With that said CUNY is good for going into education or civil service. Or you can do well in CUNY, and go to a top grad school.

That is what we need, more over-educated grads in our workforce... I went to CUNY, yet somehow I doing alright, and most of the folks I work around have at least 1 to 2 masters degree, even a Ph.D with big pay checks.. but are super clueless in doing their jobs. They may be very articulate, and great attending all those meetings.

You don't seem to understand "on average". Re-read my post.

On-average, people on the Upper East Side are richer than in Camden, NJ. That doesn't mean there aren't people in Camden, NJ with more money than on the UES. I don't see why this is a difficult concept.

There are people in Sub-Saharan Africa who have more money than some of those living in Beverly Hills, Manhattan, and Greenwich. Doesn't mean Kinshasa is richer than Park Ave.

I read a few articles and even saw a documentary that stated the US is going drag itself into oblivion for expanding an over educated population.

Most of the "over educated" aren't really educated at all. They obtained degrees at fourth-rate schools in order to feed the student loan industry for the balance of their lives. It is precisely this aspect of higher education that is expanding, and rapidly at that.

Education exists at the top venues - which is not limited to the ivies.
Do the research, know what to look for, and you will obtain an actual education.

This is very true. This information is also on lottery of birth.

He is a bigot. He is starting from the false presumption that Sotomayor is Jewish and all else flows from that.

Justice Sotomayor is Puerto Rican...and she grew up in the projects in The Bronx. She can do no wrong in my eyes. She's a home girl, you will recognize her gangsta.....not to be confused with gangster.

Caveat - in order to continue drowning out the truth you might eventually need to turn the music even louder on your little gadget. This can result in permanent hearing loss.
Love this. Cannot rep you again. Keep them coming, so much fun to read.

LOL the people in brighton beach/sheephsead bay are afraid of being "discovered"? Those areas already had their condo boom in 2005 and NO ONE MOVED IN. Prices are lower here than they were in 2004. Lots of developments are sitting empty b/c it's too far from the city and it's not "hip enough" for the white transplants and germans who move here. They move to areas with artisnal stores and high priced groceries and bike lans. There's no way they're going to move to russian, pakistani and hispanic neighborhoods. It will likely never happen b/c even now with the sky high prices in north brooklyn and incredibly low prices in south brooklyn, they're choosiing to move to NJ and the hudson valley.

Yes, things are getting expensive. Yes, certain neighborhoods are losing working class black and Hispanic folk, and I'll agree with you it does suck... But to think that the city will eventually lose it's diversity is ridiculous... Also, Blacks and Hispanics aren't the only ones getting displaced out of neighborhoods... People in areas like Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst, Sheepshead Bay, Brighton Beach, Marine Park, Kensington, etc. are just as terrified of getting "discovered" as any other area in the city. Furthermore, there's too many PJ's, rent stabilized housing, low income housing that was built and continues to be built over the last 10 years and affordable housing programs that range from 50/50 to 80/20 that'll prevent NYC from completely losing it's working/lower middle class renters. Reading online, you'd think there were only five native New Yorkers left in the city... Reality, the city is still overwhelmingly the same and the hype is exactly what it is, just hype...

Now even the "gentrifiers" are squirming about gentrification in Bed-Stuy:

BTW - Had lunch in a Thai restaurant in Woodside yesterday and saw a noticeable increase in the number of yupsters and young seemingly educated people living in the area as well as in nearby Jackson Hts.
