Can’t Be Serious: CNN Mistakes Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Members In Baltimore For Gang Bangers

Zeta Phi Beta Members Mistaken For Gang Members

People are currently outraged after members of a prestigious Divine 9 organization were called gang members on national television.

On Tuesday as members of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. sat quietly at a Baltimore Town Hall, CNN anchor Erin Burnett mistook them for Crips gang members.

“We’ve got gang members right there….” said the clueless reporter.

SMH….completely irresponsible!

Are white people really so far removed from black life they can’t tell the difference between a community service organization and a gang????

What do YOU think about this nonsense????
