The Western Kentucky University student government voted this week to give blacks free tuition as ‘reparations’.
Via Campus Reform:
The Western Kentucky University student government voted Tuesday in favor of reparations for black students in the form of free tuition.
The resolution, which passed by a vote of 19-10-0, recommends that the university acknowledge slavery as a “debt that will never be paid” and offer free tuition to black students, reports the WKU Herald.
n addition, the resolution asks that a special task force be created to look into test-optional admissions and admissions weighting based on geographical location, which in theory would make it easier for black students to apply and be accepted to WKU.
Andre Ambam, one of the resolution’s authors, told the Herald that racial disparity has translated into economic disparity, inhibiting black students from attending college.
“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[s] for black students would be amazing,” Ambam said.
“This is something that I think is more importantly about sending a clear message than it is about actually trying to strive for the institution to actually give out free tuition to everybody,” added Brian Anderson, the other author of the bill.
Some senators expressed concerns about the financial burden on students who would have to cover the free tuition, either in the form of increased fees or higher taxes, but were unable to disabuse their colleagues of the notion that historical injustice must be rectified by contemporary injustice.
“A lot of times equality can feel like oppression for those who are losing their advantage, but that’s not a reason we shouldn’t fight for equality,” Nellans said.
I would like to know how many of the blacks applying were actual slaves and how many of the whites paying for these reparations were actual slave owners.
If this white guilt nonsense doesn’t stop, our country will never heal. The U.S. government has transferred billions of dollars if not more in payments to blacks in the form of welfare. When is enough, enough?
