If there are all-black schools, should there be all-white schools?

Asked by: Shines
  • You talk about equality...

    If there are all black or gay or women or male or Latino colleges then there should be all white schools. Its racist to not let all white schools. This is crazy that we can allow all-black schools but if there is an all white school then that is racist. It doesn't make sense that we can do this. I'm not saying make white people go to white schools or black to black. I'm just saying give people the option.

  • America is Free

    White people should have all white schools, just like Black people have all blacks at their schools, Spanish for Mexicans as well. There would be
    "controversy" over this from black and Mexican people. The reason for that is cause they feel like they are missing out on something. Or they are sick of their own race. All race's are some what Racist in their own ways. America is doing what "people thought couldn't be done. Instead we should be focused on making a better way of living for us all. Focus on making ways to live on other planets to make our population stronger. By Arnold Cruz out of Victorville, California

  • Yes, of course!

    It's completely unfair and quite racist to allow black people to establish institutions solely for the benefit of the black race, but deny white people the right to establish institutions for the benefit of the white race. No one should be granted special privileges because of race. Laws barring certain people from doing the same thing as other people because of their race are blatantly discriminatory. Any rational person can see this.

  • Im just tired of it all:(

    I am tired of hearing about it every single day I hate the school I go to (all black school) but that's the only high school I am zoned to and I just want to be around good kids that I can actually like being around, please do something about this. Thx:)

  • Tired of the racism

    It's ok too have all black schools,but when it's a white school it's considered racism,so tired of the black community complaining about their race and their problems,we all have have problems,stop using race for our destruction of our country,stop using ur ignorance for an excuse too destroy our country,grow the fuck up

  • Ita so to say that having an all white school is racist while there is all black schools like come on people brain

    We should be allowed to have all white schools, o get it people you think all whited are racist but you know what first of all that's racist, and second of all we got the idea of slavery from black people... {~`~} now keep telling me that white people are so bad and racist and need to be stopped... Black lives matter, white lives matter, all lives matter so quit saying everything is flipping racist and brain up.

  • Why not all white colleges?

    I think ALL lives matter as well as ALL should be able to go to school where they choose!!!! If you want racism to stop,then quit whining about all the poor black people are getting a raw deal!!! ALL races are having a hard time getting thou life. Instead of pointing fingers extend our hands as AMERICANS and pull together. Al Sharp ton the reverend who hasn't paid his taxes as ALL the peoples have to and claims to be a man of God, yet preaches hate. A joke and a slap in the face of other hard working black preachers who are trying to end this crap. Dr King wanted ALL races to love and live together not one be better than the other. And we forget the Native Americans who still are prisoners of war in their own country. 100 million Native Americans have died since the discovery of this country. And as far as slavery do your research. The first actual slave owner to go to court in the original 13 colonies and win another black man as a slave was BLACK. Pull together as one people and the racism will stop. As far as the white only groups, avoid them as you would try to avoid a plague. They are ignorant and not only embarass other whites but all races.

  • There should be no color specified school period.

    I don't think there should be certain schools for certain races, however since there are black only schools it only seems fair that there should be white only, and mexican only and so forth. It's segregation. And I can almost assure you that if there were white schools they would be shut down instantly for "racism"

  • Its only fair

    Why shouldn't there be? Blacks can have all black schools, websites, and other stuff, whites should be able to as well. It only seems to be racist when the white does it, how come its not racist when a black does it? Its only fair to let us have an all white school.

  • Yes whites should have their own school too.

    I am white and grew up in a school that was predominantly black. I was called many derogatory names, told that my hair smelled like a wet dog when clearly it did not I was made to feel like I shouldn't be white I was made to feel that I should not be proud of who I am. I suffered an extreme identity crisis I thought at one point if I just were to act black I would be liked better but that still did not work there was nowhere for me to fit in the Mexicans stayed with the Mexicans the black stayed with the black The Filipinos with the Filipinos. The Whites were chalked up as weirdos gothics and smokers. The other whites like me we're also having an identity crisis and tried to act a race they were not because it was too shameful to be proud of being white. Hip-hop music is dominated by blacks and controls a lot of our young culture and in today's society most young kids think theyre black when they're not and blacks don't like that either. I actually had a black person tell me to stop trying to act black because I was not black but at the same time it's not OK to act white. So for the white people out there there's really no where to fit in a school that's dominated by minorities I think there should be a school for whites because the bullying made me want to drop out of school or commit suicide.

