The student government at Wisconsin's most prominent university has passed legislation calling for "free and full access" to the school for "all black people" as reparations for what it describes as "systemic denial" of minorities from the "white supremacist" institution.
The resolution passed at University of Wisconsin-Madison was introduced by a group called "The Blackout Project," which argues that the "school is not inclusive, accessible, or affordable for Black students in Wisconsin" and that it knowingly benefits from "practices of exclusion and white supremacy."
Among the demands in the resolution is "full and free access for all black people," including "currently and formerly people."
"Making reparations for the systemic denial of high-quality education in the form of free and opportunities in the form of free and full access for all Black People—including undocumented and current or formerly incarcerated people—to UW-Madison," it demands.
It also demands the creation of a task force to consider "test-optional admissions and geographically weighted admissions" that would give preference to students in cities.
The goal of the resolution, according to an op-ed written by a student government member who authored the legislation, is to force the administration to attach real action to its use of phrases such as "inclusion" and "diversity."
"As students, we understand that despite the University's rhetoric, this school is not inclusive, accessible, or affordable for Black students in Wisconsin," wrote Tyriek Mack, who sponsored the resolution. "The University is not blind to this reality; in fact, the University’s brand and prestige benefits from their practices of exclusion and white supremacy."
Mack defended the call for free and full tuition to the university for all black people—a demand taken directly from the Movement for Black Lives policy platform—because he claimed the university perpetuates "white supremacy."
You made me snort my soda through my nose! That's probably the funniest thing I've read today! Thank you. I really needed that laugh!!!
Sorry, Hilary, but if you are demanding that "basic English" is a class that should be offered, I think it would be good if you were in command of basic English yourself. I take great pride in our wonderful language, American English. - Btw, it is "....should donate THEIR vacation time...."
These people will still be standing there with their hands out. Poor me. They deserve it. And just think how much $$$$$$$$$ will go into the far left communist teachers unions. They will all be dumb as boards. Whether they are standing up in front of the class or sitting in the class playing with their I phone.
The students are traditionally FAR LEFT, now they have moved even more so. They pay for nothing. The take everything. "Other People's Money" is freely demanded and spent by these budding liberals/socialists/communists/progressives/thugs/Atheists/Democrats.
I've never owned any slaves. My parents have never owned slaves. My grandparents never owned any slaves. I feel NO OBLIGATION, what-so-ever to pay repatriations to satisfy these little "snotfakes" guilty consciences.
The time has come for blacks to get off the dole, take personal responsibility, and invest in themselves, rather than waiting for increased pocket picking!
Wisconsin is a very strange state, harshly divided into rational and irrational camps.
Reparations were paid in Blood by Republicans who freed the slaves. Their Democrat Bolshevik, Jim Crow, anti equal rights, KKK party are liable for any payment due.
We've been paying reparations since LBJ............it's called WELFARE.
The DOJ needs to review this referendum and together with the Department of Education bring a hate crimes, and civil rights action against this group and the University... cutting off all government grants and student federal student loans... among other things.
It is time to enforce civil rights law fairly... too, end REVERSE discrimination, hate speech, and unlawful acts, which deny any citizen of their civil rights. It is time for the Federal Government to restore the rights of the Caucasian population in America... too, end the hate speech and discrimination coming out of its institutions of higher education.
Claims of 'White Supremacy' are a lie and in fact, quite the opposite exists... Caucasian's have become the target of systemic institutional racial prejudice... they are the new victims of racial bias and unlawful discrimination. It is time to set the record straight, AG Sessions... start law suits and coordinate with the various Cabinet officers of the Federal Government, to legally end institutional discrimination against Caucasians in America.
Concepts right out of the Socialist Party Platform.
Bull Shit. Get a Job like the rest of us. The free Days are over.
