The jobs offered are in the military. The money promised, or found to send a military individual to school, is the same money that should be used for citizens here in America. America is far behind in the education arena. India and parts of Europe place more into growing the technical expertise of its citizens. I think in general blacks are tired of being sent to war, treated like second class citizens and it's about time.
