Being a White Student at a Historically Black College


I know College is really about getting
an education but here you can get like an education academically as well as
education through life also so much of it is that Brotherhood component that I
thought was it was rare and so when it came time to apply to schools did you
apply anywhere else or no more houses at the only school that I applied to walking down Brown Street and having
people acknowledging you and affirming you that’s something that if they do
here and I love that try to culture shock southern hospitality is a
beautiful thing students here they are extremely hardworking and creative we
produce more black attorneys we produce the most black doctors anybody around
you they’re black students they’re black artists this place is secret I think
this is a safe space for black students and this school was gonna challenge me
in ways that I probably would not have gotten at other institutions and if we
had white people just come in here I will feel disrespected I am as a result
of you know this school do you feel like you really belong here
I feel like I belong here if I’m putting in the word decibel we’re on the campus of Morehouse College
Morehouse is an historically black men’s college that was founded out of the
necessity to give a culturally safe space to black students who are being
excluded by predominantly white institutions in 2018 their existence
feels necessary for a lot of the same reasons in the past year alone hate
groups are openly marching on college campuses a white student admitted on
Instagram to tampering with her black roommates personal belongings
another black student had the police called on her while sleeping on a couch
in the common area of her dorm and others are still victims of racially
motivated attacks the thing is Morehouse like so many other HBCUs is navigating
one of the most difficult financial climates it’s seen since its
establishment and in order to keep their doors open they’ve turned to the
recruitment of non black students that we want to come together but for some of
you coming together means ignoring our experiences and while shows like dear
white people have dramatized the tension around white students entering black
spaces on college campuses that tension is very real at places like Morehouse so
we’re here to meet Thiago he’s a non-traditional freshman at Morehouse
and we’re gonna find out what it’s like being a non black student at an
all-black school Tiago what’s going on what’s up homie
are you doing what’s your name man Chris Chris so I got to actually put on my my
outfit before we start do you mind if I sit on your bed Oh respect to you I’m
sorry now I got you I got you always ask first I appreciate it I’m not trying to
violate so I was freshman year Ben it’s a little bit of a culture shock having
it be a new setting a new city you know when I first got here they told me you
know people are gonna always come up to you and ask you why’d you come to
Morehouse you know people looking at me like oh wow who is this person so that’s
something that was totally different but the cool thing is that it’s like
representative southern hospitality which I really appreciate so my middle
name is actually Jimmy because we share the same birthday that’s cool yeah my
dentist gave this to me that he’s been saving for decades you know growing up
in predominantly black kindergarten and elementary school and then transitioning
to a more white affluent community in my high school you know you get to see the
two different levels I think it was just psychologically just like you know put
me into this position where like I’m naturally more gravitated towards the
black community than the white community what made you want to come to this
school why Morehouse I think I just wanted something you know different how did your friends and peers and your
family how did they respond to this decision
my family was cool with it but I don’t think they really believed that you know
it was gonna end up happening and that’s no knock on them I love my family and
then you know peers they didn’t respond initially well to the idea of more house
so my kids they like ridiculed you yeah definitely first so it was a hard
process this was like my dream right if people were trashing it so I had a ton
of self-doubt and going through this like sort of like identity crisis kind
of realizing oh what am i doing you know am i doing what’s right because
everybody’s saying it’s wrong but every time I took a trip up here at morehouse
people told me oh man they’re gonna love you here I was like okay why am I being
treated better here more house by strangers then you know people back home Morehouse like many of the 101 HBCU
still operating in the United States was founded in the late 1800s to educate
freed slaves who were refused access to predominantly white institutions over
time they evolved in the culturally safe spaces where black students were
encouraged to be free thinking and could escape the oppression that lived outside
their campus gates and these environments help sculpt the great black
minds of America and Morehouse in particular has produced alumni like
Martin Luther King jr. Spike Lee and samuel l.jackson but this legacy is put
