Talladega College, one of THE OG HBCUs in Alabama, is facing some harsh criticism.
The Marching Tornadoes, as their band is known, will be in attendance at Trump’s inauguration later this month, but not everyone is happy about it.
Being an HBCU, one would expect the college to gracefully, or not so gracefully, turn down the invite to perform at the inauguration given the fact that Trump has a rather racist background.
Shall we go on?
The college has refused to comment, but the Twitterverse is buzzing!

That last tweet, tho…hmmmm.
We understand it is a huge deal to perform at a president’s election, but this president…ehhh.
Do you think the band should perform? Sound off in the comments!
Colin Kaepernick, Steph Curry Want In On Carolina Panthers Ownership!
Colin Kaepernick might’ve just eluded to the desire to own an NFL team over playing for the league.
As Kaepernick’s journey remains unclear with the NFL, one thing is now known for sure, he wants to own a team. But get this, he’s not alone.
Following the announcement by Carolina Panthers owner, Jerry Richardson, that he is selling the team, Diddy immediately started to campaign. “I would like to buy @panthers. Spread the word,” he tweeted. “There are no majority African American NFL owners. Let’s make history.”
In response, not only did Kaepernick tweet that he wants to be part of “the ownership group,” but Golden State Warriors star, Steph Curry, also expressed he wants “in.”
Diddy followed up with,”Holla at me, let’s get it.”
To have a team owned by Diddy, Curry and Kaepernick would flip the league upside down and paint the picture for change. But what could they do for the league?
According to Diddy, if his dream came to fruition, the first thing he would do is address the Kaepernick “situation.” It was last season that the then 49ers quarterback kneeled in protest against racial inequality and police brutality.
The protest sparked national outrage, division across the NFL and even lead to Colin being blackballed — but could Diddy be the answer to the league’s controversial discussion?
The bigger question is; would Colin choose to take the corporate side over the field?
