(Tony Sifert, Headline USA) Entitled leftists duped by colleges into spending more than $100,000 on worthless degrees are complaining that President Joe Biden’s unconstitutional plan to transfer $10,000 in student loan debt from borrowers U.S. taxpayers to isn’t doing enough to help American minorities, according to a report from The Hill.
For some organizations, the #StudentLoanDebt crisis is actually a civil rights crisis. My latest for @thehill explores how some Black borrowers and advocates feel about @POTUS’s #studentLoanForgiveness plan.

Cheyanne Daniels, The Hill‘s “Race & Politics” reporter, drew her readers’ attention to the plight of Chicago native James Alford, who borrowed $120,000 to minor in “Black studies” before getting a master’s degree in adult education.
Alford hasn’t yet been able to secure a job and, following the NAACP’s lead, complained that Democrats need to do more for blacks.
“It’s cool, but it really doesn’t mean anything,” said Alford. “I feel like there were promises for more, and I feel like more could be done to ease the burden on people of color and first generation students.”
Alford’s sentiments echoed those of NAACP President Derrick Johnson, who took to Twitter to castigate Biden for leaving blacks behind.
.@POTUS’s decision on student debt cannot become the latest example of a policy that has left Black people, especially Black women, behind. This is not how you treat Black voters who turned out in record numbers and provided 90% of their vote to once again save democracy in 2020.

“This is not how you treat Black voters who turned out in record numbers and provided 90% of their vote to once again save democracy in 2020,” Johnson wrote.
Perhaps these activists should have paid attention when 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., turned up her nose at the plight of a blue-collar father who took extra shifts at work in order to pay for his daughter’s college tuition.
"I've saved all my money. [My daughter] doesn't have any student loans. Am I going to get my money back?"
Elizabeth Warren: "Of course not."

For politicians like Biden and Warren, the American working and middle classes exist to fund the Democratic party’s political program and the interns needed to staff it, and only an American underclass increasingly divided by race can fail to notice that debt relief is not for them.
