Black community must remember to value education, says Erika D. Smith

As a black woman, every once in a while I read something that makes me hang my head in shame and ball my fists in anger.

Most of the threads get co-opted by trolls. They claim they can't stand Blacks but they won't leave us alone. I notice this is especially true with White wannabes.
Anyway, in about a month or so will be my daughter's last year of high school and then she'll off to college. I have really been debating whether it is better to do two years in community college, and then transfer to university, or just go straight to 4 year university?
Can save money that way, since she won't qualify for any athletic or needs-based scholarships. I thought they had scholarships for students with good grades, but everywhere I check, it seems to be means-tested.
Congratulations! And best wishes for your daughter success. An intelligent, educated sister is an awesome presence. And whatever route she takes---Community college first or direct to the four year university---I hope she treats her education as more than a ticket to a great job or profession. I hope she seizes upon it for the possibilities of great intellectual and cultural development.
Again, caongrats and Best Wishes!
