|UM - not a McRendang university|
I like to teach the world to sing
We have become an urban society and seeing decay all over. We are in need of more universities that must not isolate themselves from the critical analyses of urban issues. My years studying at Columbia University – riding the Metro Bus and NY City subway daily to 116th and 120th streets on Broadway - is an entire education in itself. From the George Washington Bridge to Wall Street one could see and feel America's First, Second, Third and Fourth worlds – all in a Manhattan stretch. From the streets of Harlem to the real estates of Donald Trump onto Battery Park, you could see how much capitalism has "trickled down."
