Twitter was ablaze for the last 24 hours after a student by the name of Jawanza Ingram said his housing privileges had been revoked. Who needs to TV when you have twitter 24/7 lol. Knowing me I already knew this wasn’t the whole story. Although the incident is not funny I found it entertaining because a majority of everyone had already started picking sides. Chhh I just didn’t believe that Howard University would be so petty for something so small but there is always 3 sides to a story, your side their side and the TrueTea. Somebody sent a screenshot that alleges shows Jawanza selling drugs on Instagram.

Now let’s not act like we don’t or didn’t know a weed  street pharmacist in college, but you have to be discreet when taking on these type of activities. In this day in age, everybody has a voice including myself. Sometimes we can do more harm than good with our voice. If it is true that Mr. Jawanza was selling drugs and that’s what supposedly put him in this situation then he should just move on swiftly professionally as best he can. This situation left Howard University in a bad place cause they can’t discuss students information to the public. I will sit back and continue to watch this story unfold. Y’all tell me what y’all think…

    This is so sad. I know college and working at the same time is rough but our black men need to do better. I’m not going to lie this looks like an ad you would see at a medical marijuana dispensary,$10 pre-rolls but my thing is this, who told and who did he mess over? If it was good stuff I doubt anyone would have told after finding the hookup. Now holla if you hear me like master p. Either he selling bad stuff and messed over somebody or he is just dumb and selling to anybody. Either way, so unfortunate that his collegiate career is thrown out the window for selling weed. Now he can’t get any financial assistance for college over pettiness.

    I knew something was fishy when they had pictures of him holding his stuff in his hand and had him sitting on the damn bench. BEWARE OF SCAMMERS!

    That’s terrible for him, but if it’s true he was selling drugs, hopefully he learned something from this.

    Nice website, btw!

    I went to Howard. He’s lucky they didn’t put him on probation, make him do community service or kick him out of school for weed, like others I knew. Great article Justin, I’m here for the TrueTea on your awesome site!!!

12 Year-Old Keedron Bryant Signed to Warner Records

Published

on

“OOHHH THANK YA” is all Keedron Bryant had to say on social media when news finally came out that he had signed a record deal with Warner Records.

Amidst all the difficult news we’ve been facing these past few weeks, we wanted to give you something to smile about. You might remember Keedron Bryant, the 12-year-old boy who went viral after posting a video of himself singing “I Just Wanna Live,” a song written by his mother that tells of being Black in America and just wanting to live.

Keedron’s performance was noticed by everyone from former president Barack Obama, who referred to him and posted the performance in a statement on the murder of George Floyd, to comedian Ellen Degeneres, who closed her show with his full video. 

Just when we thought this story couldn’t give us any more feels, it was announced that Keedron was officially signed to Warner Records and his viral hit would be released on all platforms Friday, June 19, otherwise known as Juneteenth, a day marking the end of slavery in America. 

Congratulations are definitely in order for Keedron Bryant.

Netflix CEO Donates $120 Million to HBCU’s

Netflix CEO, Reed Hastings, along with his wife, Patty Quillin, are donating $120 million dollars in total to Morehouse College, Spelman College, and the United Negro College Fund. The $120 million will go towards scholarships for the students. Each college will get $40 million.

According to the United Negro College Fund, this is the largest single donation by individuals.

In a statement Hastings and Quillin said, “We’ve supported these three extraordinary institutions for the last few years because we believe that investing in the education of black youth is one of the best ways to invest in America’s future.”

This isn’t Hastings’ and Quillin’s first time donating to HBCU’s and minority education. In 1997, the two began supporting the KIPP charter school network which helps black and latino students. In 2016, Hastings created a $100 million dollar education fund for black and latino scholarships.

“HBCUs have a tremendous record, yet are disadvantaged when it comes to giving. Generally, white capital flows to predominantly white institutions, perpetuating capital isolation. We hope this additional $120 million donation will help more black students follow their dreams and also encourage more people to support these institutions — helping to reverse generations of inequity in our country,” says Hastings and Quillin.
