"Larry Ellison Bill and Melinda Gates, Jeff Bezos. Bezos notably has not signed the pledge. After that. She was as usual out of the public eye, she says, you know, opposites attract, and she and Jeff were opposites. He liked to be very public. Well with people She liked to be very private. And outside of the fact that she write. I don't know what voice cracks. She had a couple of books published. They've got. They've got four kids. I don't know what they're doing in terms of custody or even how old they are. But I don't think they're they're older than teenagers, if at all. So one of the things that is interesting about the way McKenzie Scott has decided to give away this money is sort of Going around the usual setting up of a foundation the deep and and lengthy vetting of grant applicants and determining How the money is to be used and having your fingers on all of the money that you're giving out. She just seems to be one of those who just wants to just cut a check. Do it. I think you have a good organization. Do with this money. What you will Jorge Valencia runs a non profit point foundation and offer scholarships and mentoring toe LGBTQ X Y Z students. When the campus is shut down due to Corona virus, they tried to find a place a safe place for those students to stay. Then, when the George Floyd protests gathered strength, the organization announced new scholarships for LGBTQ students of color. And who are worried about shifting to online fundraising from in person events. Would donors be generous when many of them are losing jobs? There was an article in a prominent philanthropy publication, a detailed how nonprofits led by non whites receive less grant money and more scrutiny than others. And Jorge reads this, and he gets even more nervous. Well, then, in early July, he gets a weird email from someone claiming to work for an unnamed philanthropist requesting a call. Says for a fairly small organization like ours. We have 15 employees. You become a little suspicious, like is this one of those send money? Do whatever scams so he gets a call. Ah, He lives in North Hollywood, by the way, so he's right around the corner and he sits down, the caller told tells him the point foundation. His group was going to get a major gift, one of the largest did had ever received. From Mackenzie Scott. Now he didn't tell the writer of this article. How much it wass. He says he cried, though he cried upon hearing the amount Now. In July, Scott announced that she had given away $1.7 billion of her money to 116 organizations, including Jorge Sze Point Foundation. And while not every group was publicizing how much the general range from those that were gifted. Somewhere between three and $40 million apiece. So this is unusual because first of all, when they were married, the Bezos family was not considered the most philanthropic group. I guess you could say in the Seattle area, they were sort of I think the way they were described as some non hometown givers. But a bigger concern, according to some critics who just want to be a holes about all of this thing. Is that the source of Mackenzie Scots money through Amazon. Is actually tainted and that she owes the public that money back. Basically a guy named Anon Garrett harder surface. Was the author of a book called Winners Take all And she said, he says. Annan says that money was made through tax avoidance, wage theft union busting driving workers into the ground at every turn. And Anon says the most important thing she could do is make sure she's pushing for the kind of structural systemic changes that would make it impossible for a fortune like hers to ever arise. Again. There is a scene in one of her novels called Traps about the four women whose lives intersect in the desert, where a movie star who's become reclusive after her father sells her out to the tabloids. Thinks about thes security apparatus it takes to make her life possible. The actresses trying to feel like a regular person driving herself around, but this creates more work for the guards have to protect her. And as the writer wrote it up in media or for medium It's hard not to picture Mackenzie in her car eyes flicking at the rear view mirror Security guards ready to protect into pounds. Questioning interactions, avoiding public enquiries. Thinking about howto give away a near oppressive amount of money to correct an unjust society that her wealth helped shape. And trying to create her for herself. The one thing money cannot buy, which is just a normal life. Well, remember, she and she's in a position now where even with 4% of of the stake and Amazon, like I said she had announced the $1.7 billion gift on a Tuesday By Friday. The stock prices have gone up so much that it Made up for anything she'd already given away itself. Yeah, so dis and this is one of those things. I mean, there's a way that you look at it. She didn't. She didn't seek this wealth. I mean, she It was not her brainchild. It was her husband's. It sounds like not that she didn't do the work and doesn't deserve half. That's what I'm saying. But her dream was to be a writer. Her dream wasn't to be a multi, wasn't to be a multi billionaire. To be in a position where she could give away billions and billions of dollars and then turn around and sneeze and have it replaced in her stock value. So all right.

