As stated
1) Flacco went to Delaware
2) this is wrong

There was a player this year drafted in the first round
Tytus Howard-Alabama State

I’m not sure what you are referring to here in regards to much greater.

9 percent of black students attends hbcu.

From your first link. Feelings? Oh because they went to a HBCU the graduates are more engaged at work?



Dumb.

And the headline of your other article. None of which state actually how successful they are or how good/valuable they are



The facts are out there. Read the thread. Or do some research.

80 percent of black doctors and lawyers were produced by 2 hbcu med schools.



“Although HBCUs only represent 3% of all degree granting institutions in the nation, they represented 17% of the colleges supplying the most African American applicants to medical school in 2013. Xavier University and Howard University are also the top two producers of African American graduates of medical schools; their students accounted for 92 of the nation's African American graduating medical students, more than the top four Predominantly White Institutions (PWIs) that produce large numbers of African American medical school graduates combined [10].”

Or just continue to have a position w no basis other than “feelings.”

Facts are facts.

Segregation is fine by me

Problem is that everyone is fine with blacks or Latinos or Asians segregating into their own communities. When euro-Americans consider a similar action, it is suddenly exclusionary and not ok.

re: Ben Watson Agrees With Jemele Hill Regarding HBCU's
So would they not be "slaves" at HBCUs?
Or do they just feel better about having a black slave master?

I guess I just don't see what this would accomplish

Ben Watson isn't wrong; there isn't much in Hill's article that can be seen as promoting segregation. It's more a speculative article as to how HBCUs could be invigorated if black athletes chose to attend them instead of P5 schools. It's a pipe dream, of course, HBCUs do not have the infrastructure
Correct. If anyone claims to konw Watson they would be aware that he isnt suggesting or supporting segregation.

Most NFl teams don't spend the money on lockerrooms / facilities that some P5 colleges like Oregon,Alabama , LSU,etc... Let alone HCBUS. 17/18 year old kids , especially, are impressionable.

And he didn't need a $40-$70$ million dollar locckerooms & over the top facilities like P5's , weekly televised games or Nick Saban. It's always been a pet peeve of mine that some people truly believe these kids need P5 schools to best achieve their NFL goals.


If 4/5 athletes chose Alabama State( nice facilities) & Alabama A&M over the Crimson Tide then NFL scouts would descend upon those schools.
