Rep. Bennie Thompson: Supporting Historically Black Colleges Vital to Our Future – and Our Nation’s Security

Right on point. This is a long overdue op-ed. Thanks Rep Thompson. I am a graduate of an HBCU (Bowie State University), and what a great way to improve diversity in the Federal Government Intelligence Agencies, by recruiting at HBCUs

On a sad note, here is another prime example of why Civil Rights is still an issue in this country.  Atlanta’s police department have a serious problem, and after reading this follow up story, it backs the notion that racism and police brutality is not something in the past or made up in the minds of crazy black folks.   In the midst of all of this, the Mayor is backing the police chief.  It is quite sad to see this happening and the We laugh or criticize activist like Al Sharpton or Jessie Jackson when they march and demand equal protection under the law.
