Clark Atlanta suspends men’s track program

Clark Atlanta University has suspended its men’s track and field program “for the next few years,” Athletics Director J. Lin Dawson confirms.

“Suspending or reducing a varsity sport is not an easy decision,” Dawson said. “The decision to right size the department was based on resources, competitiveness, gender equity, and facilities.”

The men’s cross country team and women’s running sports will not be affected.

Standby for news from our athletics dept in the coming days/weeks.
If capitalism is so great, why does it need to be bailed out by socialism every ten years?

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
