A black employee at the University of Illinois at Chicago says his job was made a “living hell” due to taunts by co-workers.

Chuck Conner, 49, who is a mechanic at the institution, says he’s received a black Santa Claus and a rope in the form of a noose while working there. 

This HBCU is 90% white

You would think that most of a Historically Black Colleges and University’s (HBCUs) student population would mainly consist of African-American students.

But there are some HBCUs where blacks make up just a small amount of the student body population.

Bluefield State College is one of them.
