    The irony is that this is the jihadi mindset as well. You're either their kind of Muslim or you're an infidel. The Soul Patrollers I encountered during my college days were similar in their insistence on defining what was 'appropriate' behavior for African-American students. Pains in the a$$, all of 'em.

    What are Soul Patrollers, Civic? I've never heard of them before.

    Soul Patrollers were what we called African-American students who were really into Afrocentrism and thought other African-American students should be as well. To be fair, many of them were decent people who participated in worthy activities like tutoring black kids in inner-city schools. However, their self-righteousness and pushiness were real turnoffs for me. Having grown up with strict parents, the last thing I wanted in college was for someone else telling me what to do.

    In hindsight, I realize the Soul Patrollers and I dealt with our shared situation differently. I'd been around working class black folks all my life and wanted to see what else was out there. I viewed my college years as a time to explore the world beyond my community of origin. In contrast, Soul Patrollers dealt with being black at our overwhelming white, affluent college by focusing on their ties to working class black folks and the broader Black Diaspora.

    If you want to know their beliefs, you should go to their website. Their "interpretation" of the Bible is quite, um, interesting.

    What is funnier is that the signs saying “God hates shrimp — Leviticus” and “God hates cotton-polyester blends” are accurate! :lol:

    The University of Oregon (or at least an all-male a capella group there) must not be in God's good graces either. ;)
