A new report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that of the 2.9 million students who graduated from high school in 2014, about 2.0 million, or 68.4 percent, were enrolled in college in October 2014. This includes both full-time and part-time enrollments.

Among 2014 high school graduates, African Americans were more likely to enroll in college by October than their White peers. Nearly 71 percent of 2014 Black high school graduates had enrolled in college by October compared to 67.3 percent of Whites.

Of the 263,000 Black high school graduates in 2014 who were enrolled in college, 67,000, or 25.4 percent, were also employed. About 35.5 percent of new White high school graduates who enrolled in college in 2014 also had jobs.

The unemployment rate (those looking for work who couldn’t find it) for Black high school graduates who were enrolled in college was 30.1 percent. For Whites, new high school graduates who were enrolled in college had an unemployment rate of only 11.1 percent.

    Because they obviously get govt. grants and scholarships qualified white students can’t and no one wants to work at Starbucks with $200K in loans hanging over them after they get out and find minorities and foreigners have taken all the good jobs.

    • MikeofAges

      More likely, those not capable of attempting college work have a higher rate of non graduation than whites not capable of college. In statistic they call stuff like this selection bias or some such.

      • Weisheit77

        Boom. Also you can get accepted, get your FAFSA money and fail or drop out. You pocket a couple gran, at least, per semester.

    • TruthBeTold

      Maybe Whites are catching on that college isn’t a good investment.

      If they’re not going to college, what are they doing? Hopefully learning real-world, practical trades.

      • Jason Lewis

        Plumbers and welders make more than people with degrees in black or women’s studies.

        • The Worlds Scapegoat

          No they don’t, and even if they did, a welder still has to show up at work to get paid.

          … But I bet plumbers have to deal with less crap than white teachers at black only schools.

          .

          • Screamin_Ruffed_Grouse

            Maybe they don’t. Today. But I’d rather see my boys mastering practical trades such as those than acquiring degrees in useless social “science” fields (hard sciences are a different story). Better long term prospects.

          • Raymond Kidwell

            Most people in college go to get a good job. The people with degrees in art or something have rich parents or some full scholarship ride for being a minority. Or else people who couldn’t handle the real degree and just opted to get an arts degree instead of dropping out.

          • The Worlds Scapegoat

            It was different before the 1980’s. A regular person who was moderately intelligent and who worked hard could get ahead. That changed in the 1980’s.

      • wildfirexx

        Hmmm, but what percentage of Black students actually gradute from high school… compared to white students, and what percentage of them go onto finish their college term ? And…are they also lumping the Hispanic students in with the White students to get these statistical figures ?

      • Weisheit77

        I’m waiting for my favorite professor to show up and explain it. It’s a simple cost vs. benefit equation. The value of a college degree is steadily declining in earning potential while the cost of college is steadily rising. If you study the wrong degree, which is most these days, at a major university you’re asking to start working later in life at a job that didn’t require a university degree. Considering that most people don’t use college to become educated in the classical sense, it’s a lose-lose for a lot of people. You leave college ignorant, not the black meaning of the word, and deeply in debt.

        In my college town the trend had grown toward luxury apartments. Good luck with that one.

    • Illidan Stormragge

      Not the entire story. Blacks are much more likely to be in debt and have higher college debt than whites on average. There are also all kinds of colleges, for-profit and non-ranked ones, that take in anyone and have high minority enrollment. College is not for everyone and these blacks as well as whites have enrollment rates way too high. Many shouldn’t be going in to college, as for a good number of them complete waste of time.

      • John Smith

        I agree, but that is from the kind of for-profit, often not properly accredited colleges that Michael Brown was supposed to be attending (like ITT, etc.). They milk these double-digit IQ dindus for anything they can get from them in the way of grants and federally approved loans, and most are stuck because they were too stupid to finish the programs they started or can only get fast-food jobs afterward because they went into a worthless program of study that a moron is capable of completing, barely. This means high debt-loads and no way to pay it off.

