    The thing I love about this #Morehouse situation is the pressure it puts on every other bazillionaire who’s already signed up to give a commencement speech this month.

    Robert F. Smith is the richest Black person in the U.S. He just pledged to pay all 400 @Morehouse graduating class members’ remaining student loans. What he has just unlocked will reverberate for DECADES if not more. Even if I never meet him, I will be forever grateful to him.
