Diddy to Howard U -- No Justice, No Peace!

9/4/2009 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

He might not be in the trenches, but Diddy has joined the student protests at Howard University through his Twitter page.

Diddy

Diddy -- who went to school at H.U. back in the day -- has been firing off several messages to the waves of students currently protesting over housing and financial aid packages.

For the last two hours, Diddy has been sending messages like, "NO JUSTICE! NO PEACE!!! Let me know if yall need me to come down there yall! I got yall BACK! Let's go!!!"

And just to be clear he's not encouraging violence, Diddy then wrote, "Do what we did and take IT OVER!!!! Let's go! And do it in a peaceful way but DO IT!! ... If your at HU go to the A building now and make sure they feel you!!! And send me updates!!! Let's go!"

School spirit never dies.

All these people on here have racist comments and they need to stop. Howard University is a historically black college and P.diddy is not a good howard product because first of all he did not graduate from howard university and only spent a semester here. And every one makes a typo so what is the big deal.....get a life.

Wow...I am amazed and embarrassed by the stupidity of people today. Why waste your time with such hatred? I have a student at Howard who is striving to better herself with a college education and feel the frustration first hand as a parent. These kids should be focusing on their education not fighting to get someone to do their job.

Clearly we weren't concerned about "free services", we actually have a number of students who do not have housing, who are validated and yet are going to be purged within the next two weeks because of errors on Howard's part so get that correct. We would never organize and protest something as petty and as meaningless as "freebies".

Wow, it's amazing the ignorance that is out there. First, Howard University is a Historically Black University, founded in 1867 back when black people were not allowed into most universities. Secondly, the students are not protesting for more anything they just want what they were promised in the beginning. They want the Financial Aid, including scholarships, that were awarded and have yet to be applied to their student accounts. If the money is not in their by a certain date they could be removed from their classes.
Please do your research before you make comments about something you know nothing about.
FYI Sean Combs was a student at Howard but didn't graduate because he chose to pursue a career in music. Maybe he'll hire one of you to do his spelling and grammar checks.

Outraged Howard Student    

All of you are completely ignorant!! If you only knew half of the struggle some of these students go through, you wouldn't be so quick to judge. Many of these young people travel across the country to get an education only to find that their finances will not be given to them on time. As a result of this, they are being purged from their classes. Others pay money to be put on an RSVP list for housing, but end up without a place to live. Please, save your ignorant and racist comments to yourselves because you have NO idea what is actually going on at Howard University. We do NOT want hand-outs! All we want is a chance to get an education without having to worry about where OUR money is going. Also, Sean "Diddy" Combs does not represent the instruction and Howard University. Clearly, you need to check your facts and not let your ignorance show.

@Adams I didn't know that Whites or Asians were ever banned from attending mainstream universities. Howard is actually a very good institution. However, the students are unhappy about some of the services. Why are so concerned? You haven't even educated yourself on the history of HBCUs.
