Wisconsin students demand free tuition for black students to fight white supremacy

all-white-people-are-racist-hoodie
What do you expect from a university that wouldn’t denounce one of their student’s selling the above “All White People Are Racist” hoodies?
From Yahoo: (MADISON, Wis.: AP) — Black students should be offered free tuition and housing at the University of Wisconsin-Madison because blacks were legally barred from education during slavery and university remains out of reach for black students today, the student government said Wednesday.
The Associated Students of Madison said in a resolution that students from suburban high schools are overrepresented. The group said consideration of ACT and SAT scores in applications restricts opportunities for the poor and thus upholds “white supremacy.”
Race relations have been a contentious issue at the Wisconsin’s flagship campus for months. The university has proposed some measures aimed at improving diversity.
“The university’s rhetoric suggests that it is committed to diversity and inclusion, so this legislation compels the university to move towards action — which is imperative,” the resolution’s author, ASM Student Council Rep. Tyriek Mack, said in a statement. “If no one challenges the university’s empty promises, then the racial composition will remain stagnant.”
The resolution demands free access to the university for all black people, including former inmates. That means free tuition, free housing and no fees, Mack said. That would save a black resident undergraduate student about $20,000 a year.
The resolution goes on to call for the university to use 10 percent of donations to bolster financial aid and study the feasibility of test-optional and geographically weighted admissions.
The language mirrors demands that the Black Liberation Collective, a national network of black youth focused on higher education, has made to nearly 90 campuses across the country.
Black students currently make up about 2 percent of Madison enrollment. University spokeswoman Meredith McGlone noted the proportion of “students of color” has grown from 11 percent to 15 percent over the last decade. She said the school supports the spirit of the resolution but that it’s unclear whether the methods it proposes are legal or the best way to accomplish those goals.
Chancellor Rebecca Blank has proposed giving first-generation transfers from two-year schools free tuition for a year, contingent on funding in the upcoming state budget, and a recent $10 million donation will be invested in expanding the Chancellor’s Scholarship Program, which supports minorities, McGlone said.
ACT and SAT scores are not the only factor in admissions to the university in Madison, but their inclusion is required under regent policy, McGlone said.
Last spring, pictures of swastikas and Adolf Hitler were posted on a Jewish student’s door, someone hurled racial slurs and spat at a black student in a dorm, and police arrested a black student during class for spray-painting anti-racist messages on campus buildings. Minority students spent the semester pressuring administrators for change.
Last month, a student who was imprisoned for burning down two black churches tried to start a white supremacist group on campus. He abandoned his efforts following intense backlash, but the student government criticized Blank for saying he had a legal right to express his views.
The university in August proposed building a black cultural center, introducing discussions about social differences and expanding ethnic studies courses and diversity training for all faculty and staff.
In-state undergraduate tuition has been frozen for four years and Gov. Scott Walker has proposed a 5 percent tuition cut for resident undergraduates in the second year of the upcoming state budget. Representatives of the Legislature’s budget-writing committee haven’t responded to an email Thursday seeking comment.
Asked for comment on the resolution, Mike Mikalsen, an aide to state Sen. Steve Nass — a Republican and one of the university’s most outspoken critics — responded by calling ASM a waste of student fees.
Madison Bevan, a sophomore from Los Angeles who identifies herself as black-white biracial, called free access for black students a good way to bolster their numbers on campus. She said one student in her dorm told her she was the first black person they’ve ever seen. “There’s such a small number of (black) people on campus, it’s very easy to feel like you’re alone,” she said.
Chinese graduate student Yuhong Zhu said the resolution is awkward and he’d rather see more scholarships than a blanket offer of free access. “I wouldn’t appreciate if the school offered me free tuition just because I’m a minority,” he said. “We should at least have to work hard for it.”
Jared Akers, a white student at the school, said the resolution was “odd” and that free access for blacks was unfair. “That,” he said, “kind of seems like a handout more than doing them any favors.”

So we’ve gone from blacks demanding equal rights — a good thing — to now blacks having MORE and BETTER rights.

Trump keeps saying he’s bringing jobs back,

These mindless idiots should read their history books. Slavery in the USA ended in 1965 over 150 years go. If they give free housing and tuition to only black kids the other races will have to pay higher fees to pay for that. When are these “CHILDREN” going to learn money doesn’t grow on trees and life isn’t free or fair!

Another Khazarian canard designed to hammer a wedge between Americans. One need not like black-Americans, but keep in mind that they are the canary in the Khazarian occupied coalmine that is the American country. Being lower down the social and evolutionary ladder, black-Americans have succumb more rapidly and earlier to the Khazarians’ corrosive machinations. Take black-Americas’ condition not as affirmation, but as a warning. The Khazarians are well on the way to doing to the rest of America what they have succeeded in doing to black-America. 5:11. “The second secret requisite for the success of our government is comprised in… Read more »

Free tuition for blacks is a ridiculous request.

I think all those white students at the Univ. of Wisconsin should be listened to and accommodated.
Each and every one of these students will be replaced with a black student who shall use the white students tuition to attend.
These white students will then be forced to work to support these blacks till they complete their studies.
May you get what you wish for.
Libtards of the world unite.

The guy’s shirt says,”ALL WHITE PEOPLE ARE RACISTS”. Okay-it takes even MORE OF A RACIST to believe that enough to put it on a shirt he wears in public. How about “ALL BLACK PEOPLE ARE AS STUPID AS THIS BLACK RACIST”? I don’t believe that any more than you do,but they sure are working hard to make that a TRUE statement.

I got my secondary education in a majority black school system. Upon graduation, at least 30 white students had scholarship offers to major colleges, including Ivy League colleges. Not a single black student received a scholarship offer, despite all of these universities actively seeking to find viable black candidates. Further, of the 100+ Honor Society members, exactly ONE (1) was black. This is not discrimination. This is a poor work ethic, bad parenting, and a general desire to blame everyone but themselves for their own problems. Here’s an idea — instead of free college, give these blacks free capes and… Read more »

I married into a black family some 16 years ago. Things are working out pretty well so far. That means that over half of my relatives are black. Like any sufficiently large family, some have college degrees, most do not. Some are into “being black” and I give them a fairly wide berth. Others are into making life work on whatever terms life offers.
But one thing I am absolutely certain of is that, of the ones I have met, NONE of them are this stupid.

Although Affirmative Action did help some minorities over the years, it’s time to end it and expect individuals to be responsible for earning their education by their own merit. Throughout the country, we have a huge community college system. It’s a great way to start for many students and gives them time to decide if and how they may move forward educationally. Many students of all races are not meant to get a university degree and would benefit from entering the trades or other certification fields. And, if individuals don’t have family to help with university tuition, there are loads… Read more »

Where can I sign up for equal compensation to this because my 3X great-grandfather fought in the 56th PA Regiment to free the slaves? He was killed after serving the first 3 month enlistment, re-enlisted for 3 years, was wounded at Gettysburg, came back to re-enlist once again, was wounded again at the Wilderness, recovered to come back to fight again in the trenches of Petersburg, & was killed at Dabney’s Saw Mill (Hatcher’s Run) in Februrary 1865, just 2 months before the end of the war. He was in his mid-40’s, left SIX children essentially orphaned, b/c back then…women… Read more »

Perhaps they could just charge them for each class they pass. I’m sure it work out about the same.
