“So disagreement with the music justifies protesting a bone marrow drive?”

“No one protested the drive. As mentioned in the earlier comments, Nelly pulled out. He did not have to have the sit down and would have still been able to use our campus for his drive. This whole exchange just establishes that people only pay attention to what they want to. It was a small group of women that wanted the sit down. Spelman was still willing to do the drive and still went through with the drive. Had a match been found it would have went to her!”

“Didn't agree with the protest when it happened. Don't agree with it now.”

“10 women that wanted to have a conversation and who were ALL REGISTERED to give their bone marrow (which is an EXTREMELY PAINFUL MEDICAL PROCEDURE) DID have the bone marrow drive AFTER Nelly withdrew. Consider this: these women registered and STILL had the Bone Marrow Drive WITHOUT NELLY... Who is emotional and BITTER now? The FACTS should bring this subject into perspective better. Now Nelly is talking about hitting the VARIOUS sisters who COULD have been a bone marrow MATCH for his sister.”

“That is the problem with Nelly, he doesn't care either. I applaud them for standing up for women.”

“As a woman I agree with you.
They could've done this AFTER the drive. Sometimes we don't know how to pick and choose our battles.
Also the same campus hosted a forum with of all people Karinne Steffans? Not a good look.”

“she stole from Toni Braxton too. Years ago she was on Oprah telling her story about how she had to file bankruptcy and had to sell some assets to cover tax debts and other bills that Pebbles and LA Reid racked up in her name for concert appearances. Oprah for her part treated and spoke to Toni real nasty on the show, viewers to Oprah's show wrote in and complained about the way she treated Toni.”

“Exactly! That's why I have to give her the side eye when she starts throwing shade at Chilli or anyone else in the group.”

“Very astute. She has history of being rather distrustful.”
“So you don't think that the funds above could have gone to other struggling families or atleast that we should look at the situation a little closer? To them $65K USD per year is an extremely small amount, but to others this could be life changing.
Why does it matter what the dollar amount of their tax burden is? For most, once you look at it from a percentage perspective they are paying lass than the middle class. Much less.”
“Agreed. We need to start preparing ourselves now, which means pushing for an more skilled labor force overall. The addition of automation will eliminate some jobs, but will certainly create others.
Also, labor in those cheaper foreign countries will continue to rise exponentially to a point where it's cheaper to keep the logistics chain closer to home... I just hope our leaders have some foresight on this. Also folks in the private sector who work for multi-national companies will have to do their part as well.”
“BS. Fundamentally good, but the practice as it has become today is overreaching/racially bias/unconstitutional and ineffective based on % increases of stops vs. guns off of the street. And this doesn't even talk about how it's just bad policing. Also look
I think it's safe to say, based on recent cases, that most of the illegal guns come from the South as well. They should be going after the source.”
