Koch Brothers’ Donation Will Help Black Students
We want to share this heartfelt piece written by our leader, Kent Matlock in support of our client Koch Industries, Inc. and their investment in the future of young people. The piece was published in the Atlanta Journal Constitution August 11, 2014.
The recent $25 million grant to the United Negro College Fund from Koch Industries and the Charles Koch Foundation has generated comments and opinions, many of which are, at best, politically motivated and, at worst, hate-fueled. Such assertions have hijacked the intelligent dialogue we should be having about what does and doesn’t work in preparing our young people for their futures. An Associated Press article in the AJC, “Black colleges face hard choices over $25M gift: Liberals say the Koch Brothers are pursuing a racist political agenda” (News, July 28), is a perfect example.
