Yep! Pretty much

This is why I'm glad to see BCU's alumni is trying to gain control of this crazy situation.  I hope they can right the ship and get the university back on the right track, but this time, they need to put in place all the necessary checks and balances to keep it from slipping back into the hands of fools.

Smh...when does it stop?

Not until we stop trying to get over on our own and stop letting them other folks encourage us to help them get richer.
I would love to be able and breakdown how many of these are registered Republican vs registered Democrats who are putting our hbcus at risk like this. I have a theory

Betsy DeVos was asked to be the commencement speaker for a reason.
Get out of my head

Some us actually think that them other folks will give us a large sum of cash if we kissed their butts, such as Talladega marching in Trump's inauguration parade or those handkerchief head preachers who supported Trump. Trump and DeVos have basically come out and stated that Black folks are too ignorant to understand what they are trying to do.

If you need tech, now may be the time to buy or wait until agent orange brings China to their knees.

That next smart speaker, fitness tracker or smartwatch you buy will likely cost more if another wave of products gets hit with tariffs as part of the U.S.-China trade war.

Additional tariffs being considered on imports from China could cause consumers to pay between $1.6 billion and $3.2 billion more in 2019 for electronic products such as smart speakers, smartwatches and other Bluetooth-enabled devices, according to a new study published Friday by the Consumer Technology Association. – after Trump threatened tariffs on all Chinese imports, valued at $500 billion.

Last month, President Donald Trump slapped tariffs on $34 billion worth of Chinese goods, and another $16 billion worth are set to take effect next week. Additional products are being considered – including tech products and parts – a

Disenfranchisement Colored Confederate Statue Debate in City

Aug. 17, 2018

By CAROLINE HANKS and JOSEPH FOLEY, Capital News Service

Dating back to the late 1860s, the African-American community celebrated the anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, which freed enslaved Americans, with annual celebrations on January 1.

During the celebrations in Pasquotank County, prominent black citizens read the proclamation and gave speeches. Parades were added in the 1870s.

Held at local churches in the early years, citizens later assembled for the annual event on the county courthouse grounds. This tradition lasted decades until May 1911, when the Confederate monument was unveiled at the same location.

"It is very suspicious that the area most closely associated with emancipation celebrations and African-American influence was obliterated by erecting this monument," said Lanier. "It put in stone, literally, that this was a white man's country."

Another example of North Carolina's disenfranchisement of African-American political power involved erasing Hugh Cale from the state's history. Cale, an African-American born a free man in neighboring Perquimans County, won election to the North Carolina General Assembly in 1876 and was also a Pasquotank County Commissioner.

In 1891, he helped established the State Colored Normal School at Elizabeth City, now Elizabeth City State University, an historically black college.

During the 1890s, the Fusion Party, made up of black Republicans - who later became known as Democrats -and white Populists, dominated North Carolina politics and led to the election or appointment of about 1,000 African-Americans to government positions.

This progress came to an abrupt halt in 1898 with the Wilmington Race Riots that turned into a white-run coup d'etat, the only successful one in U.S. history. The coup plotters installed a government based on white rule to the exclusion of blacks.

During the same time period, Cale's name was removed from a plaque dedicated to the five county commissioners in the Pasquotank County Courthouse.

In 1901, the state's constitution was amended, which also diminished the black community's growing political influence. Although changes did not explicitly proclaim the disenfranchisement of blacks, the implementation of literacy tests, the poll tax and a grandfather clause, which allowed only those whose descendants had voted prior to 1867 the right to vote, effectively lowered black turnout and significantly reduced the voice of African-Americans in politics, Lanier said.

Black Republican George Henry White was the last of four African-Americans elected to the U.S. Congress from North Carolina's "black second" district, named for its majority black population in the late 1800s.

After the restrictive voting amendments in 1901, White did not seek a third term. He was replaced by a white Democrat, Claude Kitchin, whose spot went largely unchallenged for the next quarter-century. Kitchin eventually became the majority leader of the U.S. House of Representatives.