at risk with the active recruitment of non black students like we’ve seen at
West Virginia State or Bluefield state both HBCUs with black student
populations of less than 10% so I spoke with Damon Phillips from the school’s
Communications Office to find out why I mean ultimately it’s about finances
ultimately we need to find ways to fund our institutions differently than we
have in the past and so a lot of schools are now recruiting what we consider
non-traditional HBCU students but white students Asian students Hispanic
students there’s a big push has that been met with any criticism
from alumni or current students a lot of people have issue with it you know you
guys occur more how students how does that make you feel when you think about
the idea that there could be a growing number of white students on this campus
I’m on the fence about it because I feel like you know I should still accept
people who they are however at one point in time we weren’t allowed in high
school just because of the color of our skin now am i saying because of the
color their skin they’re not welcome here no but I am saying here at
Morehouse College they’re known for producing black what’s taught here is
not only how we fight for it for where we are but how we fight for who we are
outside of these gates if you grew up in an environment where you were mistreated
and abused and just you know belittled by white people you really don’t want to
see them when you come to a black space that bothers me because we
have to provide a safe haven for our children so there’s a frame of thought
that’s based in fear that if you let one person in then before you know it
everyone will come in in their schools that we’ve seen historically they’ve had
that where you’ve got Kentucky States and Tennessee States in West Virginia
States which is 95 percent white but still an HBCU so people are afraid of
that type of thing happening you’d be where kind of tipping if you
have 10 black student white students at Morehouse that’s not gonna affect the
culture 100 maybe if they made the decision to come to an HBCU you have to
expect that there is a level that they are at you know you have this fear that
they’re at a base level if they decide to come to an HBCU the white student
that conceivably would come here wouldn’t necessarily have the same
commitment because they don’t understand the struggle if they’re not coming in
with like a base level of knowledge you know this is the knowledge that you need
to have have you ever gotten a how to navigate white America Hamza I I miss my
papi I’m very comfortable with things not necessarily being integrated do you
feel like your presence here you’re infringing upon what’s supposed to be a
culturally safe space for people that don’t look like you I see how people
would like think of it from that perspective I know that like I come here
as a white person white male in this country we do have privilege now how can
we use our privilege for the betterment of society how do you feel like this experience is
changing you thus far the most fundamental change right out of
everything is turning me away from a self-absorbed experience is both
decentralizing the attitude of whiteness right the attitude that I’m smarter that
I deserve this opportunity more than you the attitude of supremacy understanding
that had I not come across Morehouse I probably would have never delved deep
into learning about you know the true history of this country all the you know
the things that the US government has done to keep people down
I wouldn’t think it’s fair for someone who characterize you as a person that is
seeking a black experience but how do you respond to people who think you’re
here because you want to be black um just just recognizing that that’s just
not my truth no I don’t want to change you know the color of my skin or act
like they stereotype of black people in society but there are elements to black
culture like the hospitality besides yeah they’re listening CIA’s monitoring
right now man I know they are losing wine that’s what the grilled chicken
yellow rice dish yellow right yeah I’m sure all of you had sort of like an
idea of what Moor house is gonna be by the time that you got here did you guys
think you were gonna have like a white friend when you got the moor house next
to me – so when I seen him on moving bed I hadn’t expected UTI though and even
after I did meet together I didn’t expect to talk to the ttio after all
right well at first I didn’t know his intentions so I didn’t I didn’t trust
the alcove too much everyone was a little bit skeptical of white person in
this black space just because an America weekend if you have a history of white
people coming into black spaces doing that’s okay then right but see how
that’s a great dude like he’s not doing this to be in some experiment he’s doing
this for the same reason that I’m here I was abandoned and when he explains to me
why I was like wow like that’s my loss you know he kind of has the same vision
that you know a more automation so their only reason that like I’m being able to
be cool everybody is because of these sort of interactions that godlike Kaleo
guys like Brandon Johnson Jackson Kip men and Morehouse and Morehouse men
