Default University’s student government wants free tuition ‘reparations’ for black students

Instead of this retarded crap we should give reparations to any adult that grew up in the 70s that had to endure disco music.

When are blacks gonna stop playin' the victim card and take responsibility for their lives instead of maikin' excuses and blamin' whitey?

University’s student government wants free tuition ‘reparations’ for black students – TheBlaze

Quote:
The student government at a Kentucky university voted Tuesday night to recommend that the school make tuition “free” for all black students.

The Student Government Association at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Kentucky, said the measure is a recommendation to pay those students reparations for slavery, even though the U.S. abolished slavery more than 150 years ago. The resolution sends a message to university faculty and administrators that slavery is “a debt that will never be paid,” according to Campus Reform.

The resolution, which passed 19-10, also called for a special task force to research ways to make it easier for black students to apply and get accepted into the college.

I agree. If any Negro is a former slave, he should get reparations, paid by any former slaveowner. Wait a minute. There are none in existence nowadays.

Too bad so sad.

Slavery was a dark time in our history, was reprehensible, disgusting, and without justification, it should never have happened. I like to think that if I had lived back then and fought in the war, would have been on the side to free the slaves. (Really I probably would have been in Utah with the Mormons.)

While all this is true, slavery is one of the best things that happened to those black students. They have benefited tremendously from the suffering that their ancestors endured.

If there was a way to pay reparations to the actually people that suffered from slavery, I would be 100% on board. If anyone can show how the slavery and the suffering of the ancestors is causing them to suffer today, I would be on board with giving them reparations.

From the OP...
“If you really care about diversity, if you really care about inclusion, if you really care about making this campus safe and accessible to everybody, having the student government’s support of reparation for black students would be amazing,”

The statement is counter intuitive to itself.

If slavery is a debt that can never be paid, why should anyone pay for it at all? And speaking of payment,,,; who would pay for this?
All the white people, Or just those with taxable a paycheck?

Do we enslave all white people with the tax debt to pay for this. isn't that in itself racist? And what about mongrels and half breeds like me who was born and raised anti slavery and antiracist? Why must we pay?

It's time to ignore the "it's not my fault" crowd who use their racial situation of birth as an excuse for failure instead of using their USA birthright as an opportunity for success.

That's crazy; we should have free tuition for everyone.

It isn't really free since someone has to pay for it. There's no legitimate reason to force one person to subsidize another.

As long as professors and floor sweepers and bricklayers insist on being paid, there will never be free tuition. What you wish is OPM tuition.

We already have poor people scholarships, minority scholarships, good grade scholarships, athletic scholarships, Pell grants, military scholarships. And when all else fails, student loans. If you have the will, there's a way.

to quote mikeyy......It’s hard to win an argument with a smart person, but it’s damn near impossible to win an argument with a stupid person.
