Should Taxpayers Fund NFL Titans Stadium? + GOP TN State Legislature Underfunds TSU – The Journal of Steffanie Rivers | WATCH

*Owners of the Tennessee Titans want a new $2.1 billion football stadium in Nashville, but they want to pay for it with OPM – other people’s money. So we have to ask: should taxpayers fund NFL Titans stadium?

Those ‘other people’ include taxpayers in Nashville and throughout Tennessee, which could amount to more than $1 billion, nearly half the cost! The NFL and the owners of the Titans are millionaires. A majority of Tennessee residents are not. That’s the first issue I have with this plan. 

The second issue: For the past 25 years (at least) Tennessee legislators have underfunded Tennessee State University – my alma mater – by more than $2 billion. For a long time, it’s been evident the supermajority Republican legislature DGAF about Black people in general and TSU in particular.

It’s time to let them know TSU’s influence reaches far beyond 615 and 629. We are calling all area codes. Click the video above to find out more.
