what creates a ton of black marriages, black families, black business people and black employees? HBCUs. Historically Black Colleges and Universities were created when public and state university would NOT accept black people into their schools. HBCUs are more successful in creating happy, healthy, black professionals.
I also believe in trade school and community colleges for creating more plumber, electricians, contractors, hvac repair men, and truck drivers all fields paying 80,000 a year. Folks need income to combat low entrepreneurship, low home ownership, low children healthcare rate, low marriages. Sadly money makes more healthy families, situations and communities.
Black woman are starting businesses at 6x the national average but in order for successful marriages to occur, black males need access to higher paying jobs and career fields. This is where trades and community college come in to fix the gap.
TOM JOYNER FOUNDATION. WHY? money being taken away from HBCUs and Lack of ALUMNI donations. If some of these colleges fall under 3000 students than they have budget shortcuts. there are only 100 basically HBCUs if you had 100 athletes/superstars/musicians/community leaders give 1 million dollars to each school, it would help clear budgets, and more kids go to college.
100 stars=1 million a school
200 stars= $500,000 a year to a school (2 stars together on one school)
400 stars= $250,000 a year to a school ( 4 stars together on one school)
1000 stars = $1000 a year to a school. BIG changer.
GUESS WHAT we are ALL stars if we all just give 100 to 1000 a year a great difference can be made.
1 million people x 100 donation a year= 100 million dollars = 1 million for each school.
1 million people x 1000 donation a year= 1,000,000,000 BILLION dollars= 10 million per school. That is the kicker for the African American Community and a change in population education rates. More kids can go to school for free or reduced by scholarships.
More BUSINESSES. PERIOD. out of 22 million african Americans over 18 years old there are 2.6 million firms most have 1 person companies they created over 103 BILLION dollars into the economy. Also if 22 million and out of those 2.7 million are still unemployed, those firms could easily absorb them by hiring 1 black person each. Knowing that most likely won’t happen I suggest many folks grab skills from the local community college or courses like mine or Andre Hatchett’s or Dr Boyce Watkins or Glendon Cameron. If you are stuck at home and start knocking doors DAILY you could easily get $1500 to $3000 dollars a month with a service business. Most people in this group need access to CREDIT as well.
