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 said:
The wide use of "black" agents, usually Mulattoes, continued to be the white man's secret weapon in becoming masters of the black world. When the Blacks were on top they could pose as loyal members of the black race -- as many of them were in fact; or they could, having "white blood," ally themselves with the whites and serve their interests. . . . And that was why the Mulatto, or Creole George Ekern Ferguson from Sierra Leone, now playing the role of a loyal Black African, was able not only to reach the Mogho Naba without any trouble, but even to negotiate a treaty on behalf of the British, something that all the Europeans had been unable to do.

Chancellor Williams said:
The only reason for dealing with the role played by the Mulattoes in black history, for example, was to show how baffling and complex the problem is. For they were used not only to help disguise the most significant achievements of Blacks, but they were also effectively used to further enhance and perpetuate the already existing conflicts and divisions among them. Now they had just as much right to be classified as white as they did to be classified as black. But they found it expedient to operate in both worlds, exploiting the Blacks while serving the interests of the whites. There could never be any clear-cut judgment or defense against internal subversion along any color line, because in almost every black society it was possible to find many Mulattoes who were as loyal to the race as anyone could be, and, as well, pure Blacks who might be paid agents of the Arabs or Europeans. The state of Black Africa, then, was a state of perpetual fears, fears of being hunted down and attacked from without, fears of betrayals by unknown followers from within, fears of attacks by other migrating Blacks who were themselves fleeing from danger, fears of hunger, ever-mounting disease and of the alarming number of deaths. These fears of all kinds were a disease -- all producing an alarming source of mutual suspicions and distrust.

~ 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

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.
