Koch Brothers Donate Millions to United Negro College Fund, Liberals FREAK OUT

The United Negro College Fund on Friday announced a $25 million grant from the Koch brothers, the much-maligned libertarian philanthropists that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) has denounced as "un-American."

The Associated Press reports:

The UNCF, known for its iconic motto, "A mind is a terrible thing to waste," is seven decades old and supports historically black colleges and universities and provides scholarships.

From the donation, $18.5 million will go toward nearly 3,000 merit-based scholarships to African-American undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral students, and $6.5 million will go toward general support for historically black colleges and universities and the UNCF.

AP's economy editor made sure to point out how "unexpected" this was:

Meanwhile, irate liberals took to Twitter to denounce the UNCF donation, just as they protested a New York City hospital for taking a $100 million donation from David Koch. It is not immediately clear why these people hate the idea of providing scholarships to African-American students.

And yet, the Koch empire grows stronger by the day.
