    Graduating black lawyers, many of whom are graduates of traditional Black colleges, who are a disgrace to the legal profession.

    60 Minutes, Sunday, March 24, 2013, “Blindsided: The exoneration of Brian Banks”. The woman, Wanetta Gibson, who made the false claim of rape against Brian Banks is black. “As his day in court approached, Brian says that his lawyer feared that he wouldn’t get a fair trial, based on his age, size & race. So she, an African-American herself, convinced Brian to plead no contest to a crime he insisted he didn’t commit.” -Attorney Elizabeth Harris and other spineless, dysfunctional, a d treasonous Black lawyers should be disbarred from practicing law in any jurisdiction in the U.S..

    Black elected leaders, many of whom are graduates of traditional Black colleges, but who are also a disgrace to the essence of what it means to be an elected official.

    Few if any of the graduates of traditional Black colleges are returning to the “inner-cities” of Compton, CA, Detroit, MI, Baltimore, MD., Oakland, CA, Atlanta, GA, New Orleans, LA, Chicago, IL, etc., etc., to improve the quality of life in the community he or she grew up, and it shows.

    Indeed, Dr. Dre…AKA….Andre Young is from Compton, CA. It is certain that Dr. Dre is aware of all the bad policies that have resulting in the downfall of Compton, CA, Detroit, MI, Oakland, CA, Baltimore, MD., Chicago, IL, resulting from the incompetence of Black elected officials, clergypersons, lawyers, accountants, poverty pimps, the NAACP, United Negro College Fund, you name it, have been perpetrating a fraud on the Black community, and year after year, there is nothing to show for all the money spent or contributed to keep these individuals and organizations in business.

    In many jurisdictions where university educated Black people are large and in charge, many of these individuals being graduates of “traditional black colleges or universities”, gross incompetence, greed, sleaze, and treason have resulted in the Cities and School Districts of Compton, CA, Detroit, MI, Oakland, CA, Inglewood, CA, etc., etc., going bankrupt or being taken over by outsiders to competently manage and resolve problems that university educated misfits from within the Black community have made.

    In many jurisdictions where university educated Black people are large and in charge, many of these individuals being graduates of “traditional black colleges or universities”, gross incompetence, greed, sleaze, and treason have resulted in numerous Black elected officials being criminally indicted and convicted for stealing, taking bribes, using false pretenses to hold office, lying under oath, and most of all being a disgrace to the essence of what it means to be an elected official in the cities of Compton, CA, Detroit, MI, Oakland, CA, Inglewood, CA, New Orleans, LA, Atlanta, GA, Baltimore, MD., etc., etc.

    In many jurisdictions where university educated Black people are large and in charge, many of these individuals being graduates of “traditional black colleges or universities”, there are numerous instances of no good university educated Black lawyers “playing the race card”, trashing Constitutional protections, and advising innocent U.S. born Black men and women to plead no contest, instead of competently representing his or her U.S. born descendant of slavery Black client.

    Indeed Dr. Dre, you worked hard and through great sacrifice you are extremely successful today.   Coming from Compton, CA, that is quite an accomplishment. I don’t blame you at all for doing what you think is best to manage your assets.  You definitely have the right to invest your own assets in a way that you feel will reap the greatest benefit.

    Dr. Dre….AKA…Andre Young, and his crew may or may not possess a Bachelors, Masters or Doctorate Degree in Pomposity from any of the HBCUs, or even be a Pompous Professor of Pomposity, but I’m willing to bet that Dr. Dre still has more street smarts and common sense than many U.S. born Black university graduates and Black Nationalist/Pan African/Marcus Garvey Movement Race Card players, who denounce his or her U.S. citizenship, trash the Constitution, while giving praise to, and giving away his or her earnings to numerous no good “jackleg poverty pimping preachers. It is certain, that many of these individuals who teach and preach such material may not even be U.S. citizens, because there are illegal aliens and his or her anchor babies from Somalia, Kenya, Nigeria, Trinidad, the Sudan, etc., etc., in the U.S. as well.

    If Frederick Douglass were to be resurrected from his grave, slim chance exists that he would agree with numerous individuals from within the Black community who denounce the importance of his or her U.S. citizenship , because Frederick Douglass like other individuals spent his or her life to free U.S. born Blacks from being enslaved and for the purpose of making Constitutional protections a reality for U.S. born descendants of slavery.

