Politics / Re: Alabama largest black caucus just endorse Michael Bloomberg
« on: February 15, 2020, 03:51:22 PM »
^^^not gonna front, this “imaginary” exchange IS funny.

bluedog, on this thread and elsewhere in the Politics forum, you have been RELENTLESS in your criticism of Mike Bloomberg. I often wondered what exactly was animating you in your critique of dude. And why, for example, did you seemingly find his past racial history more odious, say, than other Dem presidential candidates.

But, Lord, have mercy, just watched a discussion on Mike’s presidential candidacy on Joy-Ann Reid’s show on MSNBC. And, I gotta tell ya, it was MORE than revealing. I have often wondered how Mike is securing so many endorsements from negro politicians, especially mayors. It may very well be that Mike is spending some of his incredible wealth on more than just campaign ads.......................WOW!!  :o
It's simple!  I'm not gullible/naive enough to see any of them as perfect or anymore than what they are. A politician.
But there's no Democratic President or Presidential candidate in my life time that's is as racist as this guy. The only difference between his life views on how he treats and views blacks and Trump. Is that he actually earned his money.

Bloomberg Campaign Ad Touts Relationship With Obama, Despite Complicated History

In a multimillion-dollar TV campaign and on the trail, Michael Bloomberg portrays himself as having a close bond with former President Obama. But the two have had a complicated relationship, with Mr. Bloomberg at times criticizing the Obama administration

Good article in Tallahassee Newspaper

https://www.tallahassee.com/story/sports/college/famu/2020/02/07/famu-rival-n-c-a-t-leave-meac-2021/4679521002/

Tyrone McGriff knows all too well about the logistics of money matters with athletics. The former FAMU football player now serves as the athletics director at Florida High School.

He expressed sadness about the loss of league rivalry games with the Aggies. However, McGriff wants FAMU to position itself for athletic sustainability – even if it means parting ways with the MEAC.

"NCAT has been a valued rival of FAMU for years. The two institutions both have rich athletic legacies and an even more profound mark on African-American culture. Seeing them leave the MEAC is bittersweet because of our long-lasting relationship, but maybe needed," he said.

"HBCUs have to evolve with the current trends in intercollegiate athletics. Conference alignment is pivotal in program growth and development. I hope our administrators look at the current moves taking place and consider joining a conference more reasonable for us in travel and for revenue-generating."

Wrong. I guess he have learned nothing from the age of Donald Trump and his supporters (Big South). Black Colleges need to stick together more now than ever. Every time one of us say we need to diversify, the closer we are to not existing. This "Make America Great Again" country can't wait to close our schools. Our needs still exist as they have more than 150 years ago. What needs to change is how we spend our money and knowing who we really are. If our costs are too high we need to move down... not move over.

But if you insist on justifying a dumb concept in moving, then do so. Just leave the rest of us alone. This will be my last post directed at those clowns in Greensboro.

GOOD BY!

Politics / Nazi propaganda and censorship. "The book of Trump
« on: February 15, 2020, 11:20:53 AM »


Once they succeeded in ending democracy and turning Germany into a one-party dictatorship, the Nazis orchestrated a massive propaganda campaign to win the loyalty and cooperation of Germans. The Nazi Propaganda Ministry, directed by Dr. Joseph Goebbels, took control of all forms of communication in Germany: newspapers, magazines, books, public meetings, and rallies, art, music, movies, and radio. Viewpoints in any way threatening to Nazi beliefs or to the regime were censored or eliminated from all media

Bloomberg: Hello, what is your name?

Black leader: My name is Mayor Kunta Kinte

Bloomberg: Here’s $1,000,000

Black leader: My name is Toby

yes.
Bruh I'm going to stalk you until you answer me and give some clarification to your reply to "MY" post. So you might as well get it over with. You had no problems giving me clarification why you were not voting for Obama. So what's really going on?

Southern University scored six runs on eight hits in the seventh inning, rallying past UNO 9-3 in an Andre Dawson Classic game Friday at Maestri Field in the season opener for both teams.

yes.
Are you going to confirm my understanding of what your reply to my post is this year?

39
If he was good as you say he should have gotten 100%.  He's dayum near running unopposed. :shrug:
That's just it. In Obama second term he ran unopposed. So turnout was low because the results were already concluded

yes.
Well? Am I understanding you correctly?

EWU has seen dwindling enrollment in recent years, forcing the university to approve a $3.6 million budget cut in June of last year for 2020. Syphers says that because of the budget cuts, faculty have been interested in looking at what the benefits of the athletics department are, considering it's a large part of the budget.

The surging Democratic presidential candidate and Bloomberg LP have fielded nearly 40 sexual harassment and discrimination lawsuits over decades.
In December 2015, employees at Everytown for Gun Safety, the gun control organization funded by Mike Bloomberg, arrived at work to find a holiday gift on their desks from their employer: the former mayor’s 1997 autobiography, Bloomberg by Bloomberg. Flipping through the book, staffers found themselves uncomfortably reading their billionaire founder’s boasts about keeping “a girlfriend in every city” and other womanizing exploits as a Wall Street up-and-comer.

“A few people started immediately going through it and sending the cringe-iest parts around on email chains,” one former Everytown employee told me. “Hardly the most controversial things he’s said, but it’s still a bad look.”

yes.
Okay, I wasn't sure because you didn't quote my post. So let me make sure I'm understanding you correctly.  You disagree that he's proven himself to have a  blatant racist attitude and policies, a blatant lack of respect for black people's intelligence , and that he used his ability to bypass all the norms like Trump and buy an election except with his own money?

Frustrated with recent budget cuts, Eastern Washington University faculty prepared a report this month that takes a critical look at the athletics department and suggests eliminating the athletics department entirely. 

The report analyzed the cost of the athletics program to be around $12 million to $14 million per year, but says it has had "no positive impact on our student enrollment, retention or recruitment." It was commissioned by the faculty senate and has been sent to the EWU administration, including President Mary Cullinan. At the end of the month, it will be presented to the EWU Board of Trustees.