    • Light from the East

      If American colleges get dominantly liberal, it may be not a bad news for whites not attending them, reducing the chance of being brainwashed by the propaganda. The only thing we care about is that whites need to learn the knowledge and technique to guarantee the survival as a whole. Maybe AR should start an educational institution.

      • Anglokraut

        Yes, but keep religion out of it–there are plenty of church-affiliated, politically-and-socially conservative schools out there. We need a non-religious option for people who just want to learn without the PC poison.

        • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

          Even the religious colleges are full of a different kind of poisonous liberalism. “We’re all the same, go help out Africa on a mission” type crap. It’s the same stuff they peddle in churches, which is definitely NOT what the Bible says.

          • Anglokraut

            Yes, exactly! That’s why I would love to see an accredited post-secondary institution that not only denounced that drivel, but also offered courses on how argue effectively against the P.C. bilge.

          • Katherine McChesney

            The Bible tells Christians “go spread the word” to unbelievers. It also means other countries. While I believe that Africa should be left to it’s own economic and political destruction I agree with missionary work to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            I would only support it if they sent doctors to sterilize them. I suppose I’m just sick of being forced to support them through taxes that go to the ones here, and overseas through foreign aid. All it does is enable them to create more blacks. So it’s especially galling to go to church and hear them crying for us to help them. What happened to the billions of dollars we’ve already sent??

          • Lion’s Mane

            It’s an endless trap. The more we give, the more they procreate. It’s called feeding a parasite. The “help” sent over there actually only increases the suffering in the long run.

          • Alexandra1973

            I’m not against sending missionaries to Africa. I’m against shipping the Africans here.

        • Light from the East

          I would like to know how many of you think it is the time for us to introduce a new belief system to replace all religions on Earth? And that may be the key for AR to be a big organization.

          • Anglokraut

            I’m an atheist; the only belief system I’d like to see in place is science and reason, and the stone-cold understanding that humans are not all equal. Some of them are major evolutionary dead ends.

          • Light from the East

            Based on reasoning, quantum mechanics and some real life examples around the world, I came up with a idea (a possible belief system) that our perception of space and time of our universe is merely superficial. Conscience exists before energy comes into material. There are several types of conscience and each one has its own perception and nature (not equal). Our dreams, a self-created realm without a clear rule of space and time (so some may predict things will happen in the real world, some may be just a exclusive experience in dream), are sophisticated collaboration between our bodies and our non-material consciences. And that will explain why most of creatures need sleep even it is more efficient to being awake all the time of your life. If AR wants to use my idea, I am willing to share.

          • ElComadreja

            Some are not even homo sapiens sapiens, truth be told.

          • Alexandra1973

            I’m a fundamentalist Christian and I don’t believe all humans are equal. We’re all sinners…some are just a lot worse than others!

          • Anglokraut

            You may believe you are a sinner who needs redemption through blood sacrifice. I believe in no such thing, nor do I believe it should be taught to children. But if we can put that aside to build a curriculum based on teaching students how to think, instead of what to think, we might just get along anyway.

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            What kind of church do you attend? Is it race-realist? I would go to a race-realist church in a second, but I’ve not found one yet outside of Appalachia, and they’re not as open about it as they used to be.

      • Who Me?

        “If American colleges get dominantly liberal…”
        What rock have you been living under for the past half century? They started getting liberal in the 60’s and have progressed steadily in that direction ever since. I’d say the transformation was just about complete by the 1990’s.

        • Light from the East

          At least in department of engineering and business of most colleges, political stance is generally neutral. Departments of humanities, social sciences, and laws obviously are extremely liberal.

    • Alexandra1973

      Yeah really. All a college education can guarantee you nowadays is massive debt.

    • Weisheit77

      Bingo, we have a winner here. I worked in academia until recently (low level), but it always cracked me up when an Asian MBA student would ask me why school is so expensive. I would take a deep breath and ask, “why am I explaining business to a business major?”

      The smart ones immediately understood my implications.

