New Happenings

I haven't posted a post in a while, so I decided to catch everyone up on the recent happenings.

I have started my Junior year back in school during August, so I've been quite busy. Dealing with housing, financial aid, registration, family and friends, and my own personal life I have been running around like a chicken with it's head cut off.

One day in our Student Amenities Building this young lady came up to me and told me some disturbing news.

She told me that a certain predominately Caucasian school was trying to partner up with a HBCU. No. I am NOT racist. In addition, I do NOT frown upon the fact that they are trying to partner up. However, I do frown upon the fact that they are trying to make the HBCU's dependent and the PWC's independent.

I feel that if we do (so happen) to "partner" up with these institutions that we are going to loose not only tradition but history in the mist of it all.

I know first-hand that my institution was founded by majority white people. I also know that it took a lot for African-Americans to claim this land as their own, and it took a lot for my institution to become the extraordinary university that it has become today.

If you can, please just take some time out to give your support for this matter. Just by sending a letter, a fax, a phone call, or even word-of-mouth would help this "plan" be unsuccessful.
