Sunnubian I'm glad that you mentioned the money issue. White pollsters keep telling us that we have all these billions of dollars, BUT fact is we don't have access to it because most of it is tied up in banks, bills and credit. All of which belong to the white man. At the end of the day we don't actually have the cash or capital on hand to save Morris Brown or any other HBCU if we needed to.

Re: With foreclosure looming Morris Brown College on the brink

But, if Morris Brown needs $30Million to be saved and there are well over 40Million African Americans, that means each of of giving at least $1.00 would be enough to save the College. I all of us would donate a dollar a year to educational programs and HBCUs, that would be at least $40Million going toward community education programs and the HBCUs annually, and if we would donate a dollar per month . . . (Personally, I know that it's a long shot, but, hey )

I do think the problem with this is....black people need to know that they were not the only slaves. They were the LAST slaves. Black folks need to know seriously that the Arab slavers were enslaving people way before they came to Egypt. Arabs were selling "white" slaves to Europe not only as the result of the Black Plague-that killed half of Europe but for the sex market. Many think the initial slave was there for labor...not true.