      • Illidan Stormragge

        School is expensive because professors are few and far between and students from all backgrounds, many with rich parents, are dime a dozen. Supply and demand. Europe has egalitarian free-for-all colleges but they limit who can attend based on tests and are also not known at all worldwide unlike so many US colleges. I knew this guy who studied from Cambridge and said the resources in Columbia University were much better.

        • Weisheit77

          I’m familiar with the German university system. It’s the same way.

    • carriewhite64

      For most white high school graduates, the decision to attend college involves the knowledge that they and their families will have to sacrifice, make housing arrangements, possibly borrow obscene amounts of money. Thus, the choice to attend college is a significant decision for white families of students. For black students it is the easiest decision in the world – wait for the money and go party for a few semesters.

        • evilsandmich

          Indeed it’s well put. At the exact point that colleges need as many rubes as possible to enroll, those least likely to pay anything near the rack rate are the only ones that they can get to sign up.

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            Don’t worry, we’ll be forced to subsidize their college educations next. We won’t be able to get our own but we’ll certainly pay full price for theirs.

      • bilderbuster

        I’ll bet Blacks will flunk out more and default on their student loans more than Whites too.

      • John Smith

        Those that can hack it to any extent often pick medical school rather than post-grad education in a specific STEM subject.

  • Red

    I look forward to the statistics telling me how many actually graduated. Doubt it will ever be published, unless it’s spun into an article railing against YT’s racism.

  • Okay, what do they mean here by “college?” I think they’re stretching the definition of “college” to mean everything from Harvard to fly by night store front “schools” that advertise on low information undertow daytime TV shows.

    • MikeofAges

      I think they mean a two or four year institution. But there are others types of institutions now than the traditional college. Many of these offer job related two and four degree programs, but have little in the way of a core curriculum, no streams of willing coeds, and no varsities. I doubt many blacks attends these institutions whatsoever, and very few straight out of high school. I don’t think too many people of any ilk attend these institutions straight out of high school. The ones offering technical and engineering degrees I would say are the most legitimate. Other institutions call themselves colleges but are not academic colleges by any meaning of the word.

      • bilderbuster

        When Burger King was headquartered in Miami there was BKU (Burger King University).

  • Groovy

    • SentryattheGate

      Yep, the trades (plumbing, air conditioning/heating, electrical, car mechanics) need younger workers. I read that the average age currently is 54, and too few to take their places. Meanwhile, apprentices can earn while they learn–no college debt! Then later, they can decide if they want to take some college courses for another vocation.

      • TheCogitator

        I tell my 10-year-old grandson to learn air conditioning, refrigeration and heating after he finishes high school. Even if he decides to go to college because he wants to be a rocket scientist or a brain surgeon, he will be able to make better money working with a skill while he is going to college, and not just a minimum wage job like those who went to college right after high school.

        Another thing about the trades is that they are hands on work that cannot be outsourced to a country where people will work for a fish head and a bowl of rice.

        They have been conning kids into going to college who do not have the mental horsepower for that sort of thing, and with everyone going, they are turning out people who will not find a job in their field of education, but they will have a debt to pay that even bankruptcy will not shed. It’s a racket. The high schools judge their success by how many people they can send off to college, and the colleges are not going to tell the kids it is a waste anymore than McDonald’s will admit that they do not serve the healthiest food.

        • John Smith

          Learn a skill and then go to college because you want to, for your own benefit, not to get a job because of it. Learning how to write is about the best educational achievement you can earn, IMO. So many, even in higher technical fields, are poor at it. A good mix of STEM would also be useful. A smattering of social sciences, such as economics, psychology and sociology would also be of some benefit.

        • Lion’s Mane

          I think that it’s important to LIVE some after high school. I am especially alarmed at those students who go from high school to university and right back into the public schools as teachers. A person should have to live in the real world before becoming a school teacher!

