there's really no excuse. Most of the programs are implemented by the schools themselves, not the state or a higher authority, so logical reasoning would dictate that the school system can't be THAT racist to begin with.
But if they are finding that the registrar offices are discriminating, why don't they simply find out who or what is messing up, instead of simply half-stepping the problem? Therefore claiming this will end the evils is farfetched.
Simply, I think folks are so hell-bent on keeping this program alive is just to get a one-up on whitey. It's more symbolic than substance.
