This probably won’t end well. Twitter user @Italia_calino shared the image above on Tuesday morning, depicting sidewalks in Howard University’s Yard with the spray-painted message “Welcome to the Trump Plantation. Overseer: Wayne A. I. Frederick.”
That message was not the only one marked on school premises, with others claiming that Frederick, the university’s president, doesn’t “care about black people” and is “coonin’ for Howard.”
Students and alumni at Howard have expressed concern over Frederick’s relationship with the new administration, and the administration’s own interest in HBCUs, particularly Howard, given alum Omarosa Manigault’s role in the administration.
