Excellent article as usual!!! 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾. I have felt this way since forever. Yes, please do give to HBCUs but STOP saying you’ve done more for Black people than anyone else. And if going to Abraham Lincoln (whose credit for emancipation was not due him being a benevolent president like history has been re-written to suggest) he missed HUNDREDS of years of accomplishments by civil rights groups since then. This is one of the best articles I’ve read on openly addressing what he has done in contrast to the negative affects his continuing actions have on our community. You are brilliant and I’ll be sharing this article with my friends and family. THANK YOU!!!
