Recently during the pandemic crisis, there has been a lot of change for the better and worst. Millions of people have become unemployed during this period, but some people have started their own business from losing their job and has had success in this way. People have lost their homes and love ones due to COVID-19 and today, it has not changed much.

President Joe Biden was elected into office when the world was at a complete low due to the virus. Even though President Joe Biden knew the challenges he would face becoming president in these times, he has taken the challenges head on. He has planned to bring America back up to a better place by providing jobs, free child care, free college, and more.

According to joebiden.com, “Biden believes this is no time to just build back to the way things were before, with the old economy’s structural weaknesses and inequalities still in place. This is the moment to imagine and build a new American economy for our families and the next generation.” For all the millions of people that support President Biden this has given them hope for a better future to come.

Joe Biden’s “Build Back Better” funding agenda is planned to create jobs, cut taxes, and lower costs for working families. The wealthiest and largest corporations will pay their fair share in taxes. "Build Back Better" is a promise to provide free higher education to the public that will grant funds for two years of community college. The plan also originally had a large sum of money set out for historically black colleges and universities but it was recently cut back significantly.

In the article, "Georgia congressional Democrats, students call for more federal HBCU support" by GPB, states, “President Biden’s proposed $45

billion for educational institutions including HBCUs has been downsized to $2 billion in the House’s version of reconciliation legislation...This will leave more work to do to make lasting investments in HBCU infrastructure.”

This funding is crucial for HBCUs because it is typically used for textbooks, employee salaries, improving facilities, and to purchase supplies.

As stated by GPB, “HBCUs provide excellent education for students, we just need more resources so that we can have first-class, not only dorms, but first-class science labs, and math, and fine arts,' State Senator Gail Davenport said. 'So we need all of these things, but we need funding. You can see that some of the foundations are giving money, but we need the government to step in to help us.”

The budget cuts have greatly devastated the black community. People are even questioning Joe Biden’s true intentions when it comes to the black community.
