... with two of the handful of African-American college head coaches - LeRoy Gardner of the U. of the Ozarks and Robert "Hollywood" Hemingway of Allen University in South Carolina, the only four-year HBCU with a wrestling program.

Might be worth the listen - I'm actually looking for feedback from the HBCU fan community, since it's tough for me to tackle discussions of race and overall diversity considering I'm a white male, although I've been an HBCU football fan for decades (growing up near Hampton U and Norfolk State).

Wrestling is predominantly white, so there's a big faction of the fanbase who refuses to believe any such racism or racial issues are relevant and feel if anyone brings them up, they're trying to race bait and be part of that "liberal media." That disclaimer out of the way ... here's the link.

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>
