Radio jock and philantrophist, Tom Joyner, took to his national syndicated show to offer an apology to the band fraternity, Kappa Kappa Psi, for previous comments that he had made in which a lot of members took offense. He even offered to donate $1000 to the family of slain FAMU drum major, Robert Champion.

Tom also started to talk about the boycott and letter writing campaign that was started by members of KKPsi and how damaging it could be to HBCU's if his sponsors started to pull away from him. For those who do not know, Tom Joyner is one of the biggest advocates and philantrophist to Historical Black Colleges and Universities and through his Tom Joyner Foundation has given out countless scholarships to students of HBCUs.

Was a boycott and letter writing campaign too strong a tactic or did the member os KKPsi do what they had to do in order to get the respect that they deserve?What say thee...
