Black Fraternities & Sororities Come Together To Shut Down Mona Scott-Young’s Latest Project

Black Fraternities & Sororities Band Together To Shut Down Mona Scott-Young's Latest Project

I learned of Mona Scott-Young a couple years ago when researching the hip hop music scene and it’s leading forces. I most recently seen her work w| Nicky Minaj on the Myx Fusions wine.

She has a long resume when it comes to entertainment; Working behind the scenes with artists such as Busta Rhymes, Missy Elliott and 50 Cent to name a few. She is the CEO of multi-media entertainment company Monami Entertainment—home to Grammy Award-winning artist Missy Elliott and VH1’s most popular docu-franchise “Love & Hip Hop.” In addition to “Love & Hop Hop,” the film and television division of Monami Entertainment has produced the spin-off “Chrissy & Mr. Jones” and “The Gossip Game”—both on VH1.

She has most recently been working on a new reality show titled Sorority Sisters which has received a backlash amongst black fraternity and sorority members due to its misrepresentation of Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Zeta Phi Beta and Sigma Gamma Rho members highlighted in the show’s trailer, which has since been removed from the web due to the uproar.

Now, I don’t really watch reality shows which usually show people through a negative lens, whether it be partially or totally scripted. So I’m not going to assume this would be one of these cliche ‘Bad Girls Club’ type shows. But, I can say this, a lot of these reality shows seem to pick people who are willing to do or say anything to be on television. They don’t think about how they may look or sound to the world. I would hope for this show, if it airs to be in a positive light for my black people.

Now I am all for be who you are and don’t give a fck what people think. But, there is a line people should not cross. A lot of women after being on reality TV consider themselves stars, usually at the cost of being half naked, acting ignorant, fighting, constantly arguing or talking behind other women’s back – all for the sake of ‘I’m a reality star’….

Following the negative reaction to the “Sorority Sisters” preview clip, Reynoir Lewis launched a MoveOn.Org petition in an effort to axe the series from airing on television:
Stop the spread of ignorance and stereotyping of our beloved Black Greek letter organizations. Our founders amongst EVERY organization worked extremely hard to allow us to unite and flourish not only on college campuses, but as a people well beyond our college days, and Mona Scott-Young now threatens to demolish those aims and goals we all abide by. If this show airs, we will boycott any and all advertisers affiliated with the show through commercial advertising, product placement and/or location use.
*I, Reynoir Lewis, will be personally delivering these signatures to the President Philippe Dauman and the Executive Chairman Sumner M. Redstone.* Thank you for your support.

Nicki Minaj and Mona-Scott Young Talk Myx Fusions Moscato Partnership

I am not a huge fan of Nicki Minaj since she turned pop and the downgrading of fellow black women. But, I am a fan of successful Black Women and I am glad she is representing a black success in a positive lens.

Who doesn’t fantasize and dream of the lifestyles these success women are living…? I would love to have all the things Miss Kicki has such easy access to. Just make sure it is done with gratitude, respect for self and others along with authenticity.

Just heard of Nicki’s line which is carried in Kmart, quite impressed with what she said in the Part II of this video.

I will give Nicki this, she is definitely a personality, she has made a name for herself, she had stood out from most music artists and she made her way. She is a story of success. In hopes of this black woman keeping her fans at heart and giving some more of her earlier days hip hop music.
