After an epic dragging by Black Twitter, Wendy now says her comments about HBCU’s were misinterpreted.
On Thursday, Williams attempted to clarify her original comments, saying she has family members who are HBCU grads, then, doubling down on her insinuation that a historically Black college is as racist as the idea of a “historically white college.”
“On yesterday’s show a lot of you all misinterpreted some of the things I was saying regarding Black schools being Black,” she said. “I will clarify again…be very clear, I find nothing wrong with historically Black colleges.
“My father graduated from Lincoln, which is a Black college. My brother graduated from Virginia State. But my thought in my mind and what I said to you is how would I feel if I were applying to colleges that were historically white and that was part of the marquee of selling me to apply to the school.
