Nowadays there seems to be this overall hatred amongst the majority of people (more so millennials) for people who are in frats and for people who dress 'preppy'. A lot of people seem to look down upon those in fraternities and make generalizations about those in frats such as being: douchey, privileged, arrogant, rich, etc. Now there seems to be many people on WSO that were members of a fraternity so make you could speak from personal experience? Personally, I do not see anything wrong with being in a fraternity or even dressing preppy. I am from the New England area (think MA, CT, NY, RI) and I dress 'preppy' to a degree. Now as an African-American male, I hear comments like, "whitest black guy", etc and I don't see how race should be linked to dressing well. Like I've never understood the issue with wanting to dress casual but nice at the same time. And I am sure many of you do as well or were raised in environments in which people dressed preppy. I believe the generalizations are incorrect as I have met many people who either were in frats, dress preppy, or both and are perfectly fine people. Thoughts on this?
