HBCU ; “Black People”

I am transferring to a HBCU and man I must say the key to success is not just the education which they provide but:

  • persistence 
  • determination 
  • self motivation 
  • faith 
  • and more

I tried to get an early start on college but they weren’t ready 

I tried to register for classes but they were prepared for me yet 

Now they are ready and I am left out of the loop…

…the reason why the “Black People” part is in the title: (this is a horrible generalization of “Black People” FYI) 

  • black people are considered loud and boisterous = I am not saying HBCU is that BUT to get things done, sometimes raising your voice in a dignified manner is the way to go 
  • black people are considered violent sometimes = HBCU’s are not violent but sometimes making the first move is one way to actually get the ball rolling 
  • black people are considered rude = HBCU means standing your ground and not let the next person walk all over you
  • that’s all I could think of right now…

BUT the reason I bring this is up is mostly a random thought as I enter into a HBCU institution 

I think that too much emphasis is being placed on skin colour… imagine if the world was black and white? 

My first thought was out of frustration but now I can spin my frustration into a learning experience and turn my frown upside down and make do with what I have been giving.
