Historically Black College In Hot Water After School Agrees To Play At Donald Trump’s Inauguration
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!
