I don't know of too many people who have openly flaunted a degree everywhere they go. 

Edit: Nevermind...I worked with a Harvard grad and she would be relentless in discussing the details of her studies. Most people are not like that though, and I didn't feel less - than after listening to her. She was kind and non condescending as well, so any feelings of ill will towards her would be unwarranted.

Writing papers aren't no big deal for me and it keeps me focus. So when I do make the move I'll have to be there for a year before going back to school, but probably do a trade or something new just for an extra hustle.
if you go to uni and you come out knowing just your one subject then you're a bigger idiot than what you were when you went in

however people love to critique the higher ed argument by saying that exactly, (you're just versed in your one subject) however learning to critically appraise data, or as you say it in simpler more layman's terms, to counter one argument with another, is an essential life tool that is invaluable to our individual existence as we digest information from all sources

most higher ed graduates leave uni with that essential skill
 
Sleepy You didn't read my whole post. I basically said it became more commercial and is not what it once was. You just added words to what I was saying. Of course you don't go to college and be versed in one subject, this is not a trade. What I'm saying that schools definitely in America is far too capitalistic. It's not what it once was, not in the early 1900s, not in the 1800s, definitely not what it once was in Timibiktu. College should not just be as a economic mobility like how people treat it and I do have friends who treat it as such with degrees, but expanding the mind and becoming better as a human being and etc.

Especially when black folk in this country weren't even allowed to have an education!

No...not every profession, some professions were for the fruits of research and studying to understand human history, biology and etc. Pure academics.
 
 
Hence why I said Timbkutu for reference if you're gonna say black people were denied. They weren't denied education there. And mostly it was for pure academics. Universities are pretty ancient.