throughout my life that have like helped me develop as a person so really I’m
just another person here ultimately I have to speak in Thiago for the first
time I knew the wrong thing to do was make her feel like she’s not loved she’s
a mute injured so in order for me to change his mind said I needed to be cool what is the thing that you love the most
about Morehouse is what do you value the most about this place what I pretty much
love the most is the mission or Morehouse that sort of unique mission of
having men become leaders that just changed the world practically and that’s
something that I wanted to be a part of have you taken any leadership positions
since you’ve arrived to you so I am the president of this dorm which is deemed
as a big deal right because of you know the obvious wait what’s the obvious
obviously you know a white student and by the most famous dorm
being the president of that mmmthat’s uh feel like very ironical right that’s the
right word so you’re being the president of graves rubbed some people the wrong
way oh definitely how did you become president I ran an election I remember
like I wanted to run for Vice President or treasurer because I didn’t think you
know president was possible I didn’t have that courage but people in this
hall encouraged me and then I ran what somebody taught me was that it’s never
about somebody voting for you it’s always about the message have you had to
confront your minority status here at this institution yeah um you know a
student earlier this semester you know stopped me and asked me why am I here
and we’re like a condescending undertone right anywhere you know people are not
gonna like you so I was a little bit you know anxious and whatnot not scared but
anxious you know I hope people will accept me people might say something or
look at me a certain way it’s fine it’s not personal especially because
like most of those people you know they don’t know me but it’s okay the history
of this country right and all the oppression has led people to feel this
way and I would say 99% of my experience
this year have been extremely amazing about 1% I don’t take it personally well
at the end of day everybody has their own individual judgment I judge you know
you judge we all judge but when people get to know me I think people will have
their own perspectives ok we’re gonna go talk to Professor Robin Marcus an HBCU
alumni and former professor to get her perspective on why historically black
colleges and universities are so important when you’re walking across a
campus and you’re reminded of who also walked on those on that lawn right who
said in those rooms the legacy is palpable to be able to step into that
space know that it was carved out for you when the rest of your life says
something very different about your value your intelligence your potential
at least for four years you’re not gonna have to think about racism and so when a
white student says you know I wanted to try something different or you know I
felt this calling to the mission of the school what is what are you here um well
that’s nice but you can’t you don’t understand what it meant for this grass
to be this this sod to be here you you don’t know that what does that mean
though that means that the shared the body the full weight of history what
that institution has stood for what it has meant for us us black people is it
reverse racism to have schools that are only for black students okay so I don’t
even understand that word that term for real and I get that is an argument it’s
a specious one it’s a dumb one racism has to do with structures with systems
with legislation all of that not it’s not fair because you’re black and you
can do it and I’m white and I should be able to do it that ain’t if that’s what
you call reverse racism I’m trying to conversation with you do you guys feel
like it is problematic that we’ve come here to showcase the experience of a
non-black student at an all-black school well I mean I genuinely want to know yes
why why do you say controversial because of course it’s already frowned upon that
how come they can get into where we want to be but we can’t get into where they
can this is a space where people that have been consistently marginalized for
the last 400 years have come to change that narrative yet when we get here when
the national media comes to have a conversation with us who do they want to
speak with the only perspective that’s relevant is the perspective of a young
person it doesn’t look like us I do like the fact that you’re here in order to in
order to allow us to drive our narrative but at the same time there is nothing
that a young non-traditional student can bring to the culture of Morehouse
Spellman o’clock it’s us culturing here so you asked about this question of
bringing I’m gonna just be blamed bringing a lot more white feeding into a
predominantly black space where Morehouse right now I’m slightly
uncomfortable that only because so many students came tomorrow specifically to
feel human and to not be the humanized be the most human that they could
possibly be in a society like this do you guys take issue with the fact that
there are a certain number of recruitment dollars that are reserved to
attract a non black student to Morehouse or Spelman or Clark is that a fact this place is sacred our ideas who we
