For many HBCU alumni, students and fans, the unexpected result of the election is a wake-up call.

With Donald Trump’s stunning upset in the 2016 presidential election, commenters took to social media to share their thoughts and opinions.

Howard University’s Greg Carr, the Chair of the Department of Afro-American Studies, summed up Trump’s win over Hillary Clinton in one particular tweet.

“Maybe now more American Negroes will turn off the reality TV, store the video games, connect with each other, study & build for our future,” Carr said in another tweet.

Carr added:

This isn’t a setback. It’s a revelation. A setback presumes a common agenda. Time to finally develop one again. This time till it’s done.
