What is so funny about this

What is so funny about this report is the fact that there are "Black Colleges" all over this country, where the population is primarily if not totally black. Is anyone trying to change this? When someone applies to college, they do it based on several different aspects. Some apply to colleges that have prestigious reputations. Some apply to colleges because their friends or boyfreind/girlfriend has applied to the same school. This station interviewed several students when they were coming back, and the proximity to the beach was a big draw. Some schools are more specialized in their curriculum and some offer more opportunities for financial assistance. Some students just want to stick close to home, and so they apply locally. If UNCW has specific programs that would attract minorities to the school, then they would be worth advertising. I just don't think it is a big enough issue to assign someone to a paid position to attract minorities to the school. Perhaps there is some sort of Federal Money to be paid to schools based on their minority populations that no one is telling us about?
