Reply TheMagache says: June 9, 2016 at 2:35 am Wow he saved for 5 years and is able to pay for college? No shit, that easy eh? Sounds kind of familiar. Probably because I paid for my own college with money I earned myself while growing up. Where are my fans?

There are plenty of people from ALL walks of the socioeconomic spectrum who could benefit from your drive. Keep up the good work son… Reply jacky lin says: June 13, 2016 at 5:34 am This is one of reasons why Western people are more successful than Asian people. In Asia, parents always force their children into studying, and their children will be a machine, only know how to study. Reply T T says: August 13, 2016 at 5:27 pm Wow….AMAZED!!!! Reply Michael J McCurdy says: August 20, 2016 at 5:07 pm Socialist freeloaders need to man-up and work hard like this guy. Reply Copperti Quickcopper says: August 30, 2016 at 5:16 pm He is a legend! Reply Jason Pelish says: September 9, 2016 at 5:24 pm A young man built out of the right stuff. Kudos to the mom, true, but she was working with some ideal material, you have to admit. Reply Edward Shenk says: September 10, 2016 at 11:51 am This! We need MORE of this. BLM take notes. Pull up your f*cking trousers, tuck your shirt in, fasten a belt around your waist, and tie your shoe laces. Then take notes from this young man. Be that, and trust me, all your self-created problems will go away. Reply Craig TheSchmeg says: September 25, 2016 at 3:43 pm Liberal worms quivering like little girls over some black kid delivering news papers. Really? Black people need to wake up and see their white liberal masters for the race baiting racists they are. Reply Dusty Nesmith says: October 23, 2016 at 12:16 am Good for him for aiming high, but this is such right wing propaganda blaming the rest of the black community for being lazy. Do the math and this the money is still only enough to cover tuition for a bachelor's degree (which isn't good enough for a good job) and doesn't factor in many of the other costs of living. I worked my way through college and paid for it myself, making more than this kid earned. I still ended up in debt primarily because I had to take out loans to factor in cost of living expenses. I think that a lot of right wingers don't understand that some people don't have their parents to help them with food and housing and transportation after they move out if they have that even before they move out. This is an example of how people can't empathize.

Reply I Am Sent me says: June 11, 2017 at 3:56 pm Lets see now, you make about 12 cents per paper! That means he sold about 1,800 Sundays papers every week, working one day a week, and did it in 5 years Someone is trying to get us on the corners selling newspapers! I don't believe it! What I think they're trying to say is, if he did it you can too! Tell you what, try doing this in ANY major city and you'll be robbed and killed. By the way, I own prime real-estate in Dubai that's for sell; when my private jet lands in Paris I'll holla' at you… Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
