This Clueless Meme Has The Internet FURIOUS About Their Student Loans

in Left Wing Nation/Social Media by

Maybe you’ve seen this meme floating around Facebook. It’s been shared over 1,600 times since you left for work Friday morning. It’s a condensed screen cap from an article posted on Business Insider about a young woman who had a unique method of paying off more than $200K in student loans: She had everything she needed handed to her by her family while she did nothing but pay off her loans.

“If I can do it, anybody can.”

I think you can see why this post was shared so many times — it’s ridiculous. The vast majority of people will never have (a) a job handed to them by their parent, (b) a freaking HOME handed to them by their parent, or (c) the option to just live with extended family rent-free while renting out their gift home for the equivalent of a whole extra monthly income. In fact, that extra income was enough to buy more rental properties, which made more money, all while simultaneously making payments on her student loans to the tune of $10,000 per month.

For some reason, the subject of the story, Ebony Horton, thinks this is normal. The author of the article apparently thinks it’s normal. Obviously Business Insider, whose CEO used to work on Wall Street until he was charged with securities fraud, thinks this is normal.

The internet helpfully set them all straight:

Kind of reminds you of that time the Tyrant of the Tone-Deaf described the start-up money his dad gave him:

It has not been easy for me, it has not been easy for me. And you know I started off in Brooklyn, my father gave me a small loan of a million dollars.

It’s never been more apparent that there really are two Americas. . . We just hope unbridled capitalism doesn’t crush us before we get out from under the loans we were told we needed to get, for the degree we haven’t used yet, in the America that only gives a shit about people who can afford rental properties.
