Hampton University President Is Not A Fan Of BET's 'The Quad'

posted by Mutha Knows -

The president of Hampton University wrote a letter to the chair and CEO of Black Entertainment Television criticizing  the fictional show, “The Quad,” about life on the campus of an Historically Black College. “The Quad will lead many to believe that HBCUs exist because of their marching bands; that our presidents are unethical; that our boards are dysfunctional and have misplaced priorities; that our faculty, students and administrators are driven by sex, alcohol, marijuana, low self-esteem, parties and a preoccupation with music; that it is acceptable to disrespect women; that university policy can be set by a band director; and that there are not standards of conduct or penalties for bad behavior,” Harvey wrote. “This depiction seems more analogous to a disgruntled adolescent and unrealistic point of view that some may have. It also feeds a false narrative about the relevance of HBCUs,” he stated.
