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
Comments: Tucker Carlson is now interviewing Andrea Ambam mentioned in the article. It´s causing my blood pressure to rise to very unhealthy levels. Since giving them so much free stuff has worked out so well why not give them more. s/o
My daughter attended a private Christian university and they kept on raising the tuition. At the onset of her last semester, they raised it again. After several phone calls I had the opportunity to speak with the CFO. She said that she understood my concern and that the tuition was vastly exceeding increases in earnings. On the other hand, she said that a large portion of the increase was going to grants for students from poorer families. I said in no ambiguous terms "So, in effect, you´re making me pay for others without my knowledge or consent."
Without deference, she responded "Yes, that´s pretty much what it amounts to." My daughter finished her degree at another school.
I have no problem with ´free´ college as long as the school does not use tax dollars to pay for it. The college should not charge tuition, the book companies offer the books at their own expense, the professors teach for no pay, the parking, dorms, health fees and assorted ancillary costs are provided ´free´. Everyone involved offers their knowledge and wares for nothing. That would be free college!!
Will colleges large and small who agree please come forward and show yourselves....
Like a mortgage disclosure form, each university should have to provide a disclosure form to every student not receiving free tuition, which shows exactly how much providing "free" tuition costs them, as an individual. A separate line-item can show the amortized cost of their contribution, assuming they take the maximum allowed time to pay off their student loans. The cost should then be compared to the average starting salary of graduates in their major. A little reality, please!
Are the parents of the white students aware that they are funding education for the black students? If you want continue to increase the racial divide introduced to us by BHO, then just keep on keeping on.
This can´t last for long. In one or two years the school will be overwhelmed by an influx of new black students looking for free tuition. In short order the costs for non-black students will escalate so that soon it will become an all-black campus with no one paying tuition and it will collapse on itself. As Margaret Thatches famously said "The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people´s money."
Since this is based on the assumption that the blacks alive today, that will get the free tuitions, are the direct relatives of slaves and to make this anything but a one-sided racist scheme, let me propose the following.
Every white person that had relatives that fought for the Union to free the slaves receive the same reparation free tuition.
I had 18 relatives who fought for the Union and 3 who died in that conflict. They gave their lives so blacks in 2017 can have free tuition.
It seems to be a generally accepted idea that continuing one´s education at a college is a right whether one has the brain power or not, and that it should also be provided free of charge, the perfect recipe for system abuse.
Another case of liberals sticking their nose under the tent.Before long,whites will be the only ones paying tuition. I wouldn´t have a problem if they were majoring in something useful to the county but stuff like that is too hard for the to learn
This is merely moral preening on the part of the student government. They have no authority or power to dictate policy. And the likelihood of the school actually implementing a program like this is slim to none.
Too bad they aren´t actually learning anything. But they feel great about themselves.
Former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton came out swinging in a tweet Friday, saying if Senate Republicans pass their current healthcare bill, they will become the “death party.” Clinton’s post referenced an article from the Center for American Progress, an independent nonpartisan policy institute, which cited Harvard researchers as saying “the Senate bill could result in 18,000 to 28,000 deaths in 2026.” (Snip) The tweet from Clinton follows an earlier tweet urging her supporters to "speak out against" the bill.
Former President Obama’s foreign policy adviser and speechwriter Ben Rhodes implied Fox News was state-sanctioned media on Friday. “Avoiding on camera questions from independent media and favoring a state-sanctioned outlet would be cause for concern in any country,” Rhodes said in a tweet, linking to another tweet about White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer´s interview with the network. (Snip) Rhodes comment comes as the White House takes criticism for refusing to hold on-camera press briefings. CNN anchor John King also blasted Fox News’ close relationship with President Trump earlier in the day, calling the media organization “State TV” after accusing
Further illustrating the blatant collusion between the Democratic Party and the news media, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews and Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal (Conn.) spent Wednesday night predicting that history will look back on the Trump era and conclude the liberal media were “the heroes” who stood for decency and truth. Matthews swooned to Jeremy Peters of The New York Times that “one thing that is important from your end from The New York Times and the other great papers of the country is the public knew” nothing about the supposed Russia-Trump team ties since the Trump administration wouldn’t admit
A man fishing in British Columbia Friday managed to capture a slow-motion video of an eagle swooping down and taking the bait he was about to use to catch fish. Ashton Phillips was trying to take a picture of the bald eagle circling his boat, but instead of getting a great picture, he watched as it took away with salmon. “I saw this one eagle kind of circling and it was along the shoreline, so I took out my camera to snap a picture of it,” said Phillips. “All of a sudden out of nowhere, it started heading toward the
Events are turning me into a radical skeptic. I no longer believe what I read, unless what I am reading is an empirically verifiable account of the past. I no longer have confidence in polls, because it has become impossible to separate the signal from the noise. What I have heard from the media and political class over the last several years has been so spectacularly proven wrong by events, again and again, that I sometimes wonder why I continue to read two newspapers a day before spending time following journalists on Twitter. Habit, I guess. A sense of professional
RUSH: It’s 36 pages. It prints out on my printer (12-point font) to 36 pages. In a newspaper, 36 pages, and there’s nothing new in it! It’s incredible! It used to take me 25 minutes to mark this up. I finally, for the first time, used side by side on my laptop to do the markup instead of copy and paste. Well, I copied and pasted it but was side by side looking at… (interruption) No, the Washington Post has this incredible story: Obama’s Brave Struggle to Stop Russia from Tampering with Our Election. Not a thing new in it!
MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski compared President Donald Trump’s administration to North Korea Friday, saying “It does feel like a developing dictatorship.” “I will say you can do some work reading history and reading books about how dictatorship happen. The development of very negative forces taking over and what you are seeing is either this happening right now, or someone who’s not well. Very few options,” Brzezinski continued. Co-host Joe Scarborough tried to lighten to mood during the segment, saying, “I think it’s actually more like Hogan’s Heroes if anything else.” Brzezinski she quietly rebuked Trump once more saying
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch requested the Trump administration stop members of Congress and their staff from unlawfully purchasing, with taxpayer subsidies, health insurance through the District of Columbia’s small business exchange. The Judicial Watch request was made on June 14, 2017, to the Centers for Medicare Medicaid Services (CMS) as part of a process set out by the Department of Health and Human Services to reform the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), otherwise known as Obamacare. Judicial Watch wrote: The ACA requires states to create at least two exchanges: a small business exchange (referred to as “SHOP” in the
An Obama-appointed federal judge in Virginia early this month released a Honduran teen who sold drugs, illegally crossed the U.S. border, and was a member of the violent street gang MS-13. U.S. District Judge Elizabeth K. Dillon ordered the 17-year-old to be released because his “rights had been violated” after he crossed the Rio Grande and turned himself in to U.S. Border Patrol, the Washington Post reported. “The judge ruled that, by holding the illegal alien gangbanger without a hearing, the government violated his rights to due process and family unity,” according to Judicial Watch. The former gang-member’s identity has not been revealed
EXCLUSIVE: President Trump is considering calling a Camp David-style summit to address growing tensions among long-established U.S. allies in the Arab world and renew his call for those nations to confront the “crisis of Islamic extremism,” Fox News has learned. The gathering would follow Saudi Arabia, Egypt and five other Muslim countries severing diplomatic and commercial relations with Qatar. The regional powers had accused the tiny Gulf state of funding terrorism – blasting Qatar for allegedly boosting groups like ISIS, Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood and working with Iran to destabilize the region.
Baltimore, Md. businesses filed a lawsuit against the city for failing to protect their property during the 2015 Freddie Gray riots. Sixty plaintiffs joined the lawsuit alleging that the city and police department were inadequately prepared for the riots, leading to almost $13 million in damages to over 380 businesses, CBS Local Baltimore reported Thursday. “The City and other Defendants failed them when they adopted a policy of restraint and issued stand-down orders, caring more about the public perception that they feared would result with increased police presence than preventing what were clearly preventable riots,” Peter K. Hwang, an attorney for the
A longtime friend of James Comey is teasing what could be a bombshell story about the former FBI director and his interactions with President Trump. Benjamin Wittes, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, posted an ominous message on Twitter on Friday: “TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK.” The lawyer, who blogs at Lawfare, has posted similar messages in the past just before major stories in the ongoing Trump-Comey saga hit The New York Times. Wittes wrote on Twitter that the upcoming story could be published later Friday or on Monday. The heads-up comes a day after Trump revealed that
The end of the Supreme Court term looms, and with it the prospect — the terrifying prospect — of a retirement. Specifically, the retirement of Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, who will turn 81 next month and is the longest-serving current justice, named to the high court almost 30 years ago. So if Kennedy is inclined to retire, it is hard to begrudge him that choice. But his departure would be terrible for the court and terrible for the country. It could not come at a worse time. Any court vacancy these days, under a president of either party, triggers a battle
A feminist magazine is calling on all white women to “do their part to prevent white supremacy” and abort their white babies. This is sick beyond words. The feminist Medusa Magazine reported: In a progressive society, it is often white families that stand in the way of equality and justice. Systemic white supremacy depends, first and foremost, on the white family unit. When white conquerors forcefully penetrated the indigenous, egalitarian homeland of the Native peoples of America, they were quick to replicate their white societies, initiating their parasitism by establishing white plantations, headed by white fathers, submissive white mothers, and,
President Donald Trump broke a long standing White House tradition of hosting a dinner to celebrate Ramadan, a Muslim religious holiday. Hosting an Iftar dinner to mark the end of Ramadan fasting is a tradition that started in the Clinton years and was continued by Presidents Bush and Obama. Over the past two decades presidents have honored the holy day by hosting such a dinner. Thomas Jefferson was the first president noted in history to host Itfar in 1805 with an invitation to the dinner stating ´Dinner will be on the table precisely at sun-set – ´ the invitation read. ´The favour
