Black college students really can’t catch a break. They graduate, on average, with $7,400 more in student loan debt than white grads — and then that gap triples over the following years, according to a new report from the Brookings Institution.

Four years after graduation, the difference between what white and black grads owe widens to $25,000, the researchers found, precisely at the time when students should be flourishing in the workforce and beginning to pay the loans down.

While white graduates owe about $28,000 after four years, black degree holders owe more than $52,700 on average, the study showed.

But please “tell everyone how much I loved being Ed’s wife.” She said “this show is my Swan song”, she loved it.
Ed and I always referred to [it as] I was his wife and she was his second wife and so he would leave and I’d say ‘oh you’re going off to your second wife’ and then she’d call and she goes 'I’m sending him home.’
