Ralph Jones Jr., a brilliant 16-year-old who had his pick of colleges and chose Florida A&M University, chatted with The Root about why he went with a historically black school over an Ivy League, and the negative attention he’s getting for his decision.
This warms my heart. Shoutout to all the current students and alum of HBCU’s everywhere!
Good for him! Stick with where you will receive a quality education and get the support that you need!
Controversy whatever, he realized he’d have a better college experience and therefore get a better education.
Its controversy when he picks an hbcu and its controversy when black kids get into ivy leagues.
idk why he chose FAMU out of all the HBCUs but good for him.
Hey so I already have around 300 physical books in my apartment (and about the same number in digital form) I haven’t read yet, not to mention that I don’t have the extra $, but I’m pretty sure you all can handle the flailing about this in my stead.
