Wendy Williams Boycott Called After Remarks About Historically Black Colleges Hits A Nerve

Is Wendy Williams taking tips from the Stacey Dash playbook? After some recent comments that Wendy made about historically black colleges and universities, the daytime talk show host has upset a lot of fans. After getting dragged on Twitter for what she said, Wendy came back to explain herself and clarify her comments on HBCUs, but that has not stopped many from boycotting Wendy Williams and her show.

"On the other hand, I would be really offended if there was a school that was known as a historically white college. We have historically black colleges. What if there was the National Organization for White People, only? There's the NAACP."

Well, Roland Martin was quick to give the daytime talk show host a lesson much the way he schooled Snoop Dogg after his comments about why he thought a Roots remake was a bad idea. The Root reported on Martin's response to Wendy Williams, and it was epic.

Martin explained the history behind the formation of the NAACP and the fact that white people have always been a part of it. He also spoke of the need for black colleges and universities and the federal designation given to them according to News One.

"The best I can say as a regular woman observing the world like we all are, is it starts in the four walls we call home. If we can teach our children better and educate ourselves more as adults to the multitude of racists around the world as well as religious groups, then we'd all be better as a society," Wendy said. "For the record, no I am not a Stacey Dash and for the record, I am a very mighty, proud Black woman. Hopefully, you got what I said and will not screw up my words like you always do, and read me for filth on the worldwide web."
