The greatest value of attending college, in addition to mastering information that can eventually evolve into a tangible skill, is learning that a vision and an accomplishment are seperated by hard work. However, one need not have attended college to know any of this. Ancestor El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz ( Malcolm X ) didn't pass the eight grade, yet he never lost a debate, even in the midst of Harvard scholars with Ph.Ds. Therefore, the question must be asked as to whether or not the faculty and / or staff of Historically Black Colleges and Universities really have their students best interests in mind. Although President Barack Obama gave many millions of dollars to HBCUs, not much changed in terms of students collectively creating connections and infrastructure AMONG THEMSELVES. These two elements are the precursors of mass employment that other groups of people utilize in order to live secure and productive lives. If you look at any HBCU Social Medium, however, HBCU football rivalries and homecoming queen stuff is the talk that gets the most coverage. THE GREATEST CREATORS OF BLACK EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES SHOULD BE THE HISTORICALLY BLACK COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES, but they are far from being that. Are these colleges being guided by competent people who are just as special as the students who choose to attend them ? The rapidly emerging economies within the African Continent are out of sight, out of mind, and NEVER discussed. And we wonder why unemployment rates of Black people have always been disproportionately higher than that of any other group of people ? So the question of whether or not people who influence HBCU affairs truthfully hold the best interests of the students as priority number one. When it comes to high unemployment within our communities, we have nobody to blame outside of ourselves.
