The only thing I think when I first saw this ad was of.....the authenticity of the University of Phoenix.
How many people took out loans to get a degree with them and are unemployed or in low paying jobs saddled with loans?
The President fought for low interest loans ....but the education system need to be cleaned up.

My simple answer is ...the loans should never be awarded to kids to pursue dead-end prospects.
You can't place the burden entirely on the kids. At 19/20...kids have very little real life experiences to draw from. And without good parents to steer them ...they often get caught up these scams.

For a bank issuing loans, credible data on the institution is not hard to find.

But instead what do the banks do ....they partner with the schools to hand out these easy loans ....and then run to congress to enact laws preventing any-kind of bankruptcy filing to dis-charge these loans. And of-course ...republicans agree with this one-two con game becauseeeeeee.......all together now ..."personal responsibility!!

That is what us IU grads do. Just sayin...
I actually find it more like encouraging university nepotism. Go to the uni of phoenix and others who went there will recognize you and give you a job over the one who is more qualified than you because of some wierd bond.

No racism however.

You saw it too. It goes right along with just about every other commercial where whites and blacks are involved. White = failure, loser, antagonist. Black = Successful, Winner, Protagonist. This is pretty much the boiled down formula.

no me neither. I remember seeing it a couple of times before this thread and race never came to mind.
Not me - I saw absolutely nothing in the commercial that was even remotely racist.

I pay attention to stuff like this. It's part of the "We simply cannot survive without Democrat approval" nonsense.

How do you explain the white guy who was the "boss" who was going to be interviewing the black guy for a job? How is he a "failure, loser, antagonist"?

Gee, those subliminal racists at the University of Phoenix are dumb.

Ok I dont get it. But I do hire former Marines and IU grads whenever I get a chance to help select. That is a fact.

Sorry, but I didn't see anything racist about it. What am I missing?

That's why I said it's "a bit racist". They can't go over the top with this stuff, or it'll alienate the lion's share of their revenue. No, this is strictly political.

I'm afraid you're just seeing boogeymen where they don't exist.
You're a good Democrat, lizzie. You may not believe that, but it's true. I see the blue inside you. ;)
