    Please don't support this. HBCUs have been financially underfunded and handicapped throughout history. Because of the socioeconomic backgrounds many HBCU students face, in addition to the socioeconomic status of many alumni, HBCUs have a much more difficult time securing donations, growing endowments, and are thus faced difficult competitive factors compared with other institutions. Specifically for Capital-intensive projects. Imagine if your alumni were first legally, then socially prevented from becoming part of the the top earning Americans...it'd be pretty hard to match the donations of a much larger university based not just in number of donations, but on size of private donations and gifts from individual alumnae/families
