After a billionaire announced he would pay off student loan debt for Morehouse College grads, the comparisons to another billionaire were inevitable.

Robert F. Smith announced he would pay off student loans debt for the entire 2019 graduating class during his speech at the college's commencement ceremonies in Atlanta on Sunday.

The news rocketed around the Internet at warp speed after Morehouse students tweeted about Smith's generous gift.

Meanwhile, billionaire Oprah Winfrey also opened her purse for students at a Newark, NJ school last week.

Oprah Winfrey paid a surprise visit to West Side High School, where principal Akbar Cook started the Lights On program for children to hang out after school.

Oprah announced she was donating $500,000 to the program. She made the announcement to the packed gymnasium of screaming kids.

Cook keeps the lights on for the program with generous donations from people like Ellen DeGeneres, who donated $100,000. But Oprah's gift is the largest single donation to the school.

Still, some people think Oprah's efforts aren't enough.

Over the weekend, Oprah spoke at the University of Colorado commencement ceremony. Afterward, she posted a photo of herself with an excited graduate. She wrote that she "shook hands with all 571 members" of the graduating class and she gifted them with copies of her book The Path Made Clear: Discovering Your Life's Direction and Purpose.

But one follower thought she didn't do enough.

"Should have paid off their student debt," the follower wrote in Oprah's comments on Instagram.

Oprah had time to set the guy straight, writing, "already paid 13m in scholarships. Have put over 400 men through Morehouse."

The follower quickly deleted his comment, but Oprah's followers are still flooding her comments with praise and positivity.

    again I say FOH and you DO

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    People, start saving for your childrens education while they are in diapers and stay involved in their education to MAKE SURE they will be eligible for scholarships to the schools of their choosing!

  • Renee26

    LMAO Oprah had time today! I love it.... If anybody out of those almost 800 Morehouse men that these 2 have helped are looking to pay it forward I have $7k in loan debt remaining and would greatly appreciate the help!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I do believe that rich people in America should give more overall. Statistics show that charitable giving by millionaires and billionaires is relatively low compared to just everyday folks.
    But telling a specific rich people who to give their money to?.. not smart.

    Oprah has done more in the way of black education than probably all of of these black elitists put together. And where has Robert F. Smith, whose generational wealth will go to his white, much younger, former playboy bunny wife been all this time? Furthermore, I am sure the money to pay off these student loans isn’t going to come directly out of his pocket anyway.

  • Karen Brady

  • NeverSurprised

    People who don't even pay ther OWN CHILDREN'S tuition kill me trying to dictate what OTHERS should do with THEIR money. My son graduated college debt free because I wrote a tuition check each semester. How about parents start saving and investing (529 Plan) for their child's education as soon as the kid is born, because Oprah doesn't owe anyone a damn thing.

    Most people don't make enough money to save enough for college. How can someone making 35/40k a yr save $60-$200k per child. Scholarships aren't what they used to be. For most, loans are inevitable. Especially if you intend to go beyond a 4 yr degree.

  • Elecktra

    Good point, it’s not just about her giving but also that she has opened doors for so many others. I mainly appreciate Oprah because she is a preservator and teacher of black history. These snot nosed millennials on social media are so disrespectful and ignorant. They need to appreciate the elders who are paving the way and who are still alive to connect us to our history. When they are gone, who will represent-these mumble rappers?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    The loans aren't in default, so my credit score is bien. But I'm not stressing myself out about paying them...like at all. I did when I first graduated but then I realized almost everyone I know has them. I attended a conference and a prominent minority judge (in her late 50's) said she had just paid hers off within the last 3-4 years.

    Warren Buffet and Jeff Bezos aren't leaving any money to their children. Why? They've given them solid educations, the skills, and the seedling money to become self-made billionaires. They're donating their money to charities. Oprah is a billionaire and she's bragging about giving away a mere 13 million dollars in scholarships over 30 years but she owns a 250 million dollar home. Hmmm! Oprah could do more...much more...in America...Not South Africa. The dumbazz didn't even know American blacks came from West Africa...not South Africa.

Drag your children to Information sessions. Find them mentors, Peer Mentors and professional mentors. Encourage your kids to have diversity in their friendships. Join clubs that will foster diverse relationships, then become friendly with those parents!! basically GET OUT OF your own way and start making a way!!

