Happy Homecoming?

| 71 Comments | No TrackBacks

I remember about a year ago I attended a meeting/discussion--hosted by Zeta Phi Beta Sorority--that focused on the topic of police brutality during Homecoming on our (IUP's) campus and in our surrounding areas (off campus). I remember some students had concerns with the intensity of police brutality during Homecoming and some who feared that black students would be targeted over white students. Police who attended the meeting as well assured students that black students would not be targeted.

This year, students had the same concerns...

Jazmyne Walker, a 20-year-old IUP junior and Child and Family Studies major, expressed her concerns for the Homecoming weekend,

"I noticed that there were six police men on horses surrounding the Underground--a night club on Philadelphia St-- but there were hardly any police men on "Frat Row"," She said. "There are just as many people intoxicated at the Underground as there are at Frat Row, so why is it any different in the security level?"

I want to know about your Homecoming experience this past weekend; did you notice the same thing that Jazmyne noticed or did you not see any difference? I also want to know your opinions on why it may seem like the presence of the police is greater when there's a party with predominately black attendees.

Well it appears this internet site is somewhat sizzling, congratulations towards the owner! I try to go through as much as feasible on the web when I’ve extra time.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

Hey there, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, terrific blog!

Hiya! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share. Thanks!

Agree with you however most people don't even realize this.

Wonderful blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I've been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thanks

I'm really loving the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A number of my blog visitors have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any tips to help fix this problem?

Another great post, thanks for your efforts.

Are you planning any new posts coming soon?

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm going to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

Do you know where I could get more information on the topic?
