These black athletes aren't going to leave top of the line programs and facilities, training, nutrition, exposure for HBCU's.  I mean just to just keep it real. Its a great dream. But HBCU's would have to get a lot more funding, to improve there athletic facilities, and everything else they can offer compared to these Big PWU's. Even smaller PWC's colleges and universities top HBCU Athletics.

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>

 

Please consider supporting our efforts to foster free and open discussion of current issues as they relate to the topics you are interested in.
