-4 local FAMU Alumni Upset Over Alleged Hazing Death BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Since the death of Florid a A&M University Drum Major Robert Champion last Sat urday allegations have been swirling about what happened Family members of the dead student have retained at torneys and announced they will file a lawsuit against the school. Champion a llegedly died from injuries he sustained during a hazing incident. FAMU Alumni Freddie Shellman, said when he heard the news he was shocked I thought they h a d stopped doing that stuff when I wa s still in school. I definitel y don t think Dr. Julian White (the band director) should have been fired He had noth ing to do with it. He had sus pended at least 20 band members just before the Florida Classic for hazing I think it's wrong to punish the entire band for the actions of a few. I think this needs to be thoroughl y investi gated before any final action i s taken. I still find it hard to be lieve something like this hap pened." Andre Walker said he 1 thinks it s important for people to understand the difference between initiations and hazing. When I was in school, we called it being initiated not hazing. Every member of the band at some point has gone through this. When white kids started getting hurt, it became a third-degree felony and given the name hazing instead of ini tiation. "I've had to experience it as an athlete and band member. When it becomes hazing, that's taking it too far. In my mind, when I hear hazing, that means to do bodily harm. The act of initiation is a tradition among African Americans and part of our history When it became hazing, that's when it had nothing to do with being initi ated." Walker said when he was attending FAMU, you went through one process. "Champion was a first year drum major. He went to do his little ritual where he had to run through a bus with his head covered and was hit It got out of hand, obviously and unfortunately a young man died and we don t know if what happened on that bus had anything to do with it "Dr. White took a stand on this issue a long time ago and has never condoned this act. He s even gone to school administrators and com plained about it, but no action was taken. I really feel b a d for him and his wife. He suffer e d a massive stroke la s t year but still continued doing his job. Now tha t he s fully recov e red, the y want to toss him out. I h ate to see what's going on now, but we re dealing with a new generation now and they do things with less compas sion. This incident has affected a lot of people and this is a sad time for the school and the young man' s family." Walker said he also thinks it was wrong to physically es cort Dr. White off the cam pus Dr. Carolyn Collins, a member of the National Alumni Group, said they are w a iting for the investigations to be completed and consider what' s been reported s o far a s alleg a tion s In a sta t ement from FAMU NAA Pr es ident Tommy Mitchell, Sr., it wa s the FAMU NAA is extending th e ir he a rtfelt s ympath y a nd prayer s to the famil y of belo v ed Drum Major Robert Champion. "We sta nd re a d y to s upport Florida A&M Univer s ity 's pre s ident and the appointed t as k force that is investigatin g th e marching band' s practices and circumst a nces surroundin g the death of Mr. Champion. Under state law th e FAMU Board of Trustee s i s ul tim a t e l y respon s ibl e for impl e menting policies that go vern the university and its leadership No person organization or e ntity, outside the university president or the Board of Trustees has the authority to dictate the hiring or firing process at this university. Therefore we endorse onl y le gitimate and administrativ e procedures required to bring deliberate and analytical con clusions to both the univ e r s ity and law enforcement in ves ti -ACCIDE gations in process, based on accuracy and facts." The statement further says as offici a l investigations into Champion's death proceed, the FAMU NAA stands with Champion's family and the university, prepared to exam ine the full scope of its findings and to support its recommen dations We s upport the mi s sion of FAMU, and in that spirit we support the care, development, and welfare of our most valu able assets -our students We support all actions taken for the betterment of Florida A&M Uni v ersity. A s t atement from FAMU Boa rd of Trustee Chairman Dr. Solomon L. Badger, sa id Sinc e th e unfortu nate incident, I have been in constant discus s ion with President Ammons. He has re sponded a ppropriatel y to this tragic s ituation and he has t a ken m eas ure s to get to th e r o ot c a us e of what happened. "Dr. Ammons has c on v ened an independent task forc e to review patterns of be havior b y th e band and to mak e recommendations re garding matter s that should b e addre s s e d at the administra ti v e l evel. H e h as s u s p e nd e d performances of all band en sembles including the March ing 100 and has started appropri a te person n e l action s to also addre s s the current sit uation. The statement al s o said prior to the Florida Classic there were other measures taken to ensure that students in the band were aware of not only the university polic y but also the penalties under the state s anti-hazing law.

