Should students get government assistance to attend school for subjects like African-American Studies?
I think helping people who can actually create something or jobs later down the line should such as engineers, mathematicians, doctors, businessmen/women but not this. One Al Sharpton is enough.

The problem is that specifying certain subjects would increase government interference in education.

Of course they should. If help is available it should be across the board and available to everyone.

No of course not. Not everyone who majors in subjects like African-American studies actually needs assistance. You are assuming that anyone who would want to study that subject is African-American and/or poor and can't afford college. That is a pretty narrow-minded and unintelligent assumption.

People should be allowed to study anything that they want to study. However, any major followed by the word studies really does not prepare you for a specific job. It is therefore not a good choice if you are looking for a good job, but you still should have the right to study it.
