Blacks & Title IX

It’s not just white guys hurt by feminists:

A study released today by the College Sports Council shows that, due to their student gender ratio approaching 2-1 female to male, nearly all of the nation’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) are out of compliance with Title IX’s proportionality standard.  According to the study:

  • 72 of the nation’s 74 HBCUs that are co-educational and have athletic programs were out of compliance with the strict proportionality standard.
  • 29 of the schools out of compliance would have received an “F” from the Women’s Sports Foundation in their latest report card on gender equity in college athletics.
  • 43 schools, though they didn’t get an “F”, are still vulnerable to lengthy and expensive litigation.
  • Only 2 schools (Allen University, Morris College) were in compliance.
