on that show. The groups are different styles, I've been a fan & watched since season 1 and the BBoy crews are what seems to dominate. I mean really, they had a Vogue group on there for pete's sake so I don't think they're really being biased. I haven't really seen any all black groups that were worthy of winning in the past episodes, granted some have gone home a little early imo but hardly was there a group minus Strikers Allstars who deserved to make it to the end, btw Strikers perform all over saw them at a step show last weekend and they will be in Stomp The Yard too, so groups are getting exposed. I don't think we can sit up here and even say Jabawokeez do it "almost as good as blacks" those boys are great, as well as We Are Heroes, my fave, I mean dancing is such a universal art form I don't think we can even compare this with the traditions of stepping. :shrugs:

    The white sorority did nothing more than mimic black greeks in their routine. All those steps are done normally by Deltas and Ques.

    IT WAS CUTE TO A DEGREE BUT IT WAS BLATANTLY OBVIOUS ALL OF THE HISTORICAL MOVES USED BY STEP TEAMS/DANCE TEAMS THAT BEIGE FOLKS USED TO OPENLY MOCK AND THREATEN TO BOYCOTT MTV WHEN BLACK FOLKS DID IT-THEY WERE DOING

    I don't think it's a conspiracy either, but it makes me think. When something is "black" it's exclusive to me it holds more value and its almost sacred. When non black people do what we do and then prop themselves up for it, it waters it down and makes it common. Should we not retain a lil bit of black culture? Text-language, that's cool, ebonics bad. Hip Hop - Bad, Hip Pop - Good. Soul Food - that ish will kill ya, Southern food - Our special guest today is Paula Deen. Electric Slide - Ghetto, Line Dance - Awesome. Everything that parallels black culture is touted to be better than the original. I don't mind when non blacks do us well, but then all the competitions and TV shows don't recognize us because they want us to believe anything we can do they can do better.

Static Quo was good and that stepping crew but other than that there really hasn't been a GREAT black crew on the show. Do you see who they picked from the South this year compared to the East and West? They know those crews wont win the whole thing.

    Something was bought to my attention. These are Greek fraternities and sororities. Why when blacks decided to throw our hats in the ring didn't we come up with African fraternities and sororities? If we really wanted to stand apaprt and be our own why wouldn't we conform to OUR ancestory instead of the Greeks. I don't know any black Greeks. I by no means am being sarcastic or funny, I really want to know why we didn't adopt the african heritage instead of greek.I went to college as an adult and never pledged anything but to members that are a part of a chapter, can you clarify?

    Exactly. Take a look at Eminem. He is a good rapper, but there are black rappers far greater than him that will never see even a dab of his extreme success. I remember Bill Maher stated that although Em was telling tragic stories like black rappers he still was just so much more prolific. WOW. So I guess Chuck D, Nas, Tupac,KRS 1 and them were just running their mouths, huh?

    don't hate on em; the industry is what it is. there are many great rappers who don't see the light of day and have to do underground or internet. just like r&b and other types. there are many great athletes who never make the pros. it's not so much about skill as what sells (see beyonce). white kids like em and the boy can flow. white kids buy cds at full price. at least i understand what the F em is talking about.

She said they will never know why there is STEPPING and what it means in terms of history. She felt somekind away about them winning. I will forward this update

    @Sponge I would want somebody with more than a "decent" routine to win black or white.

    Something was bought to my attention. These are Greek fraternities and sororities. Why when blacks decided to throw our hats in the ring didn’t we come up with African fraternities and sororities? If we really wanted to stand apaprt and be our own why wouldn’t we conform to OUR ancestory instead of the Greeks. I don’t know any black Greeks. I by no means am being sarcastic or funny, I really want to know why we didn’t adopt the african heritage instead of greek.I went to college as an adult and never pledged anything but to members that are a part of a chapter, can you clarify?
    ___________________________________

    Honestly, gypsyeyes when you learn your sorority/fraternity history this is never discussed. This has certainly crossed my mind as well. I think that some black folks in those days( we were founded in 1908), while very proud of being black did not delve into their "African" side as much especially when creating organizations. So since the white greek system was in place, they created a black greek system that we still have today. It's really no answer, at least I don't have one. lol.

