"I read with interest that you (and fellow billionaire George Soros) are going to contribute millions of your own fortunes to supplement the tax dollars New York City's government will spend because 'blacks and Latinos are not fully sharing in the promise of American freedom.' Yet rather than spending your own money — and that of the taxpayers -- on retraining probation officers, posting job recruitment signs in government housing projects, and the other ideas mentioned in the New York Times article, you should consider much more effective ways to help young black and Latino men."  (08/15/11)
