Banned for blackballing

edit

The article about Delta Kappa Epsilon says "In 1989, Colgate University banned all DKE activities after the officials found members guilty of hazing, blackballing and other violations of university regulations" - since blackballing is described as a voting system, how can that be reason for banning a group? 80.145.24.15 (talk) 19:51, 11 April 2013 (UTC)Reply

I would imagine it refers to members vexatiously blackballing prospective pledges who have already been pre-selected by committee as suitable. Nuttyskin (talk) 23:17, 1 November 2017 (UTC)Reply

so that a black ball can be differentiated from a dirty white ball

Surely, it is so a black ball can be distinguished from a white ball by touch in the darkness of the voter's hand or pocket.
