    Brandon Brice at The Washington Times writes about the changes and questions the Obama Administration’s commitment to HBCUs:
    Recently, the National Association for Equal Opportunity in Higher Education, the United Negro College Fund, the Thurgood Marshall College Fund and other HBCU advocates asked that President Obama and congressional leaders persuade the House and Senate to reconsider their position on PLUS loans reform, specifically focusing on the Higher Education Act. This legislation lays out direct guidelines for the distribution of student aid. Congress could choose to allow students loan eligibility despite past credit history. If Congress does nothing, then this legislation will have a drastic effect on black student applicants and the future economic sustainability of historically Black colleges.

    Anyone questioning the president's commitment to HBCUs (or anything else HB) is living under a rock. Or on a cloud. The president has no commitment to HBCUs. The president is an anti-African racist. He's gone out of his way to prove that.

    Too many of our folks have let him get away with sh*t he shouldn't have, true enough. But nobody has a hand up his a**. He's working against African American and other African interests because he wants to. Nobody's makin him do that s**t.

    I'm glad more folks seem to be startin to see that the president has no inner Malcolm just waiting to come out 'after the reelection.' This president is no Min. Malcolm. He's Thomas Dunwitty.

    @Alarm Clock, Maybe. According to Chancellor Williams, he's more like Alexandre Petion:



    ~ Chancellor Williams on the role of mixed Africans in the occupation of the Mossi States and in global African politics historically, The Destruction of Black Civilization, pp. 218 and 298

    Great book from a legendary scholar. The Destruction of Black Civilization should be standard reading material in every black household.

    I don't know why past credit history matters to them. The way plus loans are designed you can not default on them. If someone goes into bankruptcy plus loans can't be included in the debt forgiveness.

    Personally the government shouldn't be in the school loan business anyway. It's a money maker to them. Anyone to believes that the government got into it to "help" people just isn't paying attention. It's a cash cow and they wanted a part of it.

    Same with the healthcare law. Insurance companies makes millions and the government wanted some.

    The vast majority of politicians are crooks.
