I agree, but for free? A full ride is a privilege, it shouldn't be, but at this point and time it is. At the very least people without felonies should take priority over those without. Imagine someone killing your family member as a teen and then finding out they received a full ride to college, I'd be sick.
Whenever I hear my friends who went to HBCUs talk about they always struggle when the topic of how classist alot of the things that happen on the campuses are. There's alot of respectability politics shit that happens on hbcu campuses and alot of those students are only their cuz their parents made them go. They'd prefer to be at a PWI
