Rapper and entrepreneur David Banner told the trio that black students should attend historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).

On Sunday, the businessman and his production company A Banner Vision, together with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF), hosted the Thurgood Marshall College Fund's RISE concert. The virtual concert with stars was held to raise funds for the TMCF. Banner recently sat down and had a discussion with theGrio to cover the event, explaining why he believes black students should only go to black schools and why inclusion is overrated.

"Books are books," says Banner. “We want white culture and white people because we think white people are better, and that's not the truth. We are the oldest people on this planet. So how can we look to others for education? It's not a school thing, it's a mental thing. "

"We're always fighting for inclusion. Why do you want to be included where nobody wants you? That's silly," he says.

The event, which practically aired last night, was hosted by Banner who was also attending an HBCU.