The local branch of the NAACP has seen better days. Yet, the Corporation to Develop Communities of Tampa, founded by Chloe Coney remains to remind us that the struggle to protect our community, our children and our legacy continues to be waged in blood: our children's blood. Consequently, the other day, members of the Corporation to Develop Communities of Tampa (CDC) met to decide what it and interested community members would do to stop the killings of teenagers throughout East Tampa. For their efforts, we thank the CDC for its courage and foresight. But much more is needed from many other organizations. The Tampa-Hillsborough Urban League needs desperately to be revived. The local branch of the NAACP begs"to regain the power and influence it once wielded. In the meantime, the CDC must be assisted by Free Masons, Eastern Stars, Shriners, Sisters of Isis, Black Fraternities, Black Sororities, the Hillsborough Public School System, the City of Tampa and the Hillsborough County government as well as a Tampa Police Department, which must realize its power is defined by its uj community relationship. Z Meanwhile, our children are murdering each other daily. Their self-hatred is as ancient as slavery on a W plantation. We thought we had killed it, but it followed en us home. But we are not its prey. This hateful beast has c( o set in on our children. In agony, we ask, "Is this the way a: we shall die on the streets of Tampa, by our own chilg dren's hands? Has our historical struggle come to this?" LL One Nation, Individual P erhaps, futurist Alvin Toffler said it best in his book Power Shift, when he warned America that its future threat might not come from a national power,. but from one individual who had taken upon himself or herself the monumental responsibility of starting World War III. Just recently, such a nightmare was revived in New York City as a bloated, unkempt, so-called "lone-wolf'' was arrested for possession of pipe-bomb explosives and paraded before news cameras. The suspect's intent was to blow up vehicles, which carried returning Afghanistan and Iraqi war veterans as well as to kill American governmental representatives. Meanwhile, his apprehension was being presented and praised as an example of the New York City Police Department's state-of-the-art efficiency and dogged determination. 'o:t w And though we cheered NYPD for avoiding what could 0 have been another unimaginable one-man-catastrophe, we did, indeed, have one question. Surprise! Super Comminee Fails Last Monday, the deficit reducing non-partisan committee announced that they were hopelessly dead locked and could not come up with a bi-partisan agreement Are you surprised? Any body who is surprised has to be dumber than a rock. The Republicans on the Super Committee came to the table with the deeply embed ded pledge not to agree to anything that would raise taxes. The Democrats came to the table dead-set on anything that did not include-at least raising tax es on millionaires a nd big corporations. With both sides being adamantly opposed to each other, the y were doomed to fail before they ever had their first meeting. I knew it, the Republicans knew it, the De mocrats knew it and our eter nally optimistic president knew it. The Super Committee met for three months and came up with absolutely nothing. The members of the super com mittee are not to blame. They went to the committee meet ings and pledged to support their party's position. I sure hope that these meetings did n't cost taxpayers money. If it did, it was just one big waste of money, time and ink. The nation wants tax-loop holes closed and they want taxes raised on the wealthy. Republicans have turned a deaf ear toward the public's desires. A Storv 01 Justice You Mav Not Have Heard Nearly 100 years ago in Byhallia, Mississippi, a rural town in North Missis sippi an unlikely and seldom told story of justice unfolded amidst the stories of Jim Crow, lynching and Ku Klux Klan violence. In 1919, a Black man by the name of Ben Ingram became the first Black man in the South to be acquit ted by an all-white jury of killing a white man Yes, you heard correctly. During an era when so to 100 lynchings a year were taking place in the South an all-male, all-white jury ac quitted Ben Ingram of killing his white neighbor Green Brumley. According to news ac counts, Ingram and Brumley had a long-running dispute over the boundary be tween their large farms. Both men were two of the wealthi est landowners in tl1e area. Ingram hired a land surveyor to plot the boundary for his 1,000-acre farm correctly since Brumley had taken the liberty to encroach on Ingram's land by planting crops and building a barn and other outhouses on Ingram's land. Each year, Brumley ex tended the boundary. Angered by Ingram's hiring of a surveyor, Brumley fol lowed Ingram to town and made it known that he intended to kill Ingram. A white businessman hid Ingram to help avoid a con frontation in town. However when Brumley later con fronted Ingram at Ingram's farm and fired on Ingram with a pistol, Ingram defended himself with a shotgun. Even though wounded, Brumley tried to reload his pistol, which caused Ingram to grab the pistol and deliver a fatal blow to Brumley's head. They made it clear right after Barack Obama was elected, that their ultimate goal was to make Mr. Obama a one-time presi dent. A study of the past three years clearly illustrates that the Republicans have just two things in mind. Those two things are: to prevent the president from getting anything done and to protect the money of the wealthy. The press and talking heads shouldn't make too much out of the failure of the Super Committee to come up with a debt-reducing plan. Unless these people are dumber than a rock, they know that the committee was doomed to fail. Automatic spending cuts kick in during 2013. These spending cuts have been pre determined and were in the same bill that created the super committee. President Obama has pledged to veto any bill that attempts to stop the automatic trigger spend ing cuts. The president must stand strong and tall. At least soo friends and neighbors (black and white) converged on Ingram's land, built a bonfire and stayed throughout the night to pro tect Ingram and his family. Reportedly, Ingram slept with a pistol under his pillow for the remainder of his life. Upon hearing the "not guilty" jury verdict in a courtroom m Holly Springs, Mississippi, Northern newspapers made the jury verdict national headlines Indeed, Ben Ingram and his wife and 17 children con tinued to live on his farm and to prosper. Descendants of the Ingrams still own 700 acres of the farm and plan to develop a documentary film and book about Ben Ingram's story. They consider the story to be one of a rare symbol of jus tice in a part of the world where justice often came without a trial in the form of a noose. And just when we thought we had heard it all History lets us know that we don t know anything. Yes, both jus tice and injustice for Blacks coexisted in the South during a time most of us believed in justice was our.lone compan ion. So, until we speak once more, I bid you peace, knowl edge, and Harambee! If the New York City incident involved high explosives, why wasn't the FBI, which usually handles such issues, notified, "before the fact?" Such closed-handedness reminds us of other situations where American know-how was undone by professional arrogance. Furthermore, would TPD or HCSO have been so closed-moutlted where other agencies were concerned? Bragging rights are always sweet, but not when millions of lives are at stake. Ne.x1: time, NYPD, just to be on the safe side, call the FBI!
