    I spent the better part of yesterday on fb saying just about everything you said here to some black folk whose responses left me dazed and confused. Leaving the racial angle aside, I pointed out to black people who were giddy over his having mentioned HBCU's in his speech that this dude's own lawyers refused to meet with him one on one because they learned not to trust anything he told them. And yes, he's stiffed numerous vendors, contractors and suppliers out of money over the years. My question as to whether a proven liar and con artist can be trusted to tell the truth fell on deaf ears as these black people - WHO WERE INITIALLY ANTI-TRUMP & railed against him during the campaign, suddenly lost their minds and softened their stances and high fived each other as if to say "WE'S FREE! WE'S FREE!" because a white man who's a proven liar and con artist spoke some words that were pleasing to their ears. When I raised the common sense question of why we should trust a proven liar and con man, one of them suggested that I was lacking in intelligence for even thinking like that. I kid you not.

    Last but not least, with regard to begging the enemy and oppressor of black people for stuff, it occurred to me a long time ago that the vast majority of black people don't look at white supremacists in positions of influence and authority as enemies and oppressors. Rather, they look at them as a role models and saviors. That's the only way to explain why we as a people continue to put our faith in them, despite being lied to, insulted, spat on and conned by these people time and again.

    Tell the truth fam,

    Stockholm Syndrome........ people either don't know what it is, don't understand and/or don't care.

    It's one thing if a person has no other option, it's a whole other thing if they can and should do better.

    Peace

    Peace,

    As a woman who has done volunteer work for your own HBCU regarding campaigning for funds, what do you think is a better solution than going to the white, racist people asking for money?

    Peace

    As a woman who volunteers for her beloved alma mater.... I know the work we do only supports alumni activities. We have to send our children.... we have to send other people's children... We have to stop supporting white institutions... That's the only way to save our schools

    Morehouse College President: We Got Played

    upload_2017-3-3_10-16-19.png

    There is an old African proverb that has been passed down from the ancestors through generations of black people that goes like this: “Never trust anyone who lets people put their feet on the couch.”


    After meeting with the Trump administration for two days and reviewing Cheddar Bob’s executive order on HBCUs, Morehouse College President John Wilson Jr. issued a statement Thursday admitting that over 100 HBCU presidents went to the White House, and all they got was a lousy Instagram photo.