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    when you hear about these kids getting millions in scholarships...they weren't all just given to them, they applied for them. They did the work. a Parent and child should begin researching grants and scholarship opportunities, the summer going into their senior year. If your child has a laptop and the internet it should be their summer job. 5 applications a week and more if you can manage. There are really no excuses anymore when it comes to education. There are very little hindrances, beyond a person's own will and discipline. IMO

    Parents also let their kids go where they want cause it’s their “Dream school”. My son isn’t going to go to a school that cost 60k a year just cause it’s his dream school. If he doesn’t earn enough scholarship money, he will be doing community college or smaller state school and then transferring. Plus we are in Georgia with HOPE so He definitely won’t bypass HOPE at UGA for debt at Bama or Florida.

    I have seen parents REFUSE to sign the student loans to a Dream school. Kid crying and everything. Kid thanked them for it 4 years later when she graduated with no debt and a job!!!

  • NeverSurprised

    Good for you!!

    When my company first started to become successful I met with various investment advisors. The first one was a young Jewish guy in his 30s.. He had two sons, 7 and 9, and he and his wife already had $60,000 in their kids' college funds.

    They started saving BEFORE the kids were born. Thereafter, every birthday, every holiday, every milestone in their kids' lives -- relatives were instructed to give MONEY, never toys. And every dime given was put DIRECTLY INTO THE COLLEGE FUNDS. . And he and his wife put money from their salaries into their kids'college funds every month, like clockwork. It quickly became second nature

    They would NEVER have thought of spending hundreds on sneakers or designer clothes -- not when they had college funds to think about. This is how OTHER groups behave; they exercise fiscal responsibility when they have kids. There is nothing stopping black folks from doing the same thing. Bravo to you for putting your child's economic future FIRST!

    Oprah definately rides for Morehouse. I love Smith for his donation, I just wish it was merit based. Some kids barely graduated (or majored in Art). What are the odds they will make life choices that will enable them to pay it forward? Kids like my son have no loans because parents made sacrifices or because they had full merit rides anyway. If the gift were merit based, it could've been preserved and spread across multiple years. Or, split with other HBCUs. Sadly, many of the less disciplined recipients/parents will run to buy new cars, not pay it forward.

Free.
    Oprah does enough. She didn't have to donate $500,000 she could have matched Ellen's $100K. But hey. Oprah knows this game, she don't need to prove her philanthropy.

  • J2PC

    Oftentimes, crooked school officials often sees such donations as a way to hire their cronies, purchase expensive office furniture, throw parties, give themselves a pay raise or their favorites scholarships. It seldom makes a world of difference to most poor students who could really use them.

    Whereas, the billionaire who paid off student loans for Morehouse grads was very specific with spending his donation. That is the difference!!

    Your child is so lucky to have a mother like who who could find the means to provide for his education. Unfortunately not every parent has the means or the know how to achieve that level of opportunity on behalf of their children. It is through their own ambition, desire and goal-oriented decisions that the children of such parents make the steps to enter college and cross that stage to get the degree.

    I find it shallow and assuming in a very marginal way to suggest that the students who majored in perhaps art or barely graduated won't be able to pay it forward, or that you suggest they are unworthy because of their degree of choice or station in life. Quite classist of you to say.

    You are footing on a site that posts pictures of people, places and things, those pictures are elements of art. When you look at a building it started as a work of art. The car you drive started as a picture someone drew. It is through the mind engulfing self expression of art that so many develop coping skills, share and mark their dreams, or draw the face (sketch) of a criminal to help a victim get justice. the clothes you wear started as a sketch.

    It isn't how fast someone runs the race that determines if they finish it but that they cross the finish law, however far it is that they are able to go or set for themselves and arrive at their destination.

    I have to wonder the meritoriousness of your education if you are so willing to stereotype college graduates as being so immature that they would take the money to buy cars. Which reasonably speaking is a life tool necessary for them to get back and forth to work. Student loans are more likely to send a student into bankruptcy than buying a car would, as the interest can be consolidate, compounded and before the new grad knows it they have tripled their debt.

    Unlike you, my billionaire friend, I'm these donors are intelligent enough to set in place structural guidelines that insure that the money is paid as it should be to keep the students out of debt. Perhaps you find these black billionaires to be too ignorant to now better. After all, you think the college grads are undeserving and too stupid to pay off the debt.

    By the way, why didn't your child get that coveted full scholarship instead of forcing you to be fiscally responsible for his education?

    Statistics my friend. It is widely known that certain majors are miserable returns on investments. It is also widely known that many students use loans for frivolous expenditures. Lastly, reading is fundamental. I said 'many' and 'some'. My statements are not absolute. And while I'm sure they will try to structure the gift across multiple years to avoid the 30k cap, not even billionaires can avoid the IRS.....ask Trump.

