Why not be selfish at that point in your life. No matter your race. Why not be selfish for your own good.  As an athlete who deserves the best, I would want nothing other than the best for myself. And unfortunately, from how the world is, how it grew to be from the beginning, HBCU's cant offer that, and at the end of the day, all these people who are community advocates and HBCU alumni and advocates who are voicing there opinions, they aren't and cant really do anything for me. But "Support" me, whether if I was at a HBCU, or a PWC/U. That's real talk.  I'm not about to struggle like these HBCU/ community advocates. If I'm smart enough, I'm going to that PWC/U and living my life to the fullest with "No regrets", Or woulda, shoulda, couldas... And that goes for "All sports"

At the end of the day, when you are thinking or speaking in a realistic way, I don't know why, and this is a hard thing I struggle with, but people mostly think your being negative. On this situation, especially since it is involving the community, when you are realistic, you are negative and not for the cause, or pushing the topic or subject in a positive direction.  I mean just simply put as a few people made on here.
And as well as, if I'm a top 50 athlete in the U.S. coming out of high school, and the way the economy/world/ is going for "degree" holding "for people who have regular jobs and careers" like not including practice of law, health care, engineering, etc" But if I'm a high schooler coming out, its no way imma go to Hbcu college/university when I can go to Alabama, LSU, etc... heck even these smaller PWCs/PWUs with there multi million dollar facilities, nutrition, training, equipment, sponsorship, and overall exposure, and mostly there ticket "to the NFL". There no way, times have changed by the landslides.

Why?

Are HBCU athletes being first round draft picks?

Are HBCUs getting million dollar shoe contracts per sport?

Do HBCU conferences have their own TV networks?

How many HBCU coaches have multi-million dollar buyouts?

How many HBCU coaches make $17,000,000.00 in a lifetime of coaching?

When was the last time an HBCU was in the NCAA Division 1 Final Four?


Need I go on?

I can agree with you on this one, plus more.  And like I believe I mentioned somewhere else.  Why leave the potential of the top of the world facilities, coaching, nutrition, training, and etc for a HBCU.  I mean in another life, yes this would happen.  But the biggest thing I hate about a lot of people is that, when your being "realistic", they take it as you being negative.

I have to admit I was a little turned off by the poster, when I saw "hogging the jobs".  People don't retire based on just their age but its also based on their financial situation.  If you don't plan early in your career, make sound financial investments you too will be "hogging the jobs" when you time comes. Many retirees have to work when they retire.  I retired at 55 and had prepared in advance so I did not have o work.  I did absolutely nothing for the first six months until boredom sat in.  When the job I currently have fell in my lap it was a Godsend for me physically & mentally.
That's fine. Take it as you will.  Personal or whatever.  But I meant what I mentioned. Not in the way you may have taken it. But to be blunt, that's how millennials have felt and feel. I mean when the Millineals first started graduating in 2005, they were going into a very very slim job market unless it was Public service, Law, health, Engineering, or some type of necessity type career that requires a post post education if that makes sense. The boomer generation was the biggest demographic within the job market. Still somewhat is today. I mean if you worked somewhere for 25 years, 20 years. Why should you have to work a second job, or is it because the means of living over the years got higher. At 65, you draw social security, so your 20 year or plus retirement didn't suffice enough for you?  No its not your fault that within your generation you have to find a job after 55 in your example/case or some cases. I mean, I know most people who retire obviously don't get paid what they did when they worked. And in most cases don't these people have retirement plans,401ks, drops, etc.  But at the end of the day, this is the argument I have with many Gen X'ers and Baby Boomers that a lot of them seem to just not understand.   It bothers me when I hear these 2 groups talk negatively about the lacking within the millennial group compared to them.  So this is a big issue for me. I'm always conversating about this. That's why in particular, so many millennials aren't married, don't have children until up even as of now at 35 year old which is unheard of for many Gen xrs and Boomers. The list goes on. To many all it is is complaining, lacking, and woe its me from the Gen Xrs and Boomers in regards to the millennials. 

I see I'm  :dedhorse:
I made my point.
Evidently while you thought were whipping a**  you failed to comprehend where it said in my post I didn't need to work but a job fell in my lap.    That is why I said you have to make sound investments early in your career to sustain the kind of lifestyle you have grown accustom to.  Perhaps your generation could get better jobs if you stopped using made up words like "conversating" instead of conversing.  :shrug:  The best way for me not to hire you was to say some crap like that.  By the way the job I'm working now I didn't apply or interview for, I was appointed. I only took it out of boredom.  That's what having a good work history/ethic will do for you.:lol:  Also I went out of my way to hire HBCU grads.  My staff was mostly black.
Sarcasm and grammar shamming does nothing for you and me.  And you still didn't make a valid point.  I really don't care if I missed what you pointed out to me in this post, and I certainly don't care about your sarcastic response.  You mean nothing to me, your "constructive" opinion means more to me than I can ever care who you are, what you do, how well your grammar and sentence structure is, and if you are a Employer who would hire me. You arrogant mf. And that's "Exactly" why our youth and people my age rarely respect most of the Gen Xrs and a lot of Boomers because of that attitude. You do nothing for young people, your views are flawed, and you are exactly how you responded to me in my post.  Get tf off my post.

There are some who have opted to turn to the trades in exchange for being frustrated with finding employment in their degree field. Those with mass comm degrees have opted to train and become board ops, camera operators, sound engineers, etc. After working in the field of architecture, I burned out and opted for a career in rail transportation, and never looked back. A field in which you can rise to make a nice 6 figure salary with very good benefits and retirement. An office and a desk isn't all it's cracked up to be.
A lot of millennial college graduates I know are working what you may consider "Blue collar" jobs/careers.  Including myself. I'm in law enforcement, yet have a Master's in Business. And it's certainly "Not" because of me lacking, not putting in the extra effort to apply and get in my field, or the willingness to move, Its just how things played out/and or what's available for me being that I don't have a engineering, law, nursing, medical, etc type of degree/education.

These black athletes aren't going to leave top of the line programs and facilities, training, nutrition, exposure for HBCU's.  I mean just to just keep it real. Its a great dream. But HBCU's would have to get a lot more funding, to improve there athletic facilities, and everything else they can offer compared to these Big PWU's. Even smaller PWC's colleges and universities top HBCU Athletics.

It's really unfortunate to hear stories like this.  Just a good hearted person.

I think this question should be?
 Do you think HBCU's can save millennials and GenX?

I mean that's where we are now.  Where we have been since 2007-2008 to Present.  I know for a fact ill never be able to pay all my student loan debt back. Probably not even half of it.   Not making the money, not getting the career, not having the opportunity as previous generations.