are as people we feel safe here and if we had white people just coming in here
and taking over a 40% of the population I will feel disrespected I would love if
a white person with reddington’s came here and learned about us as black
people you have a lot to offer and I think it’s just a shame that we want to
keep that to ourselves come see what black people can do like I
don’t want to do that you can learn my history like in an African American
diaspora class I’m in pain because you all don’t see the bigger picture you see
what’s in front we just see the bigger picture here’s the bigger picture
Morehouse and Spelman recruit the best and the brightest girls and put them
next to the best and the brightest boys there’s always been white students here
always when I was a student here we called him white Mike that was his dad
any student that comes of this school regardless of their intent they’re gonna
be influenced by you all they have no choice
the reason why we don’t have everything is about money it’s about money it’s not
about anything else but money but look what we do what we have who do we have I
think that students have a right to be on concerns these schools have for a
long time been the only place where you can get an education but more
importantly a place you can get an experience because a lot of our students
are coming from environments where they’ve never seen a black instructor
that fear of oh my god they’re gonna take this from me too is rooted in a
really personal place for a lot of students and I understand that it is a
good thing to expand the applicant pool that you’re looking for people that
criticize that have to understand that the school is trying to figure out a way
to bring in more dollars couldn’t the introduction of the non traditional or
non black students of the HBCU campus uh sure in the gentrification of the HB
to you either we change and we adapt to what’s around us or we’re gonna struggle
a lot and some schools are gonna close because they didn’t want to embrace
what’s coming what is your response to someone that says you’re only here
because your wife essentially that you are an affirmative action admittance in
my case you know it’s not true like I genuinely care about this school and
this mission so I’ll just pass these around is that part of the reason why he
felt it so important to become a student ambassador that’s definitely the main
reason behind it so this is probably not you what you were expecting right a
white student and HBCU giving you the tour right when I was a freshman in high
school we had a Morehouse man and she really embodied that spirit of a leader
and regardless of the racial dynamics of this campus I saw that potential in
myself but I like to know a little bit more
about you so can anybody tell me where they’re from today
Indiana cool Philadelphia how about you okay okay are you guys happy about the
Superbowl and whatnot oh yeah I’m in the 76ers they just won last night right I’m
a Celtics fan just how to put that out there a lot of those first individuals
to gentrify a cultural space of some kind recognize the value or an
opportunity that exists and I’m curious what the difference between you and that
person is I guess the way I try to look at it is how can I contribute to the
campus how can I get involved how can I be engaged how can I make you no one
else a better place in the truest sense so we’re about to enter King’s chapel
this is a kind of a sacred space at Morehouse I think this is a safe space
for black students and other students and I think it should remain that way I
don’t want this to spark a lot of like white students come here I don’t
like that’s not what I want yes better pay more house I don’t know those
numbers I do know that there might be three white students in the entire
school me somebody that’s in the ROTC program and then a Japanese exchange
coming here meeting Thiago this is the first time I’ve ever seen a white male
as a minority why you would want to immerse yourself in a completely black
space I think there was a lot of people off in the beginning but meeting Thiago
and hearing his very honest desire to initiate change and acknowledge the
privilege that he was born with I think it’s a good thing you look this way
right this is century campus every year in May we graduate I think the most
african-american men in the entire world all in one place this used to be a civil
war site think about that from like a spiritual standpoint the most graduating
african-american men are on top of there like the remains of fallen Confederate
soldiers yeah you are going to diversify its students like Thiago that you want
to recruit here not people that want to come here and take something away and
feel no calling to give something back but it’s important to keep in mind that
there are only so many beds and so many desks and when you give one away to even
the most well-intentioned non-traditional student you could be
taking that opportunity from a young black student that may have needed it
more so do you have any feeling of regret or guilt that you took a position
away at this school from a young black man that needed it I will I would be in
a and I will be if I don’t

