There is no way an average high school graduate earns more than a black college graduate

"But if black people did all those things and ignored the fact that a black college graduate is more likely than a white high school grad to be unemployed, and on average earns less than one;"

Having not even considered researching the topic, I have no choice but to call bullshit on this claim.

He's probably talking career earnings, assuming the black college grad will be shot by an officer before he can reach full potential.

I don’t want to sound racist, but have you looked at NBA salaries?

i think the wage disparity controlling for education is bad enough on it's own without his somewhat dubious claim.

Can we agree going to college is a terrible decision if you don't know what you want to do and can't pay for it?

Let’s see if American colleges are smart enough to adapt to the new normal.

My alma mater just dropped tuition by like a third. I assume we were losing enrollees to the school across the street, with their new celebrity President. Enrollment is up since I was there 20 years ago, but it's like 1500 now vs 1000 when I was there, and I think a lot of it is the nursing school and MBA program.

:lol:


they're kind of locked into long term debt after two decades of creating four year country clubs. it's not like the non tenured profs are getting paid well so the only way to lower costs are to privatize certain functions, cut tenured profs, or cut research.

in any case it will be interesting to watch academia react to real world economic pressure and make them make hard choices.
