"The Voice" Has Died..
« on: June 26, 2017, 10:11:09 AM »
It is with a heavy heart that I let you guys know that Dr. Jimmy James transitioned last night.

Dr. James was the voice of the Sonic Boom of the South for over 40 years and revolutionized what it meant to be an HBCU band announcer with his signature vocabulary. Feel free to enjoy this video of Dr. James:

Agreed 100%. He had a great voice, he was classy, and he never said too much. My favorite HBCU band announcer for sure. Sleep well, sir.

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>

 

Please consider supporting our efforts to foster free and open discussion of current issues as they relate to the topics you are interested in.