  • Dont want to integrate whites.. but want to be integrated into every other facet of the population… your wasting your brain, annd college!

  • Meanwhile in Belgium, we have our first McDonalds-studentclub (fraternity)

  • Shouldn’t college be an experience to prepare for life in the real world? I remember this study where they showed cartoons of different skin colors to little white kids and the kids thought the dark skin was bad since they’ve never seen anything like it before. Yeah we should have safe spaces like unions but the complete lack of exposure could just lead to further separation of race.

  • It's only racists when you do it to the blacks

  • In many cases, African-American students have ceased being a majority at HBCUs,” according to a new report from Diverse Issues in Higher Education published last week. “At some, they are a small minority among a White majority.” This due to slashed funding for HBCUs. Just because we see the current president appears to have given funding to HBCUs upon further examination in most area he decreased funding. The blueprint plans to cut nearly $4 billion in Pell Grant funding, which 70 percent of students at HBCUs rely on to study at the university level. More simply, without Pell Grants, black kids aren’t going to college.

  • Wait you guys have a campus where you have a numerus nullus for white people? God! The nazis at least started with a numerus clausus!

  • Why does is roommate look like drake

  • But the college school say historically black colleges, so why would a white person attend a black college. Is these white students agents for the government?

  • The past has created so many complex problems for today, although at least there the problems of today and not the ones of the past.

  • Call me racist but isn't it racist to only allow a specific race into a college?

    Doesn't that make these people hypocrites?

  • We need native College

  • Always wanted to go to an HBCU. I grew up in an heavily populated African American urban town. I can understand how it feels to be the minority. I've always dated black men, most of my friends are black or something other than white. I feel 100% comfortable around any race but exceptionally comfortable around African Americans. I did go through a time earlier in my elementary years, wishing I was black so I could blend in more instead of sticking out. Every party, gathering or event I attended had the same embarrassing moment when I would go to dance with my friends and some little boy would mimic my dancing with an exagerated off beat rendition of how he thought white girls danced. Of course, everyone would fall out in laughter, and start doing their own "white girl dance" all around me. This was nothing new, I just kept doing my thing and the party went on after a few moments of embaressment. It's crazy because those guys who would make fun of me would eventually end up walking me home and asking me to be their girlfriend. I was the white girl who the boys wouldn't dare bring home to mom, and that's their words not mine. So we would hide our relationship from everyone, this way they wouldn't get teased by their buddies. Elementary school can be tough for all children. I still loved all my friends and wouldn't change the way I grew up in regards to those very trying years in school, it made me head strong and unafraid of who God made me to be. If your going to these HBCU with good intentions, then the human in all of us will see the true you, no matter what color you are❤️

  • This is why I don't believe in God anymore

  • When you go to a new school everybody around you are practically strangers so don't give it that shit man, you are doing something not normal so your an attention seeker plain and simple. try taking a stroll down the hood man if you want some attention it won't take long I promise you,

  • Why should he be discriminated against? It happens to blacks at PWI's but does mean it that two wrongs make a right?

  • The black guy said if he had white students attend that school he would feel disrespected . That's racist as fuck he think just he's black he gets the right to be racist . Let a white person say that and they are seen as skin head racist

  • If I was rich I'd donate money to this school. Its important if black people feel they need a safe space to have that safe space. Idk how black people feel because I'm not black. Just my opinion

  • I read that title sooo wrong I read it as “being a white supremacist attends an Historical black college” and was so confused

  • 10:37 “The feds” this kid is alright with me 😂

  • im from africa , this is some racist shit

  • if you have anything negative to say about this ,please @ me because i will shut you up real quick.

  • My opinion in this is that you need to be in a space of different ethnic groups you can't just lock yourself in your own bubble in a multicultural country, that minimises your knowledge about other ethnicities. Imagine if this was only white people premises it would obviously be referred as racism but this is not… I know being around people that are the same culture as you you feel more safe but it doesn't matter where you are in this world evil can take place any day and anytime.

