Students at Western Kentucky University voted this week to give their black peers free tuition as a way to make amends for slavery, but administrators say it's not going to happen.
President Gary Ransdell issued a statement Thursday after the student government passed its "Resolution to Support Reparations" laying out the reasons black students should receive a free education at the Bowling Green school.
"We appreciate the Student Government Associations interest in these issues, but its important to clarify that their resolution is not an official position taken by the university," Ransdell wrote. "I have read the SGA resolution, and I understand that their intent was to spark a conversation, but the university will not adopt any such policy."
The two-page resolution, which got the go-ahead from student leaders on Tuesday, lists its purpose as to acknowledge "that there is a debt that will never be paid." It references an achievement gap between minority and majority students, alluding not only to slavery but also the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision and the fact that "standardized tests perpetuate and uphold white supremacy."(continued)

Logic and reason are racist.
Will they have the “one drop test” like the Nazis or go with the S.A. apartied 51% rule?
How is it that the legacy of slavery has allegedly held back people, when blacks have achieved so much, in so many different fields of endeavor?
How is there any legacy of slavery now, when slavery ended in 1865?
What would change? they already get into college on the basis of having dark skin. They get extra points added to their test scores for being an “oppressed” minority. They don’t pay full tuition, with all those pigmentation scholarships. They get promoted even though they are failing. If they don’t get expelled before the end of their term, they get job offers that other people would never get.
So what is this “White Privilege” crap they talk about?
And yet blacks continue to appropriate all the aspects of white culture they do like.
How about a check-box for students who want their tuition to rise proportionately for each free-sponsored black person?
It would be used as often as a contribution box to pay extra taxes to help defray the national debt.
This is about socialism, conflict, the hegelian dialectic, keeping tension between the races so we dont work together against the uniparty elites fomenting all this to keep the spotlights off themselves.
I think any American born student who was a slave should get free tuition ;-)
Let the fun begin.
And have never thanked the descendants of the 600,000 white men who died freeing them between 1860 and 1865.
All they do is demand more and more and more. I am sick and tired of it.
Is that the new reality show, Klan Girl?
I guess the students there figure they based their decision on high principle. But how principled is it to vote to give away someone else’s money?
Lib socialists for years have indoctrinated them into believing they are owed it, deserve it and are entitled to it.
GIVE ME FREE STUFF
Not everybody who died in that war was fighting to free the slaves.
Among my ancestors of that episode, there were some who fought on either side. Also, a few that did not take-up arms for either side.
Those who play football get hush-hush perks on top of a full ride scholarship. There’s your reparations.
The Muslim world had slavery generations longer than the West and its colonies, and consumed many times more slaves. Yet there is no black population in those areas because most didn’t live to breed.
The students that want free tuition for blacks can go on record as such and their tuition fees will be boosted by
the cost to educate blacks students for free. Now let’s see how many want “free tuition” for blacks when it is not other people’s money but their own that is paying to boost their warped sense of moral superiority.
