I have a question for “Sidney Wright for the Editorial Board”: has it been determined that FAMU students perpetrated these criminal acts?
If not, it’s premature to jump to the conclusion that FAMU students are feeding into the negative image.
For all we know, these crimes were carried out by folks who have no affiliation with the school other than they saw an opportunity for easy pickings. Just because they were Black doesn’t automatically mean they were in any way affiliated with FAMU (students, faculty nor staff).
If it is eventually determined that the criminals (’cause that’s what they are) are in no way affiliated with FAMU, then I fully well expect Wright and the Editorial board to print a timely, full blown retraction AND apology . . .
