Howard Students Feel Disrespected By Residents Who Think The Campus Should Be Moved

Dismiss

There has been a lot of discussion via social media about the disrespect that Howard University students feel from some of the surrounding residents. Complaints of people using the campus as a dog park or picnic area by those who don’t attend the University or understand the importance of it. Shocking right? But this is unfortunately true. Fox5 was live on campus and spoke to some of the students and residents.

“They’re in part of D.C. So they have to work within DC. If they don’t want to be in DC,

then move the campus.”

So People were outraged by this mans comments and even more disgusted by his disregard for Howard’s history and importance to our community. Many are saying this would never happen at a PWI (Predominantly White Institution) like Georgetown or American University, why should this Historically Black University be moved?!

Below are of the responses via @angieangeam social media.

 

So where do we go from here? How do we establish the boundaries? The conversation on gentrification is continuing but let’s all remember the dogs have nothing to do with this.

    Howard’s property should be Howard’s property and no one else’s. And so that it is private, they have a right to protect their property
    even if it takes arrest. No one does white universities like that and if they did. The school along with the police would take measures
    to vacate private property. So Howard get tough and protect your property and like the late Malcolm X stated “And by any means necessary.”

    It’s a college campus and the neighboring community should respect it as such. Walking through is one thing, but it is not a public park for walking dogs, dogs running around on or off leash and certainly not for picnicing and sunbathing without benefit of tuition. It is a school and while it has an open campus, there should be unspoken boundaries and respect that need to be exercised.

    Get that gay trolling blade with his stinking dog off campus. Build a wall and keep out undesirable whites. Just like I wish we could build a wall around this website and keep out white devils. They are sick. Hate black people so bad, they troll black websites with lies. Just like Fat Sarah Huckabut. The only thing she slips into is the pig pen for bacon. You knew she was a liar. Now the white man has documented her fat lying behind. I love these lowlife white people. They are so insecure and small. Keep following us dogs.

    @BP – you are a freakin liar!! You don’t know a damn thing about Howard! You are just some TROLL lurking on this site! Go back to your double wide and latch onto your Mama’s tit! BAN!!!

  5. So, here’s my idea. Get the entire community together, and take over the grounds of, say, the Washington Monument, and when #GentrifyingGeorge and his buddies complain about how they’re ‘disrespecting’ the grounds, tell them that if they don’t like it, they can move the monument.
    Obviously, this is not actually a feasible thing, but it makes just as much sense as moving the entire campus of a 150 year old college..

      Howard University is a private institution. The administration can ban undesirables from the campus. This man with the beard, the tattoos and the dog is definitely undesirable.This is white arrogance at its worse. He should get the same treatment that black people get at a PWI – stopped, asked for an ID,
      and harassed and pinned down by police officers.

        The administration enrolls undesirables Do you know what the 4 year graduation rate at Howard is? Less than 10%. Pathetic
