"Y'all seeing Mackenzie Scott (Bezos ex-wife) making it rain on HBCUs?"
Tue Dec-15-20 03:49 PM by PimpTrickGangstaClik

          

Actually just making it rain in general. She's donated over $6 billion to organizations so far this year, and more than $4 billion of that in the past 4 months.

Today it looks like she gave:
$40 million to Morgan State
$20 million to Delaware State
$15 million to Clark Atlanta
$50 million to Prairie View
$30 million to Virginia State
$5 million to Dillard
$15 million to Elizabeth City State

I may have missed some.

And recently she gave:
$20 million to Xavier
$20 million to Morehouse
$20 million to Tuskegee
And undisclosed amounts to Howard, Hampton, and Spelman

but I believe his ex-wife became one of the 20th richest people in the world as result of the money Jeff Bezos gave her after their divorce.

That is pretty damn insane.

They don’t have to pay taxes on the amount of their income that they donated. So do the math.

Charitable deductions is mostly for the rich.

They even hiked up the standard deduction to make it even more exclusive.

“The way the charitable tax deduction is set up, lower-income Americans can’t really take advantage of it. Unless you earn a lot of money, it makes no financial sense to do your taxes in a way that lets you claim the charitable deduction. The 2017 Republican tax bill made even fewer Americans eligible for the charitable deduction by hiking the standard deduction. Critics responded that they’d made the tax deduction a deduction just for the rich.”

Anything from it being a metaphor, to the "eye of the needle" being a reference an actual gate that was only narrow enough for the person and their camel to get through, and so the passage is supposedly referencing the fact that someone traveling with too much would be unable to get through.

Of course, that nonsense isn't helped by the fact that jesus, in the passage right before the one you mentioned, was asked what one must due to gain eternal life, and he said to keep the commandments (nothing at all about accepting him as their savior, but I digress).

The man asked which ones, Jesus said don't murder, commit adultery, or steal, and honor your father and mother, and love your neighbor as yourself. The man said he's kept all those, and then Jesus says to sell all your possessions and give to the poor- and *then* follow him (Jesus).

Case will have another ridiculous contortion to explain that too.
Indoctrination is basically cancer. That shit is hard to kill.

And you ran literally ran off and made up an entire conversation in your miserable head. But as always, you failed to do the first basic thing - ask a clarifying question. But do you. It's a regular routine that you play out all the time.

...and, in my previous post, I said you'd have some apologetic gymnatic routine ready to go for that question.

I then listed candidate apologetics often used by christians.

I didn't make up a goddamned thing.
That you didn't use one of the specific examples (niether of which I said you'd use specifically, because again, they were exmaples) and went with another bullshit contrortion to allow you to rationalize why you're not doing what you're convoluted myth tells you to do, doesn't change anything.

Not that it matters, post hoc rationalizations are pretty much necessary to be religious.

i'm assuming that your usual logical lapse leads you to believe that others would not have this money if there were no billionaires.

is that your unlogical leap for today, Einstein?

16. "you clearly don't understand the point"
In response to Reply # 13


          


You say you do, but you really, very clearly, do not.

And your point that this news somehow invalidates the 'no billionaires'point is, frankly, willfully ignorant and/or shockingly stupid.

So basically you came in here to poorly dunk on an argument that you clearly don't understand, accuse OTHERS of operating under absolutes, and accused others of being the ones who make assumptions.

How is all of that working out for you?

In response to Reply # 16


          

My point is that not all Billionaires are inherently evil. Bezo's ex inherited the Billions via a divorce settlement. How does that make her evil? It doesn't. That's the point I was making on an individual moral level.

First: I don't agree that all Billionaires are inherently evil.
Second: See the First.

Are there valid arguments about the exploitation of people, resources, social and economic structures by people who are Billionaires? YES! YES! YES! There are some evil, raggedy, unethical, people who are Billionaires. But I can't say that all Billionaires are inherently evil. That doesn't negate my understanding when it comes the atrocities that some Billionaires have committed. In fact the number is some made up benchmark that's being used, becasue again, as I said in my comments below, many of these jokers were evil before they reached a Billion.

29. "You make a lot of really dumb assertions."
In response to Reply # 13


  

          

And you're never able to substantiate those dumb assertions with facts or sound logic.

If her assumptions were off base, you *could* choose to expound in a way that clarifies your meaning and intent. We all say shit flippantly from time to time that could stand a little clarification in order to complete a thought that sounded one way at first, but becomes something different once clarification is given.

The problem you have is, when you do expound, you tend to double down on everything that was wrong in your initial statement.

38. "That statement is a fantastic microcosm of the issues described"
In response to Reply # 32


  

          

Because you're a dishonest interlocutor, all the time, every time, when your opinion is challenged. You do not discuss anything in good faith, unless you're preaching to a choir.

Otherwise?

It's this disingenuous nonsense.

Nobody said you owe anyone anything.