  • This place was build years ago because of the fact that black people didn't have rights back then, they where treated as animals and not as human beings, but all of this has completely changed, I'm not saying there is no racism unfortunately there will be forever but not at that extent. Now that everyone has the right to say whatever they want or do whatever they like doesn't really link with why this school still doesn't let white people unless they know their culture it just doesn't work now days (my opinion). I think that this is all to just follow up and continue the history behind this building or the aim of just educating black people, is kinda like how the children follow the parent's footsteps.

  • This is garbage.

  • We could conquer so much if we could just come together and stop the hate

  • In my eyes black women are just as beautiful as white women…beauty comes in a rainbow of colors

  • Please jesus i pray in your mighty name that people who watch this will see we can all come together and love n respect one another…we have so much to teach and learn from one another…jesus and mlk both worked in love for people and their communities…they both just wanted better for everyone

  • You limit your selfs by who u let into your world…more people need to see the beautiful things u are doing and by accepting all people means a spread of the knowledge and in the end more wealth

  • Look at this the new Age Rosa Parks and he is White!!!

  • Ironical? Oh, honey. I sure hope you leave that college smarter than when you went in.

  • I'm white, but I'm a gay female. Whenever i hear seemingly anti-white statements (such as the woman who said she'd feel disrespected by white people being on campus), i try to think of it in terms relative to me. I replace black with being gay and white people with homophobic bigots. How would i feel if someone from a traditionally bigoted group of people were to come into my safe space of openly gay people? I'd feel disrespected, too. Here I am in an all gay college where i can feel safe, unjudged and understood by my peers, just to have "the enemy" (so to speak) come into that space. It would feel like a slap in the face to me as well. With that being said, however, i do feel that those feelings (for me) would stem from fear, insecurity and a lack of trust. By having a traditionally bigoted person in my college, not only would it give them a chance to open their eyes and hearts to my culture, but it will help me quell my fears about them as well. I understand why that woman said what she said and feels what she feels, and it's totally justified. It's just up to her to allow her college experience to help her evolve into a more confident and trusting person.

  • How is saying you will not replace us make them a hate group? You say black pride everyones like proud black man. If i said white pride people lose their shit. I cant be proud to be me?

  • ok i know this is completely arbitrary to the actual message of this, but i fucking lost my shit with the siri joke. "we're losing one"

  • How can anyone watch this and not see how the majority of the people in this video are racist?

  • I understand where this video coming from. But i also understand that I still don't like this. because this is the life we live racism is still around, Even in 2019, Now a days they just try to make it as if it's not color try using different words but behind those words is I don't like you because you're black..not all are like that of course we know that and me being a gay black man I get this from sexuality so I know. But true also saying no whites at a all black school not making things better I'm not trying to go back to them times it's 2019 that just made me even more sad😥 watching this mess there is nothing really to prove isn't like a lot if blacks really standing by each other now a days we got ower own issues with ower own kind just like the white people do if anything try saying ower people need to get together and stay strong together with one another…

  • I've wondered if white people could attend those HBC's and if not that is pretty racist.

  • @2:15 really hate groups? Just cause theyre white people.

  • @8:45. We feel the same way buddy! But we cant have it so neither should you! 🙂

  • Its especially ironic that alot of these kids r half white or super high yellow. But r so quick to be pro black which is fine. But dont be anti white.

  • I like the dude and what he was doing 100% until he started mentioning his privilege. Also when he said "it's not his truth". Those are very fed words. I thought initially that he was actually separating from politics. Don't get me wrong, I think he's a very good dude but those 2 scenarios changed my opinion some. Very cool that he was the president.

  • A knowledge,system,concepts,language borrowed from W** civilization.If they are so obsessed with a race and they do not feel be an americans then find your safe space at Africa or a different s+++hole…Under the tree learn how to hit a drum and cook fufu …

  • ive never seen more real racism than in this video

  • I made it to 5:17 and couldn't stomach anymore of this nonsense. If just our atheletes only went to HBCU's the UGA's and OSU's would go bankrupt in a year or two. Our basketball players fund water polo and cricket scholarships. Not o.k.