    He donated 1.5M to Morehouse earlier this year; which is why he was getting an honorary degree. That pledge was earmarked for scholarships and campus study areas. He's also donated 50M to Cornell (earmarked for blacks in engineering), he bought MLK birth home and donated it to a historic registry, he is the major donor to the DC black history museum, and he is the only black man to take Gates' giving pledge. The man is incredible.

    They’ve been wanting to do this. But I bet everything Nipsey was against it! So after he died, they went after his daughter’s mother. How disrespectful to his memory.

    Talking about a lamb in a lions’ den...

    Nipsey’s whole entire family, Lauren London and her interaccial Hollywood family and friends, LAPD and elected officials who were building with Nipsey, Lauren’s son’s dad Lil Wayne’s money and influence—ALL THAT POWER against one mom who Nipsey fell in love with and chose to procreate with and stayed friends and I believe lovers with until he died.

    Get it Oprah. I’m glad she had time to put that clown in check. I may not agree with everything she does but I have the upmost respect for Oprah’s commitment to education and higher learning. She is constantly giving back. The woman had an entire school built. I can only imagine all the money she’s given and donations she’s made on the low that no one even knows about.

  • Allihave2say

    Your commentary is too broadly spread and reads as an expression of jealous. Point. Period. The student loan debts have been incurred and the degrees secured. The offer is to pay for the loans. Now this is where reading comprehension becomes beneficial to you my friend.

    The loans are already in existence. The donor will pay off the loans for those whom have completed their degrees and their degrees conferred. They may set up an annual payment amount to minimize the gift taxes or other taxes related to such an extraordinary and extravagant gift of opportunity.

    The potential opportunity to misappropriate the funds in the manner that you suggest "some" or "many" may perform is rendered relatively impossible to insure. As once again, the debt was incurred prior to the offer and after the loans had been secured and used for their educations. Student loans are designed to meet whatever needs a student has while in the due course of obtaining a college degree of their choosing. It pays for housing, transportation, food, school supplies, gas, clothing or whatever the intelligent education seeking student has deemed appropriate for his or her life to complete their education. Again, your lucky star had you to do it for him/her. Not all of us have that opportunity but ceased the opportunity to better our lives, further out education and fund it out of our own pockets.

    One thing for sure is your child won't claim to be self-made as mommy is a part of the recipe to success. How wonderful for you all that is. However, you could have simply acknowledge and congratulated the recipients in completing their degrees by any legal means necessary then thanked Heaven for the Angel who rescued them from debt. But, your bitterness and jealousy got the best of you. Good night.

  • J2PC

    The article is about a clapback. Therefore, I'm not talking about Dave Thomas. I'm talking about the billionaire being specific with where his donated millions were going (and that is to pay off the debt of the graduating class).

    Not hard to request a copy of their student loan bills and write checks to each loan account to pay it off in full. That's being in control. -more donors should be that specific as to some of it going to a school's department for scholarships & upgrades or repairs. And some being awarded to pay of the student loan debt for an underprivileged student at a disadvantage.

    Historical college scandals reflect the abuse that I spoke of. Where donated $$$ that is not controlled by the donor can be left up to the discretion of the financial aid office or school.

  • Heat2Hot

    I wasn't happy about the interview regarding MJ but Oprah's good far outweighs her bad. She didn't have to help anyone financially but this woman has changed many lives for the better. There were 300 displaced families after hurricane Katrina that now have homes because Oprah partnered with a couple of organizations and donated 10 million of her own money. Remember that sister Fanny who was a maid raising her own kids and her nephews? Oprah gave her money and bought her a new car. The Morehouse grads and the list goes on. She wasn't obligated to do any of this. She's a human being who has made questionable choices but so have l.

  • Topic Influencer

    For me its more than her hypocrisy. I cant speak for everyone here. Someone else just as a new comment, said she made questionable choices and its human as we all do. Okay. Point taken.

    However , there are some things that the line is drawn at. And its no longer a "questionable choice". Murder. Rape. Heinous crimes against the human race. Under that umbrella the following falls: Hanging out and publicly supporting KNOWN PEDOPHILES. Pretty unforgivable to me, and again. I dont speak for all here. Just lil ole me. But crimes against women and children will NEVER get the human race far. They are our most precious assest on this earth aside from the elements. She is supporting fukkery. I dont care WHO she is pitted against. Only "close up detail" I need to see.

    She had a network and gave all white people shows and didnt care about black people until she needed them to help those dead cable ratings her network was receiving.... She got with Tyler Perry after he was already winning to boast her network with his shows. She didnt get an Oscar Nod so she went to the NAACP awards to get attention.

    Oprah does not have to account for every penny she donates to anyone except the recipients and the IRS. If she gave nothing people would complain. When she gives something people complain. And I bet those at least half of those complainers don't donate a good dime to a soul.

