I agree. Requiring a college degree for this is unnecessary. This isnt like NASA requiring a degree in Mathematics or similar to work with them. But why use the race card? Everything has to be about race and everybody is a racist or part of a racist institution trying oppress minorities. Please dont have such a low view of us!
