Western Illinois University's Black President Is Out
« on: June 14, 2019, 06:38:12 PM »
Jack Thomas’s tenure is effectively over at Western Illinois University, bringing to an end a tumultuous leadership crisis that was fueled by state budget cuts and injected with race and local politics.

 :(.........always hate to see a brutha or sistah go out Ike that, but I guess homeboy ultimately decided it was an untenable situation for him and his family.

Have never visited McComb, Illinois, but my homeboy has been there a time or two to see the Rattlers play Western Illinois in football. He said he felt like he had been caught in a time warp the first time he went there. I guess a town with a population of 18K that is 90% white is not likely to be too negro friendly.  :(

I wish the brutha well.