    This. I had no idea what the hell I was getting into at 17 when I signed my loan documents. My parents were with me, but they had the mindset that a college degree= job (because it DID mean this when they got their degrees). Not so for me. I graduated during the recession with a piece of paper and a loan I couldn't pay. It's insane for people to think a kid between the ages of 17-21 has any idea of what they're really getting into. Plus, you're banking everything on being employed in the future, which a college degree no longer guarantees. Its a gamble for sure, and I lost.

    Oprah spoke on why she opened a school in Africa. She said that American children are far more privileged than African children. I think she referenced an instance of how American kids were more concerned with electronic gadgets and sneakers. Something about they weren’t focused or didn’t think education was a priority. I can’t say she’s wrong, and it’s *her* money to do as she wants with.

    Maybe you need to pray. I don't like how she did that. Her or Gayle. I said what I said. Michael Jackson was a black man....end of story...and the way that she portrayed him after his death was sickening. If you are accepting of that...maybe you should take your own advice and go pray and meditate. Would you want someone to do that to you?

  • EMILY POST

    She opened a school in Africa because she could and she wanted too. - Thats my point.... Who said she was wrong??? I am just not all up her arse no more I would be if a white women was in her position, unlike some black people when she has shown you how much she does not care unless your worshipping her like the second coming ... African Americans are taught to praise anybody with money its so sad....... Its as simple as that.... Please don't start acting like she is over here in America doing things for black communities.
    Unless she has a movie coming out or need some publicity for her tired specials. She got credit for helping making the Movie About Selma Alabama and made sure she had all of Hollywood elite there pretending. at her screening in "Hollywood". Doing nothing for the people of Selma but racking in those movie Woah is Black people dollars and exploiting them. Crying and stuff... LOL I saw the special viewing on television it was sickening. I bet the poor blacks in that state got 0 percent of the proceeds... Those Black celebrities that want y'all folks to follow them blindly...

  • EMILY POST

    Wow your comments are the dumbest. No one said it was her responsibility. Missing the point like always. No one is blaming Oprah.

  • EMILY POST

    I never said Oprah was responsible dummy. Your missing the point as always Captain Obvious. I used it as an example of how she don't give no F's about black people in America unless its profit time.

  • EMILY POST

    lol

  • T Willis

    You said you would react the same way if it were a yt woman in Oprah’s position, but in your initial comment you said something about how Oprah doesn’t give a f*ck cause she didn’t do for black Americans what she did for Africans, so which is it? Is it about race or principality? Do you think black Americans are entitled to more of her generosity instead of Africans? And if you believe as I do, that it’s *her* money to do with as she pleases, then why does it bother you who got more, (black Americans vs Africans)? You talking outta both sides of your neck, but it basically comes back to one important fact: it’s her money and she defended why she did what she’s done for Africans.

    Blacks don’t worship those with money, they admire black people that are able to make something out of nothing (Oprah). It shows character and tenacity, which elicits respect. That’s what you’re sensing - it’s not @$$ kissing.

  • EMILY POST

    You took my comment wrong. You thought I was attacking Oprah which I wasnt really. Except the Selma viewing was weird. I just dont understand why people would run to Oprah thinking she would do what?
    Okay if you say so ...

  • hottlanta

    What has dump done for schools in new york before he became president. How much has he given after all these years. Are you gonna blame him for the school system decay. Yeah he opened a school dump university n u had 2 pay to go to that sham of a school. Who is holiding him accountable all these years.

  • EMILY POST

    Is it true about Fulton County. 7 out of 10 of the new cases are black women that have HIV??? Your name is Hot Lanta.... Is it true? You talking about Trump but is this true? Cause it was addressed in the State of the Union this year but because IDIOTS like yourself is too busy babbling about nothing you might of missed it.

  • hottlanta

    Is it also true about fulton county where white women prostitutes r still robbing men for money.

  • EMILY POST

    Your name is Hottlanta you asked about Trump and I gave you the State of the F*cking Union this year.... You didnt say nothing but your talking about white prostitutes? lol You need to read more.

    White women on télévision the other day with 5 front teeth missing from sandy springs giving tips on how to stop a burglar.????

