Oh, God, please let them be mistaken.
Last night, shots were fired (in the air) at a picnic attended by members of the University of Alabama chapter of Delta Sigma Theta, a black sorority. This morning, a fire was apparently deliberately set at the sorority house, doing significant damage. Thankfully, none of the eight students in the house was hurt.
As you may or may not know, there have been some racial difficulties in the UA Greek community, particularly on the female side, in recent years. White sororities have been pretty stridently anti-integration. Obviously, I don’t know why this fire was set, but I have to fear the worst.
