Colleges Are Failing Most Black People, Dr. Boyce Watkins Has A Solution

Dr. Boyce Watkins spent 25 years of his life in colleges and yet the former Syracuse University professor is losing faith in America’s ivory towers. Out of 100 Black people who enter college, only 42 will graduate. Graduates and dropouts alike will leave in debt and about half will default on that debt, leaving a scarlet letter on their credit report and years of financial roadblocks. More than anything, colleges aren’t giving Black people the proper tools to address the conditions they face and the power to actually build communal wealth. Dr. Watkins isn’t one to just complain, he has a solution — The Black Business School.

The Black Business School offers a low cost, high quality, culturally relevant college education for Black people. Instead of meaningless “core courses,” students master subjects like real estate, the stock market and entrepreneurship. In lieu of endless electives, The Black Business School offers students an opportunity to learn how to leverage debt and credit, while learning how to build a competitive Black owned company. Not only are the subjects sharply focused on building Black wealth but the instructors are highly vetted, among the world’s foremost experts in their field. Students learn from Dr. Boyce Watkins himself, acquire the priceless wisdom of Dr. Claude Anderson, real estate investment strategies from Stanford MBA Julienne Gordon and entrepreneurship training from business startup specialist and attorney, Nichole Compton, among many others. The Black Business School offers the best courses, most accomplished instructors and a curriculum laser focused on what Black people need most.

The Black Business School exists to fulfill the educational needs of 21st century Black people. Despite gains in civil rights, diversity and inclusion, Black unemployment remains — always — twice that of whites. Despite the fact that Black individuals have degrees and “good jobs,” white college graduates have more than seven times the wealth of black college graduates. The Black Business School is for people who are tired of looking at the world as it is and wish to work for a new one. The Black Business School is for the individual who desperately wants to quit their job and get off of the corporate plantation but also, for the person who wants to build an empire while maintaining a 9 to 5. The Black Business School is for you and exists to be the ultimate partner to your goals.

College has its place — Dr. Watkins isn’t anti-college but rather, opposed to ignorance and repeating what isn’t working. This isn’t a hustle, most students actually attend at no cost. For those who are serious about changing their destiny, The Black Business School offers students options to attend for just $3 a day. Parents can also take advantage of Black Millions of Tomorrow, a program that educates thousands of children on the core pillars of wealth. Specialists are available on their website to talk with you about different options and financial assistance that is available. Wealth is created daily through the stock market but Black people are mostly uninvolved. The bulk of millionaires build their wealth through real estate and again, Black people are largely uninvolved. The same is true for a range of other areas in business and The Black Business School is the answer. Reach out to a specialist on their website, today.

  1. Lots of blacks are involved in real estate. There are plenty blacks involved in the stock market. That’s a fact. The thing we don’t hear about this. Capri Partners, HJ Russell Construction, RLJ Partners, Victor McFarlane, and several others, black owned businesses involved in real estate, commercial real estate, and in fact, there is an organization called NABHOOD-NAT’L ASSOCIATION OF BLACK OWNED HOTEL OPERATORS, OWNERS, AND DEVELOPERS. THESE ARE BLACK MEN AND WOMEN OWNING COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE ON A LARGE SCALE. Now I love and respect Dr Boyce Watkins and what’s he’s doing with the black business school, because Lord Knows our people our need this now more than ever, but to say that our people are largely uninvolved in the fields of real estate and the stock market is just not true. Now, there is much more work to be done in terms of boosting college graduation rates and college degrees that leads to successful careers and wealth building opportunities, absolutely YES. HELL YES. College Degrees and a 50-60K a yr job is not tantamount to wealth creation because if your making $60K a yr and spending $100K a yr, your operating at a minus. Your running in the red literally. Your bank account is looking like a homicide scene. That’s not wealth building, that’s bullshit. So Dr Watkins is right on the money with what he’s saying about our need to build wealth. Cause we’ve got 34 years till we end up a collective net worth of zero by 2053, if we don’t shift direction in the next 5 years at least. I’m concerned but I’m hopeful. Because I see a number of bright spots on the horizon which keep me upbeat, inspired, encouraged, motivated, and very hopeful. I’m confident that our people will close the wealth gap in the 21st Century. I’m confident cause I know the story and resilience of our people. We will fix this.
