After the firestorm of that Papa John’s has had of late. Would you be opposed to your favorite HBCU establishing a partnership or excepting money from this franchise today.

No.

Unless you are in a desperate situation, you have no principles is what you meant to say.  You'd do anything for a buck.
Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'”

It depends.  John Schnatter has resigned, and hopefully his baggage is gone too.

Other companies have also harmed their minority customers.  Honda and Toyota come to mind immediately, both companies charging minority customers higher rates than white customers. Home Depot once fired an employee who was verbally abused by a racist.  BB&T came under fire for alleged unfair practices regarding minority church mortgages.

Yet still we celebrate Honda Battle of the Bands, Honda Campus All-Star Challenge, and Home Depot Retool Your School.  Toyota awarded five HBCUs $10,000 each and made a donation to the Tom Joyner Foundation.  BB&T just put their name on A&T's stadium.  After a while, no one will remember the negative press.

I think the university president has to examine the opportunity fully to make a well-informed decision.

HELL YES!  Quoting Maury guests on the verge of their 17th failed paternity test....I’m 1,000,000% sure.

Under no circumstances should Tuskegee align themselves with that particular company until they completely separate themselves from that racist idiot. He should not be receiving any residual economic benefits from their business dealings with our community.

Using the logic of you people HBCUs shouldn't take money from any corporation.  Because sometime in the past they all have have done shady things to Blacks.
