    1 Of The Biggest Polluters On The Planet In The #KochBrothers Have Polluted The Minds Of Some Blacks Who Think Dirty Funding HBCUs Is Better
    5:55 PM - 7 Jun 2014

    ***SNIP

    Political commentator Julianne Malveaux asked if UNCF “made a deal with the devil” by signing black students’ lives over to the Kochs. She compared the donation to the Los Angeles NAACP chapter accepting donations from Don Sterling, the embattled L.A. Clippers owner who was recorded making racist comments.

    In an op-ed in Inside Higher Ed, Marybeth Gasman, director of the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for Minority Serving Institutions, argues that UNCF should give the money back. The UPenn professor wrote the 2007 book Envisioning Black Colleges: A History of the United Negro College Fund, and has served on a number of UNCF-related advisory boards, including that of the Frederick D. Patterson Research Institute, whose research UNCF cites in justifying the need for the scholarship donation.

    Meaning, Gasman is well aware that UNCF is in such dire straits lately that it has had to deny nine out of 10 scholarship applicants due to financial constraints. She still opposes the Koch contribution.

    “Yes, $25 million is alluring and could be used to help black students,” Gasman wrote. “However, the costs are too high. … The Koch brothers have given huge amounts of money to Tea Party candidates who oppose many policies, initiatives, and laws that empower African Americans.”
    So they'll let their hatred of a family who gives billions to charities that help people, keep poor black kids from earning scholarships to college? If that's the mindset of the leftists then I think UNCF should give the money back and the Koch's can figure out another way to give scholarships to poor black kids who want to go to college.

    1. Buying votes. Pure and simple. Plus, a nice charitable deduction.

    3. Chump change to make them appear to not to be at the forefront of a race war.

    It's like they set fire to an African-American's house, then once fully in flames, they show up with a dixie cup full of water to help.

    City Council members rip Walmart’s charity of ‘dangerous dollars’

    A key bone of contention is the Waltons’ support of New York City charter schools. Since 2004, the Walton Family Foundation has funneled $16 million into the cause, including the DREAM Charter School, Village Academies and the Success Academy founded by Eva Moskowitz.
    Liberals hate poor people and minorities. They only want the government to control their lives.

    Hell. give it to the UWPCF (United White People's College Fund)

    oh wait. That doesn't exist. It would be racist to have an organization that exists to service a particular race of people.

    Because the Koch family believes in personal generosity, not forced redistribution of wealth.
