Being a White Student at a Historically Black College


I know College is really about getting
an education but here you can get like an education academically as well as
education through life also so much of it is that Brotherhood component that I
thought was it was rare and so when it came time to apply to schools did you
apply anywhere else or no more houses at the only school that I applied to walking down Brown Street and having
people acknowledging you and affirming you that’s something that if they do
here and I love that try to culture shock southern hospitality is a
beautiful thing students here they are extremely hardworking and creative we
produce more black attorneys we produce the most black doctors anybody around
you they’re black students they’re black artists this place is secret I think
this is a safe space for black students and this school was gonna challenge me
in ways that I probably would not have gotten at other institutions and if we
had white people just come in here I will feel disrespected I am as a result
of you know this school do you feel like you really belong here
I feel like I belong here if I’m putting in the word decibel we’re on the campus of Morehouse College
Morehouse is an historically black men’s college that was founded out of the
necessity to give a culturally safe space to black students who are being
excluded by predominantly white institutions in 2018 their existence
feels necessary for a lot of the same reasons in the past year alone hate
groups are openly marching on college campuses a white student admitted on
Instagram to tampering with her black roommates personal belongings
another black student had the police called on her while sleeping on a couch
in the common area of her dorm and others are still victims of racially
motivated attacks the thing is Morehouse like so many other HBCUs is navigating
one of the most difficult financial climates it’s seen since its
establishment and in order to keep their doors open they’ve turned to the
recruitment of non black students that we want to come together but for some of
you coming together means ignoring our experiences and while shows like dear
white people have dramatized the tension around white students entering black
spaces on college campuses that tension is very real at places like Morehouse so
we’re here to meet Thiago he’s a non-traditional freshman at Morehouse
and we’re gonna find out what it’s like being a non black student at an
all-black school Tiago what’s going on what’s up homie
are you doing what’s your name man Chris Chris so I got to actually put on my my
outfit before we start do you mind if I sit on your bed Oh respect to you I’m
sorry now I got you I got you always ask first I appreciate it I’m not trying to
violate so I was freshman year Ben it’s a little bit of a culture shock having
it be a new setting a new city you know when I first got here they told me you
know people are gonna always come up to you and ask you why’d you come to
Morehouse you know people looking at me like oh wow who is this person so that’s
something that was totally different but the cool thing is that it’s like
representative southern hospitality which I really appreciate so my middle
name is actually Jimmy because we share the same birthday that’s cool yeah my
dentist gave this to me that he’s been saving for decades you know growing up
in predominantly black kindergarten and elementary school and then transitioning
to a more white affluent community in my high school you know you get to see the
two different levels I think it was just psychologically just like you know put
me into this position where like I’m naturally more gravitated towards the
black community than the white community what made you want to come to this
school why Morehouse I think I just wanted something you know different how did your friends and peers and your
family how did they respond to this decision
my family was cool with it but I don’t think they really believed that you know
it was gonna end up happening and that’s no knock on them I love my family and
then you know peers they didn’t respond initially well to the idea of more house
so my kids they like ridiculed you yeah definitely first so it was a hard
process this was like my dream right if people were trashing it so I had a ton
of self-doubt and going through this like sort of like identity crisis kind
of realizing oh what am i doing you know am i doing what’s right because
everybody’s saying it’s wrong but every time I took a trip up here at morehouse
people told me oh man they’re gonna love you here I was like okay why am I being
treated better here more house by strangers then you know people back home Morehouse like many of the 101 HBCU
still operating in the United States was founded in the late 1800s to educate
freed slaves who were refused access to predominantly white institutions over
time they evolved in the culturally safe spaces where black students were
encouraged to be free thinking and could escape the oppression that lived outside
their campus gates and these environments help sculpt the great black
minds of America and Morehouse in particular has produced alumni like
Martin Luther King jr. Spike Lee and samuel l.jackson but this legacy is put
