College, professional, and graduate schools currently cost more than ever. The cost of higher education has surged more than 538% since 1985 while the consumer price index has increased by 121%. Higher education is 4.5 times as expensive today as it was 30 years ago. There are people today who went into debt for higher education who are having their social security retirement checks garnished for student loan repayment. Among 22-year-old degree holders who found jobs in the past three years, more than half were in roles not requiring a college diploma, The young and educated are settling for jobs they wouldn’t have accepted a decade ago,
Going to a four year school is supposed to be the foundation from which you create a future, not the transaction that crushes hopes and places you in debt that few can pay off in 10 years. What has been missing in the past was a way to get feedback or collaborate on ideas while studying on-line. Successful students of today are people who explore many things, tinkerers and fixers who see solutions to problems that other people do not see. Among the leaders in “free education “ is Khan Academy which has a unique teaching style with quality content and a wide breadth of topics; providing bite-sized, easily-understood lessons, and providing the positive feedback that keeps the student coming back .
Students are turning to “self-study” programs blossoming on-line. Some are taking the bare minimum number of classes required by a “big name” university, at the cheapest price, then take educational and enrichment courses through free non-degree online courses . Such students are choosing to build their own educational curricula.

Social justice imposes on each of us a personal responsibility to work with others to design and continually perfect personal and social development. The term "social justice" was seen by the U.N. "as a substitute for the protection of human rights [and] first appeared in United Nations texts during the second half of the 1960s. At the initiative of the Soviet Union, and with the support of developing countries, the term was used in the Declaration on Social Progress and Development, adopted in 1969.
The Quran contains numerous references to elements of social justice. Charity and assistance to the poor – concepts central to social justice – are and have historically been important parts of the Islamic faith. The notion of social justice first surfaced in Western thought and political language in the wake of the industrial revolution and the parallel development of the socialist doctrine. It emerged as an expression of protest against what was perceived as the capitalist exploitation of labor and as a focal point for the development of measures to improve the human condition.
Many authors criticize the idea that there exists an objective standard of social justice.Some people accept some of the basic principles of social justice, such as the idea that all human beings have a basic level of value, but disagree with the tenet that all people are equally entitled to the respect of their fellowmen.Some scholars reject the very idea of social justice as meaningless, religious, self-contradictory, and ideological, believing that to realize any degree of social justice is unfeasible, and that the attempt to do so must destroy all liberty.
Cedric Hendricks - A Social Justice Advocate.
Meet a man who wears many hats - all with a passion and determination that has spanned his years as an advocate for social justice via the media, the penal system, the political arena and more.
Social justice can be defined as promoting a just society by challenging injustice and valuing diversity where all people have a right to equitable treatment and support for their human rights. In conditions of social justice, people are not discriminated against, on the basis of gender, sexuality, religion, political affiliations, age, race, belief, disability, location, social class, socioeconomic circumstances, or other characteristic of background or group membership.
Social justice assures the protection of equal access to liberties, rights, and opportunities.Human rights include general freedom; dignity; life; liberty; security; equality before the law; presumption of innocence until proven guilty; freedom of movement and residence; right to seek and gain asylum from persecution; right to a nationality; the right to marry and have a family; right to own property; freedom of thought, conscience and religion; freedom of peaceful assembly and association; the right to participate in government; the right to work by free choice and to have protection against unemployment; the right to equal pay for equal work; the right to rest and leisure; the right to an adequate standard of living with food, clothing, housing and medical care inthe event of sickness, disability and old age; the right to education; the right to participate in the community and "to enjoy the arts and to share in scientific advancement and its benefits"; the right to the "protection of the moral and material interests resulting from any scientific, literary or artistic production of which [one] is the author. Additionally, people enjoy freedom from slavery or servitude; torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment; discrimination; arbitrary arrest, detention, or exile; arbitrary interference with privacy; among many others.
The concept of social justice involves finding the optimum balance between responsibilities as a society and responsibilities as individuals to contribute to a just society. Some scholars have documented that oppression is often allowed to occur in group settings because group members’ privilege is left unchecked and unchallenged. A number of people believe attention to social justice concerns is not within their roles so they do not address issues of member oppression and marginalization . The lack of attention to group members’ diversity is often re-traumatizing to those who have survived socio-cultural oppression.“Oppression”, in this text refers to‘a state of domination where the oppressed suffer the consequences of deprivation, exclusion, discrimination, exploitation, control of culture, and violence.
The United Nations has addressed “human rights” on an international scale and acknowledges that in a number of nations, ”indigenous people” who are entitled to the full protection of the individual human rights system, have their rights violated and often experience poverty and disadvantage to a greater extent than the rest of the population. The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People recognize the difficulty in realizing human rights for Indigenous people who have been disadvantaged on a systemic level by historical discrimination and dispossession over past centuries; however, there has never been such an assessment of the condition of the Black American in the United States of America.

We will discuss the black church, black secular community and its claim of the social justice mantle. Everybody wants to claim that they marched with MLK and had tea with MalcolmX. Was that really the case? Let's talk about this and more.
Were the Black Power Movement and Civil Rights Movement started and maintained by the black church?
Were the Black Power Movement and Civil Rights Movement started and maintained by the secular community?
Were these movements supported and funded by the black church? What percentage? ...and more...
How were black womens issues handled by the church? Were they supportive or patriarchal in approach?
Although women started, funded and maintained these movements, they were pushed to the back. Current movements are being spearheaded by women.
Is that why the response has been dismal from the black church?
Is that why the response has been dismal from the black community?
Is that why the response has been dismal from the black secular community?
Is the old Civil Rights Vanguard attempting to co-opt these movements from the young people who started them?
This movement is inclusive of ALL BLACK LIVES. Is that why you some black men rejecting it? Do they believe that the focus should be on Black men and then they will help the women? Are we falling for that trick again?
That and more.
Rose Colombo says, "We are our thoughts." She believe that even though the world is bombarded with negative social injustices and even downright evil people with negative thoughts who don't like themselves or anyone else and serve no purpose to make it a better world that they are covering their insecurity, pain and suffering and ignorance with their evil deeds that help them feel empowered and build up their ego so they can justify their bad behaviors towards others. Rose is a long time researcher and advocate for justice whose quotes have been published in major newspapers, Denver Post, Boston Globe, L.A. TImes, Orange County Register, The Journal of Commerce and Science, L.A. Daily [Law] Journal and more....she believes that it's never too late to stop evil people from achieving their goals if enough good people pray, think positive thoughts, and take positive action.
