most of my white friends agree with me, some not...

The folks I encounter here on TigerNet are very different than many of the white friends I have and I have many close white friends. Outside of my family, I have been and moved in predominately white neighborhoods, schools, and even some churches.... I would say that I have way more experience being amongst white culture and their families than most white folks have in emerging themselves in mine....I probably know them better than they could ever know me culturally....So....tigernet is a little strange to me (considering most are college educated) seriously. Most of my white friends (highly educated as well) are ready and willing to think, be challenged and talk through and see value in this hard stuff and not call everything marxist or liberal- but on here(TigerNet)?!!... it's different.
That's why the TigerNet board is fun entertainment and fandom and where you can post what you like-like it should be and not where we go for lasting friendships or political and social allies or thinkers- right? We are simply a community of fans of one thing(Clemson Tigers) who are free to express their varying views on different topics on its different boards.....Now back to football... who is next to commit!!!!????

Yes, we are, indeed and I think no subject should be off limits. Open exchange and thought is exactly what is needed, but not what I see from you. If your post above is really how you think then you need to look inward at what you are projecting. It’s not Tnet vs in person, not political factions or racial implications that people have a problem discussing, in general. For me, it’s truly how you communicate I take issue with. It’s grandstanding-esk, judgmental and manipulative, compounded by your not responding when people challenge your take.
I believe you are a Clemson grad, fan and probably a good person, but your view of people you don’t know on a message board is myopic and insulting at times.
Re: Who’s our next commit? Anyone know or can guess?

1. Possibly Tristan Leigh OT, though it may be a while. 2. Andrew Mukuba S 3. I keep hearing that Anna Hickey has us out of it for Nyland Green CB, but she hasn’t changed her CB on 247.
Other than those I have no clues unless Foreman changes his mind. He seemed to hit it off with Page this spring so who knows now. Think Clemson only takes 3-4 more. Maybe offer a kicker, kid out of Spartanburg.
