‘The O’Reilly Factor’ examines critics’ reaction to Talladega College accepting invitation to participate and mentions GoFundMe Page for band’s trip at $57,165.
After a segment on “The O’Reilly Factor” on FOX News on Thursday night, incoming donations surged from $57,165 to almost $300,000. Talladega College President Billy Hawkins appeared on and said that he has received a lot of pressure from alumni, who said he had “shamed the college” and that he is “a disgrace” to African-Americans.
Hawkings told host Bill O’Reilly, “It’s about the students to have an opportunity to participate in this national stage, in this inaugural ceremony … It’s a civics ceremony. It’s not about politics.”
The historically black college in Alabama, with origins involving two former slaves that set up a school for the children of their community in 1865, needed to raise $75,000 for travel, lodging and other expenses. Friday morning, according to the GoFundMe page, more than 5,000 people have donated $293,223 at 9:09 a.m. CET, and in just nine days.
