There can be all African-American colleges. That's not racist. But if there was an all white college, all hell would break loose. Where's the logic in that? amirite?

Well, for some bizzare reason most people don't think racism works both ways.

I was reminded of this when a large black woman tried to shove into a line in front of me with her friend and said 'you're just mean to me 'cos I'm black.'
No. I am stating that everyone else deserves a fair wait in line, thank you. If anything you are being racist because while we were walking around this supermarket, I heard you at least twice refer to me as 'the whitest white-bitch you ever seen'. And some staff who were trying to help you some words that I am fairly sure are the white equivalent of your 'n' word.

I see this happen all the time in many, many places. I'm Hispanic, so i know the stuff they say about Caucasians behind their backs. I see more racism directed towards white people than any other race. That's especially disturbing considering the fact that I live in the south

I'm sorry. I'm not really Hispanic. I'm actually Brazilian according to Oda.

What I don't understand is why would the nationality that fought NOT to be segregated now CHOOSE to be segregated?

I think what the OP means is that there are colleges specifically for black people - i.e. no white people are allowed to join it. whereas with the "mostly white" colleges, black people are allowed to go there, there just isn't as many, thus it looks like a "white college".

How come if you call an African American person black it's racist but you rarely hear people say something about Caucasian people, we are refered to as white

There are no all African-American colleges. There MOSTLY black colleges, just like there are MOSTLY white colleges.

I'm so sick of the race thing.

HBCUs accept lower GPAs and standardized test scores than these schools to adapt to the African-American population. Thus, more African-American students can get into college while still receiving an excellent education.

It would not make sense to have a college targeted at Caucasian students because most colleges already have a majority Caucasian population. Caucasians are not an URM in colleges/universities.

This race thing is really getting annoying. I thought that people were all equal. And historically black colleges are simply institutes of higher education that were started by black people. There are, however, colleges that are historically white. Big deal.

I'm guessing you're referring to HBCUs...historically black colleges and universities. These colleges are not all African-American. They accept all kinds of students but target African-American students. The quarterback at Albany State is white. There aren't a lot of Caucasian students generally but there are often other races/ethnicities.

As for the logic, well back in the day, obviously African-Americans were not allowed to enroll in the colleges/universities. THEY were quite literally all-Caucasian. There are colleges that target African-Americans today because they used to be the only places that these students could enroll in.

As I hope you realize, African-Americans are an under represented minority in colleges today. Many are still at a disadvantage economically and as such do not receive the education necessary to get into highly competitive schools that (whether you want to admit it or not) are mostly Caucasian.

Here in Alabama we have Tuskegee, which is a famous HBCU. I was encouraged to go there because, as a white female, I'd be in a minority there and thus be eligible for a minority scholarship, just like those who are black or Hispanic or Asian can get minority scholarships at schools like Auburn or Alabama.

Can someone please state 5 schools that only allow black people in. There has to be a 100% black attendance for it to be a black only school. If you can't find 5, stfu.

Fyi they are called historicly black colleges white people can go to them the school itself just has a very high population if black students because when blacks could go to college those were the only ones they could go to.

You know I'm pretty sure a week ago a similar "all african-american something = ok all white something all hell breaks loose. where's the logic in that" was posted, so this is copied.

Me too. I think it was talking about that new special on BET called "Black Girls Rock" but if it was "White Girls Rock" it wouldn't be acceptable.

I don't see the logic in some black people. You can be racist and call me a cracker but I ask you politely to move/excuse me and I'm suddenly a black hater and want to lynch you and your family.

The matter of race is not a big issue to me or in country specifically with black people since I think I have seen less then 10 black people in real life. I live in Iceland BTW.

There's no such thing as an all black college. Get your sources right.....

"there can be all African-American T.V. shows that show caucasians as the enemy, but if the reverse was to happen, all hell would break loose".

Really? It's racist to have an institution that was originally started because a minority was not allowed to attend college? It's racist that these same historic institutions now accept everyone? Excuse me while I bang my head against a wall...

i think its a) most colleges are primarily white so whats the point?
b) maybe they can learn about their own culture or something rather than living in white society
