207. Oh, I remember that foolishness all too well
The whole thing was ridiculous. There was a thread about it in GD when it happened and I was astounded by the number of white DUers who swore up and down those girls deserved to win even though they probably had never seen a step show in their entire lives and had never even heard of "stepping" until this happened.

Every black person in the thread said, "I've been to many step shows and these girls didn't deserve to win" or even "I've PERFORMED in several step shows and these girls didn't deserve to win" and we were called "haters" or ignorant of our OWN DAMN CULTURE. The girls in ZTA showed infinitely more class than many of their supporters.

They were surprisingly good. I don't think anyone would ever deny that. But considering most of their steps were "borrowed" from other sororities and the presentation was rather uncoordinated at best, they should never have placed higher than second.
