Social justice Commission of PNBC Inc. announces NY declaration at press conference

NEW YORK — America is undergoing a serious intensification of an ongoing, historic crisis. As Dr. King clearly indicated, the crisis is fundamentally spiritual and moral. Upon his demise, his prescription of love was dismissed as the sentimental musing of a well-meaning Southern Pastor who, having caught hold of the tail of his times, was drawn headlong into an inevitable struggle to rid America of the culturally cumbersome system of southern segregation. By and large, his deeper analyses were ignored as well as, his more prophetic pronouncements and concomitant warnings.

Yet, here we are, predictably, at a point in the life of our body politic where the deeply embedded disease of White Supremacy is proving to be the clay in the feet of the American Giant, the Achille’s heel of our ideological empire. The residual resentments, the unaddressed delusional preoccupations of a miseducated American populace have left the fate of the entire Republic vulnerable to the keen manipulations of enemies both foreign and domestic.

The drain on American moral and spiritual resources has made itself manifest in the current chaos. We have lost the capacity to identify a truly moral and/or spiritual crisis and respond in appropriate ways. It is equally clear that those who have arrogated to themselves the moral and spiritual mantle are so spiritually bankrupt, culturally compromised and morally corrupt that they have proven to be no more than a symptom of our collective malaise; clearly seen in the Paula White’s and Billy Graham Jr.’s and in the materialistic masquerades of TBN and The Word Channel.

Sensing a crisis in American life beyond the mere political machinations of professional politicians far too preoccupied with their own personal and party prospects to act responsibly or with the depth and urgency the situation demands, we have come forward.

Youth baseball is picking up in the Triad area of North Carolina.

They are not on travel teams but a number of the young brothers are playing middle school and high school ball.

Norfolk State overwhelmed at home by No. 16 North Carolina A&T

Calling them drives is inadequate. North Carolina A&T just scored and scored ... and scored again. Immediately.

Four Aggies scoring “drives” lasted just one play and a fifth was two plays as No. 16 A&T (4-1, 2-0 MEAC) walloped Norfolk State 58-19 on Saturday at Dick Price Stadium.

The department of motor vehicles really has to examine how they do business.

They may need a 2nd shift.

From the Washington Post:

Howard QB Caylin Newton will redshirt and transfer after playing four games this year

By Michael Brice-Saddler

Cecil Newton said Caylin hasn’t determined where he’ll play next. Caylin will consider a school with a strong master’s program in sports management or marketing, according to his father, as he decides between a couple career paths.

Unlike his older brother Cam, who was the No. 1 pick in the 2011 NFL draft, Caylin isn’t considered a high-level pro prospect.

“He won’t play football all his life,” Cecil Newton added. “He’s got to have something else, too.”

The UNC Board has a problem with East Carolina. I guess they want some of that money and power that the Eastern part of the state has had for years.

FSU wins Down East Classic

Sports Writer

Sunday, September 29, 2019

More offense is a sign that the Elizabeth City State football is pointed in the right direction.

Led by receiver Dajuan Green and running back Bryan Gregory, the Vikings enjoyed their most productive game of the season. But the increased offense couldn’t keep up in a 55-12 loss to Fayetteville State on Saturday as the teams played in the 22nd annual Down East Viking Classic.

The ECSU offense, seemingly stuck in neutral in the first three games of the season, recorded season-high production in all facets of the offense. Mistakes at crucial times, including two lost fumbles in the first half that killed potential scoring drives.

“We can look at the good things and give credit where credit is due, but we have to focus on the bad, too,” Green said following the loss. “We have to correct things so we can get better for next week.”

I don't think that the CIAA needs another event to keep fans from attending the basketball games.

last night jay walker comfirmed what i've always believed and that is that our campus beauty is very "under rated".  i've always said i haven't seen an hbcu campus that looked better than ours, especially since our new student center was constructed.  and i've been to an awful lot of hbcu's over the years, but admittedly i have not been to every single hbcu in the country like jay may have.

so having him say it on national tv confirmed my strong belief.  he himself said that he has not seen any other hbcu that had a better looking campus than a&t and he even compared our campus to hampton's which has a lake on campus...

I was in the student section when Jay ran in a QB sneak for the Howard win at Aggie Stadium...but after how good he made us look yesterday, all is forgiven.

Nope ... That one hurt too bad.
