Two civil rights groups have sued Georgia in federal court over the state's treatment of public historically black colleges, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. The suit charges that the state discriminates against Albany State, Fort Valley State and Savannah State Universities by refusing to give them adequate financing or the prestigious research and graduate programs found at the top predominantly white universities. Officials of the University System of Georgia said that they had not seen the suit and that they do not comment on litigation. But a spokesman told the Journal-Constitution that many factors go into budget allocations, including institutional missions and performance measures.
