When Coca-Cola overturned the judge’s decision to make the all white Epsilon Chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha the sole winners of the Ryan Cameron/Sprite Step Off Championships held last weekend in Atlanta, the move raised larger questions of whether Coca-Cola caved under the pressure of being marked racists.

Here are a few comments on the decision from a white perspective found on a mixed message board:

*rolls eyes* Why won’t they let YT be great!!!!!! I swear black people won’t let white people have anything

So basically the black girls moaned and groaned and b*tched because they lost and tried to play the race card, and since it’s an all-black thing generally Coco-Cola caved in to avoid race sh*t. Pathetic. Black people need to stop blaming white people for their losses. N*GGAS YOU F*CKING LOST. THE CR*CKAS SHITTED ON YOU FOR NINE STRAIGHT MINUTES. It’s pathetic.

That’s so true, if only n*ggas could put all the bitching towards something of good use like Health care. But the things is the White Girls were scripted to win anyway, kinda like how they do the show made.

I don’t care how many n*ggers were complaining, the only reason they were complaining was because they got their asses handed to them by the white girls.

Because if that’s the case, all them bitches should have been expelled, because the black gorls were doing sexual movements too. Who determines what a sexual movement is? What degree of sexuality decides the point when the line is crossed. That’s a bunch of bullsh*t.

The fact is the blacks were mad that a white team came and served them, they felt they were entitled since stepping is a predominantly black “greek” (and I use that term loosely) function, they raised a fuss and a stink… they got some MORE negros to come in and b*tch over it, and they got them to do it. And it shouldn’t have been deserved. Watching both videos those cracka bitches went WAY harder.

The race card needs to be saved for sh*t that matters. Not dance competitions where some white girls with more rhythm and more pussy-popping then you show up.

As for the scripted part, I doubt that. Black people need to learn it’s not 1960 anymore. If you lose to a white person now…it’s because you lost.

    Just goes to show that you can say whatever you want while hiding behind a keyboard, I bet my paycheck none that left a comment would dare say it to our faces. Racism at it’s finest. Yes the white girls were good but when word got out that they were going to win before the competition started I understand why the beef is ongoing, it was not fair.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Qm2_ppqtZk missy

    There screen names offend me way more then their comments…And one of those comments could be from a black person for all we know…Some people say stuff for controversy..and it doesn’t shock me what they said…stereotypical answers… :coffee:

  • bigtyme

    this is typical on most message boards involving anything having to do with black people. take a second to read the comments at the bottom of stories on msn, yahoo or any other mainstream site a lot of the comments are horrendous and racist. people are hiding behind their computer. although i do see where they are coming from b/c whoever was given the award should have stayed the winner, but they took it too far…why spread and remind us of the hate on here?

  • Shauny

    I don’t think all of those comments were made by white people. No comment on this foolishness of a damn step show.

    My only complaint was them stealing moves from other sororites..so their lack of originality, I could give a rats ass if a white person steps and if they’re better then they just are.

  • http://myspace.com/thegameoncw Bird

    Uh, Sandra, if you wanted to show a differant perspective why did you only post comments from black people? It is clear white people didn’t post those comments.

    Why let you have anything when your thieving ass is going to steal it anyways.

    Compare the actions of YT to that of the whale that killed the trainer the other day. IT’S AN ANIMAL – IT MIGHT BE NICE FOR A WHILE, BUT IT’S IN THEIR NATURE TO DO WHAT THEY WERE BORN TO DO-DON’T BE DISAPPOINTED IF IT BITES YOU!

    *rolls eyes* Why won’t they let YT be great!!!!!! I swear black people won’t let white people have anything
    ———-

    White poeple don’t refer to themselves as YT. This comment was meant to be funny and actually is to me.

    2. Disciple of CHRISt

    NIGGAS YOU F*CKING LOST. THE CR*CKAS SHITTED ON YOU FOR NINE STRAIGHT MINUTES. It’s pathetic.
    ———-

    White people don’t refer to themselves as crackas and sh*tted on is a black slang term. Are young white kids talking like that now and I missed it?

    3. Blazed7’s comment could have been from a white person except they were down with the consipiracy theory which leads me to believe they are black.

    4. His Majesty- The Imperial Light of Heaven refers to the winner as cracka bitches who “served” the black girls.

    Can yall please tell me again how you could think these comments were written by white people? Because Sandra said so? You know she got jokes.

    I totally agree. Here’s my thing and I wont say anything else… Im tired of playing the race card. Im tired of hearing my people play the race card.

    Yes Coca Cola is a white company but the guy who pitched this idea? Was black. There wasnt a lot of soroities and faterniities that came to even try out!

