So first of all I have no strong opinion about this at all and no agenda here.
Historically black colleges....aren't they like 99% black? Um....
Is it because they're 100% private? What if some other minority applies there?
What if I wanted to make an all Irish school. Let's call it Boston Col...errr...Notre D...errr Celtics University.
Is that legit somehow? I sorta thought you can't do that
White people can and do attend HBCUs. They're just institutions tailored to meet the needs of blacks.
Just like non-Catholics go to historically Catholic schools all the time (Georgetown, Providence, Notre Dame, Villanova, St. Johns, Seton Hall, etc.).
Many times organizations that sound exclusive to a certain minority demographic, are actually open to everybody. White people can even join many things like the "Black Student Union" if they wanted to. Here's an example of one I found through a quick Google search,
though I definitely know of others.
Black Student Union is a safe space in which students can discuss topics of race and other areas of social justice. The club serves as a support group for students of color but is not exclusive to non-white students. Students of all backgrounds are welcome to attend meetings and events.
You can even watch BET if you want to! Being tailored to something, is not the same as being exclusive to something.
