This doesn't surprise me. . . and I dont think it bothers me. But that
is probably because I am already hip. I know a ploy when I see one. I
know when its all about PR when I see it. I mean, yes, they donate to
UNCF but then they also donate to politicians that vote to cut public
assistance of all kind (food, housing, healthcare, etc), politicians
that fight to minimize the "minority" voter turnout (and/or increase
general disenfranchisement), politicians that generally don't have the
general well-being of anyone but their donors and members of their
immediate family, or politicians that want to cut pell grants or roll
back the GI bill or cute veteran benefits.
I already know that
whenever someone says they or their interests are racist this press
release will be trotted out. I mean, they bought a wing in the
Smithsonian natural history museum in DC, doesn't mean they actually
believe in evolution OR that they want it to be taught in schools. They
just like to see their names on things.
problem will be the uninformed, underinformed that will think "oh they
did this thing one time for black people, I like them so I will vote for
whoever they support ". lol.
