I remember my father talking to me about his college days in Missouri. There was this fraternity on campus that would require their prospective pledges to pass what was said to be a brown bag test. Essentially, if you were darker than the brown bag, you could not get into the fraternity. I don’t remember the name of the fraternity and don’t want to slander one by guessing. I was very young when he told me this, and of course didn’t ask any further questions. I wish I did because he has since passed away. The strangest thing was, he wasn’t a dark man, I would guess he was just a shade darker than a paper bag.
