Absolutely.
I don' know what is meant "We can't afford to run away from our history," said Leonard Haynes, executive director of the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges, unless Mr. Haynes is saying "We need to STAY segregated!"

At least the students have a chance to graduate from a black college. They would likely flunk out of most white universities.

...or the competition in theirs.........

Neither would the state want this. It would point on the discrepancy in achievement which comes from minority public schools scattered across Georgia.

Majority black schools in Georgia have mostly eliminated gifted classes because they held white and Asians and very few blacks. That had to go!

Maybe one day when this country becomes more mature in racial issues. As for right now, the answer is no.

You should transfer to a white school long enough to learn sentence structure, punctuation, and spelling.

Let me ALSO add that in my first year of college i WAS at a predominately white school. And what I saw was drinking tuesday through saturday, drunk girls lying on the side of the rode, sneaking alchohol into the dorms.I also saw a lot of girls getting drunk and going home to sleep with men they had met an hour earlier. Once, someone got drunk and tried to drive and ended up driving into someone's living room. But you know what I didnt see any of? Studying

When some of these people learn some home training then MAYBE it will be ok for them to merge. Until then.....no. DO i need to continue?

Maybe if we did this, this country would shift it's maturity inside 10 years? If we let it do it itself, 150 years, MAYbe?

I never understood the double standard on this.
If there was an all white school, folks would be hating.
My son tried to get SS for his back and has worked all his young adult life, he needed back surgery. The non working man next door was able to get knee surgery because he fathered 2 kids, out of wedlock, living of his girlfriend and her family. Social Sercurity jumped right in on that one.
It was a double standard, my son is white and the neighbor black. They even had the nerve to tell my son at the SS office that he wasn't black. If we had known she was going to make a statement like that, we would of had a tape recorder. Next time we will have a tape recorder on us when talking to a government official.
Sorry, these kind of action are what keep the racial tensions going. All men are created equal,..... yea right. This is just my opinion and I beleive we should all be treated the same.

I guess it may be the case for some black but believe me, nobody has ever given me anything. My mom was a single mom without any child support after she and my father divorced and she wasnt given a dime and she didnt make much money at all. I think its ppl in general who scam the system who get all this help. I work for the state and believe me when I tell you that ppl of all races are benefiting from the government

You are absolututely right and I don't mean to imply that blacks are the only one's to scam a system. Plenty of white folks play it everyday. I think I was just shocked that a government employee would say such a thing, she should be fired.
The government needs to tighten up and get their sh!t together and stop the scammers. You and I both are being taxed to death, for a no good bum that sits at home.
I was in the same boat as your mom, 3 kids and though I got child support, it barely covered their school lunches. I ended up working 2 jobs to make ends meet. I was one who paid my way with the government since I felt others needed it more than I.
