no....but dropping out of high school was bad behavior.
and then becoming a leach on society for the individuals own bad choices is bad behavior, receiving a full ride plus expenses college education for bad behavior, when a straight A student of a 50K income family will get ZERO assistance except interest rate.
and then laughing about it; and throwing it in the face of someone who is forced to fund the programs annually, is also bad behavior.
you may want to read, then apply logic prior to posting a reply.
if you disagree.....stay hidden.
Not all scholarships are paid for by you. In fact, if it was a full-ride, odds are that only a small part came from the government.

People have historically dropped out of high school for many reasons--family, financial, military. Hard to accept a blanket statement that all were bad behavers.

You seem to have difficulty in financial assistance being based on financial need--although it is hard to understand why. But, it is also contingent on being accepted to a college and matriculating.

Since you are fond of portraying yourself as one of the wealthy, why don't you and your friends get together to start a college fund for some of the deserving over the $50,000 limit? The folks at the Columbus Foundation will be very happy to set up a fund for you, and you can attach darned near any rules you want. I'm certain that donations are tax deductible, so maybe you can use it to balance out what you believe to by your over-contribution to tax supported financial aid.

Do you ever really know what you are talking about. A good amount of financial assistance is given to people that neither are accepted to a college since they attend schools that take anybody and everybody, nor is it contingent on matriculating.

And im sure CPS has such an abysmal rate of graduation because those goods kids are dropping out to enroll in the military!

You get Stafford loans for freshman year of 5500, sophomore at 6500, junior at 7500, senior at 8500. If my son was not getting Athletic and Academic along with the Stafford loans he could not afford college because we make around 75k a year. Thanks to Obamacare I now have extra costs for medical which takes money away from tuition. But as long as the freeloaders can get into college for free it is all good right?

Robert--nobody gets into college for free--at least as far as government support is concerned. Unless tuition is less than the amount afforded by Pell Grants. Loans are something else again and they tend to be widely available. And depending on the institution there may be other sources of support--alumni funds, bequests, all kind of things.

I'm not defending what is available as ideal. We have too many kids coming out of college owing way too much. But, unless and until we decide to dedicate more resources to support of college-going (or other post-secondary education), it makes sense to me to prioritize to those who have least resources from home/family--which is exactly what is done.

What is your proposal?

Of course facts are racist. Your conclusions are.

So, again, explain why you claim Latifah is racist but you aren't?

Aren't her conclusions drawn from facts? What words of hers are racist? I typically don't read her posts.

Black folks have disproportional negative issues and outcomes when it comes to conducting themselves properly in society.
Naturally, to you and them, it's all whitey's fault.

Blacks are seven times as likely as people of other races to commit murder, the New Century Foundation found in a 2005 study. They are three times as likely to use a gun while committing a crime of violence.

Another lazy ass excuse from you. You're the one who said you don't read her posts. Therefore, my word is as good as hers until you peruse her posts.
