No Betsy, the founding of HBCUs was certainly not a choice made out of opportunity.
I just don't get it. She obviously didn't intend to and wasn't addressing segregation per se. She was directly and obviously lauding HBCUs. What she said was factually accurate and relevant to the topic at hand. Maybe I am nuts but I just don't see how this level of projection is either persuasive or helpful.
But I just try and shy away from assuming someone doesn't know what they are talking about or is somehow nefarious because I might disagree with their policy ideas.
