His grades got him the quality education. The middle school where he was (in Houston) was not just ghetto,its across from a rundown club with a lot of drug activity. The neighborhood is horrible. i think thats one of the schs we were voting to close down.

The high sch he went to is one of the best in Houston,they hand pick the brightest kids from middle schs who are interested in health professions. They are nurtured for those careers and most have multiple full paid scholarships to universities of their choice.

My point is,he worked hard from a young age,thrived in a horrible middle sch and it opened doors for him.
african parents?
 
Bingo.
You've been thanked.

He is 22. I'm 27. The age difference isn't that large. We could work. We share a similar culture and a love of education.

I'm not surprised because he's African. If he was AA , that would be the real surprise.

Maybe when we ALL...
Congratulations. One story where he thrived despite his circumstance

I don't entertain the pull yourself up by your bootstraps argument from white people, won't do it on bhm

^^^this. 

Congratulations to him, I hope he's very successful in his future career.Clap

Maybe you're right, we don't have access to the same quality of education but black parents should seek more for their children. Its 2012, you dont have to learn everything in a classroom

a HUGE issue.  parents think learning stops in the classroom.  it needs to start before they ever enroll and continue after school hours, on the weekends, etc.  parents act like school is a daycare conveyer belt...

this guy was gifted though.  i'm glad that his initial school experiences didn't discourage him.

But the parents that dont realize this are rarely equipped to subsidize their child's education at home, or hire someone else to do so. This is a multifaceted problem covering both race and socio-economic standing.
