They tell me education is the key to success
the key that will get me out this mess
the key that will present me with a new dress,
walk and flow about me.
Present me as "Doctor" instead of "Mister"
and society tells me if I don't want that then
I will end up just another loser.
So why not pursue higher education?
They say we promise you high paying careers
so you don't have to worry about your own finances.
You get all this and more
so come follow me through these doors
and by the age of twenty four
you'll have a masters that will help
you advance to magnificent chapters.
But before you walk this first floor let
me tell you a little bit more about this
payment we call for that might give you an eyesoar
and by the time that you're a sophomore
we expect to kick you out that front door
and you will forever more be living outdoors.
So you can have all this and more
for a yearly payment of forty four.
Add three zeros to that and we'll like that.
So please reply back so you can start cutting back.
I am an African American male,
so what other choices do I have,
either be in jail or serve Lobster Tail.
The American Dream is a business with
franchises that include prisons, ALEC corporation
partners, and sadly colleges.
The fact that education is a business is digusting.
EDUCATION SHOULD NOT BE A BUSINESS!!!
The fact that I am expected to pay an arm
and a leg and possibly go into debt for a piece
of paper that tells people that I deserve more net
is a disgrace.
In America The Great, where I
am more likely to catch a case than to graduate.
But America embraces.
They love to see families like mine starve
because it only makes me go hard to
make sure my mother and father have
their own backyards.
So i'm sorry to bombard
but to have people be a customer to
their own education will only go so far.
