Re: Not all African Americans get free college tuition
"Equal opportunity to compete" is an oxymoron... It doesn't make any friggin sense but sounds good in the political arena (for exactly that reason)... Hook, line, and sinker you seem to have gobbled it up from your favorite politician's talk show. But c'mon man... This is real life, this isn't the special olympics. I'm white, I'm dating a first generation mexican, I have black friends, my brother in law is Chinese. He came here from China when he was 12... He had no handouts, he has school loans over a quarter of a million dollars and he's just finishing up his final fellowship and will be a full-fledged heart surgeon in 11 months... He's 35 and still in school as a general surgeon, as a doctor, and with an undergrad degree from Cal tech in engineering. And (so far) I have made more money than him becuase I'm a lazy american looking for a quick buck. But he didn't ask, didn't want any friggin handouts or "opportunities to compete." He accepted and mastered the challenge of learning proper english in his teens. He's not third or fourth generation, he's an immigrant, and he's done more in 23 years than most do in three or four generations of complaining how the system isn't fair. It's not that the system is unfair or too hard, it's that the average american is too lazy to compete at the level that they dream.
