I’d do the same. Harvard has billions in its endowments, it they want to increase their “black street cred” they need to pay up or else....
Selling historical documents for money is perfectly legal. Calling this man names, that he is envious and greedy, is absurd in the extreme. He sounds like a capitalist who is demanding a fair price for finding treasure.
“McDonald apparently is so consumed by greed and envy that he would rob posterity of these documents.”
Bull. Harvard must get realistic, though that’s probably asking too much.
the Chicago way.........
He needs to get some business advice from the family of MLK. but that would cost him BIG $$$$.
One appraiser said the documents were worth $65,000. Harvard offered $7,500. If they are “priceless”, then Harvard can afford to offer the appraised price, and stop trying to take advantage of the guy.
people are consumed by the idea of money
the idea that if he simply donated them in an honorable fashion say with a ceremony that the unseen hand of God would reward him
BS; their endowment fund has billions. They just won’t spend it. There is no reason for their tuition to be where it is.
Gee, they’ve been missing for hundred years and somehow life has gone on? F him. Burn ‘em.
Use them for toilet paper.
from a looted home....think jail
He’s not going to burn the papers. That would be the same as burning money.
If he doesn’t succeed in extorting money from Harvard, he will try something else.
He needs to be talking to some high-end auction houses.
Guess they're not goose-pimple inducing enough for any of them to reach into their own pockets for a change.
Who cares? If he is the legal owner then burn them. His threats prove that they have no meaning other than money to him as a black. Why should anyone else care? It’s all about ‘mo money’ anyway, it always is.
Why don’t someone just get in touch with Obama? I heard he can have historical documents made.
When I look at the following link:
I read where Harvard offered him $7,500 for one document (the Diploma) that appraised at $65,000. I wouldn’t threaten to burn them, I’d send them to Christie’s for auction and never give Harvard another chance to buy them. Harvard apparently thought he should just give them the papers for almost nothing.
Where does McDonald live? I’d like to mail him some marshmellows. Go for it, man! Cut off your greedy nose to spite your face. Burn, baby, burn.