A senior US Energy Department official appointed by the Trump administration once described Barack Obama as a “Kenyan creampuff”, Mark Zuckerberg as an “arrogant, self-hating Jew” and climate scientists as “cultists” and “nuts”, according to a report. William C Bradford, director of the Department’s Office of Indian Energy, also appeared to believe Mr Obama might refuse to step down after his two terms of office, asking “what will we do? Is a military coup the only answer?” The messages were posted on a since-deleted Twitter account, @Brute_Bradford, The Washington Post revealed. Previously Mr Bradford caused
An angry couple assaulted a Georgia fast food owner and her daughter outside a restaurant over a chicken and fries order — leaving the two women battered and authorities in disbelief. “I have a severely broken nose that requires surgery,” Quik Chik owner Jeanette Norris told the Daily News Sunday. “My daughter is scared. She was hit on her right side and has a black eye.” Norris was violently attacked at around 3 p.m. Thursday at the restaurant in Baxley after a couple complained about an order — prompting an argument that led suspect, Latasha Smith, to slap and punch
At last we know why Chicago’s homicide level is so out of control: Gangs, not police control the streets. The gangs know it; the police know it; and now, thanks to DNAinfo.com/Chicago, we know it. A week ago, Chicago street gangs held a huge party in a park, with a thousand people attending, some brandishing firearms, terrifying neighbors for hours. The police sent 25 squad cars, yet were outnumbered and unable to really do anything. (snip)Obviously, there is no political will to take back control of the streets. So everyone gets the message that gangs rule. No wonder the murder
The New York Post has an explosive report on the infamous “dossier” that tried to smear Donald Trump in order to swing the presidential election to Hillary Clinton. The source of the dossier is a Democratic Party opposition research firm called Fusion GPS: "The Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month threatened to subpoena the firm, Fusion GPS, after it refused to answer questions and provide records to the panel identifying who financed the error-ridden dossier, which was circulated during the election and has sparked much of the Russia scandal now engulfing the White House. Fusion GPS was on the payroll of
There is a place for contempt in our public discourse. We should have contempt for a regime in North Korea that brutalized a young American student named Otto Warmbier. We should have contempt for a regime in Syria that uses poison gas to massacre innocent men, women and children. We should have contempt for Islamic State terrorists who behead Americans, burn people alive in cages and systematically rape Yazidi girls. But we should not have contempt for each other. Yet, we do. Our politics today is descending into a bitter spiral of contempt. And we saw the consequences in the
Have you ever had an old grand-uncle that you haven´t seen in ages and that you have almost completely forgotten about suddenly show up from out of nowhere? His return quickly reminds you why you originally found him so annoying since he is still obsessed about the same grudges upon which he still continues expounding in an aimless manner. In this case it is former liberal talk show host Phil Donahue who appeared with Brian Stelter on his CNN Reliable Sources show on June 25. Yes, it was the same old by the numbers predictable liberal Phil and, of course,
Ramadan will come to an end this weekend with the major Muslim festival of Eid al-Fitr, and thus far President Donald Trump’s recognition of Islam’s holiest month has been limited to a statement that almost exclusively addressed violence and terrorism. Breaking with a tradition that dates back more than 20 years, to Bill Clinton’s administration, the White House will not be hosting an iftar—the meal Muslims consume to break their fast—in 2017.
A secretive Washington firm that commissioned the dubious intelligence dossier on Donald Trump is stonewalling congressional investigators trying to learn more about its connections to the Democratic Party. The Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month threatened to subpoena the firm, Fusion GPS, after it refused to answer questions and provide records to the panel identifying who financed the error-ridden dossier, which was circulated during the election and has sparked much of the Russia scandal now engulfing the White House. What is the company hiding? Fusion GPS describes itself as a “research and strategic intelligence firm” founded by “three former Wall
Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) blasted Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer Thursday for lying about President Donald Trump being under investigation when he knew otherwise. (Photo) Senator Grassley showed his disgust for the Democrat party, the fake news media and James Comey for continuing to mislead the public about President Trump being under investigation. James Comey refused to declare to the public that President Trump was not under investigation and Chuck Schumer continued to publicly state he was when he knew otherwise. Grassley: “After that meeting, I publicly called for Mr. Comey to tell the public what he had
