It depents on what it is you are looking for in a school.  You have to find out about the school and see if it is something that you can deal with, no matter what school it is.  Every school has a reputation that they have earned.  Some rightly and some wrongly.  Do you research and if you think this is the right school for you, go for it.  If you dont, try again next year.  There is no shame in having to try again next year, or going to Texas Southern.  Make the decision that is RIGHT for YOU.  Not others.

Okay so I read back and got the jist of what was said.  Faith, in some ways I kinda see what you are saying (from your posts and not from that single quote) but you should have known that that quote would have caused a mini-riot in here.  I'll speak for me by saying that I know you don't hate yourself or your people, actually quite the opposite (that's harsh IMO HBCU, but hey you are entitled to your opinion as well).  I just wish we could find ways to keep it civil when we disagree.

(unless it's with RBG, but that's a different story);)

I say alot of crazy stuff on this board but I have never seen anything like this before. Perhaps I'll have to go back and read some of her post but, she didn't even apologize for making such a statement like that. I think she hates herself dude. I mean come on BP. If you say I want white people to like me Ill have a serious problem with that. I cant see why people dont understand why that would piss me off. Everybody says to her I understand where you are coming from..  man.this is crazy. Im moving on though. 

Oh don't get me wrong HBCU, I don't subscribe to the sentiments in that quote either, so I can definitely see why it would make people salty. I feel where you are coming from on the quote, I'm not discounting that at all.  I just wish we could come at each other a little better sometimes that's all.  Peace to you bro.

I agree....how about this, since we are all lawyers or lawyers to be, why dont we act like it and express ourselves in a nonadverserial way???  Peace and love, Peace and love to everyone.

Hey, what happened to the Howard and HBCU line of posts????? It is gone..someone got caught up in their feelings.

Not sure what that was all about. That was a good thread. I had some good post in there with stats on HBCU grads and radical stuff about integration. I think I won that debate. ::)



Well, I will give it to you.......ALL HAIL HBCU!!!!!!!!!

Hey, I responded to you lawprofesor but it was deleted. Good luck. Even if you misinterpreted my posts. I am impressed with how respectful you are and how you seem to take a step back and analyze people's posts. Good luck.

And faith2005, as someone who has met you. I don't for one second believe you "hate yourself". You are an incredibly intelligent and strong black person. Just from our interactions in person and online, I can tell that you have so much you want to contribute to our community.
See, and I had responded and when I hit post, it said this topic has been deleted or something.   It is like waking up and the earth being gone.  ;D  I saw your response, and in a nutshell I said, I wish you had responded like that from the beginning because that response I dont think anyone would have had a problem with...it was thoughtful and precise and very intelligently written and explained what you really where trying to say.  I am here to bring together and not to divide.  I just want luv and respect.  Good luck to you too, I wish you nothing but the best.  Well, all that interpretation comes from law school.  ;)  Hey, if anyone wishes to have any information about becoming a law professor, just hit me up and I will be more than willing to break you off some knowledge on that.  It is also important to think about that while you are still in law school because what you do there does have an impact on your getting a job in certain areas once you get out.  Hey blaqueangel, I with you nothing but greatness in everything that you do and always continue giving back to your people.....that is the only way we are going to improve as a people.

Bump for my unreads cause I missed all of this.  It's too much to go back and read, but who said this?: "i am concerned about rankings, because i recognize that it makes a difference to how white folks perceive me and listen to me."



bp--that was me. its all good. i didn't realize that it would cause so much controversy, but hey, thats the way i feel. its based on my experiences.

Hey Faith, I feel you, but here is where I think your one flaw is with that theory.  White people are not going to listen to you anyway, even if you went to a prestigious institution.  They might listen to you after you have proven yourself, but usually you have to prove yourself over and over.  But it is cool.  I dont think your saying caused a controversy, just gave something for discussion.  Discussion is always good.  I dont have any personal anger toward you.  In my heart, I feel nothing but luv. :-*

my perception that you thought black people graduating from ivy league schools didn't contribute was taken from the statement "They didn't do it by graduating from the IVY. They didn't get the white man to listen to them by graduating from the IVY." I was not really in this discussion or discussion board to come at any person in a way that is super confrontational, because that is just not who i am. i will be the first to admit that all black people have serious problems with self hatred and self acceptance. i think about those types of issues daily and i think that accepting the damage that white supremacy and colonization has done to us is the first step in beginning to take back the legacy of african people all over the world. i am one of those people who is planning to go into public interest/human rights law and i've been committed to this type of work in hs, college and today as well. because this is anonymous, you don't know me, and neither do most of the people on this board, so i really don't know why anyone would take the time to discuss my opinions on the way i pursue my education on their free time. its all good though. its all love in the end for me. my opinion on the issue of social change is that it comes from the bottom up, not from the top down, so the people are the ones that change situations, and they are the ones who made it possible for me to go to any school, anywhere. i guess i mean that my role in any of this is to use the gifts that i have, and they happen to be academic. there are others whose gifts are in organizing, and i see my role as helping to keep them out of jail, working, and helping to create self-sustaining institutions so that it will be possible for my children to have a path that allows them to avoid having to be apart of this sh** all together. and if thats what you're about, then more power to you.

Faith, I think you are on the proper path.  You are going to be giving back in your way and that is what it is all about.  I say Kudos to you.  Good luck with everything that you do and best of luck in your future plans as an attorney.
