It’s Time for Black Athletes to Leave White Colleges
« on: September 05, 2019, 10:18:34 AM »
In the summer of 2018 Kayvon Thibodeaux, who was then ranked as the top high-school football player in America, visited Florida A&M University, in Tallahassee. When a player of Thibodeaux’s caliber visits a perennial football power—say, Alabama—it’s called Wednesday. But when he visits a historically black college or university (HBCU) like Florida A&M, it threatens to crack the foundation on which the moneymaking edifice of college sports rests.

None of this matters if the $ ain't there. Alums, supporters, corporations, and communities have to spend/donate with our programs.

Generation Z likes shiny things, nice facilities, gear etc. It doesn't have to be P5 level, just something nice enough to entice them and their families.

I think there's some selfishness in this notion of top black kids should go to HBCUs. You're  asking an 18 year to have the foresight, knowledge and bravery to say "I'm going against the norm" or "I want to help bring HBCUs back to glory." These kids will to do what they want, they might not understand a PWI is a bad fit until they're 2 years into school or 15 years later when they go back to campus. That's why it's on us to emphasize the importance with our $. The folks on these HBCU message boards understand it so I might be preaching to the choir, but we gotta get our fair weather friends/non-financial supporting folks onboard

I've worked with a few former P5 football players over the years and I never hesitated to bring up NCCU and HBCUs. They didn't fully understand my affinity, but they would say they wished they could go back to their campus/homecoming and feel the same pride.

Uphill battle. Money and exposure controls where kids and families decide to play. If we ever come up with a remedy to this we can enter the game.

This is the con job that has been sold and is still being sold. They made what was once a simple sport into an arms race for one purpose and one purpose only. To have the biggest and shiniest toy in the building. To use and convince players that if you don't have these toys, you can t make it. Just forget they didn't have the toys years ago during the 60''/70's and hbcu's were putting just as many and in a lot of cases more athletes then they were. Facts be damn. Obviously it's more to it, but at the end of the day. If we don't stop buying into their propaganda it'll never happen. Not because of anything they would have done out of the norm. But because of what we failed to do.

Welcome to 2019 where everything old is new again.

As for the subject. This has been argued on HBCU sports sites since Day #1. We all know it will never happen . But it gets us riled up for a day or two.

:lol:....are you suggesting, CU, that the good fine, Christian white folks in places like Gainesville, Athens, Tuscaloosa, Knoxville and the like are really not interested in making good citizens of the negroes on the local university football team?

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>
