In the Mars Challenge, I noted that the Bush and Obama administrations had spent $323 million dollars in 2008, $323 million dollars in 2009, and $323 million dollars in 2010 on “strengthening historically black colleges and universities.”
$350 million dollars was requested from Congress in 2011 and another $350 million dollars was requested in 2012 to “strengthen” HBCUs. This doesn’t include the $73 million that is requested annually to “strengthen” graduate programs at HBCUs.
It’s always good to know your tax dollars have been invested so wisely by the federal government:
Note: I believe this is why we need an even bigger government with higher taxes to redouble our effort to strengthen HBCUs.
