    The Historically Black College and University Capital Financing Program could possibly be axed from the government spending bill.

    President
    Donald Trump signed a $1.1 trillion spending bill on Friday which was accompanied by a signing statement where he implied that federal financing for historically Black colleges and universities was unconstitutional, reports Politico.

    Historically Black Colleges and Universities, "Bags of Money and the Promise of Opportunity"

    Of all the political spectacles of Donald Trump's candidacy and presidency, few could match the improbability of his meeting in the Oval Office in late February with nearly 100 presidents of historically black colleges and universities. The official photo of the event captured a beaming Trump surrounded by a dozen African-American educators smiling and applauding his promise to boost federal funding to their schools. Considering that Trump was the most racially polarizing national politician since George Wallace, the episode inspired an outcry on many HBCU campuses and critical commentary from leading black journalists.

    Historically Black Colleges and Universities, ''Bags of Money and the Promise of Opportunity''

    Trump was not reaching out to HBCUs because he had suddenly discovered his tolerance gene.

    I was critical of the HBCUs for participating in the "Donald's" circus. Turns out I had good reason to be so critical.

    How crucial are historically black colleges? Just look at who’s graduated from them.

    Graduates of historically black colleges include, clockwise from top left: Oprah Winfrey, Martin Luther King Jr., Katherine Johnson and Thurgood Marshall.

    From Thurgood Marshall to Oprah Winfrey, the nation’s historically black colleges and universities have educated generations of African American pioneers and professionals — doctors, lawyers, scientists, ministers, writers and thinkers. The most famous graduate of a historically black college, slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., has a monument on the Mall and a federal holiday to celebrate his birthday.

    So on Friday, there was consternation among black lawmakers and educators when the White House released a statement raising questions about the constitutionality of federal funding measures that help historically black colleges and universities obtain low-cost construction loans for repairs, renovations and new buildings.
