“It started way back in 1913…” Well, you know how the Greek chant performed by members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. goes.
The story goes, back in 1913 on the campus of historically black Howard University, 22 undergraduates who were originally initiated into the Alpha Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. left the group and founded Delta Sigma Theta. Still today, Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority, the first Black Greek Lettered Organization founded by African American women, insists that without AKA…well, you get the point.
So you can imagine the sometimes heated rivalry between AKA and Delta in “The Best There Is, The Best There Was, The Best There Ever Will Be” sorority contest.
They don’t need to be upset with me it was a joke.
That’s why when photos of Tiny, the wife of the “King of the South” rapper T.I., went viral on social media people definitely had questions, comments and Illuminati convictions on why she threw the Greek signs up. Some people had nothing better to do but to favorite and retweet posts and watch as sparks fly on their Twitter timelines, who was probably first to break the shocking news.
(That would be me…)
Veronica Wells writing for Madame Noire says Tiny’s latest behavior is almost comical.
“Whether it’s ‘Weave Trip’ with her sidekick Shekinah, releasing a diss record to her own husband or permanently changing her eye color, the girl knows how to make us look,” Wells said on Tiny jumping in on a picture being taken of a few AKAs and Deltas, and throwing up both their hand signs.
“…I was looking and laughing at a couple of pictures that popped up on Twitter. Apparently, Tiny knows a few Deltas and AKAs and when they were posing for a picture, throwing up their respective Greek hand signs, Tiny didn’t want to be left out. So not only did she jump in on the picture, she threw up the hand signs too. Both of them, AKA and Delta’s,” she said.
“They don’t need to be upset with me it was a joke,” the hip hop wife said in a tweet responding to her critics.
Tiny clearly hasn’t been to a historically black college or university (HBCU) because everyone knows about Greek affairs at Black colleges. But what’s most surprising here is that Tiny’s friends who are AKAs and Delta’s seemed to allow her to throw up the signs in the photos anyway. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.
