Squad member Rep. Ayanna Pressley might have said more about this somewhere else, or maybe she’ll hold a news conference later or issue a press release that explains the thinking here. We thought they were already pushing it when they claimed that climate change was a racial justice issue, but student debt?
Student debt cancellation is a racial justice issue.

In that case I'm against it.

Does anyone have any literature on this? Would love to learn more on the connection between student debt and racial justice.

Can you please share the demographic data that shows who holds the student loan debt in this country?

No, it is not. Focus should be on lowering the costs of college tuition for all.

We agree completely, and can’t help but notice that tweet came from a proud Elizabeth Warren Democrat — the same Elizabeth Warren who made $429,981 in salary from Harvard during 2010 and 2011 for teaching two classes, according to PolitFact.
Justice is people paying their fair share of the loans they took out – 100 percent plus interest.

Is everything a racial justice issue? Not this one. It impacts all sorts of people.

Wait, which way?
Like, I'm pretty sure it would actually on net benefit well-off Caucasian Americans at the expense of African Americans and Hispanics, but Rep. Pressley seems not the type to acknowledge that. https://t.co/Iug7fhQ72E

It'd be easier if you share a list of things that are not, according to you, racial justice issues. https://t.co/XK69u43bWe

Student debt is a choice, not a requirement. I worked my way through school, there’s no reason anyone else can’t – regardless of skin tone.

Actually it's an ethics and character lesson. They took the loan. They have to pay for it. The borrower is responsible for it.

It's also a step closer to socialism. People "get" on the backs of others.

i want my money back from 40 years ago plus interest.

We guess making it a racial issue is the way to fast-track things in a Biden administration.
