I applaud the brotha's passion.

However, IMO, there are socio-economic factors applicable to the present-day hues of Bluefield and Delaware State that Dr. Issa may be neglecting to explore.

Moreover, he mentioned 3 HBCUS he attended in his collegiate and graduate studies: Southern, TSU (TX) and Howard. Which begs the question of his views on any racial demographic projection for those Black institutions.

I also wonder if Dr. Issa is aware of how many HBCUs which have closed down during his own lifetime.

And, unlike the racial and socio-economic factors in WV and DE, I just can't imagine HBCUs like Morehouse, Spelman, Howard, Hampton and many others EVER becoming predominately WHITE.

I think we all know that when it comes to hbcu's issues they are oft times matters of finances.
I do not think his intentions were to deliberately neglect the socio-economic situations, but
when these schools 'whiten' up, curriculum changes and the legacy ultimately vanishes, to say the least.
But if it happened to these 3 schools, it could happen to more. And if it matters to those that we maintain
this hbcu's, historically, then attention should be given to what is on the horizon...

My apologies.

this very subject. Give me a little time. I 'll go back and reference the 3 schools he spoke
of.
