We can’t fix PWIs by attending HBCUs.

As an HBCU graduate of Hampton University I do agree with your comment that Mr. Butler was right in standing up for all students of color at the University of Missouri. What my Alma Mater helped me with was being able to navigate real life and not back down as a person of color. I’m my field, progressive politics amongst non partisan and labor organization I found myself sitting in meetings with a few barriers to entry…a woman, a black woman, young amongst a room full of my old white colleagues. I take notice and do my work as usual. Standing ground when need be and not being afraid to speak out amongst the crowd. I’m not blinded to the color issue in the workplace, I was more taken a back by the complaining from people of color behind the scenes versus standing up. Look forward to reading more 😁
