Any college that touts itself as a bastion for black males and then is surprised when non black males don't apply is a dumb college. Same goes for other HBCUs. They tout themselves as a black school and then act shocked when non blacks rarely apply? What an absurd notion.

"13% of the country is black but that has nothing to do with...." ok den.
You seem to blaming the HBCU's for being what they are.You know we should call UGA an " HWCU" because thats exactly what it is.
You have a notion that most black colleges are not expanding their historical bases.NOT TRUE. Schools "tout" their histories because they have played a very important role in history for juts black people.With the exception of the "black ivy" schools like Morehouse,Spelman,Howard,Hampton and Tuskegee,i can honestly say are nowadays more open to accepting and recruiting students from all over.

Lets face it white people dont apply because they assume that in most cases its inferior.In many cases it may be true but many whites will go to the community college before they go to an obviously better black 4 year college.

For the thousandth time THIS IS NOT ABOUT YOU PERSONALLY.

You deny DNA has influence on personal characteristics, or that there are traits common to those who share more DNA vs less?. Curious. Aren't blacks predisposed to Sickle Cell at much higher rates than whites? You should take your theory to a geneticist, I'm sure he would be.....intrigued...

Tell me about some blacks in Africa that show significantly more advancement than other African blacks. Tell me about these large differences that have led to significant developmental differences among Africans. Tell me about the African country that leads the world in something besides starvation and poverty. Not counting SA, of course, for obvious reasons.

I'm no expert on Native Americans, but I know many tribes still struggle to fully assimilate, and that alcoholism plagues them at higher levels than the rest of the population. This is widely recognized. People of Native American desent receive many advantages, by federal law, due solely to their race. How dare we base anything on race!! Right? Or is it ok when it means free money for a "racially minority" group? Hmmmmm
1. I am not about to argue about what you or Germans consider a race. If you think Germans are a different race from Brittons and Italians and that Japanese are a different race then the Chinese then whatever. This is why people think race is a social construct.

2. I never said there were no outward physical differences between races. It looked like you were trying to say DNA determined culture and customs which is just silly. But it seems you are.


Now you are trying say that all people in Africa are the same becuase they don't meet whatever standards of "development" you are comparing. Lol, yeah let's ignore the vast languages , religions , customes and art of the different groups of people. If they don't have flat screen tvs and McDonald's they are all the same anyway right? Man, I don't know what to say about you but sadly many other whites think the same way.

Tigers, I understand you have some beef with black people but what are you trying to accomplish? At least in this Atlanta forum?

If your goal to show blacks are dumb or have low IQ then just say it and move on. We feel sad . Really we do. White people are awsome and superior man. Some of my best friends (seriously) are white. Very smart guys.

My goal,if I have one, is to refute the current popular narrative. It says that, if white people didnt exist, the world would still have all the great modernities it enjoys, just without the racism and genocide that white people engage in. You yourself suggested that race means nothing, that we are all the same underneath our skin color. The implication being that if left alone, people from the continent of Africa were just as likely to put a man on the moon or establish the Internet as anyone else. Also, that a bunch of slave owning whites abused and used and stole thei way to success, and therefore white western culture is an affront to humanity, and should be stripped of its mainstream status. Furthermore, white western culture has succeeded only because it subjugated others and thus it's undeserved, unjust and largely criminal. When white (males) do experience success today, it's because of racial favoritism and the good ole boy network, not talent, hard work or ability.the corollary is, of course, that black failure is the responsibility of white/white culture, and that black success is achieved despite white interference t the contrary.

I could go on but suffice it to say, the pendulum has swing much too far. It needs rebalancing, and a serious reality check.

So if we are not the same under the skin and the people of Africa would not have done anything, do you believe that white people have a higher IQ?

This is a recent message I received in the reputation comments:

"you have to bethe most stupidest ignorant low life I have ever seen on a blog. The same people u talk about are going to be the same people your going to need help from mark my words. I need to find out where your typing from"

Now, who is the lowlife: The person sending an anonymous message over an already anonymous network? The person making a cowardly personal threat without having the courage to identify their anonymous online persona? The person who writes things like "the most stupidest" or "your" instead of "you're" (twice!)? LOL

Note: I "type from" a lot of places. Ever heard of wireless internet? But give finding out a go. Here is a hint: Mostly, Im in Atlanta, but not always.

Ill mark your words, I sure will.

Call UGA whatever you like. The fact is, all large universities today boast, brag and compete over whether their campuses are more diverse than others. Meanwhile, a place like Morehouse sticks to their black male demo almost excusively. Never mind whites, how about asians, hispanics, indians, arabs, etc.

White people also dont enjoy being subjected to constant harangues about the evilness of their race. Nor do they appreciate "lessons" on how almost all black problems are the fault of racism and "white power". Those are key reaons whites have near zero interest in attending HBCUs. The subpar quality of the education is indeed another.

I am a white person and what I don't enjoy is your vile racist ranting. Generalizations about what people of any skin color enjoy, think, etc. are always absurd, and yours are offensive to boot.
