    HBCUs are the way to go. An experience like no other. One where our best minds and athletes changed the world.

    I've been wanting to make a scholarship for African American students entering a STEM or allied health field. As the HBCU all star ambassador for St. Philips, and the fact that St. Philips is a historically black college I feel the need to help create opportunities for other African American students who want to continue their education but may not have the funds to. St. Philips is also not a university but a transfer college I feel not many scholarship's a really geared toward African American students  going to transfer colleges or college in general and this can be the beginning of them seeing the importance of having historically black colleges and universities, and I want to take a step forward to rectify that. Any donation helps. Please help me get the ball rolling. HBCU's are important, they allow an African American to be a student. not a black student or another minority student but just a student who can be surrounded by other like minded people who have faced some of the same struggles and can help build each other up.

    Dr. Robinson tells the truth about HBCUs, but a very sanitized version.  We are currently dangling by a thread between the open hostility of the Republican party and the savage indifference of the Democrats, both of whom could care less about the future of HBCUs.  At no time during his presentation did Dr. Robinson acknowledge that we are at war for our very survival as a people world wide and no amount of sympathy or empathy will rescue us from this predicament.  Finally, Dr. Robinson, we are an African people with the God given human right to exist and create whatever institutions we deem necessary to preserve our cultural and historical experience which has enriched humanity from the beginning of time.  It is the height of insanity that we continue to appeal to white people to decide whether or not we have a right to educate our own children in the image and interest of African people for as long as the sun shines and the rivers flow.
