University Student Group Votes To Give Free Tuition To Black People

April 20, 2017| by Brian Anderson

For whatever reason the message of equality from the 1960’s civil rights movement is completely lost on the new generation. They want separate but equal facilities for minorities and in many case separate but unequal rules. The Western Kentucky University Student Government Association juts passed a resolution to give free tuition to all black people, because charging them the same thing as everyone else is apparently “white supremacy.”

This is more of the same silliness and I almost didn’t write about it, but something caught my eye. This is from the BG Daily News:

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

It could be accomplished one of two ways.  The state of Kentucky could have a special tax for "cracker" gradates of Western K where they pay in their taxes the cost of the educations of all blacks.  Or.  The tuition of "honkies" could be raised so they pay for the educations while in college. :whistle:

Let me guess that this resolution has no money behind it

Start paying for the "free" tuition out of administrative and teaching staff salaries and watch how fast they want to shut it down.

Nothing should make a man happier than knowing his government couldn't care less about him.
I'd rather lose defending the constitution than win at its expense.

No problem, just add the cost to the student loans of these students that voted for this idiocy. They have the right to spend their money, not mine, and I don't owe any Black, White, Brown, Red, Purple or any other color of person a damn thing for history. How about we charge all descendant's of slaves in America reparations to the families of all who fought and died or were maimed fighting for their freedom. I bet if that happened you would see a drastic decrease of those who claim victim status from American slavery.

The people who voted for this have no power to fund or implement it

They're counting on mom and dad to fund it, as usual.

Student activity fees, sports program money, to name a couple of targets, and PB & J on day old bread in the dining hall.

This might not be a popular concept, but how about reimbursing the former owners who were divested of their property with an ex post facto law without compensation. In gold coin at face value, of course? So many grievances so long ago. Time to quit.

None of the people who were owned or who owned anyone is still alive. Few who survived the war from the South finished it with the landholdings they had at the start, and many lost everything, whether it was a farm, plantation, mill, or other business, so I would call into question the whole 'logic' that they benefited from slave labor. What they had by 1880, they had built/rebuilt by themselves, and many moved west, having lost it all.

"University Student Group Votes To Give Free Tuition To Black People..."

Sounds like a blatant violation of the "equal protection clause" of the Fourteenth Amendment.

If I was in a conservative action group that challenges the left on campus issues, that's how I'd frame the attack.

At the very least any amount of money they may get should be lowered by a proportion of slaves owned by black and slaves owned by whites.  However, if a slave were owned by a black there should be no recovery and to get recovery, shouldn't a person have to prove their ancestors were owned by whites?

I wonder how they define "black people"?  Is there some kind of test?  Maybe something like a litmus scale that can be used to determine skin tone?  What if someone spends a lot of time in the tanning booth, a la Rachel Dolezol?  Or, does a Shaun King?  How do you determine who pays and who doesn't?

I've heard that most black ancestors came to American after slavery ended. How can we figure out which is which?

At the outbreak of hostilities, the number of free blacks in MD was almost equal to the number of slaves (within a thousand). Who is descended from which, and how does that get 'distributed'? If Gggggrandpapy was free, and Gggggrandma wasn't, does that mean a half share?
