Virginia’s only black governor accused fellow Democrats of taking the African American vote for granted, even as they neglect historically black colleges and tell parents to stay out of their children’s classrooms.
“I’ve been talking with the presidents of all of those universities,” Wilder, 90, told the Washington Examiner from his home in Richmond. “They’re not happy with what’s going on. And many of them are limited in terms of expressing themselves because they don’t want to be punished.”
“And yet without historical black colleges and universities, many of us would never have had an education, and you’re talking to one of them now,” he said.
