  1. That campus is an oasis amongst the heart of chicagos most dangerous areas of the south side.
    The police presence there is already astounding. Wonder what it’s gonna look like now.

  2. I have an idea why don’t you just give these people their degrees and send them out in the world to find a job without experience or education, but they have degree. Then these people will say we are racist because they can’t do their jobs for lack of education, but they still want to remain hired.