    How many black companies (who are headed by black soro/frats leaders) has ever put on a show of this magnituide? Have ever said lets make a stepping competetion that is going to be felt all over the world and show them how ‘we’ do it and televise it on national tv?

    I cant stop laughing at the White people and their comments, if they are even really white people. I am an AKA and I also was so over the whole Sprite thing and I am glad this sh%t can be put to rest. I know sprite was over hearing it too. At the end of the day the White sorority was scripted to win becasue it makes for great reality TV, duh!!! It just back fired on them when black people started saying they were going to boycott Sprite.But glad my sorors can take that extra 50K and help the community!

    Darn! No, my brother will not be here and I tried to get him a gig too. Unfortunately none of the promoters I contacted even knew Pep had a show let alone knowing who my brother was to book him. It seems the show is just not that popular.

    For the record my brother is not a player. Jacque blew it big time if she is really interested in a man who is fiercely loyal to his woman. The Goddess is a homie from our small town and he lied about who Mya was so as not to put the real person he was talking about on blast.

    Yep we are living in a double standard, however this 2010 black people now make millions, are in politics and yes if nobody noticed we have a black president who is the head of this racist country. So what is the complaint??? We have opportunity, yep we have racism and it will always stay but on the contrary black people are just as racist as white people if not more because ANYTIME something has to do with white folks, we quick to throw the “Cracker” word out there with no hesitation at all, but if a white person throw the “nigga” word out all hell breaks lose.

    A lot of these comments could easily come from black people, especially the last one. Sounds like Sandra almost lol.
    The comment about ‘it aint 1960 anymore’ killed me.
    Anyway, when I watch steppin I wanna see steppin. There are too many dance competitions out there today, if the AKAs won it would send a clear message that the Step Off was a Dance Off and why not just go to ABDC for that? The YT chicks came correct, I actually watched their whole routine without getting ADD [amazing for me] and you saw the crowd, the crowd was going ape shit for them. Was that crowd white? Was that crowd hired by Coca Cola to perpetuate their Grand Conspiracy? lol. I think these white chicks step because it’s an amazing form of self-expression, exhilarating, and as a white person I must say that no one does passionate self-expression thru dance like Africans. When you are so infectious as a cultural you can’t always hate on other races for noticing, these girls were showing respect for the tradition and honoring something from black culture that they admire. This doesn’t mean white people will take over stepping. Shit, did white people take over rapping? Crumping? A few popular YTs in the bunch =/= Elvis level takeover. I’d be the first one to complain if that happened to stepping, but like someone else said “if white girls aren’t allowed to win, they shouldn’t be allowed to enter.” Whining about this makes people seem so small minded. And as for the argument that the white team ‘ripped off’ their routine from typical black greek routines…that’s easily said about basically any stepping routine if the steppers try to stay traditional. It’s sad that Coca Cola caved, it makes black people look like brats, when judging from the comments by majority black females on this website at least the decision Coca Cola made does not represent what black people wanted to see happen.

  • MistaO

    Many of you are clearly, and honestly clueless. It’s almost like a kind of wishful racial denial. And I know why, with so many “Something new” stories afoot, many of you just cant bring yourselves to believe the cold hard truth about how many whites view black people.

    If you don’t believe the comical posts Sandra put up, what then about what someone else has mentioned, the fact that read the comments on just about ANY story on any site that has someone Black in it. Racism and more specifically, hatred towards Black people is extremely palpable!

    It truly is unfortunate that many black people still refuse to even acknowledge the obvious.

    By the way, I don’t have an issue with the white girls winning but must mention the fact that the sisters in the TAU pic above are looking RIGHT!

    Especially the two on the left, wayy nice!!!

    Now I know many of yall probably from scummy areas where people don’t have any home training, but with all the Black people I’m around daily, I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve heard someone use it in the past YEAR! And I’m being very serious. Nobody I associate with use that word and if so, it’s usually in some sort of context.

    I get enough of this, “well you guys use so why can’t…..”, or from the typical sambo, “well why yall get mad when white people say it if you…..”

    You get my drift…It’s an old and pathetic “argument” used to enable them to get back to being able to freely insult Black people with the most onerous, insidious and despicable term ever used to describe a people.

    Yes, sometimes black people are too quick the throw the race card but personally, I’M MORE ANNOYED WITH WHITE PEOPLE THROWING THE REVERSE RACISM CARD! That is all :coffee:

  • ReadTheBlog

    :clap: Daisy, no we don’t have the power to be racist.

    This is why people should read more; they can start with looking up the meanings of racist, bigot, prejudice for clarification.