      • MooTieFighter

          My Dad was whining about people around here being too lazy to look for a job. I said to him, “Go try to find any of the machining jobs YOU use to do. Look especially at the wages and benefits”. When he went online to look it up, he said “Never mind, and practically ran away from my house”.

          I hate that he doesn’t get it. He’s been retired for over 20 years. A least I wont have to listen to him for a little while.

      • Race Heretic

        One if the problems is that these trades which use to be performed by working class whites are being taken over by Mexicans. Being a gringo deprives you of the cultural and nepotistic connections to get the coveted training positions and jobs.

        • SentryattheGate

          A roofing contractor admitted to me that his Mexican crews would scope out the neighborhoods while on a roofing job, then come back and steal stuff. So he only uses them on new, vacant developments (of course, there’s stuff there to steal too!). I had asked him if he hired Latinos and that I would not do business with any contractors that did.

What percent have been given money (Federal, State, athletic, private corp., grants, or any academic equivalent of EBT) to go to school after HS? What percent of blacks have admission secondary to affirmative action? What percent study the ‘classics’ like: African history or inner city ebonics or methods of tattoos that will shine on black skin? And most importantly what is the time from starting college to starting their jail time?

  • ZB01

  • Evette Coutier

    Note, of those who graduated. If you compare the number of Blacks of college age vs whites who apply for college, the black rate plummets. So few blacks graduate high school that the drastic means nothing. Plus their college drop out rate is even higher. Considering so many go to low ranked and all black schools, it even means less.

    • Also, this doesn’t take into consideration the number of blacks of that age who are in prison. Therefore black high school graduates are already an elite group.

      • Evette Coutier

        It’s sad but true. Black high school graduates are elite among Blacks.

    • LHathaway

      Well over 80% of blacks graduate HS.

      • Evette Coutier

        Actually, it’s currently 82 percent which is up from 75 percent. But one must consider the academic standards of inner city schools. The truth is very few of them are prepared for college, and the black college drop out rate is 60 percent.

    Jerome and Tyrone (as well as Jose and Pedro) are still on the second block, three months later.

    I get payments from my GI Bill. LaJeevus gets grants, scholarships, and other financial incentives that blow mine out of the water.

    College is great. I love the current model of overwhelming student loans, athletics over intellectual integrity and quality, and sleazy administrative cover ups. sounds very sustainable to me.

    • TruthBeTold

      On the last day of class, watch for Jerome and Tyrone to hang back and then try to explain why they didn’t complete the class but still deserve to get an A.

      • Hammerheart

        I’m going to guess their explanation is going to be equal parts failed voodoo ritual and something about the pale computer keyboard reminding them of the systematic and institutional racism and oppression they and their ancestors have suffered.

        • pennawhytmn

          It is not systematic. It is “systemic”. Liberal and Blacks love that word. Da wurd syxtimik makes me beez smot an sheet upin dis mofo. Nomesayin.

            They used to use the word “dignity” quite a bit when they had no concept of the word as in “I gots my dignity!”

  • Michael Robert Ryan

    And what percentage of black enrollees vs. white enrollees drop out their first semester?

  • junkbondtrader41

    This is actually old news, in a way. A few years ago blacks were boasting that black women had the highest rate of college enrollment of any group, including Asians. Turns out it was a statistical one-off, with Asians rising and blacks dropping again the following year. But there has been a higher enrollment rate among black women than both white men and white women for years.

    Graduation? That’s another story!

  • Tarczan

    I for one am thrilled that the race that traveled the universe, built great cites and invented rap music will finally get a chance to achieve once again the greatness that is their destiny.

    • Tarczan

      Oh yeah, and cornrows.

      Their ancestors were also the first to perform brain surgery. Don’t leave that one out.

      That was all done before the Greeks stole their ideas and technology.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Notice these biased articles by the controlled media never, ever report the college graduation rates of blacks vs. White – or if blacks do graduate, what the degree is in.

    How many blacks graduate with degrees in engineering, applied mathematics or nuclear physics? Or are their degrees in useless fields such as black studies?

