Wow. Now I wonder how this lawsuit will affect funding to other HBCUs in other states. This is definitely a landmark case that will need to be watched closely. Thank you for sharing this Sunnubian.

I was kinda thinking along the same lines. I was wondering if only one HBCU in America could be saved, which HBCU should African America go all out to save; which one should it be. I think I came up with Howard, with Tuskegee a close second. So, guys, you have my pick and RadioRaheem's pick, now post your pick for which HBCU in America that should be saved if African America could save only (1) one .

This has been a long time coming. 10 years to be exact. Morris Brown lost their accreditation, there by losing their access to federal financial aid dollars. And from what I understand financial mismanagement by the A.M.E. church Morris Brown school board members (the owners of the school).

Sunnubian I'm glad that you mentioned the money issue. White pollsters keep telling us that we have all these billions of dollars, BUT fact is we don't have access to it because most of it is tied up in banks, bills and credit. All of which belong to the white man. At the end of the day we don't actually have the cash or capital on hand to save Morris Brown or any other HBCU if we needed to.

But, if Morris Brown needs $30Million to be saved and there are well over 40Million African Americans, that means each of of giving at least $1.00 would be enough to save the College. I all of us would donate a dollar a year to educational programs and HBCUs, that would be at least $40Million going toward community education programs and the HBCUs annually, and if we would donate a dollar per month . . . (Personally, I know that it's a long shot, but, hey )

Reference: I understand that HBCUs are 'relevant' to us from a cultural/historical basis. But, is there more to the issue of "relevance" than that? IMO no. If they are relevant to any of us, then they serve a purpose.

Re: Healthcare Reform and HBCU's

Short comment: with all the pushes in various states within the last couple years to save HWCUs by merging them with HBCUs, I'm wondering if the money will actually go to the HBCUs or will greedy white politicians play the 'minority game' to benefit other whites. (The minority game is putting up a minority individual or group to get funding from special minority set asides) It seems as if some of the Southern States have figured out a way to cheat us again.

He didn't issue a news release with anything about it being 'for us'. Seems like he talks about everybody but us. This needs to remember where he comes from. Is he really about doing anything for 'us'. Here he is doin' stuff' for health care. What does that do for 'us'????????? Hummpf!!!!!!!! The 'Yes, but...' folks will find a way. PEACE Jim Chester

HBCUs are dead, the government doesn't fund them, they aren't public college so they aren't cheap, and they have a reputation of providing an inferior education. A lot of them are only four year institutions that only provide humanities degrees... The only way HBCUs could make a comeback is if Black people weren't allowed into PWIs. The problem is, Black people been so bent on integration, that niggas rather fight tooth and nail to go to a cracker school than enjoy being in their own.

It doesn't matter whether you go to a White institution or a Black institution, when the education is obtained, it's never as good as white folks' education, in their eyes, and when the diploma's in your hands, you're going to end up working for WHITE people getting the salary they think's appropriate for you and more than likely will be less than the white persons employed there doing the same chores you are. We'll never walk side-by-side with these folks. We're neither liked nor respected.