  • People in the comment section mentioning that blacks are being racist as if its a new thing. Every human is capable of being racist, people. Move along.

  • He easily got the n word pass

  • Tbh we were better off segregated we would be more advanced than others and white people are afraid of that.

  • Why can’t black people have some things to themselves? We find white people in black business ALL THE FUCKING TIME. It’s clear there’s a divide and there has been for a very long time. As a black person, I would love if we all could kumbaya and have world peace but we are just not there. History is in the past, but it does not magically go away.

  • It's funny the last video of vice I watched before this is about a few white students that made a white student union and they are called racist and nazis and they have made posters with swastikas and WSU on it White Student Union and all the black people are going crazy that these white people are not being inclusive and here we are in this video and the black people are going crazy cause a white guy is going to their school one even said I would feel disrespected if white people came to this school and this is the bullshit that u see every day these blacks and leftists crazies scream about equality and on the other hand they beat the shit out of people and call them nazis and racist cause their white. Getting tired of it and the funny thing is so are a lot of black people a lot of browns asians all the minorities are also getting tired of this constantly talking about race and making it a topic and constantly screaming that white people are taking over and at the same time saying we are superior to white people what ever minority that may be saying that and it's like well which is it are whites so smarts and so strong that they are running u like puppets or are u so superior that white people are beneath u

  • Imagine any college have a debate over whether they should be letting black students in and having white students say they wouldn’t feel comfortable letting black students on campus

  • Wow they establish a black education like that!!!
    Big ups to hbcu

  • Read the Bible and learn to love how Jesus did and it will clean any pollution you hold inside

  • We’re going backwards

  • That was most racist place I have ever seen.

  • americans are obsessed with race

  • Bruh they not racist it’s just its unexpected to see the only white person their and they feel weird

  • White ppl in these comments want to be oppressed so bad! Stfu

  • Vice is a racist media outlet.

  • I went to a 90% black charter school in my teens. It was all good yuh nuh um saying 😃

  • 6:06 holup ,wut?

  • I'm black, and I didn't grow up in the struggle, so can I not go to an HBCU.

  • The BIGGEST reason why every minority in America hates eachother is because all of us believe that those races come from a position of privilege based on skin color. Watch American History X carefully and you'll understand.

  • We need both parts to stop the hate work together to stop those in power, and restore peace for the ones living without it.

  • Discrimination is a mindset. Regardless of skin colour, faith or sexuality. The hate, pain, self loathing and disgust felt by its victims isn’t defined by colour, spirituality or sexual preference. I think the biggest mistake we all make is the subconscious acceptance to remain inherently superficial. Are we not all conceived, nurtured through gestation and birthed exactly the same way?
    My entire life saw me excluded because of the family I was born into. Consistently spat on everyday as I walked to and from school. Assaulted in almost every way because a few thought it was their right to punish me for a belief held by a government that still fuels a civil war today. My own “people” turned their backs when I questioned their core values by having a family with one man, who may not be one of my aforementioned “people” but I love him and have done for over 20 years.

    I’m maybe white on the outside but within me, there’s a myriad of colours and a well worn heart that’d love to know what the freshmen referred to as Southern Hospitality’ feels like.

  • Man imagine if a group of white guys sat around talking about if a black student should be allowed to attend.

  • The preservation of what some of these people call 'black safe spaces' is not what we should be aiming toward. Progressing society so that the feel for the NEED of such spaces no longer exists, is what we should be trying to reach. This young white man is doing nothing wrong.

  • Color

  • Black people keep looking for revenge, but they're never satisfied. Only a race war will solve this.

  • Kuddos to Tiago! Hopefully one day we wont even be having this discussion. People of the United States will practice inclusion and not exclusion based on the color of our skin. A factor none of us have control over! From a black woman who grew up in Rapid City, SD I was a "racial minority" but I'm thankful for all the people who did not care that I did not look like them and still got to know me for me before making their judgements to accept me or not in their lives! Not saying that was everyone but there are enough people walking around with love in their hearts to evoke positive change for future generations!

