After receiving 40 million in money, Howard is trending and black jealousy has seeped in. The comments are the accumulation of $117 million to Howard, Morehouse and Spelman between them raises the question, why Howard's facilities are literally falling apart and need major renovations, why Morehouse continue to operate in the red, and why Spelman still doesn't have AC in their dorms. These are comments by other HBCUs students and alumni. Those are some truthful questions in where is the money going.


that's all...   :shrug:

I agree that there is perhaps some jealousy there, but I DO wish SOME PHILANTHROPIST would change the paradigm and give our other schools a chance to do something "transformational".

Howard got the money in honor of toni Morrison a Howard alumnus who taught Ms. Scot in college. She can spend her money any way she please.  The alumni who are bitching need the write a check to there school instead of spending it on "stuff".

Didn't LeMoyne Owen get  $40M donation?  There were other high dollar donations to HBCUs in the last few months that got no traction on social media.

I want to say more but will decline for now.

Co-signing.  Regardless of amount, if HBCU alums would only consistently give, a difference could be seen.

Ken, I wholeheartedly agree with you that our alumni needs to start GIVING, instead of, BICKERING about other people's money. When these topics come up, it just doesn't look good for us to simply show support.

that's all...

While I don't think it's cool to take "sour grapes" to a VERY public, non-nuanced forum like TWITTER, I think it's valid (and not necessarily "bitching") to raise concerns about awareness.  BUT, at the end of the day, people spend their money where they please.  And I totally agree that more alumni should give regularly as they can to our institutions...



Jarrett raises some good points here.

 ::)  Well, let them roast on.  That energy does nothing for their own alma maters. Nothing at all. 
May as well pass gas... Same results.  ::)

When I was at Howard I was told to give 100 dollars per years graduated   so if you graduated from Howard 10 years ago you would send $1000

Same Black Twitter HBCU members bragging about joining a "superconference" and on the way to becoming a Power Five in blackface. Yet whine about the same schools getting donations and dont give sh*t back to their schools. :tiptoe:
