We had a blackout here when I first moved out here, earthquake knocked down the power grid. It was only 12 hours but it was the worst thing ever. No cellphones, no lights, no computer, couldn't cook on the stove (because it was electric), neighbors had to pull out their grills and grill in the yard just to cook food before it went bad because the fridges weren't working. Supermarkets and gas stations were a mad house. After 6 hours I had enough...LOL

Agreed, sir.
Furthermore, why did you have a misanthropic label on my name? I'm not attacking you or anything, just curious to know, that's all...

This is why I am so glad I spent a portion of my youth in the rural south. As little boys we were taught how to live off of the land, how to build shelter, what could and could not be eaten, how to set traps and hunt wild animals, how to start fires and cook (the pot) covered in dirt and which plants were medicinal and which were poison.

I remembered the deafening sound of the still of that night where you could only hear wild animals in the distance and the darkness was so dense that you literally could not see your hands in front of you. Your little sister awaking you because she was too afraid to go to the bathroom, which was an outhouse separate from the main house, so you went with her to protect her from falling into the sank hole that was the toilet and to fight off those big azz hogs who would eat anything, including humans. I know that this sounds like it was circa 1930, but it was actually around 1970. We still didn't have street lights in those parts. Sounds crazy, but it was a great way to grow up.

Its nice to make a periodic 3 a.m. taco run here in L.A, but I wouldn't trade my experiences for anything. They served me well when I had the dubious honor of being in both the L.A and San Francisco earthquakes as well as being in the Rodney King riots when they had the military tanks rolling down the streets. I knew how to survive.

Dude, I wasn't attacking you; you and I have always been cool. In fact, I recognize your brilliance underneath your interesting online veneer, so it's actually the contrary; but I do believe, and I could be wrong you once using a nom de plume with the word Misanthrope in it. No insult was intended young fellow, I'm a fan of yours.

Oh, ok...
I am also a fan of yours, because you're very intelligent.
I greatly admire intelligent people, always have.
Intelligent people inspire me to want to be intelligent, just as they are...

Hi.. do you know of any AAs who have ever lived in Virginia? Is it a state that AAs have good vibes from? My daughter is inyerested in a college there William and Mary. It has a good reputation, but there is a possibility she could also choose Vassar (New York State) or the University of Pittsburgh.

People in the UK are recommending Vassar and Williams and Mary. But I want my daughter to be able to mix with AAs and I don't know if AAs are in Virginia.
UK people are saying the university Kansas is only worth her going to if she is very much into sports (basketball and athletics).

Virginia has more blacks than the national average. It is in the South...William and Mary has some blacks. That being said, there are better schools in Virginia than William and Mary that have blacks.

I agree with Dev's assessment. William and Mary is an old prestigious institution dating back, I believe, to the colonial years and it has an excellent academic reputation, plus, with her being in Virginia, she would receive the full immersion experience in so far as far as the African American culture is concerned. Virginia, Maryland and DC, which share a close geographical proximity is also the home to perhaps the greatest concentration of educated black Americans with the highest median income. Hope that helps.

Oops, just reread Dev's post, but insofar as the options you presented, W&M would meet your stated objectives of academic and culture, provided that's she ventures beyond the campus borders.

This shows the list of North American universities available on the program and the costs. Iowa, Kansas, Vassar, Pittsburgh and William and Mary are the only ones available. In previous years the University of North Carolina had been available and even I know that uni has an excellent reputation, but it is no longer on the list.

You are absolutely right... she would be housed on campus but she would have to personally grab the opportunity to explore the town and go out and about and build friendships with young African-Americans.
Do you think Vassar would make a good second choice to meet her objectives? Feedback from people in the UK is that Vassar has a very good reputation, but that it is in a boring town with not much social life.
What do you think?

* In the UK the University of North Carolina has an excellent reputation, with any elite British students eager to study there.
But of course I don't know what AAs think of that university, just what I have heard from people in the UK.
