No, I’m not racist…

Alright, I’ve got to get this off my chest.  Just this morning President BO signed into law new legislation about removing the “bank” middleman from the student loan process.  Ok, I haven’t read the actual legislation, but did read this as quoted from the Washington Post:

He said the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 would save taxpayers $68 billion in the coming years by cutting out the role of banks and lending institutions as middlemen in federally guaranteed student loans. The money is to be channeled into the Pell Grant program, invested in community colleges and historically black colleges and used to make student loans more affordable by capping repayments at 10 percent of discretionary income starting in 2014.

Now, I am the farthest thing from racist as you can imagine, but this line really ticked me off:

The money is to be channeled into the Pell Grant program, invested in community colleges and historically black colleges and used to make student loans more affordable by capping repayments at 10 percent of discretionary income starting in 2014.

What the hell?  As I said earlier, I am not racist, and never have been, but why pinpoint “historically black colleges” in this legislation?  Again I come to the point of responsibility.  If these colleges cannot fend for themselves, then they need to be assisted in guidance not money.  What is the difference between a regular college and a “historically black college” anyway?  This I consider discriminatory towards not just whites, but all other races.

I agree, the black race has had it rough…. in the beginning.  They have all the same rights as anybody else now-a-days, and nobody is carrying around slaves anymore.  Get over it, and let’s see real equality, not pick a race and raise it up until it’s above everyone else, then pick another race and to the same.  Equality is the ability for anyone to do anything without being discriminated, and that includes gaining funding for colleges.