    Selected comment:

    "The problem with MASS-INCARCERATION is not the USA JUST_US system…

    The problem is with Black people; as the old saying goes, ignorance of the law is no excuse…

    When you nine (9) out of ten (10) Blacks taking plea deals, and pleading guilty because of their ignorance, then there is nothing you can do about that…

    You go to any city in America, and Black folks will tell you, you better take that deal, these white folks don’t play here…and this is all too common among Blacks…

    1) Never give up your right to “REMAIN SILENT”…

    2) Never give up your right to a “SPEEDY TRIAL”…

    These are the most common rights we give up as a whole…I have been charged with every crime under the SUN, just for being Black…held in jail with a high bond for months waiting to go to trial…put in cells with thugs, and had to fight daily, because the people think that I will plead guilty to their erroneous charges…

    NEVER, too strong for that, my mind is not week…

    You have Black court appointed attorneys convincing their clients to plead guilty, instead of the attorney doing their job to investigate a case; I guess it is a lot easier to get  $30,000.00 to convince your own race to plead guilty, then to have to work for the money and help convince a jury they are not guilty…

    There is nothing your “NOT  the Black people’s President” can do for you…it is like education, it must start in the home…but for some reason, families are first ones to convince you to take the deal" -PB Short.
    -PB Short

    http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-967800
    There is one positive solution, and that is using the influence necessary to insure that any inept court appointed attorney or otherwise, especially a court appointed Black attorney who has a history of recommending his or her client and/or to any judge of the court that his or her Black and truly innocent client "plead no contest/guilty" be fired on the spot, or barred from ever practicing law again.

    Holding individuals accountable or firing them if they are not competent:
    1. Will keep you from senselessly losing your shirt/assets through paying for incompetence.

    2. Will increase the probability of finding and paying for competency in the Black community.
    3. Individuals who are not competent won’t be able to make a living.
    4. They can or will lose his, her and/or their license to be lawfully and gainfully employed, or if an incompetent individual is licensed he or she won’t be able to financially profit from holding the license, because truly informed individuals will not seek or pay for the services of the incompetent.

    Op-Ed:  “Why USC and not a black college, Dr. Dre?, His huge gift to the school is commendable, but why couldn't it have gone to a needy black college?” by Walter M. Kimbrough, May 21, 2013

    Selected important responses and comments:

    “Some of us Black people graduated from non-HBCU's. When I make my mark, I'll be giving to my Alma maters -- Carnegie Mellon and Harvard. I don't owe a thing to any HBCU. The President of Dillard is being disingenous when he pretends that HBCU's are for Black people only. Shucks, when my husband was at Morgan State University in their graduate architecture program, this HBCU was giving away full minority scholarships to Whites and Asians, but none to Blacks. He eventually transferred to Cal Poly Pomona's program and decided to repeat the entire three-year program because he felt that he had learned very little in the two years he wasted his time at the HBCU. Why throw good money after bad?” Kaye Wolf , May 21, 2013

    “I know Dre personally, what does this have to do with race? And since when did Jimmy Iovine turn Black? This was a partnership, just like they're are partners with "Beats by Dre" headphones that has made hundreds of millions of dollars. Headphones that have swept the world - a piece of audio sound equipment.  USC has the top communications, film, and sound engineering schools and departments in the nation. Dre is a native Angelino, grew up not too far from the USC campus, and has lived in California all of his life. It is a very natural and sound move to put the combine esources with the best place that can leverage the money and also bring in a diverse group of people and talent - be they Black, Asian, Hispanic, or White and hopefully create something special in the process.” By Eric Lee2, May 21, 2013

    “One might consider making a donation like the one Dr. Dre gave to USC to and HBCU when HBCUs show they have overcome their administrative issues. Yes HBCUs still have a purpose in America but there is no reason why many of the institutions are run so inefficiently.  Many of the changes that need to be made are just common sense and do not require funds/money yet they are not made.  Why would one want to provide money to that kind of system? One other point... there are many mis-informed commenters regarding HBCUs.  They do not restrict admission.  Anyone who wants to go can apply and be admitted.  The question is how non-black Americans are aware of these institutions and actually consider them when applying to school. In some states there some savvy non-black HBCU consumers.  I say savvy because they are eligible for aid more often because they represent the minority.  Many have missed the point of the H in HBCU.” by mgbrx99, May 21, 2013

    What a stupid question. The two more interesting questions are:

    1. Why did he not put his money into solving community and education problems in places like Skid Row and the South Side of Chicago?

