Africa and African Americans are not waiting on handouts just because they are not raping kidnapping killing every one that come in their way like white people did and continue to do does not mean they are just sitting around. As a matter of fact white people ruined every civilization they came across if they would have stayed in Europe the world would be a better place.

Instead of dissecting and forensically examining the future earning value and potential of the degrees that black women are pursuing and obtaining, I say let's congratulate, support and encourage them further in their educational endeavors. We as black people desperately need to establish a cultural tradition that values educational pursuits and revere those who do so as we do our athletes and entertainers. A theoretical understanding and mastering of one's discipline expedites the learning curb and better prepares us for when we enter the Darwinian empirical world........so Kudos and I hope the contagion spreads!

Addendum: And though I am a huge proponent and advocate of formal education, do not let your having one separate you from the wisdom that reposes itself in those who were educated, not in the brick and mortal walls of a university, but instead received their degrees in the school of life.

Knowledge and the intelligent application of it are the most effective ways of advancing (in) society. An educated individual is more beneficial to his/her community when the education is selflessly used to advance the community. The greatness of people like Coretta Scot King, MLK and Mary McCloud Bethune is that they used their education to advance their people.

Today's world calls for an even greater thrust than just social activism. It calls for the sensible use of wealth not only to benefit oneself, but also to benefit the whole community directly or indirectly. This is just commonsense, and one does not need to be formally educated to the nth degree to be a player. Malcolm X is a great example of the triumph of commonsense.

Unlike other wealthy and/or educated people of other ethnicities, we tend to live on our 'narrow little islands'. We embarrass and isolate ourselves when we complain bitterly that a store attendant refused to sell us an extremely high-end item. The fact is that if we are wealthy enough, we could be selling those things in our chain of high-end stores. The same goes for hair dressing salons, the selling of hair pieces and other products females believe they need to beautify themselves. Tens of billions of dollars are drained from the Black community because of the failure of education to help advance us in a big way.

And African Studies/Gender Studies don't count.

Universities had to create those departments so blacks could get a college degree. They sure as hell aren't going to be engineers or physicists.

LMAO at loser Black guys upset that Black women are enrolled in college. I was ENROLLED in University, and then I graduated, you [email protected] That's how it works. If you'd been to college at all, then you would've known that.

And my degree isn't building up my community. I believe in gender roles, so I respect men who respect their culture. I don't see that in African American males. My boyfriend is Latino, and if we have kids then they'll follow his culture, speak Spanish and go to college helping mainly the Hispanic and then Black communities together. I would not feel satisfied helping the Black community because I know Black men are incapable of doing it, so I'd feel weird trying as a female. That isn't our job. MEN are supposed to be the ones building their people and community up more.

Great news. I don't see why this is a bad thing.

That being said, education doesn't always equal success. But it sure beats having multiple kids out of wedlock. Maybe this increase in enrolment will start the reversal of the problems of oow kids and increase two parent homes.

Well, tell Black men to start doing more good things for the Black community, instead, of worrying about self.
That's what I mean. As a woman, it is not my job to go out and try desperately to pull my people up alone. If I saw and noticed more Black American men out there starting organizations to help Black children, or those with money sticking with Black women more often just for the sake of keeping money within our community, then I would feel differently. Otherwise, that's not my job. That's not any Black woman's job, unless she already has kids, but this article said Black girls age 18 - 24, so many of them are childless. They are a different kind of group now.
