Title

What's the Difference between a Frat and a Gang?

Subject

A comparison between fraternal activities and gang activities.

Description

The article compares fraternal activities to gang activities. The author states that a fraternity actually may be more violent than a gang. Affluent white men are allowed to get away with egregious crimes like sexual assault, racism, and hazing. Gangs are scrutinized for their behavior more than fraternities, because many members are non-white.