    • MooTieFighter

      they are starting to push them in these degrees despite the fact their grades are not there

      • Lion’s Mane

        Lowering the standards harms everybody and helps no one. It’s a certain way to bring a nation to its knees. The United States, like the old U.S.S.R., is crumbling from within.

    Can you say, AFFIRMATIVE ACTION and ANTI-WHITE DISCRIMINATION boys and girls?

  • antiquesunlight

    College is extremely expensive, especially good colleges.
    Whites have a harder time getting financial assistance.
    Colleges favor minorities over whites in acceptance.
    A lot of whites are capable of earning a fair living without college, because they have the brains and work ethic.

    It’s pretty simple.

  • corvinus

    Because they don’t mention Hispanics, I suspect they lumped in Hispanics with whites… again.

  • Jason Lewis

    This only includes those who actually finish high school. With around a 50% dropout rate I guess they need something to be proud of.

  • I am actually not surprised at this at all. College has lost its original meaning. People now realize it is just a big rip off unless you are studying for a specific profession. I notice that more White men are learning shop skills. They are learning technical skills that are in high demand, like automotive repair, plumbing, air conditioner/heater service, etc. Yep, they know some expensive degree is bull these days. Meanwhile blacks love college because they get to see all “dem wite wimenz!”

    • John Smith

      I’m going to be going back to school for technical training in a medical specialty next year. Harder to outsource and fewer Chinese and Indians forcing the pay down.

      • Lexonaut

        Stick to that plan, John. You will not regret it.

        My wife, a high tech manager with an MBA, got tired of being laid off during recessions and went back to school eleven years ago at age 60. As soon as she got her CNA she was able to work while continuing her schooling at night. By five years into her plan she was an RN/BSN.

        The pay is not too terribly less now than what she had been earning as a manager, and the longest period of unemployment she has faced since starting as a CNA was three months. (And that was once. Usually the between-jobs downtime is measured in days/weeks.)

        We had to take on a large amount of student debt to execute the plan, but we retired the last student loan two years ago. If she could do it, so can you.

  • Basketeddie

    The article points out “of those who graduated from high school.” They dismiss or neglect to mention the 40% high school dropout rate among blacks. And enrolling in college is not the same as attending college. Let’s see some stats about how many of these college bound blacks actually complete a full year of college, (or, better yet, graduate) and then compare it to whites.

    • Lexonaut

      Sh-h-h-h. You’re not supposed to notice these things.

  • Cookie Rus

    There is something unsaid in all the “college” statistics. Over the last decade I have observed first hand legions of young blacks that previously would have been welfare mothers or unemployed males suddenly become “students”. They enroll in community college classes just long enough to receive every possible grant, loan, and financial aid imaginable and virtually never finish the two year AA program, but can continue as “students” for at least five years. Worse still, none of this money is even considered as entitlment or welfare by the government, its not even debated since its carried as loans on the books. When you read articles about exploding “student” debt, a huge portion of this is actually disguised welfare for this new breed of “student”.

  • Jackie Treehorn

    Easy when you don’t have to pay for it or have qualifications for acceptance.

  • Jim Kental

    They may enroll in higher numbers, but very few pass their classes.

  • Sid Ishus

    All those unsecured loans given to Jamal and Shitavious…what could possibly go wrong?

    • John Smith

      Worse if they actually stay in school and make the white students miserable with violence, dumbing down to accommodate them, forced PC intimidation.

  • Ultimate187

    Enrollment is not as important as the proportion which actually graduates.

    • you forgot affirmative graduation. It would be racist to have most Blacks failing to graduate. Google “affirmative action hoax”

  • Nationalist

    Anyone else having their comments removed? When did Amren become so PC?

  • The Worlds Scapegoat

    Blacks are more likely to be accepted into college and have their tuition paid for.

    .

  • Illidan Stormragge

    This is influenced by government initiatives but also by the fact that they take on more debt than average than white students, which either ease the debt through work or get more support from parents.

