Alcorn State

I removed it because stating Alcorn State is not well known outside Mississippi is not a fact of any sort and it simply isn't relevant to the wiki page. The article you used to support that statement is over 20 years old and was not a credible source.

Not to enter into this conversation, but Alcorn State was most famous for being the alma mater of Jerry Rice, who probably held every receiving record in the NFL at the time he retired: Activist (talk) 23:51, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

Indeed, it cannot, for Y's call-by-call reference requires abstract machine pointers, and Y's procedure frames are essentially structures. The only significant additions likely to be required by other Algol-ike languages should be a few extended-precision types and operators for them."

For your excellent work on multiple ethnicity-related articles! It's wonderful! Articles like that (e.g. Japanese community of São Paulo, Maghrebian community of Paris) are very interesting! And, maybe they can be good ways to show people diversity. I hope they can make people become less intolerant. :) Haha maybe I'm a dreamer... Anyway, it's delightful to see your work on it.