    :offtopic: It's officially over for photographer Derrick Jones and actress Malinda Williams. After marrying in August of 2008, the couple decided to separate in October of 2009, and is currently going through the process of divorce.
    This is a sad situation considering both individuals entered the relationship with children, but D-Nice says that, "I ask that our privacy be honored during this extremely personal time. I thank my family and fans for their endless support."

    This is Malinda’s second divorce…previously married to Mekhi Phifer.

    i too think the white chicks did better than the AKA's. the crowd was into it from start to finish.

    the guy you heard say 'these bitches are gonna win,' referring to the white chicks was just a spectator. i'm sure after sitting through the routines and from what he had seen and audience reaction, he too knew they were going to win. but i dont think he "knew" they were going to win from tv or script purposes.

    the aka's stepped better than we've seen before but they didn't win this competition.

    What bothered me about the routine was their body language. One of the girls in the front, keep popping her neck, and rolling her head, Like "oh no you didn't" Like, that's how black girls move, so let me do that. I remember, oneday I was in the nail shop and the two white girls came in. One of them, said real loud "bitch hell nah why dis fool gon say he ain't paying for my nails!" Then she started smacking when she talked. Her friend was like, um don't do that please. I just looked at her like Bytch is that what you think we do!

    _______________________________________

    BLOGGER/ATTORNEY/AND TALK SHOW HOST ATTORNEYMOM HAS A MESSAGE FOR THE HATERS

    "
    This is for all of my Fanenemies:

    This is the last time that I will address any of you, unless you come to Character Corner.

    Many of you stated that I am unprofessional for visiting and commenting on blogs. Many of you have stated that you would not hire me to represent me on any matter.

    Many of you would not hire me because you cannot afford me. Any client that I have represented, judge I appeared before and corporation I worked at respects my work ethic and the quality of lawyer that I am. These are the opinions that count, not yours. None of your comments can take that from me.

    Let’s talk about professionalism. Does any of these blogs serve as official corporate board rooms or courtrooms? Of course not. They serve as forums of entertainment. If anyone takes a gossip blog serious, then please get your head examine.

    Now let’s talk about professionalism as it relates to you haters. Many of you state that you are at work while commenting on Sandra Rose. Most reputable companies have internet usage policies which set forth the conditions for using the internet during work hours. Many employers track your internet usage and know what sites you are visiting and how long you were on a particular site.

    It would seem that some of you will be either terminated or written up soon because of your continued violation of your employer’s internet usage policy. How can you focus on your job if you are always reading and writing comments on blogs all day? Now if you have some low paying administrative job with very little work responsibilities, then that would explain why you stay on the internet all day.

    Now if you are using your cell phone to visit blogs during work hours, then please review your company’s handbook on personal calls during work hours. I am sure surfing the net on your cell phone could constitute as a personal call.

    As far as Monster.com: First of all, I will not pay a professional employment site to post my resume. Monster.com has several reputable corporate jobs posted on the site. So I don’t quite understand why anyone wouldn’t post their resume on Monster.com. Blank stare. That is just one forum for getting your resume out there. The other is networking and signing up with reputable head hunters. Once again, this demonstrates the level of ignorance and inexperience of the crowd on Sandra Rose.

    Unlike many of you, I do not hide behind my screen name. My screen name does not serve as an alter ego. I mean what I write and I write what I mean. And I stand by what I write. I am against ignorance and racism so I write about my aversion toward both.

    I visit Sandra Rose’s blog because I get a lot of traffic from her blog. She allows me to post links to my blog so I can make some change when you visit. I receive the most traffic from her blog. In order to receive traffic from another blog, you have to comment on that particular blog. So I do.
    Since I have made several comments about Monica, I have witnessed a growing hostility toward me.

    These “roastings” or “e-furnerals” have become extremely mean-spirited. It is always the same group of people. By you continuously attacking me professionally without knowing anything about me, only further demonstrates the level of intelligence or the e-bullies that comment on SR.

    As far as my Youtube videos, thanks for watching.

