RE: Savannah State headed to D-II
There's no taking offense, it's just that the term "half-HBCU" is a misnomer. Maybe if half of the colleges in the school were historically segregated or something or that were two distinct sides on campus but you either or aren't. Tennessee State is an HBCU through and through and even if it became 100% Anglo-Saxon, it'd still be an HBCU.

RE: Savannah State headed to D-II
Like I said, I made up the term for the sole purpose of reflecting that Tenn St had a modern era merger with another public university (which AFAIK is unique for HBCU's, in the modern era) and which might explain why it's the only DI HBCU not in the MEAC or SWAC. Had no intension of implying it was "lesser".

Keep calm, and carry on
