As all bourgie colored people surely know, Morehouse and Howard square-off on the football field this Saturday. The rivalry among HBCU football teams is a particular breed; the fact that most respectable blacks live but a couple paychecks from the projects can be quickly evidenced by the threats of weave pulling and wig-splitting which inevitably arise in any discussion over the matter.
@tanehisi I apologize in advance for what Morehouse is about to do to Howard!
It's correct that Howard's football has fallen since the days of Jay "Sky" Walker. But let us not forget that a great HBCU should excel at producing men and women (at least in the case of Howard) who can always be said, without smirking, to be a credit to their sable race.
"The political establishment is not going to elect Herman Cain. The political elite's are not going to support me," Cain said. "ABC, CBS and NBC they're still in denial that I'm even a legitimate candidate."And why do members of the media treat Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann of Wisconsin and former Republican Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin so "viciously"? "Because they know that Michele Bachmann or Sarah Palin is going to draw a lot of the women vote away from the Democrat Party," Cain said."They are scared to death of that, if they were to run and get the nomination. They are doubly scared that a real black man might run against Barack Obama."