    Yesterday, you reminded me that I am an eagle and it is time to take my rightful place. Eagles are not meant to fly with pigeons and chickens because their flying altitude is too low. So I take my rightful place as an Eagle and am leaving the pigeons and chickens behind. I apologize to God and myself for acting like a pigeon and chicken when I was born to be an Eagle.

    Thank you all for being the wind beneath my wings. Now it is time to fly higher."

    Some industry peeps are beginning to whisper about Mo constantly going back and forth with that idiot on Twitter. It's so beneath her. It's like she's obsessed with him instead of the other way around.

  • Shauny

    Brownsugar - it isn't her post on his blog that is ammusing, it's the readers comments that followed.

    I may be older than yall Raven and leap but I would go even further and say late 80s through late 90s. Man some of the best moments of my life and the music during those times are life the soundtrack. The hip hop and R&B was the bizness back then...now not so much.

    If BIGs songs still can be played and kill stuff out now, what if he was still here....CRAZY!!!!! And you know what...I think him and Rick Ross would KILL a song for the big boys because like him or not, Rick is nice on the mic.

  • commonswifey

    I really enjoyed my sorors routine better,it was more original and engaging.I do think they should have turned the music down so u could actually hear the steps

  • Shauny

    Sandra - I wouldn't blame the industry people. I can't believe she gives Charles so much shine in what he says about her but she's human and sometimes people let words hurt and that's why she's responding. I wish she wouldn't respond either. Even when he said he was done she STILL responded with comments that probably will make him be like now I said I was going to stop BUT since you still wanna say something......and keep it going.

    @ kimmy: Please do not copy & paste comments from other blogs. I will overlook it this time since AM is still a member of this board. :ban:

  • Cinnamon Kisses

    @ Shuany....I promise I said that just thee other day about 90's music. I was watching videos and all kinds of stuff was coming on.....SWV...xscape....total....jade....r.kelly(pervert azz) mannnnn I miss the 90's

  • VIBABY

    :cosign: @ Shauny I wish she didnt respond to him in the first place. Twitter is for your fans, block/ignore the rest. I would say I wouldnt mind if Rocko found him, but I will not encourage black on black violence or violence towards gays.....

    @VI- you aint got no sense.

    He is really taking things too far. Threatening to put Aunties address out there. He is playing with fire and we know that sugar does burn. two snaps in a Z formation.

    Dang people can't take jokes these days. I have been the butt of many and if you can't take a ribbin every now and then stay away from folks.

    :rofl: @ gypsy...... yeah I think this whole dayum thing has went overboard. SMH....he talkin bout calling the feds and some mo shyt. WTH..... :???:

  • leapyearpisces

    Raven and Shauny:

    I will hit you on the flipside about the music...YES, I agree. I want to say more, but I got caught up reading that dissertation/thesis/declaration of independence that AM posted and now it is time for me to go. :cya:

  • leapyearpisces

    Oh before I go, I am going to put my two cents about this whole AM issue before I go [not like my opinion means anything]. I never participated in the efurnerals etc. because even though I found it entertaining I also found it mean and I actually felt sorry for AM, but I realize this is the issue that probably alot of people have with her which is be who you say you are even online..don't flip flop...I was going to be neutral until she made this statement:

    Eagles are not meant to fly with pigeons and chickens because their flying altitude is too low. So I take my rightful place as an Eagle and am leaving the pigeons and chickens behind.

    ************************************************************
    :nono AM with all due respect I am not going to let that one fly dear... I've been seeing your post for four years now and you are the 1st to get bout it bout with somebody then want to throw the bible at them when they get into your arse

    You can't do that and that is why people have backlashed against you. Pick a side either you a gansta or a saint, but you can't be both.

    Let this be a lesson that hypocrisy does not have a place offline nor online.

  • Daisy

    Monica just tweeted for everybody to block Charles

    AM apologized to me and I accepted her apology

    one day black folks will stop laying down to let the pink people walk all over us, mock up and steal our shit.

  • va_shawty

    Congratulations Sorors! Skee Wee!!!!

