if I did demand a certain buyer purchase it and the buyer said well we really are not interested but I’ll give you 10% and I said then I’ll burn it, whadya bet they would say hey, it’s yours to do with what you want go right ahead?

the dude has no right to try to force a particular buyer to pay his price

obviously, Harvard isn’t interested

According to the radio story earlier this morning. When the man made it known what he posessed, Harvard approached him...They said they really wanted the documents and diaries...They have been in discussion over this for some time. There is more to the story than just this lame piece from American Thinker...
I don’t blame the man...he purcheased the house and all its belongings...The papers were there and are now his property...If Harvard wants them like they claim and they approached him, he can ask any price he wishes or do with them as he wishes... It’s what is known as private property rights.

Fool’s gold. Inherently worthless. Only value comes from someone who says the first black guy’s paperwork is worth something. When this fascination with black history as such is over, the papers will again be worthless. Better get what he can get while the getting’s good.

Collector’s items are only worth what someone else will pay for them. Plenty of beanie baby owners figuring that out the last couple years...

Really?? WTF?? Says who? He may fail to get his price, but to say he has no right to try? Sheesh.
