Now that the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) has accepted a $25 million donation from Charles and David Koch, at least one Ivy League professor is worried sick and a bunch of leftists have taken to Twitter to express their rage.
Marybeth Gasman, a higher education professor at the University of Pennsylvania claimed that the UNCF a charitable organization dedicated to helping black people get college degrees is wrong to accept this particular $25 million to help black people get college degrees, according to Inside Higher Ed.
Gasman bellowed that Koch organizations have been deeply affiliated with the Tea Party. She alleges that Tea Party leaders want to weaken the political interests of black Americans.
Inside Higher Ed suggests that the wrath about the $25 million gift arises because critics worry that the scholarships will favor students who share the largely conservative and libertarian principles of Charles and David Koch.
The plan for the $18.5 million UNCF/Koch Scholars Program is to provide tuition assistance to exemplary students with demonstrated financial need and an interest in the study of how entrepreneurship, economics, and innovation contribute to well-being for individuals, communities, and society.

How dare you, Koch Brothers!
Don’t you know every black person is supposed to be a Democrat? Those that aren’t are “Uncle Toms.” Ask Clarence Thomas.
I find it disgusting the assumption that all blacks must be left wing democrats, forever consigned to life with their hands out asking, “Please sir, may I have some more?”
“She alleges that Tea Party leaders want to weaken the political interests of black Americans.”
Code words for “help blacks get off the liberal Democrat plantation”, which they will not allow.
The Koch brothers are giving this money to the United Negro College Fund apparently without any strings attached about how the money should be used. Would liberals have been happier if they had given this money to Al Sharpton’s or Jesse Jackson’s scam organizations that enrich Sharpton and Jackson and do little to actually help minorities?
If the Koch brothers really wanted to make the lefts head explode, start an organization called “The Underground Railroad” designed to help Blacks and other minorities escape the democrat plantation through education.
...will favor students who earned it...
I though this was a satire story from the Semi-News satire site. Hannity and others ran with it.
This article underscores this observation:
THE MOST BIGOTED PEOPLE IN AMERICA TODAY ARE LIBERALS OF ALL COLORS OF THE SKIN.
“United Negro College”.......
Like the Ebony magazine, that’s racist.
The color of money is green.
exemplary students with demonstrated financial need and an interest in the study of how entrepreneurship, economics, and innovation contribute to well-being for individuals, communities, and society.
What? No degrees in gender studies?
The Democrat masses are skewered that the Nigras, as LBJ called them, will leave their plantation. How dare they act as though they can make it in this world without their Democrat owners.
Hard to tell the difference between satire and reality these days. It’s real!
Would liberals have been happier if they had given this money to Al Sharptons or Jesse Jacksons scam organizations that enrich Sharpton and Jackson and do little to actually help minorities?
...in a word, yes...
Dick Cheney gave $8,000,000 to a Charity helping Black Children’s Education in D.C.
Remember, this is the same Dick Cheney that supported Gay Marriage years ago when Obama and Biden were still Haters.
Liberalism is a mental disorder.
Well, one can’t argue with brilliant, intellectual, really-really smart,
Those Koch brothers are evil, possibly-gun-loving, bible-thumping,
Christan morons and one has to protect the revolution from such people.
See? Ya know?
Gasman bellowed that Koch organizations have been deeply affiliated with the Tea Party.
Lady you need to get of the college campus occasionally.
I personally know several black folk that are members of the Tea Party.
