that’s what one of my home vixens has to pay in student loans.
that’s what another has to pay.
college is great and all,
but that damn “sallie mae” is the devil’s whore.
a proper education costs a lot of money.
imagine doing all that schooling,
but end up not working in your career field.
i know a few in that predicament.
well black billionaire,
robert f. smith,
gave the students of morehouse another reason to celebrate today…
Smith is the founder, chairman and CEO of Vista Equity Partners, a private equity firm founded in 2000. In 2017, Vista Equity Partners had more than $30 billion in assets under management. In 2018, he was declared the richest African American by Forbes Magazine, surpassing Oprah Winfrey.
Smith, who had already pledged $1.5 million to the school, was not to be outdone by the university that invited him to speak at commencement.
So Smith announced that his family would provide a grant to pay of the student debt of the entire graduating class of 2019.
“This is my class,” Smith said, “and I know my class will pay this forward.”
when i font i’d be serving up some serious foxhole that night.
i got my degree and my debt is paid off?
someone’s son was getting their entire torso swallowed.
all jokes aside,
that’s such an amazing blessing.
i’m happy for all those students.
since you messed up with that faux “mj” nonsense,
you should be a little generous to the vixens over at spelman.
it would only be fair.
student loans in this country are absolutely ridiculous.
there is no reason you should be paying off school for decades.
i love when folks post that they finally paid off the devil’s whore,
that’s just a big of an accomplishment as the degree.
lowkey: imagine not graduating this year and missing that blessing?
i’d cry in the car.
