Alabama’s old­est pri­vate his­tor­i­cal­ly black col­lege, Tal­lade­ga Col­lege, has agreed to per­form at Don­ald Trump’s inau­gu­ra­tion. Estab­lished in 1867, Tal­lade­ga Col­lege was ful­ly accred­it­ed in 2009 and has a stu­dent body of 1,500.

“The Pres­i­den­tial Inau­gu­ral Com­mit­tee announced Fri­day that the Tal­lade­ga Col­lege March­ing Tor­na­does was among 40 groups, includ­ing high school bands and mil­i­tary orga­ni­za­tions, sched­uled to per­form in the parade.”

Need­less to say the news isn’t going over too well.

Tal­lade­ga Col­lege is not return­ing calls or emails seek­ing com­ment. Mean­while Trump is stock­ing his cab­i­net with bil­lion­aires, Wall Street exec­u­tives and white nation­al­ist sym­pa­thiz­ers. #god­hel­pus

How about as a peo­ple we be proud that this his­tor­i­cal­ly black school has this oppor­tu­ni­ty. How are we going to bridge the gap on race rela­tions by con­tin­u­al­ly sep­a­rat­ing our­selves? How as a coun­try are the­se issues going to be healed if we con­tin­ue broad­en­ing the gap?


That’s a tough call. I hope they do well any­way.


I say let them play! It is an HONOR to be at a nation­al event, and a pres­i­den­tial inau­gu­ra­tion is no dif­fer­ent.
