Good discussion. I wasn't sure if that was one of the students in the building online or not. The one that was talking about how they were cleaning the building. I'm miffed as to why the group didn't go stronger on the point of tuition raising in light of all of the financial help that came from the fed during COVID-19 and M. Scott. Seems that some of the funds should have been used to offset tuition increases.

This was actually a very good informative meeting.

B66 you spoke very well. I also think the other alumni spoke very well about protest during their time and how it is molded into the fabric of Howard University.

The current student Erica was a very weak beginning though. I think shes a poor representative of the current protests. Students are protesting substandard housing units. Here we have an adjacent bernie bro who is about as old as I am(a man with ~10 years professional experience) complaining about housing in DC being too expensive for her: A woman who has not worked a true job I suspect since high school.

Honestly I feel she, like Saint Bernie, is someone who is completely reluctant to get out in the workforce and work. Bernie Sanders was a guy with an Ivy league education people could only dream of that sat on his ass for decades and had his family on welfare. Poor black people who never had the opportunity he did had to subsidize his family because he was a lazy prick, and I feel like this Erica girl is going down the same path.

Yes, housing is expensive in Washington DC.


Yes, Erica you are almost 30. Its time to get a job and pay for housing. Or move somewhere more affordable. Being able to call yourself, for the better part of 15 or so years, a student does not guarantee you a shield from the economic realities surrounding housing in DC.

Actually I was too nice in my summary of her. She is 30 now. She needs to secure her own housing. Even if Howard wasnt selling off upperclassmen living I'd tell her she needs to secure her own housing. Why is this 30 year old trying to use up housing for kids a decade her junior?  :no: :no: :no:

NoMore,

Did Erica say SHE didn't have housing in her opening?

NO, she didn't!  I have the tape.  The tape will soon be available.

So, what's up with you?

You got deep and dark-yellow earwax?  Got a vivid imagination?  Or, you just don't like that beautiful deep brown skin color that Erica has?  Are you a woman hater? A Howard hater?

Every time I regain a bit of my optimism for you, you destroy it with your ignorance and anti-Blackness.

IGNORANCE!!

You DON'T KNOW what she's been doing with her life in the intervening years since she first enrolled at Howard.

You accuse her of something that she's NOT doing.  I'm guessing it is because you cannot fathom the empathy she has for OTHER students because you don't have the capacity for empathy. You have demonstrated that MANY times on this board as you attack Black people with falsehoods often derived from your own (English) miseducation and the white-washing of your mind.

You said,..."I honestly feel..."

Based on WHAT FACTS, FOOL??

She's been working.  Just because she's not in corporate life, does not make her work less hard or less valuable.  You need to get a grip, youngsta.

Maaaaaaybeeeeeeeeeee one day, NoMore,
it will occur to you that it is obvious
to others that your self-consciousness
about your own shortcomings and insecurities
are on blatant display when you succumb to
your felt-need to tear down others.

Oh,.... and thanks for your positive assessment of the discussion.

Congrats bro!  Already have plans at that time. Hoping there is a podcast or recorded zoom session for watching later.

Recording is coming - annotated, because it went quite long.
With the "notes," you'll be able to zero in on what you want to see.

So far, we have lots of positive feedback.

All of y'all are invited to sign the Howard Alumni United petition advocating the reinstatement of the Affiliate Trustees.

Meanwhile, we are supporting our students in the current protest.

Thanks to FAMU Alum - you know who you are - for the offer of advice on establishing an INDEPENDENT group for Alums. 

Howard had one decades ago, but it was converted/disbanded in favor of one that has - over the years - increasingly become a creature (and captive) of the University.

It is now time (AGAIN) for ALUMNI INDEPENDENCE!!

Why don't they call for "Heels Up" to join them. Housing was just as F'd up when she was a student.