at risk with the active recruitment of non black students like we’ve seen at
West Virginia State or Bluefield state both HBCUs with black student
populations of less than 10% so I spoke with Damon Phillips from the school’s
Communications Office to find out why I mean ultimately it’s about finances
ultimately we need to find ways to fund our institutions differently than we
have in the past and so a lot of schools are now recruiting what we consider
non-traditional HBCU students but white students Asian students Hispanic
students there’s a big push has that been met with any criticism
from alumni or current students a lot of people have issue with it you know you
guys occur more how students how does that make you feel when you think about
the idea that there could be a growing number of white students on this campus
I’m on the fence about it because I feel like you know I should still accept
people who they are however at one point in time we weren’t allowed in high
school just because of the color of our skin now am i saying because of the
color their skin they’re not welcome here no but I am saying here at
Morehouse College they’re known for producing black what’s taught here is
not only how we fight for it for where we are but how we fight for who we are
outside of these gates if you grew up in an environment where you were mistreated
and abused and just you know belittled by white people you really don’t want to
see them when you come to a black space that bothers me because we
have to provide a safe haven for our children so there’s a frame of thought
that’s based in fear that if you let one person in then before you know it
everyone will come in in their schools that we’ve seen historically they’ve had
that where you’ve got Kentucky States and Tennessee States in West Virginia
States which is 95 percent white but still an HBCU so people are afraid of
that type of thing happening you’d be where kind of tipping if you
have 10 black student white students at Morehouse that’s not gonna affect the
culture 100 maybe if they made the decision to come to an HBCU you have to
expect that there is a level that they are at you know you have this fear that
they’re at a base level if they decide to come to an HBCU the white student
that conceivably would come here wouldn’t necessarily have the same
commitment because they don’t understand the struggle if they’re not coming in
with like a base level of knowledge you know this is the knowledge that you need
to have have you ever gotten a how to navigate white America Hamza I I miss my
papi I’m very comfortable with things not necessarily being integrated do you
feel like your presence here you’re infringing upon what’s supposed to be a
culturally safe space for people that don’t look like you I see how people
would like think of it from that perspective I know that like I come here
as a white person white male in this country we do have privilege now how can
we use our privilege for the betterment of society how do you feel like this experience is
changing you thus far the most fundamental change right out of
everything is turning me away from a self-absorbed experience is both
decentralizing the attitude of whiteness right the attitude that I’m smarter that
I deserve this opportunity more than you the attitude of supremacy understanding
that had I not come across Morehouse I probably would have never delved deep
into learning about you know the true history of this country all the you know
the things that the US government has done to keep people down
I wouldn’t think it’s fair for someone who characterize you as a person that is
seeking a black experience but how do you respond to people who think you’re
here because you want to be black um just just recognizing that that’s just
not my truth no I don’t want to change you know the color of my skin or act
like they stereotype of black people in society but there are elements to black
culture like the hospitality besides yeah they’re listening CIA’s monitoring
right now man I know they are losing wine that’s what the grilled chicken
yellow rice dish yellow right yeah I’m sure all of you had sort of like an
idea of what Moor house is gonna be by the time that you got here did you guys
think you were gonna have like a white friend when you got the moor house next
to me – so when I seen him on moving bed I hadn’t expected UTI though and even
after I did meet together I didn’t expect to talk to the ttio after all
right well at first I didn’t know his intentions so I didn’t I didn’t trust
the alcove too much everyone was a little bit skeptical of white person in
this black space just because an America weekend if you have a history of white
people coming into black spaces doing that’s okay then right but see how
that’s a great dude like he’s not doing this to be in some experiment he’s doing
this for the same reason that I’m here I was abandoned and when he explains to me
why I was like wow like that’s my loss you know he kind of has the same vision
that you know a more automation so their only reason that like I’m being able to
be cool everybody is because of these sort of interactions that godlike Kaleo
guys like Brandon Johnson Jackson Kip men and Morehouse and Morehouse men
