I finally got the chance to get on the message board.  It's been a bit of a whirlwind.

Thanks to all of you for your thoughts and prayers.  I know I don't frequent the board as much as I used to, but it feels good to see you kind and caring words.  Yalll are truly the best!  :hugs:

 Linda Abrams was a phenomenal mother, a heck of a college professor, and a wonderful friend.   I'm gonna miss her so much but I take comfort in knowing she is no longer suffering. 

I love you mama.   :angel:

Did someone reach out to her VG??? Because y’all know if someone said they were interested in xyz HBCU. My bat signal would’ve posted on this here board to reach out.


Yes.  Several medical professionals from A&M reached out and were willing to talk to the daughter, and Dr.  Green was even tagged.  Not sure what happened after that.

When my dad graduated with his Doctorate, he was offered a position at Auburn University but he told them no he was going back to his Alma Mater to give back to the school that gave him so much.  I drove through Auburn earlier this year and wondered to myself how I would have turned out had I grown up in Auburn instead of Fort Valley.  Would I have gone to Auburn?  Would I have been exposed to HBCU’s enough? Would my parents given us exposure to HBCU’s through association with people from TU?

Knowing my parents we would have gone to HC and gone to see the Wildcats when they played TU.....

Just a thought.  SO GLAD I didn’t grow up in Auburn.  It’s a beautiful college town, but naw - I’m a Valley Girl though and through.

Every year I hear so many local Huntsville kids and their parents say they are sending their kids to Auburn and University of Alabama. They claim no way would they go to A&M. Blah, blah, blah. Look around a year or two later and the kids have either dropped out or at A&M.

There is a FB group I am in and the other day a lady who graduated from TU (I think) asked if there was someone from A&M in the medical field her younger daughter could talk to about attending Alabama A&M - she pushed HBCU’s but for whatever reason her daughter seemed to think her chances of getting into medical school would be better attending a PWI.  First person I thought about was Dr Hadiyah Nicole Green - An awesome medical professional, not to mention there were SEVERAL A&M doctors that offered her assistance.  If this young lady thought that and she actually has a mama that pushes an HBCU, I can only imagine what others whose parents know very little about HBCU’s thinks. 

I said all of that to say people need to stop sleeping on our schools. You can get anywhere from there....

They are prime examples of the phrase "what's the point of being right if nobody wants to hear what you have to say" :shrug:

When in a new setting, the prudent thing to do would be to come in, get a feel for the lay of the land, learn how things work, so that you can work within the system to change what's wrong with it.  But nooooo, you wanna come in loud as hell beating your chest begging for attention and turning people off left and right - the same people you could use as allies to help implement the changes you want to see.

I've BEEN tired of AOC - I want her to hush sometimes. 

Don't know much about Cori Bush, but she might want to sit down and eat her food for a minute too.

Why da  hell is she clocking Halle’s cooter cat for?  How da hell would she even know? 

And if we are being petty one could say that your ex husband preferred Duane Martin’s boy Coochie to your trashbox.

I usually like LisaRaye but lately she has been coming off mean and bitter. 

Shutting up costs you nothing lady.   Just shut the hell up.

How is Ted Cruz not on this list?

That man literally said your wife was ugly and didn’t even apologize for it. 

If I were Mrs. Cruz that wimp I was married to couldn’t say anything to me.   Nothing at all.  How dare you not defend my honor?

So glad he was caught.  Ol bastard.

I don’t do online dating - never have a never will but it works for some.   That’s the new thing. It’s what people do.

Her mistake was that when she first met him she told him where she lived and got into the car with him.   She should have met him where they were supposed to meet - and preferably a breakfast date.  But even doing those things is just a security measure and doesn’t guarantee anything- he might have gotten close to her later and still whipped her @zz - or done even worse to her.   

She made a mistake but her getting beat ain’t her fault.

Between online dating horror stories and these Fatal attraction shows on TVONE, I just keep to myself :lol:

Hey Que:

Does Allen have their own stadium?  Where will they play their home games?

Y’all this makes my heart smile!  It really does! 

Go head Morris Brown! Shout out to Bennett College, Clinton College, Paine College, Paul Quinn College, Shorter College, and the Virginia University of Lynchburg too.

Both of them are in the east, so which team or TEAMS are headed to the West?  Or will they do a North/South Split?

Albany would be one I'm sure, who would be the other?  Morehouse?  It would be kind of weird for Morehouse and CAU to be in different divisions so close to each other, but if they are actually sticking to geography ASU is farther west followed by Da House I think...

We shall see how this all plays out.
