Study: HBCU Graduates Earn Less Than Black Graduates Of Traditionally White Institutions HBCU attendance and graduation reflect mostly African American and women. Traditionally white institutions reflect African American and women but more and more Africans from the continent and the Carribeans. Could this ACCOUNT for the DIFFERENCE. It all on how people see those elusive SOFT SOCIAL SKILLS. I think alot of people KNOW what I am SPEAKING ABOUT but lets just say it depends on TOLERANCE LEVEL (BEYOND BELIEF) from BOTH PARTIES. Oh well.
