Every now and again, WatchTheYard gets comments about certain organizations copying others in our comment section. We have come up with a solution, perform battles online where we post both videos and let our audience decide who did it best.

Today’s battle is between the Alphas at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the Mighty Rho Psi Chapter of Q-Psi-Phi at Tennessee State University. Both have sent us videos of remixes to Snoop Dogg’s “Gin and Juice” and there has been accusations made that the Ques copied the Alphas because their video came out one year later. In the end, we don’t really care who came out with it first, we want to know who did it best.

Your job is to watch both videos and then comment below, telling us who you think did the best job. Please share this post with your friends, as we want as many people voting on this as possible. We will reveal the winner of the battle on Monday via our Instagram account.

    Don’t matter who did it first. The Alpha were so bland and dry I couldn’t even watch the whole video. Ques did it best.

    The Ques video was a lot more entertaining and you could actually tell it was a parody of Snoop’s video.

    Alphas from Too Tuff Tau chapter of the U of Illinois hands down! I graduated from TSU and back in the day, the Rho Psi chapter for the Ques (when they weren’t on probation) had a pretty good rep for stepping. Parody or not, this was a bit sloppy.

The Davidson College Brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha Just Released This Video About Trump’s DACA Repeal

The brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha at Davidson College are speaking out against President Donald Trump’s DACA repeal.

The brothers of the Tau Omicron Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. recently released a video publicly standing against the actions to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program – which provides a level of amnesty to certain undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children – with a six-month delay for current recipients.

On Tuesday, President Trump urged lawmakers to “do your job” with DACA.

In the statement that the chapter released, they stated that their chapter, “stands with the Dreamers and against the proposed DACA repeal.
This is about more than statistics or policy decisions. About 800,000 human beings currently hold DACA status in the U.S. These are our friends, our peers, our neighbors, our family and we have to stand against bigotry & xenophobia and fight with them now.”

Watch their full statement below.

The First Black Mayor of New York, David Dinkins, Is a Member of Alpha Phi Alpha

Did you know that the first Black Mayor of New York, David Dinkins is a member of Alpha Phi Alpha?

Dinkins crossed the Beta Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha at Howard University in 1984 where he graduated cum laude with a degree in mathematics in 1950.

Here is a picture of the Beta Chapter in 1950. David Dinkins is on the far left and Andrew Young, the man who would become the mayor of Atlanta, is the 6th brother from the right.

Dinkins received his LL.B. from Brooklyn Law School in 1956 and started a private practice from 1956 to 1975 while he rose to the head of the Democratic party in Harlem.

In 1966, Dinkins briefly served as a member of the New York State Assembly (78th D.) and later served as the president of the New York City Board of Elections (1972–1973) and New York City Clerk (1975–1985). In 1985, he became the Manhattan borough president and on On November 7, 1989, Dinkins made history by being elected mayor of New York City, defeating Republican nominee Rudy Giuliani in the general election.

After serving as mayor Dinkins served as a Professor of Professional Practice in the Faculty of International and Public Affairs at the Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs.

Dinkins, who is currently in his 90s, is a pride to his fraternity and in 2013 members of the Wall Street Alphas and the Beta Chapter Alumni Association (BCAA) hosted a special tribute to him at the Red Rooster Harlem. The event — entitled “An Alpha Man from Gotham” – brought together members of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. across several generations to honor the legacy of Dinkins.

Check out this video the event below.
