I have to laugh at this section:
As more white and Hispanic students are attending Prairie View A&M, reflecting a trend at the nation’s 120 historically black colleges and universities, there is a sense that the land-grant institution is changing its identity.
“Basically, we’ve lost our soul,” said Hendrik Maison, who served as student body president for two years before graduating last December. “It’s not a black institution anymore. It’s an institution with a lot of black people.”
Cry me a river, pal, and welcome to the world of equality. Like it? I thought not…
What exactly is wrong with the idea of different groups of people having their own institutions? Socialistic concerns aside, we are all different, with unique interests. Homogenization sterilizes, sometimes more than it should.
