Can someone tell me why one of America's most revered historically black colleges has to beg for change to get the water cut back on?
This weekend a rally was held to help Morris Brown College collect money to pay for a $380,000 water bill.
The school collected a paltry $70,000 toward the water bill. Water service was shut off by the city of Atlanta last week for non-payment and the 127-year-old college is about $30 million in debt.
One of the school's building's is scheduled for foreclosure on Jan. 6.
The school's 400 students are currently out on break. But if the water isn't cut back on when they return to classes next week, the school may be forced to shut down.
Where are the Morris Brown alumni with their checkbooks?
Where are the local celebrities who drive $400,000 cars and make it rain on them h*s every weekend?
This is shameful! You have selfish people like Sean Combs willing to pay the city of New York $1 million to paint the New Year's Eve ball purple to promote liquor -- but he can't reach into his pockets to save a historically black college?
Obviously there is gross mismanagement of funds by the board members if the school is $30 million in debt.
I'll have more insider information on this mess tomorrow
