bill clinton Bill Clinton Gets Inducted In Black Fraternity

I really don’t know what to think about this, but Phi Beta Sigam might have gone a little too far.

The historical black fraternity has voted to induct former President Bill Clinton as an honorary member. Clinton is the first U.S. president to be inducted into a historically black fraternity.

Phi Beta Sigma President Paul Griffin Jr. said Friday that Clinton is the first U.S. president to be inducted into a historically black fraternity.

The fraternity voted Tuesday for Clinton’s induction at its 95th Anniversary Conclave in New Orleans, La.

Stevie Wonder, Al Roker, Rev. Al Sharpton and jazz musician Ramsey Lewis are also honorary members of Phi Beta Sigma.

The fraternity was founded in 1914 at Howard University in Washington, D.C. It has more than 150,000 alumni and college members in about 500 chapters throughout the U.S., Caribbean, Africa and Asia.

I don’t want to create any controversy, but what did Bill Clinton really do for black people to have been so accepted by the black community and  inducted in this historical fraternity. Please refresh my memory because I am drawing a blank.

I remeber Bill being a charismatic president and speaker, he had a likeable personality and was concerned with issues concerning all minorities (not only blacks), but what is his significance in the black community and issues?

From the looks of it, this may actually be a short wig, so I guess we’ll have to wait and she if she’ll actually debut this as her new style.
