So, I'm getting ready to depart from a 6.00 recitation (I need a REST) when I see Kallie. As it turns out, she's also in the class (though I didn't see her in the lectures), and she's in the recitation just after mine.

After confirming that we were both in the same class and exchanging an anecdote or two, I mention that I'll look for her in the lecture (as any good DOOMCitizen would do, imo).

I'm am then told that I can't sit near her (though I hadn't actually suggested any such thing) because she sits with her sorority-mates.

Needless to say, I assume it's because I'm black.

Now, I like Kallie and I'm not one to call names...

...so I'll let wikipedia do it for me: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Peter#Denial_of_Jesus

Really more of a Peter, denying your name.

It's true... I had two different ways in which I was considering taking the post, the the product was a non-sensical amalgam of the two.

Fixed

So... this is not exactly the way it went down, at least the way I interpreted it.

He said he'd look for me. I wanted to make sure that he knew that if he were already sitting down and my sorority sisters were also sitting down, I would go sit with them. I ended the conversation by saying something to the effect that were I already sitting down, he could come sit on the other side of me, but at that point he was already mock-outraged, so I don't think he heard me.

So there.

Is this a sorority policy (implicit or explicit), or is it just that it's still kind of new and you want to cement the relationships and all?

What if more sorority sisters arrived after he sat on the non-sorority-sister-side of you?
