@JAG89 refresh my memory about that controversy. I recall the community didn't really want the juke to perform.

Sent from my SM-T530NU using Tapatalk

I was still in high school then, but since I marched in SU band in 1983 and 1984, I was able to gather information from older band members.  Baton Rouge's news covered a great deal of the story, which ironically is hard to find in today's high tech informational world. It was told to me that the SU Board demanded that SU's band perform at Reagan's campaign rally at LSU. A lot of the band members didn't want to perform, but were being forced to or lose their scholarships.  Word had gotten around to other students at SU and a few started a protest rally on campus, demanding that Reagan come to SU to see and hear their demands.  Once they realized that that wasn't going to happen, sone students laid out in front of the buses transporting the band to LSU, which got the news media involved.  They captured pictures of SU campus security arresting and removing the students from blocking the buses.  The only thing I can find on that controversy is a LSU graduate student's thesis that talked about Reagan's campaign.  I'll see if I can find it and I'll post it on here.

heck, a lot of white school bands play it now!  i hear it all the time when i watch power 5 football games on tv...

A lot of P5 school's bands play black music.  The problem is the LSU students changing the words to "Suck that Tiger d!ck b!tch".

Bluedog,

Here's a copy of the link to the thesis. The SU protest rally starts on page 92 to 96 in the document or 99 to 103 of the dropdown menu bar.  Also, after that event, funding for SU became less and less.  Basically during the Reagan years.  This is why I think our students need to get more involved in the politics at our universities and stop allowing the political puppets (governing board) make decisions that are political related. I believe events like this helped individuals like Cleo Fields get elected into state office and then as the youngest U.S. congressman.  At that time, SUBR was the largest HBCU in the country and Cleo Field used the voter registration numbers of SU's student body to get elected.  I was a freshman when he was SU's SGA President. Congressman Cedric Richmond pretty much have the same advantage with SUBR, SUNO, SU Law Center, and SU Ag being in his congressional district.  SU should demand that he do more for the university.  The only part of the SU System that is not in his district is SU Shreveport.

Those same LSU fans seek to undo every political, social, educational and financial gain African Americans have made and yet black folks praise them for singing a song those dumbs Hicks don't even know is that is basically telling them to sit their dumb arse down somewhere. We are a lost bunch of people. Sad!

Wow. When you put it that way. It makes a lot of sense. And it is kinda sad.

Ya'll act like we invented most of the stuff our bands are playing. Next you're going to say we have the better bands. But before you start on me, take a look at this clip of Ohio State's band. Yes when we play these schools the game gets ugly, and most of the time the half time gets uglier.  :lol:


This video was made in 2011.  Are you saying HBCU bands copied from this????  I really have no clue of what you point is and I'm guessing neither do you. Yes I prefer an HBCU halftime show over that vanilla sh!t I just watched on your video.  Next you will yell us their ice is cooler :shrug:

I said it once and I'll say it again screw those racist redneck folks. When they change their hearts about black people so will I. I am not a friend of my enemy. They are just like their parents and grandparents who stood in doors to stop blacks from getting an education, jobs and to stop voting. They love Trump because he pushes the agenda they wish they could. You can love them and sing their praises but as for me and mines screw them.

Not to give them any credit, but if one knew the political history of the song Talking Out The Side of Your Neck, LSU in general might have played a part in why that song was created.  In the late 70's, there was a political controversy when Reagan spoke at LSU's campus and SU's band was made to perform.  The controversy almost derailed Reagan's campaign.  A former SU Jukebox member co-author the song for Cameo. I'm sure none of the LSU students know the political history of the song.



FASCINATING. Thanks for the history lesson.

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.