throughout my life that have like helped me develop as a person so really I’m
just another person here ultimately I have to speak in Thiago for the first
time I knew the wrong thing to do was make her feel like she’s not loved she’s
a mute injured so in order for me to change his mind said I needed to be cool what is the thing that you love the most
about Morehouse is what do you value the most about this place what I pretty much
love the most is the mission or Morehouse that sort of unique mission of
having men become leaders that just changed the world practically and that’s
something that I wanted to be a part of have you taken any leadership positions
since you’ve arrived to you so I am the president of this dorm which is deemed
as a big deal right because of you know the obvious wait what’s the obvious
obviously you know a white student and by the most famous dorm
being the president of that mmmthat’s uh feel like very ironical right that’s the
right word so you’re being the president of graves rubbed some people the wrong
way oh definitely how did you become president I ran an election I remember
like I wanted to run for Vice President or treasurer because I didn’t think you
know president was possible I didn’t have that courage but people in this
hall encouraged me and then I ran what somebody taught me was that it’s never
about somebody voting for you it’s always about the message have you had to
confront your minority status here at this institution yeah um you know a
student earlier this semester you know stopped me and asked me why am I here
and we’re like a condescending undertone right anywhere you know people are not
gonna like you so I was a little bit you know anxious and whatnot not scared but
anxious you know I hope people will accept me people might say something or
look at me a certain way it’s fine it’s not personal especially because
like most of those people you know they don’t know me but it’s okay the history
of this country right and all the oppression has led people to feel this
way and I would say 99% of my experience
this year have been extremely amazing about 1% I don’t take it personally well
at the end of day everybody has their own individual judgment I judge you know
you judge we all judge but when people get to know me I think people will have
their own perspectives ok we’re gonna go talk to Professor Robin Marcus an HBCU
alumni and former professor to get her perspective on why historically black
colleges and universities are so important when you’re walking across a
campus and you’re reminded of who also walked on those on that lawn right who
said in those rooms the legacy is palpable to be able to step into that
space know that it was carved out for you when the rest of your life says
something very different about your value your intelligence your potential
at least for four years you’re not gonna have to think about racism and so when a
white student says you know I wanted to try something different or you know I
felt this calling to the mission of the school what is what are you here um well
that’s nice but you can’t you don’t understand what it meant for this grass
to be this this sod to be here you you don’t know that what does that mean
though that means that the shared the body the full weight of history what
that institution has stood for what it has meant for us us black people is it
reverse racism to have schools that are only for black students okay so I don’t
even understand that word that term for real and I get that is an argument it’s
a specious one it’s a dumb one racism has to do with structures with systems
with legislation all of that not it’s not fair because you’re black and you
can do it and I’m white and I should be able to do it that ain’t if that’s what
you call reverse racism I’m trying to conversation with you do you guys feel
like it is problematic that we’ve come here to showcase the experience of a
non-black student at an all-black school well I mean I genuinely want to know yes
why why do you say controversial because of course it’s already frowned upon that
how come they can get into where we want to be but we can’t get into where they
can this is a space where people that have been consistently marginalized for
the last 400 years have come to change that narrative yet when we get here when
the national media comes to have a conversation with us who do they want to
speak with the only perspective that’s relevant is the perspective of a young
person it doesn’t look like us I do like the fact that you’re here in order to in
order to allow us to drive our narrative but at the same time there is nothing
that a young non-traditional student can bring to the culture of Morehouse
Spellman o’clock it’s us culturing here so you asked about this question of
bringing I’m gonna just be blamed bringing a lot more white feeding into a
predominantly black space where Morehouse right now I’m slightly
uncomfortable that only because so many students came tomorrow specifically to
feel human and to not be the humanized be the most human that they could
possibly be in a society like this do you guys take issue with the fact that
there are a certain number of recruitment dollars that are reserved to
attract a non black student to Morehouse or Spelman or Clark is that a fact this place is sacred our ideas who we
