I think this is an example of what Santorum is really speaking out against(as Springcurl said). Many minorities in this country really need higher ed beyond high school. Because if you don't get any, well, get ready to be painted as the scourge of the earth. Even WITH higher ed, you often still get characterized as trash (see: Barack Obama) and "the problem". All of these random rich people in the media are, guess what: white. So if you're going to sit there and pretend like this country is truly equal opportunity, please, get real. It's not.
And many people that think like Santorum are dying to have more housekeepers, gardeners, and other help that didn't go to college, free for the exploitation. So they can tell you how great you are and how they hope Jesus will bless you because you're "not like the others."
And that's when I turn to people of color and say: invest in yourself as much as you possibly can. Get as much education as you possibly can. This pretty Mark Zuckerberg-wannabe picture people paint is unfortunately not starring random black dude down the street. And please note: Mark Zuckerberg was at Harvard
when he dropped out and ran with Facebook....seriously? Some people aren't able.
