COLUMBIA, S.C. — As college and university football fans across the country enjoy competitive collegiate divisional football games, Benedict College (BC), in the spirit of sportsmanship and teamwork, agreed to share the BC Tigers' Charlie W. Johnson stadium with its HBCU neighbor, Allen University, for the Yellow Jackets 2019 football season.  The Yellow Jackets will play their first game in Charlie W. Johnson stadium on September 28.

"I was delighted when President (Ernest) McNealey reached out to me this summer to inquire about using the stadium and I am proud that we were able to reach an agreement in a single conversation that will allow our sister-HBCU to play most of its home games in Columbia, "said BC President & CEO Dr. Roslyn Clark Artis. "While this is not a permanent solution, our collaboration this season is a tribute to Charlie W. Johnson, whose name the stadium bears.  He is not only the Chair of our Board of Trustees, but he is a former NFL professional football player who understands the power of teamwork and sportsmanship."

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>