    On the radio here in Atlanta, Chili & Monica said that they didn’t vote for ZTA, their votes went to the AKA’s. I think the voting may have been rigged.

  • Man, I just don’t care™

    Y-t people always complaining. SMH.

  • pointhimout

    :yawn:

    we already expected this. why are the judges sharing who they voted for? who cares, the aka’s were just ok. ZTA outstepped them, face it. now will i go on a racist tirade? definitely not. how many judges were there? if there were 3 judges only, and 2 voted AKA, then we have an issue, but if you had 4 or more judges, their vote doesn’t mean the AKA’s should’ve won.

    ZTA deserved that, and they got it.

    I am so sick of this race card crap it is sickening to me… Maybe I have my head in the clouds but everything is not about race… As far as this step competition I have not payed that much attention to it so I can’t comment on it.

    Life’s bottomline is do as you what to be done to you! So if you don’t want anybody to discriminate against you dont discriminate against them!!!

    1. The USA was stolen from the Indians and they are forced to live in reservations. By now they are pretty much extinct.
    2. Black folks were brought over as slaves
    3. The whole Constitution was written for the white man and not the minorities which includes asian, latin, black, etc. We get addendums and shit

    WE ALL know that, also they created the system that we ALL have to live by from Credit, NCIC,Chex Systems, etc all these databases. And guess what its f**ked up towards us but the one thing I have learned if you understand the system you can use to your advantage. Just like Banks do, Obama change the law but guess what they went back to the drawing board and figured out how to by pass the sh!t.

    We now have resources available to us to make a change but in reality we don’t give sh!t about the change. White people if they don’t like something they will go ALL the white out, write letters, go to city hall, hold town meetings, go to court, write petitions until they get what they want. Thats what happen with Sandy Springs all these white folks got tired that fulton county wasn’t taking care of that district, so they united and made a city and now the collecting taxes, have they own police force that writes a shit load of tickets.

    Ever wonder why asian and latin community are starting to take over? Well they take care of one another. They buy from eachother, they use asian or latin real estate agent over another race. Now what do we do? I think if you take the NFL, NBA and Entertainment Industry together we probably have several billions, we could make a change, we could own a Blue Cross Blue Shield, a Microsoft, Bank of America or whatever controls this country but guess what all of us bright ones with degrees, and who did it on their own DON’T SHARE!! period!

    Another thing that I noticed to since someone said something about “Uncle Tom”. How is that if we get into it with each other we go all out and even kill eachother, but all these so called thugs, gangstas, don’t shit to the tax man, the can put a freeze on your account, GA Power that cuts off the power, Medic Aid that denies your claim. Or even at your job, you let your boss to crazy to you but Lil Ray Ray that may said something inappropriate you about rip his head off?

    We have become a society of convience and self, as long as it doesn’t affect me directly, I don’t care. And if it does affect me, I just go and complain but I don’t want to do anything because it could rock the cradle and mess up my little comfort zone.

    Until we place value on sh!t that matters, not rims, cars, hoes, strip clubs and start trying to take care of eachother meaning giving excellent service, make sure that we are better in whatever we do, and not just living of hype.

    My theory is these ZTA girls were taught all the steps by an AA person and Sprite/MTV for controversy sake/ratings thought it would look interesting to have YT girls come into a national step show marketed towards the Divine Nine and HBCUs and beat out all of the blacks sororities. Well, it backfired. I find it interesting that no other white or even hispanic sorority entered, but just this one that happens to be so “good” and then they win. Things that make you go Hmmmm………..

    ZTA or killed it. hands down. their performance held my attention from start to finish. i couldnt sit through a minute of the AKA performance. it was boring. coca cola shouldve stayed next to their decision.

  • Krysi J

    I don’t even have the energy, cause Lord knows this whole thing has been blown completely out of proportion :rolleyes:

  • LadyLioness

    Well I don’t know what show everyone else was looking at, but the AKA’s were a hell of a lot better than the pale chicks, and should’ve won. As for the comments, please don’t think for one minute that pale folks don’t speak with “black” slang. We are the most imitated on the planet. Please believe they fill up these blogs, posing like shyt, to see what’s going on, and get that warm and fuzzy false sense of belonging.

  • Chgoprime

    Wow are people still defending yte people and saying we’re more racist? I doubt that we are more racist than any other group but thats my opinion…..

  • QuettaV

    All these racist mofo’s can slide down a sliding board made out of razor blades into a pool of alcohol and marinate in it for a while. Racisim will never… ever go away… we have to deal with it!!! it’s wrong on both part.. ( hating against whites, and hating agaist blacks) it’s my opinion please don’t :shotsfired1: I’m just stating my opinion..

