So first of all I have no strong opinion about this at all and no agenda here.


Historically black colleges....aren't they like 99% black?  Um....




Is it because they're 100% private? What if some other minority applies there?

What if I wanted to make an all Irish school.  Let's call it Boston Col...errr...Notre D...errr  Celtics University.

Is that legit somehow? I sorta thought you can't do that
Historically black colleges accept everyone.

White people can and do attend HBCUs.  They're just institutions tailored to meet the needs of blacks.

Just like non-Catholics go to historically Catholic schools all the time (Georgetown, Providence, Notre Dame, Villanova, St. Johns, Seton Hall, etc.).

Many times organizations that sound exclusive to a certain minority demographic, are actually open to everybody.  White people can even join many things like the "Black Student Union" if they wanted to.  Here's an example of one I found through a quick Google search, though I definitely know of others.

Quote
Black Student Union is a safe space in which students can discuss topics of race and other areas of social justice. The club serves as a support group for students of color but is not exclusive to non-white students. Students of all backgrounds are welcome to attend meetings and events.

You can even watch BET if you want to!  Being tailored to something, is not the same as being exclusive to something.

After 18 months with their Bigs, the Littles were: 46% less likely to use illegal drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school, 37% less likely to skip a class

Yeah, three of my white friends went to HBCs, and it wasnít a problem. 

It would be illegal if they set quotas, but they donít.

Out of curiosity why do some of these HBCs have 90% African American enrollment and some have I think 12%? I can only guess that in some cases it has to do with where they are

Location is probably part of it,but my guess is also there isn't a great deal of desire on the part of most Caucasian people to attend.

Good friend of mine went to Howard and met his wife there. He is hispanic but white hispanic.

This has all been very informative. I didn't realize there are HBCs that are actually majority white now.

I wonder if historically women's schools have gone through something similar. As far as I can tell schools like Vassar totally integrated but I'm not sure Wellesley did.

Also I'm not sure how the Radcliff vs Harvard thing shakes out....granted they merged but still

Yeah, one friend went to Howard and two went to Southern.

From what I hear, skin color doesnít mean a lot there, but politics does. Just like a liberal wonít fit at BYU or (less so now) Washington and Lee, conservatives should steer clear of Howard.

Wow. I hadn't even considered where conservatives are...."safest" in upper academia today.

The fairly ignorant stretching for it eja nominees....

BYU
Ole Miss
Yeshiva
BC
Kansas
Texas
TCU
Baylor
any school in Texas
Alabama
Georgetown
Liberty "University"
Bob Jones "University"
schools in Georgia
schools in South Carolina

that's all I can come up with...not an overly appealing list actually

There are conservative schools all over the country.  Many of them are Religious based, but some of them aren't.

I was hoping a question posted here on a Saturday morning would be a little more colorful, desperate, highly concerning, etc.
