Your humble poster is a tad technologically challenged, so it took me awhile to discover that the thread started by j1908 which is an article in the AJC about the "culture" of hazing at FAMU has been locked.
That may explain the sudden disappearance or, more accurately, lack of activity on the other FAMU band threads.
No doubt this has been a very contentious issue, generating some VERY passionate comments from FAMU friends and detractors alike. But I am concerned when it "appears" to me that those who run this board think that certain topics should not even be discussed.
Guys, trust, your humble poster is NOT trying to initiate another heated debate. But what happened to the FAMU drum major, even given all we DO know, is a topic that SHOULD be discussed as it has broader implications for HBCU's everywhere.
Ok, end of sermon.