  • Soon2BWife

    Listen, I don't have children but I have nieces and nephews and little cousins. If they plan on going to college everybody be all excited I be like yeah how are you going to pay for it and what do you plan to study. They typically say financial aid and something like marketing, English, Sociology. I be like nope...Financial Aid is not free first of all and you might as well say you are studying Starbucks and your parents basement with those major. College is the biggest scam if you aren't aware. Their are actually parents that have no idea that Finamcilal Aid is not free. I have also seen parents whole financial life ruined because of parent plus loans. It's a shame! Folks get mad at me because I am a proponent of trade schools. Unless you have the money up front or through a FULL scholarship or are going for something in the IT, Electrical/Chemical ENG, Pharmacy, Business Management or Nursing, Pre Med, Pre- Denistry etc forget it! Parents: My baby is going to college! Me: How? Parents:

  • Renee26

    Not surprised at all... you pointed it out, now she's in the pic on the new post... Looks like a made-up teenager... That ring is awfully large for her little boney hand ?

    Okra ?? sounds about right

  • ?Starring Ladii Jaye?

    Exactly! Dictating other people's money...WTF you doing with yours?

  • ?Starring Ladii Jaye?

    Say that!!!

  • Jethro

    Tell 'em, Oprah! People need to stay out of folks' wallets.

  • T Willis

    A stat that came out a while ago showed that there were more black men in college than in prison. Like the number was drastically lower. And thankfully, we have more black men and black women attending college.

  • Kayke

    Point taken. I still am not a fan of Oprah or her stunts to pat herself on the back.

  • Tlowe89

    Oprah said sit yo peasant a$s down, you not my account, or Stedman, so don’t worry about the checks I write.

    Not everyone calls the media everytime they donate money

  • Katherine

    Sounds like you are placing equal blame against her as the pedophiles themselves. Oprah has never been accused of such heinous crimes or victimizing anyone. The blame should be placed on the perpetrators alone. I don't see how you can blame her based on past associates unless you have proof that she saw abusive behavior with her own eyes or someone brought claims of abuse directly to her that she ignored. Harvey associated with a lot of people, including some who are just recently coming forward with claims of abuse. Are you placing blame against any of his other associates?

  • Tlowe89

    Lmao I’m that person, but I don’t care how others spend their money.

  • Katherine

    Understood. Just have to add one point, I don't blame her for speaking up for herself every now and then. The lies would have taken a life of their own. Can't be easy ignoring unwarranted criticism when she knows the things she has done for others behind the scenes without seeking attention or publicity for them.

  • The Real Anonymouse

    And this is why there’s a problem with what this guy did. Simps will be taking out loans looking for who will pay them off.

    It was a nice gesture and it’s his money but it sends the wrong message.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    You never try and go at a woman like Oprah. I sure there are many things she had done that we don't know about.

  • Kayke

    Oprah orchestrated her criticism with a fake tweet.
    The type of person that would @ a celebrity and directly criticize them is not the kind of person that would delete a tweet where that celebrity responds directly to them.

  • Katherine

    Sounds like you are speculating. Anyway these things are traceable. I doubt she would take that chance. Worst case scenario she wanted to pat herself on the back for things she did a while back but didn't initially seek attention for. So what, she deserves a bunch of pat's on the back for helping so many people where she was not required to do so.

  • Leigh Burton

    A book? There should have been money inside of each of those books for the graduates! She is Oprah Winfrey!

  • Zeta Aggie

    Sad. That’s why he would get Off 5th next time lol and the year end season clearance at that

  • Chicagowise

    If the shoes were my size, I would have kept them. LOL ?

  • jujumanji

    Why are people always in somebody elses pocket? She made her money she can spend it how she wants. Oprah doesnt owe anyone a damn dime. I wish somebody would try and tell me how to spend mine..

  • LLC

    I guess you didn't read...." Lights On program for children to hang out after school.
    Oprah announced she was donating $500,000 to the program. She made the announcement to the packed gymnasium of screaming kids.
    Cook keeps the lights on for the program with generous donations from people" Not to mention the school in Africa and all the thousands of generous things she does with the community. I thank Oprah for bringing Iyanla Fix My Life into my life.

    Black American parents are to blame for not being interested and investing in their childs education. And not teaching them education is important.

  • SunSoy

    You mean Black Americans and you sound bitter.

  • SunSoy

    Black Americans always want handouts.

  • SunSoy

    Black Women carry the most college debt in this country. You must be one of those.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Is that supposed to be an insult? ?????Because if so, you failed miserably.

  • SunSoy

    No one cares about Black Women and their college debt. Black women carry the most college debt in America. Y'all on your own.

  • Renee26

    It's all good. Call it determination... We STILL get that education even if we rack up debt in the process. It's better than cheating, lying and paying bribes for a fake education. Black women are exhibiting excellence and opening up businesses left and right. WINNING!!

    Good Day!

  • supastar

    What they want Oprah to do? Go broke taking care of everybody? she worked hard for her money and she gives back all the time. People are never satisfied.