  • KrayZKat

    MistressD, I hate to sound negative, but don't count on it. We've gladly handed over every innovation, including rap, and now stepping. Maybe I should have more faith in my people, but historically, there's a pattern. Again, forgive my negativity. :crying1:

    I'd like to see the other groups performance (or at least that of the AKA's), so that I can say whether or not the WC deserved to win...the performance was good, & the crowd loved them so at this point I'm not sure if the win is legit...

  • Indigo1969

    First, why do we as black people always tearing each other down. This all black sorority did as much stepping and dancing as the all white sorority. There was no differenceexcept for color. Now how there was an ALL white step team from a sorority that is an African American influenced organization, I don't know. The Greeks let that one slip. And yes, stepping is a "black" thing but golf was white and they embraced Tiger (mabe not now...lol), same goes for other predominently white activities. they original winners were good but I do agree with them when they say they want to promote in nationally then they should promote the original people first, then segregate. Workrd in the past, keep playing it that way.

  • http://dirtywhorelebrity.com/ MistressD

    KrayZKat --> no need to apologize, you ain't speaking nothing but the truth. We tear each other down, black men hate on sista's, and we continue to let the pink people aid in (or should I say "speed-up") our destruction.

    Bird Says:

    That’s too bad they bowed to the pressure. If white girls are not allowed to win they should not be allowed to enter. As for the 2nd place girls, all I can say about them is they REALLY love their hair. Are short haired or natural haired girls even allowed in their sorority.
    ___________________________________________________________

    I have often wondered that too! Is long hair or weaves a criteria for that sorority?

    Not a shock that the white girls team stepped hardest, white chicks know how to clog, it's like in our blood or something. Unfair advantage. Racism.

    Hey hey hey! Don't be gettin mad at me. Hair swinging and messing seem to be an integral part of their routine. I was ashamed for them. There were no girls that looked like you on that stage. Are yall allowed to step with them? Since you are all of those things desribed above maybe you need to holla at your girls about doing all that hair sh*t in their step routines. It looks stupid. Am I the only one that noticed it? Is it that common? They were doing it in Drumline too. It's silly.

    Who has cyber bullied attorneymom to the point that she had to write all that? Are problem clique's forming again? Do yall think you are internet bloods or crips or something? Not cute guys. Especially if what she said is true which is that a bunch of administrative assistants have the nerve to be going at an attorney. I'm an admin myself and I got where she was coming from and was not offended. Stop trippin.

    Ryan just said on the radio that one of the YT girls has been stepping for 16yrs in a UNITY step show with the AKAs if anybody still cares

    @ ggouch: That's what happens when you marry based off of looks. It never lasts. I think Malinda would be much more successful dating women. :coffee:

  • Daisy

    @Bird Not trying to be funny but I dont think you can BULLY a BULLY. Nobody thinks they are bloods/crips and nobody is in a crew/clique. I never had a personal issue with AM and we have made peace so I am good.

    @Sandra All I know is that is what Ryan said so maybe he was ref. to their leader/teacher :shrug:

  • Shauny

    Daisy girl let it go. I decided yesterday that I wasn't evev going to entertain the subject anymore. No matter how OFF the comments are

  • http://myspace.com/thegameoncw Bird

    Miss Daisy,

    I didn't know why attorneymom posted that comment, but it sounded like she had been cyber jumped. We all disagree from time to time and I really don't see a problem with that. You, attorneymom, intensemocha and a few others go hard at times. I won't go so far as to call you bullies. But if attorneymom says something confrontational to you I wouldn't expect multiple people to start blasting her. That's what I was saying. I'm glad yall squashed it though.

    More importantly, will you be in Charlotte this weekend?

  • Kcalvin2002

    I am sorry, but I disagree!!!! Did you people even watch the entire viedo down by the AKAs???? I mean they tossed a girl and did flips, in addition they had ORIGINAL steps!!! I am from the south, and I rep DST, so in the south step competitions go hard....I also went to U of A and those girls only re-enacted what they saw on Youtube!!!! Those AKAs were better, HANDS DOWN!!!! It was not even a tie, the AKAs simply beat them!!!!!! Just my two cents...
