University Student Gov Votes to Give Free Tuition to Blacks as ‘Reparations’

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.
In 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? SOURCE
Kennesaw State University Segregates White Students For “Privilege Workshop”
For all you parents who have spent the past month bragging about which college recently accepted your snowflake and dreaming about the career doors that will be opened up courtesy of an elite education and your $50,000 annual tuition checks, here is a dose of reality about what your student is actually about to be subjected to.
Kennesaw State University recently hosted a workshop for their snowflakes called “Being, Becoming, and Fostering Allies: Building Relationship Across Privilige.” The workshop, hosted by 3 psychology professors and a doctoral student, billed itself more or less as a crash course on relationship development.
Panelists will highlight the essential conceptual, relational, and emotional processes involved in ally development, using their long-standing relationships to illustrate key concepts and identify and model strategies for enacting ally intentions. Panelists will explore the ongoing process of developing and fostering allies and the challenges that emerge in these journeys. Presenters will discuss the essential roles of self-reflection, cultural humility action, and re-engagement after failures, as well as the qualities of relationships that facilitate ally development.
But, when it came time to split up into breakout sessions, the enlightened psych professors thought it would be great idea to segregate the white students so they could reflect on their ‘white privilege’ in solitude.
“Those who identify as white, go to room SO 1019”
“Those who identify as people of color, go to room SO 5074”
And while that may seem hard to believe for anyone who hasn’t spent much time around our ‘institutions of higher indoctrination’ in recent years, here is a copy of the workshop flyer from HeatStreet:
Not surprisingly, a spokeswoman from Kennesaw State said the whole situation was simply being “mischaracterized” as segregation…
“The goal of the workshop, which was led by an outside expert, was to foster learning and create an environment of understanding and support for one another,” said Kennesaw State University spokeswoman Tammy DeMel. “Attendees were asked to work together and then were invited to join the group with which they identify.”
The April 13 event “is being mischaracterized” as segregation, DeMel added….of course, because how could anyone misconstrue the physical separation of students, based solely on the color of their skin, as ‘segregation’? SOURCE
