Jemele Hill is very proud of writing a story about how we should segregate college students based on skin color.
Don’t make that face, we didn’t write this garbage.
Take a gander.
Very proud that my first magazine piece for @TheAtlantic is appearing in the October issue. Been working on it for some time. Here it is —> Why Black Athletes Need to Leave White Colleges https://t.co/orCDWF8UkT

From The Atlantic:
Black athletes have attracted money and attention to the predominantly white universities that showcase them. Meanwhile, black colleges are struggling. Alabama’s athletic department generated $174 million in the 2016–17 school year, whereas the HBCU that generated the most money from athletics that year, Prairie View A&M, brought in less than $18 million. Beyond sports, the average HBCU endowment is only one-eighth that of the average predominantly white school; taken together, all of the HBCU endowments combined make up less than a tenth of Harvard’s.
Why should this matter to anyone beyond the administrators and alumni of the HBCUs themselves? Because black colleges play an important role in the creation and propagation of a black professional class. Despite constituting only 3 percent of four-year colleges in the country, HBCUs have produced 80 percent of the black judges, 50 percent of the black lawyers, 50 percent of the black doctors, 40 percent of the black engineers, 40 percent of the black members of Congress, and 13 percent of the black CEOs in America today. (They have also produced this election cycle’s only black female candidate for the U.S. presidency: Kamala Harris is a 1986 graduate of Howard University.)
Sooo … segregation? For real?
Full circle back to segregation? Psst…there is no such thing as a “white college”. Universities are some of the most diverse institutions on earth. https://t.co/TolW09MOIJ

Where are these "white colleges"?
What a garbage start. This is how to take a career re-set and crap on it.

You know, that one college.
You're on the exact opposite side of Dr. Martin Luther King.
Take a bow. You've become a full-fledged racist.https://t.co/tDCtHXniYa
