Black Self-segregation in Politics and Academia -- Part 2 (higher ed)

Last update: Friday 11/27/15
II. Black higher education needs Black institutions
Nowadays over ninety percent of Black college students are enrolled in non-HBCUs, or Predominantly White Institutions (PWIs) as some people call them. The Black Lives Matter movement has recently engaged in numerous protests on non-HBCU campuses against the persistence of racism at these institutions, mostly in the form of micro aggressions. In my opinion most of these protests have missed the mark.

Legal segregation denied Black Americans equal access to a wide array of the nation's resources thereby making it impossible for Black Americans to achieve equality on most significant measures of success with White Americans.
