RE: Parents, students on edge over soaring tuition, By Donna Gordon Blankinship, Associated Press, February 1, 2010

Regarding the above article from the Associated Press…

This article mentions steep tuition hikes for college students in America, particularly Florida. What it fails to mention is that college students in America are increasingly less American (especially white American males). Minorities, particularly immigrants (legal and non-legal) and student visa holders can gain access to millions via the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) applications and are pushing out white American students.

A comparable situation in Florida is the housing/rental markets... where HUD subsidies allow renters to charge egregiously high monthly rental rates because the minority residents get most of their rents, regardless of the cost, paid through HUD.

Needless to say, the high rents become unaffordable for non-minorities who have no access to the subsidies.

"Fled From Florida" writes that he lived in Florida from 2000-2009 and was forced out by an unfortunate combination of the economic collapse, illegal alien takeovers, and the super high cost of living—especially housing: "I actually planned my escape in 2007, and consider myself lucky I was able to get out with no complications. When I moved to Florida in 2000, everybody was trying to get in— when I left, everybody was trying to get out!"
