You already know…


The Lady Aggies are one of the last all-black women’s college swimming teams in the country, and in 2013 the team was in danger of being cut due to funding. After public outcry and petitioning, the decision was reversed and the team swims on.

The team could partner with a hair-care company and get sponsorship money in exchange for advertising aimed at BW who are sporty, on vacation, or during the summer.

College athletes have strict regulations and can’t do that (see the multiple stories of football players bringing in millions to their schools and still going home hungry after practice). The NCAA’s argument is that if they make money that makes them pros so they will be ineligible for scholarships and will be ineligible to be student athletes

Please stop putting this young white lady mouthing yass queen in your articles…the same thing we complain about, belittling others to lift ourselves, you are doing it. How would you feel if a white website did that to a black woman. Rise above that nonsense….
