Why I chose to attend a historically black college- as a white person


Blah blah blah blahHoward offered me an athletic scholarship that covered a portion of the tuition and an academic scholarship that paid for the rest.  It was more money than Marymount had offered me. Howard’s lacrosse team was also better than Marymount’s. It was a no brainer; I accepted the offer. blah blah blah

LOL

ETA: Shoot, just got to page 2 and saw neka already figured ol girl out.

Lol, who said anything about her wanting a cookie or being a pioneer, though??? Didn't she mention in the article that she's well aware that it's a 4 year thing and that she won't be plagued by racism like her other classmates will be once they exit? I mean, damn. I know y'all give no fuccs about white folk and I ain't trying to champion them either but she didn't say a damn thing in this article that was wrong or off. If anything, it was pretty tame and boring. Y'all are never satisfied. She's white. Y'all want her to take injections for the rest of her life so she can feel what it's like to be a minority? Damn...

I've seen her at a Career Fair my company held.. I did give her a side eye, but whatever.. Keep that BS excuse about "Sally" to yourself.. Most white people get minority scholarships for going to an HBCU and she got an athletic scholarship: I would've taken it too.. I've seen several whites at Howard...

Isn't it in the HBCUs policy to openly accept other students, though? Did she really take advantage of the situation if actually had the athletic skills/grades? I would understand people being pissed off if she spent 4 years at the school only to come to the conclusion that "we don't see colour, everyone's the same and we all have the same opportunities". She didn't say any of that. At least she made an effort not to remain ignorant. But let me stop before I get accused of caping, lol

She keeps talking about what shes learned but she will never know what it is like to be a "minority" so she can stfu. She walks off that campus and becomes part of the majority in this country and can fall right back into her position of privilege that her skin color affords her. 


You know white people always want cookies for things like this...
