Quote in DTH Article Gave Wrong Impression Of Greeks Dating Greeks

I am writing about the article printed in the Feb. 12 Daily Tar Heel that discusses Greeks dating Greeks on campus. There were several unsavory comments and mindsets attributed to me in this article.

After answering a few quick questions in the interview, I began thinking out loud about some stereotypical viewpoints that might lead people in general to think that only Greeks date Greeks.

The later comments were included in the article as my own personal feelings.

This could not be further from the truth.

I apologize to the reporter that I did not make it clear to her that the comments were not representative of my own mindset but instead me brainstorming as to why this idea might exist. People who know me well had a hard time believing those comments were what I meant.

I just wanted to clarify any misunderstandings. My true mindset is not properly reflected in the article. Like the other people in it, the only thing that has any bearing on my interest in a girl is not her as a sorority girl, but her as a person. I apologize for any wrongful impressions.