are as people we feel safe here and if we had white people just coming in here
and taking over a 40% of the population I will feel disrespected I would love if
a white person with reddington’s came here and learned about us as black
people you have a lot to offer and I think it’s just a shame that we want to
keep that to ourselves come see what black people can do like I
don’t want to do that you can learn my history like in an African American
diaspora class I’m in pain because you all don’t see the bigger picture you see
what’s in front we just see the bigger picture here’s the bigger picture
Morehouse and Spelman recruit the best and the brightest girls and put them
next to the best and the brightest boys there’s always been white students here
always when I was a student here we called him white Mike that was his dad
any student that comes of this school regardless of their intent they’re gonna
be influenced by you all they have no choice
the reason why we don’t have everything is about money it’s about money it’s not
about anything else but money but look what we do what we have who do we have I
think that students have a right to be on concerns these schools have for a
long time been the only place where you can get an education but more
importantly a place you can get an experience because a lot of our students
are coming from environments where they’ve never seen a black instructor
that fear of oh my god they’re gonna take this from me too is rooted in a
really personal place for a lot of students and I understand that it is a
good thing to expand the applicant pool that you’re looking for people that
criticize that have to understand that the school is trying to figure out a way
to bring in more dollars couldn’t the introduction of the non traditional or
non black students of the HBCU campus uh sure in the gentrification of the HB
to you either we change and we adapt to what’s around us or we’re gonna struggle
a lot and some schools are gonna close because they didn’t want to embrace
what’s coming what is your response to someone that says you’re only here
because your wife essentially that you are an affirmative action admittance in
my case you know it’s not true like I genuinely care about this school and
this mission so I’ll just pass these around is that part of the reason why he
felt it so important to become a student ambassador that’s definitely the main
reason behind it so this is probably not you what you were expecting right a
white student and HBCU giving you the tour right when I was a freshman in high
school we had a Morehouse man and she really embodied that spirit of a leader
and regardless of the racial dynamics of this campus I saw that potential in
myself but I like to know a little bit more
about you so can anybody tell me where they’re from today
Indiana cool Philadelphia how about you okay okay are you guys happy about the
Superbowl and whatnot oh yeah I’m in the 76ers they just won last night right I’m
a Celtics fan just how to put that out there a lot of those first individuals
to gentrify a cultural space of some kind recognize the value or an
opportunity that exists and I’m curious what the difference between you and that
person is I guess the way I try to look at it is how can I contribute to the
campus how can I get involved how can I be engaged how can I make you no one
else a better place in the truest sense so we’re about to enter King’s chapel
this is a kind of a sacred space at Morehouse I think this is a safe space
for black students and other students and I think it should remain that way I
don’t want this to spark a lot of like white students come here I don’t
like that’s not what I want yes better pay more house I don’t know those
numbers I do know that there might be three white students in the entire
school me somebody that’s in the ROTC program and then a Japanese exchange
coming here meeting Thiago this is the first time I’ve ever seen a white male
as a minority why you would want to immerse yourself in a completely black
space I think there was a lot of people off in the beginning but meeting Thiago
and hearing his very honest desire to initiate change and acknowledge the
privilege that he was born with I think it’s a good thing you look this way
right this is century campus every year in May we graduate I think the most
african-american men in the entire world all in one place this used to be a civil
war site think about that from like a spiritual standpoint the most graduating
african-american men are on top of there like the remains of fallen Confederate
soldiers yeah you are going to diversify its students like Thiago that you want
to recruit here not people that want to come here and take something away and
feel no calling to give something back but it’s important to keep in mind that
there are only so many beds and so many desks and when you give one away to even
the most well-intentioned non-traditional student you could be
taking that opportunity from a young black student that may have needed it
more so do you have any feeling of regret or guilt that you took a position
away at this school from a young black man that needed it I will I would be in
a and I will be if I don’t

