If you want to go to school to feel good about yourself go to a HBCU, if you want to get a real education attend a major to mid major university.
The fact that Claflin and Fiski is on the list means that there are really low standards for black colleges and universities.
HBCU undergrades always have problems competing with graduates from major universities, including minority graduates. The problem is lack of facilities and connections to cutting edge research and industry leaders-all of which have heavy influence, and access on major college campuses.
HBCU's are not cheaper. Although they lack the facilities (poor libraries and technology overall)they charge the same prices as the world best and most prestigous universities. In the end the graduates cannot compete with their counter-parts from major universities but have equivalent to greater debt loads after graduation.
HBCU's served their purpose but have now become retirement homes for old professors who may not be aware or in touch with new developments in their fields. HBCU's create a false sense of accomplishment in it's graduates and does not prepare them for interactions with the diveres work and professional world, which is most definetly mostly white.
DO NOT CRIPPLE YOUR CHILDREN!!! HBCU's ARE TRAPS!!!
Join the mainstream and prosper!
