A donation from Dr. Dre to USC brings up some questions

A donation to the University of Southern California has drawn the ire of one Big Black Scholar:

basically Dre, is giving $35 Million to USC for the creation of a new degree program, whereas he could have put thousands of blacks through an HBCU with the same amount. It begs the question why did he chose USC instead of and HBCU?
I have yet to see a response, but I have never seen any indication from Mr. Young that he has an interest in the plight of his people unless its being exploited for financial gain. See Eminem, a repackaging of black culture being sold to white people, and also to a lesser, though also equally annoying extent, Snoop.
In the comments from this article you have many mixed emotions and thoughts about what he’s done, but in the end, I just see him as either being rich and highly ignorant or an ambivalent and uninformed former Nigga With Attitude, who has long since put all that “Nigga” business behind him.
