Yeah, I saw this on CNN a few hours ago. What struck me is how every person in the class appeared to be black.
Don't get me wrong, I think what this billionaire's did is a good thing... But it kind of just blew my mind seeing an entire class of university students that were exclusively black people.
It was kind of like wow! Full blown segregation is still alive and strong in some parts of the first world.

What about the students who did what they could to graduate loan free? The reward for their hard work has just been negated by this inequitable act of charity.
I'm glad to see billionaires reinvesting in the community; doubly glad to see it within the black community.
But 40 million for a billionaire is a drop in the bucket; and the inequitable way he chose to be charitable smacks of publicity stunt.
