We’ll be hosting our weekly podcast miniseries each Thursday on variety of subject matters. But today we asked the question, who should apologize? This question comes about because of an article that was written last week by Ross McCallister. In the Baton Rouge business report which he owns. Mccollister stated, what we’re waiting on is Temple to apologize, referring to Collis Temple Jr.
Why did he make that statement? Why did he write that article? Because Temple, a new board member of the LSU board of supervisor, asked a question which was published the next day in the local newspaper, the Advocate. Lsu should consider ending Ross’s relationship after Trump rally controversy, Collis Temple says. Back in January at the end of the board, a supervised meeting on January the 14th. Temple at the end of the meeting asks whether the University could explore severing its relationship with Ross’s supermarket over coowner Donald Ross’s senior attendance at a protest at the US Capital last week, Temper said, what Ross’s says reflect on LSU what Donald Ross’s post on Facebook reflects on LSU. Ross’s, who had posted a picture of him and another friend on Facebook or whether he posted another friend posted.
But anyway, a picture was circulating around the community and a lot of people was disappointed to see that Ross was supporting this rally and all the things that went on in the US capital. It caused a lot of problems, a lot of conflict and a lot of issues in the country and mostly all in our in the community that we serve. Ross is a very large supermarket grocery chain in the Southern part of Louisiana who in 2019 partnership with LSU athletics. Ross has originated out of the Southern part of Louisiana place called home of Louisiana way down south, almost down in Grand Isle area, down in the swamps to Bay you everywhere.
But Ross is a very large supporter of LSU. Carl stated that, yes, we know Ross has a First Amendment right to free speech. But by Donald Ross’s being there at the US capital with all the negative things that took place, the insurrection, the breach of the capital, the mob storming in and taking over the capital and all of the excitement that had taken place. Temple thought at least LSU need to look deeply into their relationship with Ross’s because how that looks to the others and the community that LSU serve.
On Last week Tuesday, businessman and owner of Adverse Business Report and the two two Five magazine Ross McCallister challenged Collis Temple comments by writing in his magazine Temporary. A black board member comments reflect poorly on LSU when he overstepped his authority and sent a cheer through the First Amendment with his criticism of Donald Ross’s senior and the aftermath of the riot at the US Capitol. That’s a pretty strong comment from McCollister challenging Temple, who is a friend of mine and his. Let me say, Collis and I have worked together for many years serving the community College and I have worked on many projects and programs business together. He’s a good man, one of the most hardest working men I know in the state of Louisiana. Collis worked from sun up to Sundown, building a future for himself and his family and children. He has many businesses, therefore creating a whole lot of jobs for many people of African descent in the local community College, also involved in a lot of political issues in the community.
Anybody know, Collis, he gets involved in all the political issues that goes on, and he does a great job of networking in his community and keeping a lot of people abreast and keeping a lot of people involved with the community. I would say College is one of the most successful men I know in the state of Louisiana. As far as I’m concerned, he was the first I know people say the first black.