    I am confused.
    I thought that after 9/11,we were all in this together. I thought we were beginning to understand each other.
    I thought it was black and white against the world. I hoped for change with Obama. Big let down.
    I REALLY thought things were getting better…. damn. We all bleed red!

  3. rheotaxisvids

    We should just ship this University to Africa where it would make more sense. Too bad there are still a 100 more of these racist Universities in "diversified" America.

  4. Stor the Mighty

    Serious question. For a school founded for freed slaves and black people segregated by a mostly white community, wouldn't having white people want to go there be the ultimate win?

  5. Songmi Lee

    the whole concept to teaching racism and how to be racist against another because of skin color. Robin Marcus the definition of what is wrong in this world. She spread this view and hatred as a 'professor' in the university as a 'respected teacher'.

  6. Luly

    Why would a white student want to go to an all black school anyways, whats the point? would'nt he feel weird? or rather uncomfortable? why couldn't the student just go to a diversified school where there are people from all walks of life there? is he obsessed with black culture and its people?

  7. Scott Tracy

    Great documentary! I think the funniest part was at the 10:36 mark when his phone lit up. He looked legitimately concerned the government was listening. Then the comment-"We're losing one" hahahaha! I lost my drink out my nose at that! Love it!

  8. Sebastian Curd

    Systematic victimisation rather than looking ahead and not generalising. It's sad to hear all this narrow minded "us" and "them" nonsense.

  9. edmond fazliu

    How is not wanting white people at a collage not racism !?? Fucking Hippocrates SMH there’s is no collage in America that doesn’t allow black students! In fact because of infirmative action there are black students getting into collages not because of there grades but for the color of there skin ..This whole video is just fucked up in so many ways

  10. anakin singh

    Its all about diversity right but they dont have these places for me but their all black and white I dont like their proud arrogant racists ok just like those white schools also man its about diversity Augnostick attitude not reform !

  11. Tino Lover

    White people know more about Black Americans than Black Americans know about themselves.. down to the african tribes from which black people came.. They make sure they with hold that history from black in America. That's why blacks in America feel so disconnected from their African roots.. White American know exactly how deep that psychological warfare they intentionally did to the African American communities.. White people act dumb but they are not dumb at all..

  12. Order In progress

    You have to understand, these students must of had a bad experience with white people, or their relatives like grandparents who could of been formally a slave. These kids think their safe spaces are at risk by allowing whites. I agree it's a bit racist but it doesn't come from hatred or a feeling of superiority, it comes from distrust, and afraid of change.

  13. Bella Marx

    16:31 Just answer the question mam !!       WHAT DID YOU NOT UNDERSTAND ? DO YOU NEED HIM TO DRAW YOU AND  EXPLAIN IT WITH PICTURES LIKE RETARDED CHILD ? just what did you not understand ? Answer the question mam ,don't plead the I'm just a dumb negro,  just look at how it all changed her expression look at her demeanor ,"I'm lost where am I ,is this a collage , wtf i don't understand your question" really bitch just answer the fckn question don't get all "oh I was a slave my momma and we suffered so much in the fields " the native Americans fought for this land it was taken from them and you asked for Equality and got then you said this is not equality we want our own laws that favor us over you .

  14. Kristina Brazil

    Blacks have a lot of nerve claiming so called black institutions they didn't build. You hate white men studying with you, yet you'll sleep THEIR women.

  15. Your moms HITACHI

    He only applied to the black college his SAT scores were so low he could only get into a black only college if you were going to shoot so low why did you even go to college

  16. Z Tinker

    where's the vice episode of the single black student at an all-white college? would it get 6 million views? It's a trip to see the platform afforded to this guy. Great episode though

  17. twistednerve74

    Pretty sure that if there was a White only school it would be criticized to high hell-and rightfully so. I understand that SOME black people in America may be uncomfortable integrating with other races, but with the real world and what it is becoming, you would be foolish to want segregation.It will set you back and you will never get ahead. Now, whether you like it or not Blacks must choose to be an addition to society, not exclude themselves.

