Biden vows free community college, help for schools serving minorities

Joe Biden’s campaign said they would make community college free and invest $70 billion in historically black colleges and universities as well as those serving other under-represented groups. Of this, Biden has pledged to spend about $10 billion to help them increase enrolment and graduation rates.

while someone like me...a white Male...when I was 20 tried to get help going to college but was turned down for all financial aid because I'm not any kind of poc and was making 13k a yr....oh right I forgot it's only ok to be racist against whites because we all are already rich...wait...making 13k a yr is poverty....but I'm white....I'm supposed to be rich....

These policies only serve to harm the very demographics they aim to help in the long run. Government interference is market distortion that we’ll pay for later, both literally through taxation or debt and figuratively by the effects they impart.

While Joe is at least partially implicated in a scandal to get his kid a high paying job based on political influence, his campaign chooses to make his new marketing symbol a pair of dark sunglasses. How does that make sense?

Speaking as a black man, I find this to be bullshit. The PoC community already gets enough help for colleges; I mean, hell, there's a scholarship for just being black. Why not give the same help to everybody? It's not only PoC that have difficulty getting into college. Also expect a rise in taxes in order to pay for all this shit. Nothing in life is ever free, but it seems to me that liberals dont know that.

Biden's plan is just more free stuff; it does nothing to address the reasons that higher education has become more costly. I won't support any plan that is just "here is free stuff give me your vote".

Strangly... I support states providing free community college and trade school/ Perhaps the Federal Goverment should provide states funding for such programs. Either way, this needs to be a state run initiative.

More "free stuff" for people who don't have the ambition to get it themselves. A few will benefit while the rest will waste it and others will pay for it.

Is it not the responsibility of a private college to increase enrollment and graduate rates?

If colleges don't profit from students where does the profit come from? Oh government dependency.