    2. Why do black colleges still exist in this day and age? Why would an open-hearted, open-minded black person want to self-segregated themselves?” by Angeleno69, May 20, 2013

    Op-Ed:  “Why USC and not a black college, Dr. Dre?, His huge gift to the school is commendable, but why couldn't it have gone to a needy black college?” by Walter M. Kimbrough, May 21, 2013

    I was in Detroit preparing to give a speech last week when the news came across my Twitter feed: "Dr. Dre and music producer Jimmy Iovine donate $70 million to USC to create new degree." As one of the first university presidents from the hip-hop generation, I had to stop and read the story immediately.

    The two music moguls and co-founders of Beats Electronics — recognizing that they needed a new type of creative talent for their growing music technology business — are funding a four-year program that blends liberal arts, graphic and product design, business and technology.

    I understood their need to build a pool of skilled talent. But why at USC? Iovine's daughter is an alum, sure. And he just gave its commencement address. Andre Young — before he was Dr. Dre — grew up in nearby Compton, where he rose to fame as part of the rap group N.W.A. The Beats headquarters are on L.A.'s Westside.

    Still, what if Dre had given $35 million — his half of the USC gift and about 10% of his wealth, according to a Forbes estimate — to an institution that enrolls the very people who supported his career from the beginning? An institution where the majority of students are low-income? A place where $35 million would represent a truly transformational gift?

    Why didn't Dr. Dre give it to a black college?

    Make no mistake: This donation is historic. It appears to be the largest gift by a black man to any college or university, comparable to the gift Bill Cosby and his wife, Camille, gave to Spelman College in 1988. Some 25 years later, their $20-million gift (about $39 million in inflation-adjusted dollars) is still the largest-ever private gift to a historically black college. Dre gave USC almost triple the amount Oprah Winfrey has given Morehouse College over the years. Sean "Diddy" Combs gave $500,000 to Howard University in 1999, which he attended before launching a successful career.

    A hip-hop icon is now the new black higher-ed philanthropy king. We've never seen a donation to rival this from any black celebrity — musician, athlete or actor — and that fact must be celebrated.

    But as the president of a black college, it pains me as well. I can't help but wish that Dre's wealth, generated as it was by his largely black hip-hop fans, was coming back to support that community.

    USC is a great institution, no question. But it has a $3.5-billion endowment, the 21st largest in the nation and much more than every black college — combined. Less than 20% of USC's student body qualifies for federal Pell Grants, given to students from low-income families, compared with two-thirds of those enrolled at black colleges. USC has also seen a steady decrease in black student enrollment, which is now below 5%.

    A new report on black male athletes and racial inequities shows that only 2.2% of USC undergrads are black men, compared with 56% of its football and basketball teams, one of the largest disparities in the nation. And given USC's $45,602 tuition next year, I'm confident Dre could have sponsored multiple full-ride scholarships to private black colleges for the cost of one at USC.

    Maybe some suspect that a historically black college or university would not have the breadth or depth of expertise on its faculty to spearhead an innovative academy. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    This future Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation is to be multidisciplinary, with a technology focus. In 2011, the National Science Foundation noted that black colleges are a major source of scientists and engineers. In fact, the top five producers of blacks who go on to earn science, technology, engineering and math graduate degrees are black colleges, as are 20 of the top 50. Once you add in the musical legacy of black colleges' choirs and marching bands, they are the perfect locations for an academy like this.

    In the end, though, this is his money, and endowing a program geographically nearby, where he can have ongoing input and contact, makes sense. I do hope it will recruit and enroll a diverse class of students and not become some enclave for the already privileged student body there.

    But more important, I hope this groundbreaking gift inspires other celebrities and musical artists to make similar donations to higher education. And that they will consider doing it in a manner that will be truly transformative. This gift is gravy for USC; for a black college, it would transform not just individuals but whole institutions and communities.

    In the Detroit airport on my way home, I counted seven people sporting the stylish Beats by Dre headphones on the way to my gate. All seven were black men, like me. My own Dre earbuds were in my briefcase. I'm sure we all bought them not only to support Dr. Dre but because of the quality of the product.

    My challenge is to figure out how to get Dr. Dre and others to listen as well, because when they support black colleges, they are also supporting a quality product.

    Walter M. Kimbrough is the president of Dillard University, a liberal arts black college in New Orleans.
