    The Post and Courier - S.C. State work not evident - Charleston SC - postandcourier.com

    The last 14 years, South Carolina State University, between Columbia and Charleston, has been getting upwards of $100,000,000 in funding for the "James Clyburn Transportation Center" which was in honor of the fraud politician James Clyburn (he helped get that funding the last 2.5 decades) to meant to be a global center of transportation research.

    In the 14 years.....the progress in construction has been a single trailor in the middle of a grass field. SCSU can't explain where the money has gone. Embezzlement? Salaries? Theft? Slush fund? This was the same college whose corruption ended the college football "Bulldog Heritage Classic" when it was learned SCSU had been taking the money and using it improperly.

    So, SCSU had told the fed investigators that construction was to begin this past Wednsday. Did it? Well, the grass grew higher and the trailor is still there. SCSU, Clyburn, no one can say where the money from the feds went. Millions and millions. Probably embezzled or raided as a slush fund. The feds want to know where their money went. There is nothing to show for the $100,000,000.

    Will Eric Holder and the Obama Admin prosecute?

    PS: SCSU is an all-black school. Wait and see.

    How is SCSU an all black college? I thought state universities had to be open to the public at large.

    No, they don't. They call them "historically black colleges". They technically must accept white applicants, and occassionally accept some (for example, SCSU is notorious for having 1 white football player every year- A kicker/punter). But the atmosphere and attitude of the faculty, staff, alumni and students is either you are black, or better have a damn good reason to be the exception.

    But yes, State U's can be "all black". Other all black universities are Alcorn State, Prairie View A&M, Florida A&M, Alabama State, Jackson State, etc, etc.

    South Carolina State was founded to provide an equal education for blacks that was opposite the University of South Carolina and The Citadel (military school in Charleston). SCSU was placed in rural Orangeburg, 1/2 way between Columbia and Charleston. It's founding and purpose was to be for blacks.

    Also, the College of Charleston has hired a Diversity Chief whose sole goal is to recruit non-white students to the college. They have a special summer session for non-white high school students to get a head start and take 6 college credit courses to apply to their college graduation. They say CofC is 97% white and that is unacceptable since they are a state funded school. That story broke when a black female C of C student was front page in the news saying "Nobody Here Looks Like Me" and demanded change. That of course was after she visited, applied and accepted herself into the college where no one looks like here. SCSU is 99% black, but they have no diversity chief and no plans to change their ratio.