  • cheeks8683

    Seeee and y’all where defending them…when it comes down to it and folks get upst they are ALWAYS quick to use the N word…Then have the nerve to say that WE can’t let THEM have anything…Heck to the nawww!!! THEY are always jocking our style…Tans, butt pads, style…the list goes on…smh on this whole post just wow!

  • http://myspace.com/dannyblaq dblaq

    ahemm, no not the last 5 years, we became nothing but followers. Its only a VERY few that set the trends and the rest of us just follow and do the exact same sh!t until its completely ran to the ground! Jeezy say thug, everybody and they mama a thug, Jay-Z says button up shirts – everybody wear button up shirts, somebody wear uggz – everybody wears uggz. HOw is that being a trend setter????

  • Raven

    Trust that while you posting on SR. Your non black coworker could very well be posting derogatory shyte bout black folks on they fav blog. I cant read the comments on a news story regarding anything black without reading all the names YT came up with for us, dogging black people. It is better to be safe than sorry and acknowledge that racism against black/ women exist and know what to expect than to be blindsided. My .02, my opinion.

  • KrayZKat

    Okay, should we consider that these comments came from in-bred, backwood, yt’s who love to project their racism onto us? That’s exactly what they do best. They claim everyone but themselves are racist because they have never and will never acknowledge their own.

    So many black people love to defend yt, love acceptance from yt, sit at massah’s feet hoping to get his scraps, and sex up their women like their puss is made of gold, and this is what we get in return. How typical.

    Consider the sources and keep it moving.

    BTW, if we WERE more racist than they, we learned it from them.

  • KrayZKat

    Ya’ll if you haven’t all ready, check out a white man named Tim Wise. He beats the breaks off white folks and their white supremacist ways.

    I am appaled at the comments of the white people. You just using n*gga like it was the word and. LOL Yes, the screen names are offensive. My comment? Well, to the woman saying why won’t we let YT be great, F U. You have been great for centuries. We have had EVERYTHING cultural taken from us. Our dances, our music, our style, our hairstyles, etc. We have just begun in the last few decades to be able to be GREAT at anything as YT wasn’t having it. And as for YT handing the Black girls their ass…yes, they were good, not precise but good. I liked their performance but the other team was good and original. YT had steps I have seen since MY college days back in the 90’s so nothing special except for them being white. The leg on the backs and still stepping was original. Tell YT to come better than that. I do think the decision made was the decision made but keep in mind, it is a predominantly black activity. And how is there an ALL white step team for a black sorority (AKA). Where they do that at?

  • http://myspace.com/dannyblaq dblaq

    That’s why I love my country because its made up of nothing but hypocrits black and white. Do as I say but not as I do!

    You can’t cry foul when you do the exact same.

    @ Bird I had to reread the comments as well!! Thanks fro your insight!!!!

    It’s sadly true that whenever you read news stories online involving anything about a black person doing this or that you basically have to wade through at least two or three posts that are totally racist and hateful. That’s true. That doesn’t mean this is why the white chicks who did a better job stepping in the stepping contest, won the stepping contest. Lord.
    Also, just so people know, racism is about discrimination and prejudice, not power. Racists come in every shape and size and color, it’s just some are in positions of power over other races and some aren’t. Always just as ugly though. Justifying either side makes you look so foolish, so sheepish, and so hypocritical.

    1.)I doubt all those comments were made by whites. And if they were-then whatever. It don’t offend me in the least. I am comfortable with who I am-call me whatever your want over the net, it’s not affecting my livelihood or money making abilities in the least. I know the meaning of “N*gger” so those words (because they are just that) don’t hurt me. Instead of having an ‘us against them’ mentality we need to do something about it.

    2.)You claim there is a history behind stepping that you learn during MIP. Well not everyone who attends a step show is a member of a BGLO. So to them it’s just entertainment. Much like many of you claim it is for whites. You have pride in your traditions, but if members of these organizations are the only ones aware of its past, then what point does it serve to continue in the tradition for the public? All your doing is entertaining college students and the general public who pays admission to enter the building.

    3.)This step show horse horse has been beaten to death. I just hope that ppl can move past it. All the teams were ok, nothing I would give any of them $100K for. But it’s not my money so I don’t care. But I believe the right ppl won originally and as far as many ppl up here are concerned, the AKA’s were only awarded 1st place because they complained and someone wanted to save face. That’s like be awarded Miss America only after the original winner was disqualified for posing in Playboy. You weren’t first choice. So who gives a damn after the fact.

  • aidansmom

    *I didn’t mean they (as in AKA’s) complained. I meant the public.*
