The FAMU Rattler was on MSNBC this morning, straight fire. :clap:

He is promoting his new book which I will definitely be getting. If anyone has read his first one, you to get it and keep it in the personal library for a reference. The research he did for the book is second to none.l

 :nod:^^^CU, homeboy was also on NPR this morning which ran part II of an interview they conducted with him a short while ago. Part I ran yesterday morning.

I have the first book which I have been plodding thru for sometime. I’ll order the second book very soon.

Rattlers everywhere are very proud of this brutha.  :clap:

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>