  • ADOS secession.

  • This documentary is disgusting the amount of racism is ridiculous.

  • Need We ask Blacks who attended majority-Why?t schools if they experienced any hostility against their racial status?

  • What a beautiful human. I love videos like these, it shows that we aren’t so different after all. There will be people that don’t accept you but becoming an educated and respectful person is above all.

  • Excellent video.

  • Y'all are babies. Be a foreigner in Japan. Theyll REALLY make you feel like shit. Worse if you got tattoos like me.

  • Its funny to me that they do not know how racist they all are …& the whole victim mentality needs to go…Not forgotten but definitely not lived by like it is atm…

  • Vice gave it to the white guy. Surprise there!

  • Wait tho she didn’t even want to acknowledge reverse racism? That can be just as problematic. My son’s friend will only give money to black homeless people……. so what are we teaching our kids, our students….. we are one nation under God…. but if we want that we have to live it and be it every day. We have to be the change…… it starts with us.

  • Notice how even though it’s predominantly black college notice how they still welcome any race. If it was an all white college they would want you dead.

  • Ya know it’s funny to me how when a baby is born or threaten to pay for something the parent did or someone else did people be like “oh but it’s just a baby oh man what has he/she done to you to deserve this”, yet we look at teen/adult whites and immediately hold them as “racist” cause people they never even met from 100+ years ago did, I get it there’s still racist whites but let’s face it there’s racist blacks and Hispanics, I had a Black Country friend who disliked and I quote “ghetto ass idiots”, like you gonna kill/harm/talk shit at your neighbor cause you got some dude from Russia on Xbox live slurring racist shit at you just cause he’s white and you assume the Russian dude white to? I don’t get where human beings heads be at now a days, like we want something but we don’t want it, I don’t fucking get it someone explain cause I’m tired

    Edit: oh shit now I see there’s a video talking about blacks under trumps presidency? Ah shit y’all really can’t be talking shit now 😂😂😂, just kidding, I know not ALL of his followers believe in every little thing he does, but see? I’m more open minded to see the facts than hop aboard the damn hype train.

  • Why are so many commenters with Spanish surnames verbally attacking Blacks on YouTube?🤔

  • They’re afraid of white people tell them they’re racist and they’ll explode.

  • “I’d feel disrespected” yeah white people felt disrespected in the 50’s and y’all exploded because of it. Reverse racism ladies and gentlemen.

  • They’re mad some recruitment budget is now going towards white students. Now they’re basically mad at affirmative action after they’ve praised it for years. Some of these people are full of shit and will never do anything in life no matter how much of an education they get.

  • Lol anyone got updates on this white student? I bet he’s not there no more lmfao

  • For the most parts the great black students of Morehouse welcomed the White student. But for any young student of color who said that young man dont belong there……. You dont belong there. But For the Most part im Proud of that Universities Diversity.

  • Wonder how many know that Catholics also built their own universities because they weren't admitted to Protestant Ivy League universities. Here a few that are better known and they do have a diverse enrollment and I think better for it. Boston College, Fordham University, Georgetown University, University of Notre Dame, Villanova University.

  • Nothing wrong with integration. I understand why HBCU alumni and current students feel some type of way but we are all black when the lights go out man.

  • Don’t get it wrong. I get why this is a topic for discussion buts it’s ridiculously hypocritical. If it was an all white school it would be deemed a KKK Breading ground.

  • Not what mlk stood for, its disgusting, black, white, red, equality for all.

  • The interviewer wavy asf

  • Basically everybody hates chris he was only black kid in school now only white kid in school

  • Most of y’all in the comments are missing the point of the whole video and are also part of problem if racism in America.

  • Why are they so scared of us, we’re not Vikings that take over Europe anymore, we think mayonnaise if spicy

  • Can not anyone talk about the legendary dances they make?
