Obama to seek changes in Pell Grants

I fully support President Obama but I think we should all pay attention to what is going on. Pell Grants help many low income African Americans  through college and any changes could potentially be devastating to future black college applicants.

    I am an African American male who attends college and yes, i do think that there should be some amendments to not only the “Pell Grant” but financial aid in general. I will explain my reasoning. I personally know of several African Americans who are “Whoring” the system, particalarly this one woman who stands out in my mind. This woman has been attending college or some sort of institution of higher learning for at least six-teen years and she has not obtained a degree. That’s right i said “six-teen years”. Obviously she’s not the only person who is over-extending and abusing the financial aid system and of course you know caucasians are also committing the same mis-appropriations. The reason why this issue inflammes me so is because i sincerly want to graduate college and get into the work force, but these people have no plans to join the work force. Every time i pass by the message board at my alma mater i notice that there are more and more memos about financial aid being cut. I say, financial should be totally cut and not offered to people who have been attending college for more than seven years without obtaining at least an associates
    degree.
