Protecting students from tuition rate hikes, establishing a scholarship plan and reducing student fees in the UNC System is hateful, you guys.
SB 873 is just extremist! It’s hateful! It’s racist!
Even though this bill is about the UNC system specifically, Moron Monday says it’s an attack on HBCU’s (Historically Black Colleges and Universities).
The NC NAACP aka Moral Monday’s press release:

North Carolina NAACP & North Carolina NAACP Youth & College Division Hold a Press Conference
Rejecting the Policies of Hate in S.B. 873
DURHAM, NC — Join Us on Tuesday May 31st, at the People’s House Press Room on Jones Street. We are grateful for Rep. Larry Hall for reserving the North Carolina General Assembly Press Room.
“This bill is classic underdevelopment. Once again the extremists use a false label to cover up the truth. This bill is not about making college more affordable,” said Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, NC NAACP President. “Instead it is an attack on HBCUs and minority universities that will drain millions of dollars from them with no replacement revenue. Like the extremists’ voucher and voter suppression schemes, this is just another scheme to further the extremist agenda.” “This Bill attacks People of Color directly,” Dr. Barber said. “The goal is clear. Disperse these centers of cultural, intellectual and political power for our small — but rapidly growing –leadership cadre. Disrupt the mission of HBCU’s by bankrupting them.
“The Youth and College Division will organize all summer long,” said Tyler Swanson, Field Secretary of the Division, “to stop the extremists’ new round of Hate Bills spewing out of our People’s House.” The North Carolina NAACP, North Carolina NAACP Youth & College Division and the Forward Together Moral Movement will Conduct News Conference at 11am at The North Carolina General Assembly Press Room
WHO: The NC NAACP, NC NAACP Youth & College Division, and the Forward Together Moral Movement.
