(1)- Bethune-Cookman University is Predominantly an African American School (Black) if you will?
(2)- Memory time- Let us once again go back a little bit in time if you will?
The governor elections for January 4, 2011 and November 4, 2014?
Predominantly black voting districts in Florida were either shut down, harass or blocked by armed guards, plus people were challenged for a change in their ID’s!

Florida Gov. Rick Scott received a prestigious award hundreds, more like thousands, of people didn’t want him to get.
On Wednesday, Scott and four others received the Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Leadership Award, which recognizes dedication to education and the community.
Absolutely nothing about the other four?
Many students and alumni were against giving the governor the award, named for the founder of Bethune-Cook man University..
“He is not someone who created laws in this state that align with the principles of communities of color,” said student Jasmine Burney.
Burney started an online petition aimed at preventing Scott from receiving award. She said 800 people signed that petition. Some of those who signed the petition protested at the Ocean Center.
“I’m perfectly fine with being an army of one or an army of four. Eight-hundred people signed the petition,” said Burney.
