Post by: klg14 on October 20, 2020, 09:31:23 AM

I’ve long since gotten tired of the black athlete getting screwed. It’s now time to DO something about it.

Time will tell, bro.  I wish these young bruthas well.  Its rare to see them take a stand within the athletics ranks. So I applaud them for doing so. Normally, I just chime in with a 'shoulda gone to an hbcu' but I can also appreciate bruthas [sistas too] who stir the pot at these schools.
