And adding to your response, I would like to say that, again, not every failed relationship that a Black woman experiences is the result of her selecting 2-bit hustlers, drug dealors, and losers off the streets. Educated brothers and sisters, with good heads on their shoulders, experience failed relationships too! And no one wakes up in the morning to say, "You know what, today, I want to pick the wrong person for me." Usually, both men and women, will not discover that someone is "wrong"...

no, people don't 'wake up' one morning and pursue that 'wrong person', but those people ACTIONS show that they did. Actions are all we can judge here...and unfortunately for many young black women, it's the action of dating/mating a thug. Maybe those women are too young to understand that long term effects of that choice or maybe they were just trying to be a part of the 'in' crowd...whatever. The result is plain as day when numerous black women are not pursuing relationships that are sane...

What if? That is not a safe assumption, IMO. A teacher is required, certainly in a public school, to set a better example than this.

When the word nigger comes from a white person it is derogatory, subjugating, and inflammetory. And he did this in public, in front of other students, which to my mind just throws gas on the...

Re: College "Education" Is BS

Have to agree with you on this one, EP. For the most part, colleges and universities are institutions of conformity. I say this with some insight, having worked at UCSF in administration for eleven years. In general, colleges and universities are a mirror of the values of society. And in this society, the reflection is capitalism and power. For US colleges and universities, government funding, corporate funding, private grants, and alumnae contributions, pretty much spell status quo.
