I used to think this was a good college, but if this is how they treat the people who live there, I don't want nothing to do with it. It is just turning into another rich, white trash haven that destroys the surrounding community and perhaps even spreads the values of hate and intolerance.

I mean, there were people who lived there in that relatively low-crime spot and were close enough to the stores, yet Nido's people don't care. As long as they become a leading (promoting the values of hyer-masculinity and aggression) university, they don't care who they harm, force out, or force into less-accessible, more crime-ridden areas. Just as long as they get what they want, f**k everyone else.

I think it is time to boycott the university. How about this, if they don't let the people they are displacing and this church stay, I will never support them again, and never hire anyone who is one of their graduates? A college is worth nothing if nobody will accept its grads.

What hole you been living in Purple Gurl? Low crime?

HPU is not the government, they can not force a person to give up their property for what they consider is fair market value. Did you personally ask the people effected by this how they feel about this? I about bet the HPU offered them above market value just to get them to sell and knowing how bad traffic is in that area I don't blame the church and residence wanting to move as well.

You must not been to High Point lately either. Have you seen the areas they have expanded into and what they look like now?

If you are basing your hiring off of what college someone attended then you have been "promoting the values of hyer-masculinity and aggression" that you speak of.

I have always been surprised when people explain how High Point University is destroying their city. I cannot speak for anyone else who attends High Point University, but I do not like being classified as "white trash."

Boycotting a University? Why take this out on Graduates? I have talked to many people in this city, and many of them are glad that HPU has been doing well.

I am not a resident of High Point, I did not grow up here. I will say, however, that students coming in could not possibly be a bad thing for local businesses.

Once again, I can only speak for myself here. I'm not rich, and I'm not trash. I came to High Point University to continue my education, and I am the first person in my family to even go to college for over one semester.

My goal as far as a career goes is to do something that helps people. There are some great minds here. Do not discredit the years of effort and hard work that goes into graduating from a University, especially based on false assumptions.

I know this post is all over the place, but I would not take the time to write this if I did not care.

If you don't like being called trash, then why not keep this over-confident tumor from spreading? You demonstrate your selfishness and ego in this response and exemplify what the Purple one decried. You might not be rich, but you have the same inferior values that they promote. I believe they are destroying the city by its megalomania and displacing many good people who have the right to keep living where they are. Not that you would care. As long as you get what you want at the expense of others. You didn't even live here, yet you act like you own the place and are entitled to exploit our resources at our expense.

I don't see how she is promoting those values if she refuses to hire from more aggressive universities, but hires only from ones that promote individuality, not being a stop, and feminine values (not feminism, which is masculine values repackaged for women).
