  19. Honey Lips Louis Says:

    I got the illest new ponzi scheme out there for all you brothers that don’t like work (raise your hand.)

    It’s called “PhD program.”

    Basically all these schools are under pressure to attract more black and Latino PhD candidates.

    All you need is a 4 year degree from anywhere and then apply.

    As your concentration, pick an obscure academic area with racial overtones like “Black Civil Rights History in the 1950s.”

    Then pick a ridiculously obscure topic nobody has ever researched before, like “Huey Newton at Merritt College – His Formative Years a Revolutionary.”

    They will give you a stipend, living expenses, travel expenses to Oakland to complete research, everything.

    And you can literally be a student forever.

    At the five year mark, if they start to harass you, just find a Black professor and tell him you feel targeted and that the research is taking a long time because it’s going to be extraordinary and it will give you a lease for another two or three years, easy.

    Then in 2020 either present whatever you have or drop out and get a real job.

    Plus you get to teach seminar classes and fuck your students in seminar classes.

    Easily the best ponzi scheme of all time.