  18. twistednerve74

    The truth really leaks out though, because some people when given a chance will show just how racist in thought they are and if given power themselves would do wrong with it. Racism starts with a mindset and can come out in actions. Even when someone is respectful enough and wants to understand more about aspects of "black culture" they are met with rejection and contempt. This just furthers the problem.

  19. William Wonka

    Wow President of the dorm, if the brothers elected him he must be cool and care about everyone very much. Congrats Morehouse love over hate, a lot of respect to your institution.

  20. Redneck Rage

    whats next? blonde attends all brunette school lmfao .. we are all people wtf is this shit with categorizing humans based on our looks?

  21. Yon Mack

    you do belong there as long as you're putting in the work you belong there and everybody deserves an education if they want it but what people don't like to admit is there's a lot of racism and it's not only white people against black people it's sometimes black people against white people too and people don't want to a knowledge that but racism goes all different kinds of ways but you stick in there and get your education if that's the college you want to attend and then that's the one you should and furthermore black people don't like it when it's all white thing so why should that be good for them it should never be good segregation should never be a good thing integration is the only way we're ever going to get somewhere

  22. Yon Mack

    I have to leave another comment because I just seen that part where the woman is being I got the interview and says there's no such thing as Reverse Racism there is racism. And racism goes all different ways and what form does racism go under a lot of the time discrimination and that's exactly what's happening if somebody is being excluded from something just because of the color of their skin or their sexual identity and I personally believe that woman that was being interviewed as a very racist herself because anybody that tries to segregate something just for them is wrong in my opinion and then the fact of people that's been there before them and have paved the way for them in this college like she was saying that's a bunch of bull if you feel good about what you're doing and you want to go to college and you want to do something good with your life then do it it doesn't matter who sat in that seat before you and that's just another excuse for her to try to pass off her passive aggressive racism me myself I know racism exists in all different kinds of ways because I'm Romanian but I look why white and I am transgendered and built very very well and very pretty and I grew up in the projects where we were the only people of our skin color to last more than 3 months I stopped counting at at Seventeen years the face all kinds of racism racism goes every kind of Direction you can imagine and it is ignorant

  23. Rosie Crivaro

    All these white dudes in the comment like "what if a white person did this to a black person" bitch we already did. that's the entire controversy. stop being so ignorant

  24. Hamish Gray

    HOW is this not racist, just IMAGINE if the tables where flipped, if there was an all white college saying they didn't want any black people they would be branded as racist and arrested straight up. This bull shit creates more divide in the US and make races demonise each other. we are all equal, do and should have equal opportunities in life.

  25. Lil Dropshot

    Lol"yes,I've been historically oppressed and people hate black people and wont let us succeed in this world!!!!! shit talks whites and hates them coming into the college

  26. Lil Dropshot

    I swear to god this oppression shit is never gunna end lol.if you guys wanna see oppression bigger than slaver look at the Indians,they ain't burning buildings look at the Japanese,we dropped 2 fucking nukes on them and they shrugged it off and now are very successful. You cant act like the most oppressed people in the world your not by far

  27. MsC Starz

    We need people like the lady professor so we dont get tricked by the white man because that is how they get down. We are forgiving and welcoming people and white people are predators.

  28. ironkong26

    Why all these people talking bout what MLK fought for?? White people shot MLK while he was talking that integration talk… FOH. Hbcus were created BECAUSE white people denied blacks higher education in their institutions

  29. joshua Lasseff

    OMG could you imagine how well this would go down if this was switched around? There would be marching in the streets, protesting . OMG the word RACIST would have been spray painted on the walls of every building , clashes of violence . Man i cant even finish watching, im out.

