“If You are Not Black Do Not Say It”

Black people’s use of the word “nigga” is controversial due to its derivation from the word “nigger,” which is a racial slur directed at black people.

When the word is utilized between black people, it is used as a term of endearment in informal social settings. The common use of the word within the black community was a way to dilute its degrading effect through embracing the word amongst the community. When...

Why Do Students Not Want to be Bothered by Public Safety

Aisja Cunningham LINCOLN UNIVERSITY- Public Safety is present to ensure the safety and protection of Lincoln University’s campus. However, black students do not view police officers in general as their protectors; they view them as someone who harasses and criminalizes them. According to Lincoln University’s website, its main campus is patrolled by armed, sworn Police Officers commissioned by the Pennsylvania Municipal Police Officers Education & Training Commission. The Department of Public Safety provides services of prevention, detection, and investigation of criminal and non-criminal incidents. As a historically black institution, we must acknowledge the social justice issue that black millennials have with police presence as it relates to our university. Due to thei...

Trial on FAMU Hazing Death

By Armeesha C. Piedra ORLANDO, Fla.--On Oct. 27, the four band members of Florida A & M University’s marching band began trial after being accused of initiating new members through a hazing process. Darryl Cearnel, Aaron Golson, Benjamin McNamee and Dante Martin, who pled not guilty, face charges for hazing and manslaughter, three years after Robert Champion, drum major for the Marching 100, died from being beaten throughout the ritual. The death of Champion, 26, put a huge focus on hazing at FAMU and other colleges, which caused the band to be suspended for a year and for FAMU’s President James H. Ammons to resign.