What you "owe" is immaterial to whether or not the things you say comport with reality.

And you tend to lean heavily toward opinions that do not comport with reality at worst, and deal in gross oversimplifications at best. You routinely demonstrate that you are not in step with logic and observable facts, and view things consistently through low common denominator lenses.

And so often, when you're challenged with logic and facts that dispute your opinion, you go straight into that dip/dodge/duck/deflect/divert mode.

You are incapable of having an honest, sincere discussion on any topic where your thoughts aren't in line with the other party.

In this particular case, you were spectacularly loud and wrong, and absolutely didn't want to hear about how or why.

Upgrade them campuses and dorms.

It would be even doper if they centralized the construction efforts with oversight by a project manager who makes sure none of the money is wasted.

ANND the construction is done by black businesses that employ black people.

In response to Reply # 0

First, for some, the topic Billionaires being evil for is a charged emotional matter, and it's hard to have a coherent conversation about the subject. If you can read, then you can find tons of articles that position why Billionaires shouldn't exist or why they are the scum of the earth and the negative impact that their quest for monetary domination causes for the world. So, if you can read you can understand why people think and feel they way they do about the matter. But again, understanding why someone feels the way they do does not validate the absolute end-all assumption or position. Life is not BLACK and WHITE. That's the fact.

So, let's agree that there are some (I don’t have a number) Horrible and Unethical Billionaires. But we can also agree that many of them were horrible and unethical people before they became Billionaires. To my point, the dollar figure is not the issue. Evil people are the issue and many evil, horrible, and unethical people that have become Billionaires were evil before they made a Billion dollars.

The OP Post is about Bezos ex-wife MacKenzie Scott giving away money to HBCUs. My point is that although she was married to Bezos, she's not Bezos. Nevertheless, She's now an individual Billionaire that may have not been a Horrible and Unethical person. She's become the beneficiary of a financial marital asset. That's how divorces work.

Say she was a loving, caring, empathetic, upright and moral person in life. Does her new financial status make her a Horrible and Unethical person. I think not. To the point of my protest, not all Billionaires are evil.

But, I'm sure that someone will argue that MacKenzie Scott shouldn't even be in this situation because Billionaires shouldn't exist. Well, they do and that's a different conversation. My point is that not all Billionaires are inherently evil.

43. "That was further confirmation that you do not understand. "
In response to Reply # 34


  

          

You're arguing against the notion that the billionaire, the person, is the evil.

It's odd that you say, rather condescendingly, that life is not black and white, while you make a black and white defense of billionaires (the people themselves) not being evil.

A given billionaire may or may not be necessarily "evil", depending on definitions. Key word: Necessarily.

And I'm sure you'll out some article somewhere where people are railing against the billionaires specifically being the scum of the earth. but that's not what's happening here, in this thread, and that makes your entire argument here a straw man.

The evil of billionaires-the concept, not necessarily the specific person- lies in the fact that nobody earns a billion dollars. There's an argument for, say, someone who got in on bitcoin back in 2010 and held on, but even that speaks to the same broader issue.

Bezos is worth hundreds of billions on the backs of front line workers who, until recently, made a wage that was low enough that many still qualified for public assistance, and our taxes (very little of which is paid by Amazon) have to be used to subsidize those people into a a standard living that is still just treading water.

Then, Amazon upped the wages of those workers to a level that, in many cases, was just above the cutoff for public assistance, thereby moving the quality of life needle very little, if at all.

The system that allows for Bezos to exist as he does, is the system that allows for the front line workers who work their ass off under absolutely insane conditions, under an absurd amount of monitoring and scrutiny, to make a barely livable wage.

Further, the money that Bezos' wife is handing out, while great for those institutions, was made off the labor of those same workers.

The fact that she gave that much isn't evil in a vaccuum.

The fact that one person commands enough wealth, off the backs of innumerable workers who have not reaped a meaningful fraction of that same reward despite contributing the vast majority of the sweat involved in creating that wealth, to just give away that amount of money, absolutely IS evil.

Because the issue at hand is the concentration of immense wealth to a minuscule number of people is the problem.

That those workers will, by and large pay a significantly greater percentage of their income in taxes than Amazon does as a company, is evil.

That those workers do not make a wage high enough to allow them to actively participate in the stock market that billionaires such as Bezos use to expand their fortunes exponentially off the roller coaster created by a global pandemic that disproportionately impacts the workers who built the seed capital that allowed to be in the mix to receive those gains, is absolutely evil.

If those workers received a significantly greater portion of the profits- and by that, I mean all of them, and not the paltry stock options given as part of a benefits package, but a truly equitable wage- those workers would have substantially better economic situations.

Mind you, this is just amazon.

And it's just a scratch on the surface, because there is so much more to address on the subject.

And yet, you're here talking in black and white terms, defending the symptom of the problems inherent with billionaires, without once addressing any of the problems themselves.

