Have you heard? Amid the current climate of black folk and police nationwide, President Tashni Dubroy recently came up with the
stupid idea to invite and publicize the possibility of a Raleigh PD substation on Shaw University campus. Just in case you didn’t know, Shaw University has had campus police for decades, providing a variety of public services including emergency medical assistance, investigating suspicious circumstances, and responding to and investigating criminal matters. Patrols are conducted throughout the Shaw community 24 hours a day. When we were in school, the police chief affectionately known as “CHIEF” knew us all by name. To get caught up, read the following links:

Now, take a deep breath and prepare to read this scathing e-mail that we received from a very reliable source. This communication was written by a board member who happens to be on the executive committee. How much longer will our board remain silent about the havoc that Dr. Dubroy is causing? The long-term implications of the absence of qualified leadership will be the death of Shaw University. A conversation with concerned alumni is past due. It’s time for a serious reality check. There’s no amount of chicken dinners alumni can sell in order to save our school from its demise.
