The school will possibly shut down this year David. Their athletics are toast, just a matter of what day it's announced.


They can't shut down. They are actually an unofficial HBCU school which the majority of students are African American. There will be hell raise by African American leaders if the school was forced to shut down. It would be like trying to shut down or merged the HBCU schools down in the southern states.
Please explain what an unofficial HBCU is.

Chicago State serves mostly impoverished African Americans like the HBCU's down south and east. It can be classified similar to them.

However it was not created to be separate and equal and doesn't have that tag and those traditions. So that's one less barrier needed to shut it down even if there would be a stiff fight to prevent its closure.

That's funny. Learn something new every day. I was unaware that Morehouse and Spellman serve impoverished African-Americans.

It serves all comers but look at what part of Atlanta they're in. The people with the least resources and education growing up often end up at HBCU's.

I believe I do. I drove by both of them when I went to Atlanta. Maybe I didn't spend enough time in the area but I know I wasn't in Sandy Springs or Buckhead, that's for sure. The neighborhood looked pretty run down.

So is USC's or Houston for that matter. Has nothing to do with who they graduate.

You drove by. LOL

This isn't an argument over neighborhoods but has everything to do with the type of students HBCU's attract.

And turn off your racism radar if it's on, I'm a black guy that spent 4 years at an HBCU.

Even if it's better than most, it doesn't change my point.

That you can paint all HBCUs with a broad stroke? Or that Chicago State is a defacto HBCU? LOL
