What was wrong with NYC is all that low classness was allowed to take over. Praise the lord Bloomberg purified NYC and restored it to civilization. Much of the ghettoness has been pushed out msnhatsttan.

Jay-Z is from a ghetto neighborhood in Brooklyn and he doesn't have a college degree. He is "uneducated" on paper although I'd argue that he is way more business savvy than many so-called educated individuals. He also happens to be a minority. However, he is worth at least $650 million USD. Combined with his wife Beyonce, they're worth over $1 billion USD. Since he's an uneducated minority you wouldn't want to talk to him if you happened to bump into him at a nightclub? I thought that you said that "money talks & bullsh*t walks".

Goodluck on your exit out of NYC, hopefully you can find some place that can make you happy. Life is too short to be miserable.

In the job market, employers deal with credentials like degrees, licenses, certificates, union membership. They do not deal with smart poor kids from third world countries who have nothing to back them up.
I don't want to become embroiled in the debate on your opinions, but I do wish to correct you on your latter point. I personally know of many Nigerian children who have won scholarships to Ivy League universities on the basis of their intelligence alone.

I would agree, America does worship money, even citizenship can be bought. But in many ways this is a relatively recent phenomenon 1970s onwards, the demise of the social contract of old America post Reagan in my opinion was immoral and shouldn't be celebrated.

Wealth is now concentrated in the hands of the few and to what end I would ask?

Wealth really always was concentrated in the hands of the few. Before the 690s the Ivy League was for rich white boys. The civil rights bill and other laws changed that.

As for Nigerians at Ivies, they are dwarfed by the numbers of people who pay full tuition. International students at Ivies pay full tuition. You have to have citizenship or a green card to get financial aid.

a lot of those international students who pay full tuition are nigerians....The ivies and other elite schools (ie MIT) theres more nigerians as well as caribbean people attending those schools than afro americans, who i understand are a group you fall under.

and get over yourself and your "ivy league" education. I could somewhat lookup to you if you went to the ivies for Law, Medicine, economics, heck even political science. But you didnt. You went to school for english, a bull****e major as far as im concerned. If i wanted to or was able to goto the ivies, I darn sure would not study a useless major like english or sociology, esp consdering I can leave a much cheaper state school wit hte same education and qualifications.....
