Can you elaborate?

I don't know how much this plays into the issue at large, but I know how it affected me. A lack of generational wealth may play a big part into the problem of starting college and not finishing it.

A lot of the white people I knew going to my college didn't work, or if they did, it was a small part time job. Maybe a job on campus or something. One of my best male friends had his parents pretty much pay for everything. He got to enjoy the typical college life. I remember feeling bitter about that.

I worked 2 jobs my freshman year and it affected my grades as I adjusted to college. I think my GPA was like 2.25 my first semester. And that's after graduating HS with honors and going to college with a couple academic scholarships.

I let go of one of those jobs, but I still continued working full time because I had financial obligations past school and having pocket change. I wouldn't doubt that a lot of students not finishing struggle to balance work and school.

Hubby and I were discussing this and the only reason we were able to finish (I only have a 2-yr degree and am still working on a bachelor's.  He has a bachelor's) is because we supported each other.  I agree with RT.  It's the support system.  You can get loans to cover school but you have to have your behind in the chair and you can't be at work and in the chair.  Loans might get your tuition and books but they run out and you still got rent, groceries, gas, lights etc.  

Systematic oppression is the reason.  Our parents don't have to give us.  We try to get on our own and we create debt.  Being in debt we don't have to give to our children.

That is correct!
 
There is like an 8 to 1 ratio of black women to black men ... as it is! Duh! Black women need to branch out if they want a partner.
 
About this article .... what ... they should 'raise the bridge' not 'lower the water'? In other words .. instead of encouraging Black men to get an education .. encourage black women to dumb themselves down?
 
Makes no sense.

I did not read the entire article....this chick has to be an internet shill! Black women dont go to school cause it will be too much debt or just get a husband this is a bunch of malarky....I will read when I get in....
y didn't she write about making school more affordable to black women? Is it that we have an exceptional black woman in. the White House? is that too much potential for us to see?....screw her dumb ass!

I don't understand why one would have to choose btw college and marriage.  This article just wants public attention and what better way to get it is to jump on the "black women can't get a man" topic bandwagon.

 

Speaking from my experience and the women that are around me, most of my BW friends with college degrees are married.  Most of my BW friends that didn't go to college are still running around with the same low grade a**holes....and have trouble paying their bills.   I see this not only in my BW friends but Latinas, Indians, and etc.    Also, I'm not saying all women without degrees have these issues, because that is definitely not the case.   I truly think that women that push themselves to learn more are also socializing more and they are getting opportunities to meet more men...and not just BM. 

I rather use my own experience and from people that I know......not some BS that doesn't have any real facts or some dumb-a** unbelievable statistics.
