To say HBCUs were designed in the spirit of “school choice” is like arguing Black folks must’ve been tired of the humidity, thus The Great Migration was spawned. And DeVos knows that. Her main goal was to further push the privatization of schools.
The cartoonist doesn’t even see that to compare a Black child’s burden to an adult, well-off White woman’s issue is to deny not only her full humanity, but the fact that she is a child.
