This here's a story about Billy Joe and Bobbie Sue, two college students with lots of school to do. They both wanted a college education, and this is how each paid their tuition... They headed down to the U of El Paso, where paying for school was a great big hassle. Billy Joe worked, nose to the grindstone, Bobbie Sue partied and got a student loan. Go on, take tax money and run... Billy Mack is a politician in Congress, you know he don’t know what the facts is.

She got the money, hey, You know she got away. Her degree was worthless, she’s on welfare today, Singin' go on take tax money and run... Go on, take tax money and run…

The Fight for Free Speech
Fundamental to freedom is free speech. Free speech is the first freedom lost as despots seek and solidify power over people.

It was just for so-called “BIPOC” students, meaning students who are black, indigenous, or “people of color”. Here is part of the text from an email sent to all students who were enrolled in an anthropology course:Continue reading “Nothing to see here, it’s just Colorism”
