In that case I would just re-estimate the model with a variable
noncoll (a indicator variable for non-college degree) instead of
collgrad. Than the reported number by -logit- with the -or- option of
-black- will be the ratio of the odds when both black and white women
have a college degree. If this ratio is 1 than the odds are equal, and
this is already the null hypothesis of the test reported in the
regression output, so than you are done.

Hope this helps,
