Students vote to give blacks free
tuition at Western Kentucky University

Washington Times, by Jessica Chasmar

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

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.

Well, now that they passed it, the University should just pass the cost of each black student on to the tuition of each of the white students that voted for it....

Problem solved....

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!

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.

Doesn´t that seem fair?

This is clear discrimination. If they allow this, two things should happen: white students leave and a 1099 to the students who get a free education.

It will become another "historically black college" so the Obola´s can speak there.

So, this resolution is actually meant as a "conversation starter".

A good start would be to explain the need for this unlawful part of the resolution: "free access for all black people (including undocumented, currently and formerly incarcerated people....)".

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.

Hillary Clinton wants to preach. That’s what she told Bill Shillady, her long-time pastor, at a recent photo shoot for his new book about the daily devotionals he sent her during the 2016 campaign. Scattered bits of reporting suggest that ministry has always been a secret dream of the two-time presidential candidate: Last fall, the former Newsweek editor Kenneth Woodward revealed that Clinton told him in 1994 that she thought “all the time” about becoming an ordained Methodist minister. She asked him not to write about it, though: “It will make me seem much too pious.” The incident perfectly captures

The Department of Justice on Friday released 413 pages of emails related to a controversial private meeting between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch during the FBI’s investigation into then-presidential-candidate Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi emails. The FBI said earlier such records did not exist. This discharge of information is the result of a lawsuit filed against the DOJ by the American Council for Law and Justice (ACLJ) in November 2016. The newly-released emails mostly include DOJ officials’ conversations with reporters, who were seeking comment on the meeting between Lynch and the former president on an airport tarmac in

WASHINGTON — Senators Tom Cotton and Ben Sasse have already been to Iowa this year, Gov. John Kasich is eyeing a return visit to New Hampshire, and Mike Pence’s schedule is so full of political events that Republicans joke that he is acting more like a second-term vice president hoping to clear the field than a No. 2 sworn in a little over six months ago.
