You ever noticed that the people asking the question, is getting a college degree worth the price are the people who have multiple college degrees sitting in beautiful television studios?
Some even try to sell the idea that it is elitist to get a college education. The strategy is to dissuade marginalized communities from getting an undergraduate degree, much less a graduate degree.
The cost of a four-year college education is already through the roof. If you listen to politicians talk about this issue, you would think that the government is powerless about doing something about it, at least at state colleges.
If you make the fees too much for the average family struggling to get by, the kid may not be able to get into college unless he can navigate the web of other ways available to low-income families.
We live in a capitalist system; I say ignore the cost and get the education, worry about the cost after you get the degree.
A rising tide raises all boats, the elites who run the government wants things to remain as they are. They Love to talk about; “our way of life.”
The unfortunate reality is that their way of life means us on the ground, their knees on our necks; we will not have that anymore.
They know they cannot keep Blacks out of colleges anymore, but they darn sure can try to discourage us through higher college tuition costs and their campaign to dissuade us.…you ever hear them trying to tell us that homeownership is not all it’s propped up to be?
Anyway, back to the education thing, here is where I am going with this; most of us saw the video of Georgia State Police acting like the Nazi Gestapo they truly are when they arrested Rep. Park Cannon on March 25 after she knocked on the door to Gov. Brian Kemp’s office while he was speaking about the voter suppression bill the Nazi Republican clowns in that legislature passed.
Rep. Park Cannon, a Democrat from Atlanta, was arrested March 25 after she knocked on the door to Republican Gov. Brian Kemp’s office while he was on live television speaking about the voting bill he had just signed into law. Police charged her with obstruction of law enforcement and disruption of the General Assembly. She was released from jail later that evening.
Representative Cannon politely knocked on a door.
What the Gestapo never bothered to think about as they were arresting Rep. Cannon and thinking of piling on bogus felony charges as they are wont to do, is that the person making the prosecuting decision would be another educated black woman.
“After reviewing all of the evidence, I have decided to close this matter,” Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis said in an emailed statement. “It will not be presented to a grand jury for consideration of indictment, and it is now closed.”
Before we go any further, let me show you the educated black queen who got to make that decision; here is District Attorney Fanni Willis.

Education is power; your enemies are counting on your continued failure to take advantage of the power within you. They hope you will continue to think that District Attorney Fanni Willis’s power positions are only for whites.
Rest assured, if a white male occupied ms. Willis’ office, Representative Cannon, would be defending herself from the trumped-up bogus charges the disgusting lying Gestapo concocted.
Now that you can see the direct benefits of getting an education, I hope for the love of God that you will continue to stay alert and pay attention to what is happening in your life in [your] country.
Yes, it is as much yours as it is theirs, if not more so.
These disgusting traitors attacked their own country on behalf of a wannabe dictator.
Much of what they have been doing in the dark is now out in the light; the prisons are filled with Blacks, many of whom committed crimes that warranted their incarceration. Many are there innocently as we have seen the Gestapo arrested a political representative for knocking on a door, then attaching trumped-up felony charges to her.
Ask yourselves, how many innocent people do they put in jail daily, using bogus charges like the ones attached to Rep. Cannon?
It is for those reasons that I, for one, say DEFUND THE POLICE. There are Democrats out there talking about not using the term ‘defund the police’ because it stirs up conservatives.
Who gives a rat’s ass about stirring up those despicable deplorable[sic] whose oxygen is hatred?
Why would I care about the feelings of such hate-filled people?
Was that love they showed to the police on January 6th, 2021? I don’t think so. Their faux support for police is based solely on the fact that police continue to abuse the people they hate.
So please spare me the caution and carefulness about their feelings, huge chunks of each of the over 18,000 police department’s budget should be cut away, and those funds used to build up marginalized communities, including college education for the poor.
Close the for-profit prisons; when people are educated and have something to live for, they are far less likely to engage in criminality.
DEFUND THE POLICE NOW.
