"This year FAFSA said my parents were expected to give me $7000. My parents gave me $0."

Rebecca Harrelson is a first-generation college student and a senior at UNC-Greensboro, where she studies Sociology and English. Rebecca, who plans to graduate in May 2016, already has $32,869 in student debt, and this year took out private loans in addition to government loans in order…

shout out to EVERYBODY ELSE going through the same SHIT that the fucking government doesn’t seem to give a fuck about…

meanwhile, we’ve almost spent a billion dollars bombing isis.

there’s never money for shit that matters, but money always magically appears when war is involved.

FAFSA is the devil. Even when I had an EFC of 0, I still was forced to contribute thousands towards my tuition both community college and university

Then they had the nerve to change the requirements from $32,000 to $23,000 to have an EFC of 0. Most adults make around $30,000 plus.

Therefore my EFC went from 0 to 414. I now have to figure out a way to finish my degree with less financial aid. 

Almost $40,000

Sounds like every student wish we could do this nation wide walkout

I’m not sure what difference walking out will make & this girl is actually luck as fuck that she’s only had to take out bank loans one year

29 year old #CharlesSmith was killed by police in #Savannah, GA yesterday while handcuffed. Savannah is mobilizing.

Savannah residents seeking answers in the death of #CharlesSmith. Autopsy scheduled for today. This is one version of the event circulating on Twitter.

The first thing they put out about him after he was killed was he was a rapper who “glamorized violence” and all they could emphasize was his “troubled past.” They put up a picture of him that made him seem hard, but never bothered to put up a sweet one up like this. Meanwhile, some white guy down the street from me in the same city beats his wife to death and he was just “mentally unstable.” He is still alive. 

The night Charles was killed, I had to call pop a lock and a drunk man came out of nowhere and made the pop a lock guy freak out, so he called the cops. About 2 cop cars came just to subdue the man (who was Mexican and wasn’t really causing any trouble. I tried to speak to him in Spanish so he could understand better and I kept calmly telling him to please go home. I felt so bad when they put him in the car. The cops just laughed it off.) The cops questioned me about what happened and were talking about how dangerous Savannah was that night and that they had to kill someone. All they did was laugh.

Savannah is known for this. Police brutality is rampant here. Troy Davis walked these same streets that led him to his fate. All they do is laugh.
