...............WHOA!!.......WTF is THIS^^^post all about? Look, no doubt your humble poster and others don't think leaving MEAC is a particularly prudent move by the Aggies. And, YES!, the conference WILL suffer as a result of the Aggies' withdrawing. But to condemn them to all eternity is a tad over-the-top, don't you think?It seems to me you are taking your personal beef about your perceived diss by A&T against your school, and are encouraging the rest of us to join in. Naah, homie, that's a "regional" conflict you have with the largest HBCU in the Tar Heel.Look, your humble poster gets a kick out of f'ing with the Aggies on this board because of their frustration about not defeating FAMU as much as they would like. But A&T is a fine school and football program and I wish them all the best!
I think that A&T's move to the Big South is such a sellout move that "ALL HBCUs" should boycott them. This is far bigger than some sport. They're saying that our sister MEAC schools ain't good enough, then want to keep playing some,just to make money to pay for them telling us to go to hell. They claim its the travel costs, but they won't travel 23 miles for a guaranteed sellout with WSSU. They also want to keep FAMU, and they are the furthest school away from their campus. Some of you will think that it doesn't effect you, but it effects us all. We need to let them know that their are consequences for doing this move.I'm asking all black people to boycott these fools. Even with their posts on this forum.
I don’t think Hilton is racist, but I do think he doesn’t fully value or appreciate HBCU culture, and that’s a deal breaker for me. I highly doubt a Black AD (let’s say Milton Overton), at a PWC (let’s say Kennesaw State), could convince them to leave a predominately White conference to join an HBCU conference, no matter the benefits. I highly doubt Hilton would even recommend that a PWC join an HBCU conference if he were AD at a PWC.Black America is the only entity who’s always quick to give up what we have thinking the grass is somehow greener on the other side, when in reality, all we need is right before us.
Definitely! Some argue that integration wreaked havoc on the black community and there still is a bit of apprehension there when dealing with such things.I remember when New Destiny (a local Black mega church in the Orlando area) brought in Paula White as it’s interim Pastor after its founding Pastor Zachary Tim’s died. Many were disappointed when the board decided to make Paula White the permanent pastor instead of Tim’s ex-wife, and you still had many members there bragging about having Paula White as their pastor and how she routinely has TD Jakes come in to preach and is on tv, etc... Fast-forward to the present day, you have a white woman leading what ONCE was the biggest Black mega church in the Orlando area, and this same woman is Trumps “Spiritual advisor”. Those same once proud members have abandoned ship and their beloved New Destiny and all its assets are firmly in the grasp of Paula White. Meanwhile, Zachary Tim’s ex-wife worked hard and has built her own mega church from the ground UP that now has more members than New Destiny has today.We have to protect our institutions in Black America whether it’s our neighborhoods facing gentrification, churches, colleges, even the black family structure! Any Rattler can tell you how vigilant we are concerning any decision made at FAMU in making sure it doesn’t aide FSU in their attempt to take what we have. I don’t know NCATs complete history, but can tell you those same feelings of protecting what ours is something we all have experienced. DTs post alluded to that.I only hope both Hampton and NCAT are able to thrive in the Bug South and winter be duped into losing what’s theirs. Make no doubt about it, the Big South discussed race when adding them and whatever conclusion they came to in their heads didn’t include them losing anything, but gaining a lot! Hopefully those gains won’t cost Hampton and NCAT in the long run.Hampton and NCAT are both fine HBCUs. They actually are two of our BEST HBCUs and that’s what’s so alarming about them going to the Big South. White America has always loved our BEST and went after it and historically we have always lost it in the long run. Like New Destiny, we aren’t eager to see our best passed off. We hope that doesn’t happen, but if it does, like Tims ex wife did, we will rebuild. The MEAC will be fine. We just don’t wanna lose a lot in the process.