How are we not even looking a little bit to somebody like that to say like, could you give up just like a couple billion brand just tossed back how about this? Like Hey, asshole. You made thirteen billion in one day. Okay. We're GONNA take that day from you. Yeah just. Eat that. Sorry. Sorry. You only worked or didn't really work but you eggs your bank account existed for only three hundred, sixty, four days this year. Yeah. I mean his wife donated one point five, billion dollars to Black lives matter charity and like two days later she had already replaced that just with gains from Amazon stock growth like just in Yahoo Days Yeah. Yeah. That's yeah. So that's the thing. So when you look at what we do like, yeah, we have all these people that are hoarding wealth. It's not going back into the economy it's not eight from. Does not accessible to people who are trying to enter a new social economic socio economic class. It's just not there because they're sitting on it, and if we don't have the kind of leaders who are going to actually sort of clearly look at that as an issue and say, yeah, the problem is there are too few people with all the money so. Sorry. We're going to have to you have to run that we need be on. Yeah. Yeah. Is that not any indication anybody that it's not based on anything also? If you can replace one point, five, billion dollars in a couple of days. Is that not clue in like this shit isn't really real. Read you know Mackenzie Scott.

"Compete and our? Population is more the order four to five times that compared to those other institutions. So very unique. Circumstance, very unique funding but does create you know sir. I would see some difficulty in terms of trying to juggle those finances without The same type of tuition B.'s revenue. As most of the institutions that have the plethora of offerings we have would usually be dependent on. When it comes to? Giving everyone that I know that attended Howard. University very proud to be Howard alone. Right But wonder what makes it so difficult to raise money when you have an alumni base? That is so proud and you have this long history and culture. What is it that complicates the giving I would say there are few things. One is. Most of the alarm of Howard give back into service in their community. And they see that service as ultimately giving back to how its mission. and. So if you look at my grads, a majority of them are in inner city neighborhoods, predominantly African American, where they are on any given week, really giving up your time on treasure, you know to those local issues. The second one is the disparity parody of wealth over time and the African committee persist. Might, to somebody who gets an MD from Howard. Is more likely to go into a neighborhood where he can serve that community but less likely to get paid as much as their counterparts in the ability to create generational wealth because of all the systemic racism and the infrastructure in the country impacts, everyone including African Americans with college degrees, and so you don't necessarily have that base to give back in and out of the thing is you know a community, we tend to give back to churches and those other causes we have not always made the strong case that. Back to educational institutions is just as critical and I think that there's a time now. For I to make that argument now, even before this big forty, million dollar gift, the CEO of Netflix and his wife made a a really similarly big donation to ABC's back in. June. and I wonder why we don't typically see that kind of giving to HPC's, is it a matter of people aren't educated about the mission? They're unaware or the the big name? Predominantly, white institutions are second up some of the energy. What do you think it is? I think it's a probably a combination of things. One is, do we get? In front of the right people to make the case where we have to get to be able to tell that story and I. Think this moment in time in our history has begun to open up the opportunity where people are more likely to listen not that we haven't been trying to tell the story people just probably has haven't been as empathetic to the story as I. Think, this moment has identified. I wonder how much of a barrier between the institution and givers with a lot of money? How much of a barrier has racism been? You know. It's a couple of things. I'm one. It's racism, but to be honest. We tend to associate with people who look like us have experiences federalists so. If, Mackenzie Scott goes to Princeton. You would expect Pinson to get that type of gift when to becomes wealthy. What she has done. What's unique about says that she's had experiences. That suggests that she wants to look more broadly at the society. Now, we must remember as well that she was a pupil of twenty miles. And she was super associate for twenty miles and rick means that she would have had a unique exposure Jonathan. Many people know that I. I didn't I didn't know that and I don't think a lot of people knew connects. Yeah, and that I'm sure would have impacted her a long way because if you've ever been around twenty months knows I've been you can't help but understand who passion. For people of color and so as she rest in peace, he probably also planted a seed towards that gift. So again, it brings a point that. Where two species that we can get people in to add can tell the story that can make that impression etc, and do it in somebody's people's lives the better. Obviously. Howard is among the top tier. HPCC's. Ride. The. Creme de. La Creme. and I wonder if some might think themselves. Wow. Will what about the Cheney's Lincoln's of the world? Maybe some smaller less well, footed. Could benefit more from gifts like this. How would you respond? You know, I see the. Age Be you ecosystem as a very heterogeneous system. We're not a monolithic group and you're right the different types of problems. Different types of resources needs a set of what I have tried to do in my rulers, President Howard Given Howard Statue.
