Before I Go--A Little HBCU Trash Talk
I hear the other HU has crowned a non-black homecoming queen. And apparently, old girl is upset that she isn't getting the royal treatment. So she wrote Obama
"I am hoping that perhaps you would be able to make an appearance to my campus, Hampton University, so that my fellow Hamptonians can stop focusing so much on the color of my skin and doubting my abilities to represent," she wrote in a letter posted Sunday on Congress.org, "but rather be proud of the changes our nation is making toward accepting diversity."
Wait....Hold on...Hampton has a homecoming?
In all seriousness, I'm betting that most folks at Hampton aren't paying much attention. With one exception, I can't name a single homecoming queen from all my years at Howard. And I couldn't have done it then.