  • Not at all!

    Whites already control a mass part of our society. Yeah, we have a President who is half black but that doesn't mean we have overcome oppression. If he was 100% black I wonder if he would be in office. Blacks have suffered in ways white have for a long time. At one time we weren't allowed to go to school. Then when we were, the schools we attended were in worst condition then white schools and we received hand me down books and sat in classrooms that were less than adequate. Now, although the schools have gotten better, blacks still disproportionately have a lower achievement rate than white students due to being in schools that are still unequal in terms of education to many white schools. Besides, most Universities throughout the United States that are not one of the few historically black colleges contain a predominately white population anyway. We must not forget that Blacks have been oppressed since their forced arrival to this country. It is only right that they have something that is their own that is not controlled by white culture or instill the teachings of the anglo americans. Even television is overrun by predominately white culture. Can we have something without some white person being mad about? Maybe if slavery never happened, this wouldn't be a discussion

  • No Black Schools Either, And What Racism Really Is

    Segregating anyone, is a form of racism and should not be permitted by todays modern and (fairly) progressive society, it provides a basis on which to view other peoples culture, religion, and sexual preferences as a negative difference than your own. Segregated schools allows the most vile of thoughts to be permitted, and the lack of knowledge about other races, to manifest, and become a reality once the kids graduate and become apart of the workings of the "real world" IE culture exposure is one of the main reasons why many progressives are NOT racists, and without the exposure to other cultures, segregation will ALWAYS lead to racism.

    Racism-An INSTITUTIONALIZED political and socio-economic strategy used to suppress a specific faction of a population. Not to be confused with bigotry, racism only affects those not on the highest socio-economic scale ( in America: Blacks, Hispanics, Homosexuals etc), and allows them to be oppressed indefinitely under a predetermined set of laws( such as Black Codes), that are only changeable by means of direct action by the highest socio-economic class (whites).

  • If there are all-black schools, there should not be all-black schools.

    It appears that not being racist in America today is synonymous with being racist against whites. There are scholarships, schools, clubs, etc. That are exclusive to minorities. Businesses will pass up a more qualified white candidate simply because they have to meet their "minority quota". The special treatment of all races needs to disappear if we ever want to be truly equal.

  • No, race should be completely irrelevant

    Race should never be taken into account by any public institution. Race data should never be collected by the government and race should never be taken into account in any public policy. No institution that receives public funds should ever have any official or unofficial policy dedicated to the advancement or suppression of any racial or ethnic group. The students of any particular school should be viewed and judged as individual human beings only and never as members of a "race."

All black schools (or any other similar racial/sexual grouping) do not prohibit other white or non-white individuals from applying and getting accepted. They are [almost] always "historically black colleges" that were established to provide an environment free from racism as our country evolved into a more equal society. [Almost] anyone can apply and be accepted, but most prefer the diversity and name recognition of a more mainstream college or university. Our country and world has evolved tremendously in terms of racial equity.

After the abolition of slavery, the establishment of the right to vote for non-whites, then finally desegregation, one can only imagine how much setback in education, prosperity, and wealth was experienced. Black youngsters needed to be educated in order to be competitive in the workplace so, instead of waiting for the world to change, educators became proactive and created such schools for their young black citizens. If they had not, black Americans would most probably be fifty to 100 years behind in their socioeconomic status, as compared to whites, than they already are.

All white schools is a step in the wrong direction. Blacks are already working at a 200+ year disadvantage in socioeconomic opportunity. Reparations for slavery and racism are impossible, but we must do what is possible to create a more equitable integration of all the citizens, rather concocting more division on the way to national, and world, prosperity.
