Strangely,  the celebrities who stepped up to donate funds when President Cole was there are silently sitting on the sidelines this time.  Could they be frustrated?  :shrug:

Possibly. I'm glad High Point University stood up.

Yeah, I think so. Because Johnetta raised a lot of money only to be squandered

I don't have time to watch the video. Did they reach their goal?

11,000 people made donations.  Probably more, because of the people that made donations at church and the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr parade.

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>