  30. The Life Of Memory

    Oh! He’s been around black folks since he was a baby! 🤣🤣🤣 makes sense! 🤷🏾‍♀️ bless his Pea-picking-heart! He gets a college experience and a cultural experience! 2 for the price of one🧐

  31. The Life Of Memory

    Also, he gets to understand what some of us (black ppl) go through on a minor scope 🤷🏾‍♀️ when we feel unwanted in public spaces 🤣🤣🤣

  32. Natasha Doshi

    I was REALLY skeptical and quick to judge this guy when I saw this video last year. However, I got the chance to meet him in person in a casual setting and he's actually genuine and passionate about his research, his studies, and his school. I have to say I shouldn't have judged him so hard before I got to meet him and see his character.

  33. Stefan Snellgrove

    This is so racist. This is no different than when all white schools denied entry to black students back in the day. Back then I could understand an all black school because it was either that or don’t get educated but now with segregation there is no need for it and denying entry only because someone is white is just as bad as the white schools that use to deny entry just because they were black or any other race. Racism no matter which race doing it is wrong as sad that white and black people still think and act like this when it’s almost the 3rd decade in the 21 century.

  34. Ucallit 71

    This Vice channel also deletes or controls speech content. Real way to open the narrative Vice.. an opinion that's expressed that dosent match your agenda or agree to your narrative and you delete it. This channel is shit.

  35. Product or Brand

    I agree with what the lady said. White folk are always trying to slide in our spaces but neve want us in theirs and that's a fact !

  36. Timothy Norat

    "Blacks can't be racist". Pff. Whatever! With the camera rolling… at least three black people said very clearly racist comments.

    Personally I think (almost) everyone is racist regardless of color. Racism is a vice. Everyone is somewhere located on the spectrum of racist thinking. When we begin to recognize our own flaws and stop pointing the finger we begin to grow! That's the key! Growth! Progress!

  37. I am here

    Bruh that's straight up racism….if you want to look at real oppression look at Dalits of India..Some blacks always whining about whities when they have every opportunity to rise up.

  38. consuelo reedy

    Follow him and his future and let's see how many black people he will have in his life. The likelihood of him having a black wife and black children. The bubble is good, but reality is very REAL!

    That white dude seems chill asf f** anyone that tries to bring him down because the race he was born into , it doesn't justify the person off that simple reason & and f** the racist professors if anything aswell!

    Evidently nobody in these comments knows how those students actually feel, all those people that died back then also faught so they can have a place of there own to feel connected to other blacks, but yet whites can have predominantly white schools but blacks can't have nothing of there own for once? Slaves had no choice but to sneak around just to learn how to read but letting the same people in who tried to take that away and I know for a fact most of y'all are white and trying to dragging MLK into the argument cuz y'all have nun else to say

    Everywhere you go, blacks automatically segregate themselves by finding others that look ,talk, and act just like they are…there is nothing wrong with that until you start complaing that it's racism that made you sit at a table with 100 other blacks when you voluntarily sat there…I knew a lot of white kids that would try to integrate into groups like that and they were constantly picked on because blacks felt like those white kids were not suppose to be there or were out of place…I knew groups of whites that were far more accepting of blacks into their groups because the vast majority don't look at your skin, we look at what you can bring to the table and the contents of your character

    You guys will never understand. This university was made for black students as a safe space and also to be educated when white universities wouldn't let them in.

    “They don’t understand the struggle “ for one what struggle it’s an all black school and what about the predominantly white schools getting black people or people of culture in tjem

    There is racism in all cultures. I went to a all black school, I’m white and my life there was made hellish. I was extremely bullied by the black girls. 🤷🏻‍♀️

    There are blacks today who have family members who were lynched and survived the jim crow era…. most jobs tell bla ks that the hair that grow out their head is unpofessional. There are laws right now that exist to imprison blacks. Yall have the gull to say blacks dont need a safe haven? Somethings is seriously wrong with yall and yall privilege…. yall chose to play dumb. By the way beforw king died he said he made a mistake. Shortly he was assasinated…. yall love him so much and killed him
