United Negro College Fund receives $25 million grant from the Koch brothers

The Political Agitator Response: Damn so this suppose to make it right? Hell how much have they spent on elections that could have gone to better use? SMDH! It would be ignant for the UNCF to not accept the funds. But to accept the funds and be ignant about the total picture. Well!

WASHINGTON (AP) — The United Negro College Fund announced a $25 million grant Friday from Koch Industries Inc. and the Charles Koch Foundation — a large donation from the conservative powerhouse Koch name that Democrats have sought to vilify heading into the 2014 midterm elections.

The UNCF, known for its iconic motto, “A mind is a terrible thing to waste,” supports historically black colleges and universities and provides scholarships.

From the donation, $18.5 million will go toward nearly 3,000 merit-based scholarships to African-American students, and $6.5 million will go toward general support for historically black colleges and universities and the UNCF. (Source: Read more)

Bergdahl? What Happened To No Man Left Behind?

Damn this is too good. Last week a couple of folks asked me what did I think about the Bergdahl saga? I said I didn’t know enough about it to comment. I always wait a couple of days to see what the media report and what others are saying about it. When I read somewhere about our President saying this is the end of a war and that is what we do. I also read somewhere that somebody said the motto for the military was “no soldier left behind.” What I found is damn how easy some who have been in the military were listening to those who have a problem with a black man having a title with power. Hell our President is the commander in chief, can’t he make some calls himself? Hell he can make them and it is up to us how we receive his call. The following below sums it up!
