JT^^^you didn’t mention it, and perhaps you are unaware, but both the mayor of Birmingham and the mayor-elect of Montgomery are your fellow alums.  ;)

???......forgive me, bossman, but why can’t the voters of Alabama elect a black governor? If mofos got off their lazy trifling a.z.zes and VOTE, it certainly COULD happen.

Montgomery elected its first black mayor in 200 years. This is why it matters.

It can happen. But, all these mofos care about are Nick Saban and Alabama football. Look, I love my state. But, talking to some black people here is like talking to a brick wall.

Long overdue.  Montgomery is 56% Black.  Next, they should vote to change the names of those two predominantly Black high schools (Jefferson Davis and Robert E. Lee). 

Congratulations Frat!!!

 :nod: Heck yeah, they should!!! Any predominantly Black high school named after some yahoo confederate, redneck, racists should opt to change the name of their school, and their mascots too - Phuck some damn Colonels, Rebels, etc.  :tongue2:

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>
