ByLut Williams
Posted on June 25, 2022

HBCU tracksters were nearly shutout as the U.S. Track & Field Championships moved through most semifinal rounds and contested a few finals Friday in Eugene, Oregon.

The top three finishers in the event finals make the U. S. team and will represent the country at the World championships back in Eugene in three weeks.

A 2014 survey of 8,380 U.S. women who had abortions shows how their characteristics compare to the general population of U.S. women ages 15 to 44.

20 to 24  33.6%
25 to 29  26.5%
30 to 34  15.9%
35 to 39  9.1%
40 or older  3.1%

White  38.7%
Black  27.6%
Hispanic  24.8%
Asian/Pacific Islander  5.5%
Other  3.4%

Educational attainment
No high school diploma  8.9%
High school graduate/GED  27.0%
Some college/associate degree  40.9%
College graduate  23.1%

Number of prior births
0  40.7%
1  26.2%
2 or more  33.1%

Religious affiliation
Mainline Protestant  17.2%
Evangelical Protestant  12.8%
Roman Catholic  23.7%
Other  8.2%
None  38.0%

The United States has never been a nation that followed God but things may begin to take a even steeper dive.

America's love of money and capitolism corrupted it's religion.  If the Black Church continues to follow the path that America is taking, it will get uglier.

Between 2008 and 2014, the abortion rate declined 25%, from 19.4 to 14.6 per 1000 women aged 15 to 44 years.

The abortion rate for adolescents aged 15 to 19 years declined 46%

Incomes less than 100% of the federal poverty level ... abortion rate 36.6

White women accounted for the largest share of abortions (38.7%)

White Women lowest abortion rate: 10.0 per 1000

Black Women highest abortion rate: 27.1 per 1000

Why Howard University chose to stay in the MEAC

From reading this, I am thinking it might be a year-to-year referendum as far as several schools staying in the MEAC. I really don't like how it sounds, but hey, at least the conference stays alive for another year. :tiptoe:

The conference members should be honest with each other about their needs.  If they are looking to find a new home, say so.

HBCU athletes advance at USA Track Championships

June 24, 2022

HBCU athletes competing Thursday in the opening round at the U.S. Track & Field Championships in Eugene, Oregon were largely successful. Six advanced while three did not.

The top three finishers in each heat and the next four fastest times advanced to the semifinals.

USATF Outdoor Championships
FloTrack will provide on-site coverage of the 2022 USATF Outdoor Championships in Eugene, OR.

June 1993: Howard basketball coach Sanya Tyler gets the first monetary award given by a jury in a Title IX case: $2.4 million (later reduced to $1.1 million). The 14-year coach had sued the university for sex discrimination under Title IX in a D.C. superior court, saying she was paid much less than her men’s counterpart.

Start at the 4:40

Title IX revolutionized female athletics but advocates say it's been a constant fight

Fifty years ago, Title IX banned discrimination on the basis of sex in federally funded education programs. Advocates say it's been a fight to make sure girls and women get the opportunities promised.

Interview with the new Track coach

Allen Johnson, world champion hurdler and new A&T track and field coach, on the program's success and how he'll continue to build it

Eddie Wooten
Allen Johnson won an Olympic gold medal in the 110-meter hurdles at the Atlanta Olympics.

Best in the world.

He won gold medals in four outdoor and three indoor world championship meets.

Best in the world.

But now he's taking over successful N.C. A&T men's and women's teams and becoming a Division I head coach, the Aggies' director of track and field programs, for the first time.

"There's a part of me that's nervous as hell," he says.

Wait: One of track's all-time greats is ... nervous?

"Just because it's something that I haven't done," he says. "But I'm excited.

"You've got to respect the task. When I got to the Olympic final or a world championship final, I was nervous then, too. Typically when I get nervous, I get more focused."


:no:……muchas gracias, JBROB, for posting this 1848 notice advertising the upcoming sale of human beings. When you first read this ad, you might think it’s from a Dave Chapelle skit or something. But then the STARK reality of what the Juneteenth Holiday is really all about comes into focus.

So what we must focus on is the “liberation/freedom” of our ancestors from being held as freaking FARM ANIMALS!! And we should not be distracted by the IDIOTIC distractions of stupid Trump sycophants on this board.

I think we forget what really took place. The trama that we have have in our DNA is unreal.

and that his conduct was driven by unnatural or abnormal sexual interest in a minor. 

They basically called him an animal.
