It’s funny how HBCU’s always get the last laugh. Just today, a viral topic on Twitter was shared where we had our yearly winter HBCU’s vs. PWI’s debate. The anti-HBCU trolls were citing that the education from an HBCU doesn’t hold the weight that it does from a PWI. According to them, our institutions are underfunded and aren’t fit to produce productive graduates in society. Well, tell that to 1968 Howard University Alumnus Emmet Sullivan, who’s set to put Trump’s former National Security Adviser in jail!
I know you had to hear about the updates in this case. Impeachment continues to get closer and closer to Trump and Flynn is about to snitching about Russia’s interference in the Election. There’s no loyalty amongst criminals! The story that made the headlines is that the judge over the case told Flynn to his face that he was disgusted with Flynn and didn’t understand why he wasn’t charged with Treason. Well, Judge Sullivan was the individual that spoke for most of the nation!
“I’m not hiding my disgust, my disdain for this criminal offense. Arguably, you sold your country out.”
Judge Sullivan graduated from Howard University with a bachelor’s degree in 1968 and a law degree in 1971. He maintained a private law practice for over 10 years then becoming a clerk for Judge James Washington of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. Judge Sullivan continued to rise in the political arena under both Republican and Democratic regimes. In 1984, former President Ronald Reagan nominated him to the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. In 1992, President George H.W. Bush nominated him to the District of Columbia Court of Appeals. Then, in 1994, President Bill Clinton nominated Sullivan to the District of Columbia Court of Appeals. It seems like his Howard Law degree took him pretty far!
Let’s let this be a reminder for the people that try to delegitimize the education and social experiences that HBCU’s give us as students. If any of these people dislike Trump and believe he should be impeached, maybe they should thank Howard University for educating this Judge to uphold his duty to the country and put treasonous citizens behind bars. Just maybe.
