"Once Watkins graduated with honors from Tennessee State University, an HBCU, the “inspiration” he drew from being at King’s side propelled him to integrate Vanderbilt. But it didn’t take long for him to conclude that integration didn’t always mean he would be welcomed. Vivid is Watkins’ memory of the day White medical school classmates “dumped feces” on his face from their fourth-floor dorm window as he walked out of his first-floor room; or the times he tramped across the railroad tracks to get back to the Tennessee State University campus where he found solace and a welcome place to eat."

Dr. Carl Hart was supposed to be an athlete. Basketball was going to be his ticket and the NBA his reward.

Here is a story from another one of the University of California's campuses.


UCLA Has More NCAA Championships Than Black Male Freshmen
Posted: 11/08/2013 5:06 pm EST  |  Updated: 11/08/2013 5:07 pm EST

The black students at University of California, Los Angeles, sent a strong message about diversity at their school. Namely, the fact that there isn't much when it comes to African-American males, a troubling fact for one of the state's most elite institutions.

A group of students, led by Sy Stokes, posted a video voicing their concerns about the number of black students on campus, and their message is hard to ignore. Stokes, a third-year Afro-American studies student who identifies as black, Cherokee and Chinese, recites a spoken word poem in the video, citing blaring statistics about the university's diversity issue.

According to the school's enrollment statistics, African-Americans make up 3.8 percent of the student population. In the video, Stokes points out that black males make up 3.3 percent of the male student population, and that 65 percent of those black males are undergraduate athletes. Of the incoming men in the freshmen class, only 1.9 percent of them were black.

Thanks for sharing.

I know a lot of blacks are turning down Ivy league schools to go to Xavier in new orleans, because of their high % of getting blacks into medical school.
