Re: “The recent nice weather has brought out the bugs, bees and Bible thumpers

I love this article! You had me dying laughing! Great perspective about Bible Thumpers and warm weather. They can be some very persistent people who don't like the word 'no'! Lol

Re: “The demise of HBCUs

The unfortunate part about the demise of HBCU's is that people no longer support them. Think about the CIAA here in Charlotte every year. People pay hundreds of dollars to go party, drink, and throw it up! :) However, they won't spend that same money to attend games and support the financial health of the HBCU's in the conference. The games were empty this year which means the schools missed out on funding to provide scholarships to students and overall maintaining the University. I did not attend an HBCU; however, your article is correct..unless something changes, smaller HBCU's like Barber-Scotia will continue to disappear. Great article!

Re: “Ain't nobody got time for another YouTube stereotype

I also agree with your description of how the media exploits African-Americans. It's almost like they go find the most ghetto person to ask questions. The media is constantly looking for individuals that will allow them to have the next "viral video of the day." It's unfortunate that they think African-Americans are easy targets. Sweet Brown ended up in commercials and had a makeover just from the 15 mins of fame. Now, granted I do have people in my family that behave like these two ladies, but I would be outraged if they were exploited all over YouTube and the Internet. Great article Charles!