In response to Reply # 43


          

and you made my point in your first sentence. I am not talking about the concentration of wealth or challenging that argument. I have heard people say that all Billionaires are inherently evil and immoral because they had to do immoral or unethical things in order to accumulate such wealth and that's what I'm challenging.

Again, I'm not arguing the position against s the concentration of immense wealth to a minuscule number of people. That's one problem. That's not that problem I'm contesting. '

So, why can't you understand that fact.

56. "My view on this isn't remotely narrow."
In response to Reply # 48


  

          

And that's evident in my statements.

I addressed a particular issue, but that issue is arguably the top level shell under which the rest of the issues are nested, which is the system that not only allows, but facilitates and encourages poverty wages for frontline workers while creating staggering levels of wealth for those at the time- and I addressed several individual elements of how and why those were negative.

My post was anything but "narrow".

I then reiterated the fact that that particular post was only dealing with Amazon, before clearly stating that there is much more to address on the subject.

Who is expressing that view in here, as you just expressed, for that to be challenged?

You're contesting a problem that hasn't thus far been raised in the context of this discussion.

You're also contesting a problem that is symptomatic of the disease, but not the disease itself.

That those billionaires exist at all is demonstrably a far greater and more pertinent problem than the billionaires themselves. This is evident in the fact that, if we change the system in a way that prevents billionaires from existing at all, and instead works to distribute that wealth to workers as an equitable wage instead of the whims- be it tax shelter, from the heart, or otherwise- of a small handful of those who get to control it- those billionaires may still be able to do vile things, but not to the tune of a billion dollars while thousands beneath them have to eek out a meager existence.

The demonstrably narrow view here, is to go after the lowest branch of fruit available: people who think rich people are greedy and evil.

The thing your contesting is a joke.

50. "Great example: Your "rich people are greedy" link"
In response to Reply # 34


  

          

Does not address the ethical problems with the existence of billionaires.

It's an absolutely useless entry to the discussion.

And, yet again, is a high-definition photograph that illustrates that you do not understand the ethical problems with the existence of billionaires.

55. "See my initial response. What are you arguing?"
In response to Reply # 53


          


My initial post: "And people say there should be no Billionaires or that they are evil"

I'm responding to the people that have made bogus claims about my understanding of something that I never questioned or challenged. I posed a statement about the existence of Billionaires and then being evil. Folk ran with what they wanted. I clarified my comments after folks like you made up nonsense and tried to build a house on it.

59. "You're responding to people who aren't here."
In response to Reply # 55


  

          

grabbing the lowest hanging branch imaginable with each entry.

As of now, you've said (more or less)that you don't disagree with the larger issues I've presented, and are debating the argument from people who aren't in this poast that all billionaires are evil.

Even if the billionaire is the kindest, warmest, most charitable person imaginable, you're still ignoring that their very existence is symptomatic of the evil people who are actually here are talking about.

Which, again, illustrates that you don't quite get it.

In response to Reply # 66


  

          

and in detail.

You can write whatever you want in the header, and you can pretend all you want that that isn't the case- but your assertion doesn't match the facts of reality.

I've been substantive the entire time, addressing specific points, in detail.

You can dip, dodge, duck, divert and deflect all day, but that doesn't change reality.

I stated my point and clarified the point. You seem to want to ignore that fact. I'm good.

72. "Recently gave away another $2.7billion"
In response to Reply # 0


          

It's like Brewster's Millions at this point. She's trying to give it all away, but at the same time keeps getting richer

https://apnews.com/article/mackenzie-scott-donating-billions-8e06be7452b8c70f0d9802a6c10ca6a0


MacKenzie Scott, citing wealth gap, donates $2.7 billion

Scott, the billionaire philanthropist known for her impromptu multi-billion dollar donations to charities and racial equity causes, announced Tuesday, June 15, 2021, that she has given $2.7 billion to 286 organizations. It is the third round of major philanthropic gifts Scott has made, which together rival the charitable contributions made by the largest foundations. (Photo by Evan Agostini/Invision/AP, File)
MacKenzie Scott, the billionaire philanthropist known for her unexpected multi-billion dollar donations to charities and racial equity causes, announced Tuesday that she has given $2.7 billion to 286 organizations. It is the third round of no-strings-attached, major philanthropic gifts Scott has made, which together rival the charitable contributions made by the largest foundations.

Scott, the ex-wife of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, wrote in a Medium post that she and her husband, Dan Jewett, made the donations to enable the recipients to continue their work and as a “signal of trust and encouragement” to them and others.

And she made clear in her announcement that she is troubled by the increasing concentration of vast wealth among a small proportion of individuals. She and Jewett worked with a team of researchers and philanthropy advisors “to give away a fortune that was enabled by systems in need of change.”

In response to Reply # 72

Its obvious they had an open marriage or an understanding but can you imagine going from 80K a year to bagging a Billionaire with generous pockets?

This dude is a fucking winner!!!

I shudder to think, as it definitely involves Jeff when he still had that terrible hair.
