Tallahassee, FL (BlackNews.com) — Florida A&M University (FAMU) has been awarded an education and research grant totaling $15 million from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to meet the agency’s workforce needs in areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) that support NOAA’s mission. This is the largest single grant awarded in the history of the University.

Soledad O’Brien’s public spanking of Tech Crunch founder Michael Arrington is, in my opinion, the stuff that legends are made of. During a recent interview, Arrington, who prides himself on covering the tech industry in detail, actually told Soledad that he doesn’t know of any black entrepreneurs in the tech industry. He then had the audacity to go on and say that he firmly believes that Silicon Valley is a meritocracy and that your level of success is determined by the size of your brain.
So, in Michael Arrington’s small and polluted reality, black people must not succeed because we have tiny brains and an even tinier level of ambition. So, I’m sure Arrington would have a great pow-wow with Herman Cain, who also believes that if you’re not receiving riches and glory for your work, you only need to blame yourself. You already know my thoughts on the Arrington issue, as well as those of our political contributor Yvette Carnell, so let’s just talk about Soledad.
