    Only to snowflakes that look for offensive verbiage when none is intended.

    Is this thread about meaningful exchange or trolling for arguments?

    The media has over-reached here to get at Trump and DeVoss and it's pathetically obvious.

    It would be like if yesterday Trump said "Blacks in America have the best chance at economic success than Blacks anywhere else in the world." The media, the following day, would report that "Trump praises the slave trade of early America, says it was a great thing."

    Pathetic.

    IMO it is an all out WAR against Pres. Trump & the GOP (on his side).

    I was under the impression that the HBCUs were started because black students had no options. They were not allowed in white colleges or universities due to segregation laws, and had no option. I could be wrong about that, but someone will straighten me out if I am. If that is true, then to call it a "choice" is just plain silly, and to try to equate it to school choice today is ludicrous.

    bang yes due in large part to segregation many blacks had no options, which is what the comment she made pointed out. That the creation of the colleges gave them a choice, it opened a new door. My Professor in college was black and taught US history as well as Theology. He used and showed how the creation of these institutions gave blacks choices and options not available to them otherwise. No real difference than what she has stated, but as I said before you can find offense in any comment if you look for it even when the commenter had no intention to offend.

    The game of Got You, is as old as politics and this is just another example of such, same with Sessions, heck look at how the left went nuts over a photo of Conway. Perceived indignation and made up bluster of wrong doing!

    The left don't like her because she is a supporter of choice in education, this is a threat to public union jobs in their mind! That is it! Nothing more!

    You're correct. The idea that they are the result of choice- as opposed to the result of segregation and racism - is absurd.
