Yes, it's happening
again. Every few months someone makes a "controversial" statement about an HBCU or PWI that divides #BlackTwitter for hours or
days on end. This time around, the situation was a little more complex. In January @sleepymateo tweeted a picture of him and his friends at their PWI. On Saturday, the picture came across @ThePoshLife_'s timeline, which then prompted her to start a thread on how black students at PWIs "appropriate HBCU culture."

The tweet that prompted the thread:

Others simply want peace.

Many didn't understand the logic behind the thread.

And a handful defended the thread (kind of).

Truthfully, nobody really knew what was going on. After @ThePoshLife_'s mentions started blowing up, she wrote a blog on Tumblr titled, Dear “My PWI has a lot of black kids so I basically go to an HBCU” Twitter, explaining her reasoning. Tumblr might just be the playground for the next wave of the divide

What do you think? Do we need to put this debate to bed once and for all?
