What Colleges are Teaching for $1.4 trillion!

Americans owe over $1.4 trillion in student loan debt. That’s $600 billion more than all the US credit card debt combined! The average student loan debt is over $40k per student and is carried by less than 45 million students. I am not advocating for free college, but I am questioning it and saying maybe we need to rethink how we do education.

You’re sending your children (yes, I said children) to higher education institutions to be taught something. I just don’t know what, exactly.

Have you seen the issues your children are exposed to and the classes you can help your kids purchase with your hard-earned money and our hard-earned tax dollars? You might be surprised at how prevalent these are. They aren’t just an anomaly.

New York University Librarian says she has hit her “race fatigue” limit while being in the presence of “white people.”

Some want to create safe spaces to fight privilege at their universities. Sounds like a great environment for your kids, right?

Then there is Harvard University who wants to expel students who join “single gender” social clubs, fraternities, sororities, and others. Yup, the university has proposed completely eliminating all these and their “pernicious influence” on the students! How about they stick to teaching the core competencies?

A university professor wrote that citations in scholarly articles contribute to “white heteromasculinity” especially if they question research by women and people of color! What happened to accepting good research from “researchers”? Not black researchers. Not women researchers. Not black women researchers. And not black female lesbian researchers. Just researchers! The college where you spend your hard-earned dollars claims that by citing white men before others, you show your privilege. Is that even a class?

A quote often attributed to Jefferson (but disputed) states, “An educated citizenry is a vital requisite for our survival as a free people.” If you really want to see what our well-educated kids are learning go to YouTube and check out the interviews that Mark Dice and others like him do. He asks young and middle-aged people simple questions about American history, politics, and current events. Be forewarned… you will need a barf bag and tissues!

About Joe Messina

Joe is a no-nonsense, conservative realist. He is not interested in “what if?” or “we could have!” He is interested in hearing both sides and has no problem taking on taboo issues with real questions looking for real answers. Racism, religion, and politics are all open season for topics, and he’s happy to offer up his opinion in the process! Joe is an engaging speaker mixing a healthy dose of sarcasm with the cold, hard facts, interacting with the audience, taking questions, and often playing “devil’s advocate”… just to make you to think! Actively engaged in community, church, and politics for well over a decade, Joe enjoys the reputation of being a man of integrity and ethics. He has had several successful businesses and held several executive positions with various Fortune 1000 companies. He is often sought after to teach classes his “black and white breakdown” of business ethics. If you like to “stir the pot” a little and you don’t want to hear any more political correctness, Joe is your guy! Just name a topic… politics, religion, racism, or most any current event. Joe can be heard daily across the airwaves and over the internet on several stations.

  1. Labels, labels…..seems everything and everyone needs a ‘name tag’ these days. Just toss out the Websters or put it with the catalogs in the outhouse….Seems that basic all encompassing names no longer ‘make the grade’……a ‘white woman has become a young or old white woman etc….It would seem that along with common sense, optical observations are out dated….

    It appears that the once upon a time prestigious colleges and universities are the ‘indoctrination rooms’ for the liberal left. Are some of these people so terribly insecure that their only esteem is found in the degradation of others?

    Joe, sometimes you have so much of that old common sense left, it’s scary…l really appreciate “The Real Side…keep up good and much needed service.