  • John Smith

    Oh, no. Brothas just can’t catch a break on the RAY-cis SAT.

    http://www[dot]jbhe[dot]com/features/49_college_admissions-test.html

    They do badly because white teachers be ray-cis, society be ray-cis, tests be ray-cis, working hard to pass and study be ray-cis. Solution? Mo’ Affirmative Action, Dawg.

  • superlloyd

    If you analyse the colleges and their intakes by race even accounting for Affirmative Action, analyse the degrees taken by race, the grades achieved and the graduation rates by race then I’m sure the picture is very different. This is just skewed diversity propaganda for Starbucks liberals. The IQ chasm hasn’t gone away and Latrina’s degree in African Studies still, despite the dumbing down of higher education, does not equate with an applied Mathematics degree from MIT.

  • InAFreeCountry

    The immigrants bust their behinds for LESS. White men would do these jobs if they paid enough, like we did 20-30 years ago.

    • SentryattheGate

      Yes, but they soon won’t be paid less! Even 10+ years ago, illegals sued for back wages and got them—for not being paid the prevailing wage!

  • LS Wight

    Yes, because it’s free for them. Deny Cultural Marxism!

  • Light from the East

    How many of blacks high school graduates need affirmative actions to eliminate their natural disadvantage? Their stupidity cannot be cured so they remain uncompetitive and unproductive, resulting in higher unemployment rate.

  • LS Wight

    Yep.

  • pwnful truth

    As a recent college grad, I saw this phenomenon, and it’s 100% due to the blacks’ familiarity with handouts. If you are low income, and sign up for college, you’ll end up getting enough aid that you’ll pocket about $2000 extra after paying for school. If you sign up for loans, you might pocket as much as 10,000. The halls of community college teem with blacks, but not the classroom. They’re there for the paycheck. Most flunk out or just stop going after one semester

  • SimplyFred

    When Lyndon Baines Johnson began the ‘war on poverty’ (sic) the average ACT score at all black howard university was 11 points. Decades later, with welfare spending at a trillion a year the average ACT score at howard university is 11 points. How far down have we lowered the standards for college admission? Secret is, a black just has to roll a condom on a banana to get into jew dictatorship harvard.

  • 1Forced_Registration

    What they aren’t telling you is that the completion rates (for most people attempting BTW) are abysmal. There are plenty of schools here where the completion rates are in the 20% and lower overall, and single digits for black attendees. That doesn’t mean people don’t eventually finish their degrees, but they fail to do it within 6 years.

  • Snazzy Snook

    And I’m sure that blacks are more likely to drop out or flunk than whites ..

  • SentryattheGate

    Only for a generation! Then their kids refuse to work that hard (whine about racism), have illegitimate kids and get on welfare (or, with affirmative action, get easy gov’t. work). As the saying goes “We should have picked our own cotton!” Decades later, we have paid BILLIONS for that mistake!

  • robbie jay

    The key word to remember is “graduates”.

  • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

    I wish I could feel bad for white women (and I probably should, because I am one), but the vast majority loved being a “protected class” and didn’t have a problem with sticking it to the white man. I don’t spend any time in real life around women so I don’t know if they’re really as bad as they are online, but their internet commentary doesn’t make me sympathetic. They’re just doubling down on the BS trying to show how good and righteous they are, hoping to retain their position. But they’re so stupid that they fail to realize that they were just means to an end, and now are being discarded like all useful idiots/traitors.

    I especially hate them because of the damage they’ve done to the white race and relations between whites of both sexes. They also treat other women like garbage and love mean-girl behavior. Nope, no sympathy here except for the extremely rare decent ones out there getting lumped in with the rest.

    • ElComadreja

      I have to agree. They’ve never protested the “women and minorities” BS and they’re far more likely to miscegenate than white men.

    • Rob

      White women have degraded in class and everything feminine since the 1960s. Our enemies in Hollywood and the entertainment media have made being feminine uncool and being masculine for women to be cool.

      • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

        My own mother never taught me a thing about being a woman, other than to “be independent and work”. I knew nothing when I went out on my own about anything traditionally womanly and it’s not fun learning all those things myself as a mother. But I’m teaching my children the old ways and I don’t think I’m alone.

        Personally, I think I took on some masculine characteristics because I knew nobody would take care of me. I had “do what you want” parents that rarely ever backed me up, am an only child, so I felt that being less ladylike would make me less of a target (you probably know what happens to blonde, blue eyed girls in a “diverse” school). Maybe that’s why other women do it, because we feel abandoned and unprotected.

        • Lion’s Mane

          There is no more sacred task than being a mother raising her children. “The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.” — Wallace “The two most precious things in life are children and liberty.” — Dr. Thomas Szasz

          My theory is that mothers are especially influential over their sons and fathers over their daughters — but this is only a guess; I’m sure there are plenty of exceptions. Mothers certainly have enormous power and influence over their children of both sexes.

          Women who believed the propaganda that a career in competition with men was elevating to their status failed to understand the awesome status of motherhood. If only our culture could appreciate the true meaning of this most honorable position.

          Besides, there’s time for a career outside the home later in life. I’m all for women learning and accomplishing anything they want. Some women are not ‘cut out’ for motherhood, and that’s fine also. I’m not trying to force them all into a single mould. Each life is unique.

    • Tony Murphy

      Well said.

  • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

    You don’t need college to learn, especially not now. I never went to college, and many of the people I know who did are stone cold stupid. I saw in high school that college would be more of the same moronic propaganda, only this time I’d be paying for it. I was already being given bad grades because of my ultra-right wing sensibilities and race realism in an extremely liberal school system, so I figured, why waste my time and parent’s money?

    I am not saying that all people who went to college are stupid, just that the vast majority of people I have encountered are.

  • MooTieFighter

    College is beginning to mean less and less. Remember when only the brighter students went to college? So many worthless degrees that are really more indoctrination than education. It has now met a level where debt is higher than the pay offs. The STEM courses are now being filled by VERY less qualified applicants to make quota’s. Med schools and law schools now have become open doors for blacks while remaining competitive for the rest of us. It is making us a less intelligent and less competitive nation, which again, is the whole idea.

    • Evette Coutier

      Exactly, all they have done is further devalue the college degree.

  • Realist

    “Among Recent High School Graduates, Blacks Are More Likely Than Whites to Enroll in College’

    This tells you all you need to know about higher education in the U. S.

  • MooTieFighter

    This ideology has also invaded the military. So many go for the pay check but lie low and try avoid hard work/conflict. This is not to take away from our real patriots that go in honor and defense of this great country (God bless you guys and gals), but the reality is, so many use it as a check.

  • Maximus

    No matter how much blacks that get into college they will still always fail in life. Diversity thinks it can fool Mother Nature, genes and the natural selection. Mother Nature is the almighty God of justice without hate or love just objectively perfect.

    White quality people will always have Mother Nature on their side. We are the only race (and maybe the Japanese to) the she really care for.

  • Michigan Patriot

    The White taxpayer does !

  • Michigan Patriot

    I am just so happy that the blacks created the university/ college system for us Whites to become educated to a much higher learning level that we could ever attain on our own and they pick up the tab ! My LSD is kicking in and I’m tripping out.

  • Herman

    I find that story very hard to believe.
    Only 67.3 % of whites? Please.

  • LiberalismFailed

    As the number of working age whites shrinks, there services will be in increasing demand. Whites are desperately sought in the skilled construction trades. I was talking to a contractor the other day who told me that skilled contractors, plumbers, electricians, etc. will be the upper white collar class as America continues its path to third world status.

  • We don’t have to worry anymore. If you read Steve Sailer today, then you know the SAT is getting yet another round of dumbing down. Soon one should expect a barrage of very high scores out of the ghetto. Of course we all knew that the SAT was going to be reworked around Commune Core when David Coleman made the move from being a Bully Gates whore to the College Board.
