Title: Students vote to give blacks free tuition at Western Kentucky University

The student government at Western Kentucky University on Tuesday voted in favor of giving free tuition to black students.

The school’s Student Government Associationpassed a resolution by 19-10 supporting slavery reparations for black students in the form of free tuition and free access to the public Bowling Green campus.

The resolution also recommends that the university create a task force to “assess the feasibility of test-optional admissions and geographically-weighted admissions,” claiming that some standardized testing poses a disadvantage for needy students and perpetuates inequality and “white supremacy,” The Bowling Green Daily News reported.

“We demand reparations for the systemic denial of access to high quality educational opportunities in the form of full and free access for all black people (including undocumented, currently and formerly incarcerated people to Western Kentucky University),” the resolution reads, according to the Daily News.

SGA President Jay Todd Richey told the newspaper that the long-shot resolution is meant as a “conversation starter.”

“Due to discriminatory education, housing and employment policies that have disproportionately held back Black Americans, we believe this resolution is ultimately a conversation starter for discussing how to make college both more affordable and accessible for communities of color and marginalized people in general,” he wrote in an email.

“People can debate the prudence of actually eliminating tuition for all Black students, and it’s extremely unlikely regardless, but the point is to have a real conversation about how we eliminate racial disparities in higher education,” he said. “We need to consider making reparations in the form of more equitable college admissions policies, financial assistance and campus support and resources, and we hope this provocative statement will launch an important dialogue about to achieve that.”

Andrea Ambam and Brian Anderson, two SGA senators who wrote the resolution, said it was inspired by a similar resolution approved in February by students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the Daily News reported.

The university has yet to comment on the resolution.

Okay. You got them in. Now how do you keep them from flunking out?

C'mon. They're not "in". This was just virtue-signalling by some very liberal students in the student government, a bunch of creepy kids who love student government functions.

The school will pay no attention to this. Unlimited admission for free for all blacks and, BTW, other minorities and illegal aliens? They'd be out of business in less than a year. And the board of regents knows it.

Let's say they do decide to give away even 10% free tuition to these minorities. Beyond the fact they would get sued for doing so, you would still have the current student body paying 10% more for their tuition to cover the new freeloaders (because the staff will not take any pay cuts to cover it). So a student might go from a $250K debt for a B.A. to a $275K debt almost overnight, all so a bunch of freeloaders could party away at their school.

Not going to happen.

They don't understand that "free" means someone else paying for it.

If they really wanted to make this happen each white student could simply sponsor a black student by taking their SATs for them and paying their tuition. Then go to their classes and take their tests. Then graduate, get a job and send them all the money "they" made.

That's the only way it will work. And it's not much different than the system we have.

People are always in favor of sticking it to the rich until they find out that they are the rich.

Suddenly, they find a new cause to care about.

Cool! They also personally agreed to pick up and pay the tab too,right?

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.

The same way every other school does,by passing them if they just show up once a week. They are not white,so they must NOT be allowed to fail. Didn't you get the memo?

Or give them extra credit for, say, being black.
