Give it to them.

In just one semester you will have a 98% black student body paying nothing to be there. Let the professors who teach this leftist BS get laid off and salaries slashed because there is no tuition income.

As they say, be careful what you wish for

The concerning part isn't that a group of student council leaders think that it's the socially prudent thing to do, offer reparations to blacks, but that these same people will be graduating, and like it or not, in charge (as a group) of the country at some point in the future.

They will take these same values and ignorance with them to jobs, government positions, congress where they will try to implement the same ideas in 30 to 40 years, at least that's the plan...

Although I agree with this, there are some exceptions and a few bright spots. A good friend of mine had a problem with his high school aged son (junior, I believe). He got into some trouble at school for pulling some pranks like toilet paper and eggs on the school. It did cause some damage and when my friend found out he was livid. Now my friend grew up on a ranch in Montana. Spent his life in the service. His wife also grew up on a ranch (Idaho, I believe). They are good people and were NOT happy with his actions. This happened when he was stationed in Quantico. His son never had a want or a hard life except for moving around. Well after this incident he got a dose of reality. My buddy kicked him out of the house. Not like in the street, he was under 18, but he pitched a tent in the backyard in Stafford and that was where he lived for the rest of the school year. He was allowed in the house to shower and take meals then it was back to his tent. When summer break came he was shipped off to grandad's ranch in Montana. Where grandad proceeded to WEAR HIS ASS OUT. When that young man returned in the fall (and I use the term young man because he became one) his attitude was a complete 180 from what it was previously. He has a whole new outlook on life. He is finishing school and headed to college. And he takes NOTHING for granted anymore.

I keep hearing that phrase from the leftist- "We need to start a converstation", as if we havent tried. Take a look at Berkeley, thats how you idiots behave when we try to have a "converstation". Theres no need to negotiate with irrational, illogical peons like that.

Actually, I support this. I think out country owes a free college education to anyone who was directly owned as a slave prior to 1863. Honestly their civil rights were infringed and they are owed reparations and a chance to succeed.

Furthermore, anyone who's ability to get a college education was negativity impacted by Jim Crow Laws prior to 1965 should be offered discounted tuition.

Although I wholeheartedly support compensation for any living verified slave (I would require a receipt, fraud is rampant nowadays), my family did not come to this country until 1912. Therefore my ancestors, myself, and my progeny are exempt from any and all deals made to provide monetary relief. Someone else will have to pay.

Mr. Binky and Mr. Wire: Bingo. I think that is a compromise that anyone can accept. Fair, targeted to the right recepients, and generous to a fault. Good thinking there, I'm in.

"Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy."
"I did," said Ford, "it is."
"So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't the people get rid of the lizards?"
"It honestly doesn't occur to them. They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates the government they want."
"You mean they actually vote for the lizards."
"Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course."
"But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?"
"Because if they didn't vote for a lizard, then the wrong lizard might get in."

Sorry to hear of this. Not quite a Sigforum parent's worst nightmare, but losing a child to the dark side would be a hard pill to swallow.

Luckily my son has strong conservative values finishing up his freshman year. It helps he is away from CA and in Texas. He is just disappointed he does not have access to his favorite firearms while living in the dorms.

Let's just cut to chase. I say we give all minorities a living wage, a house, car, college tuition and an entertainment allowance. Whites have put so many obstacles in the path of every minority that it's virtually impossible for them to succeed in life. It's the right thing to do and all white people are rich and can easily afford to pay for this justice.

I'll bet if they showed these idiots the cost of tuition & fees for next semester based on current population, they'd change their minds.

That is how character is built. Unfortunately, that story is the exception. There are far too many teapot tyrants being groomed by our society. One day some of them will have power when each of us is at our most vulnerable.

I do not understand these whiny idiot people. I am Filipino, the Spanish made my people slaves for hundreds of years, yet you do not see Filipinos asking for reparations for something that happened hundreds of years ago. How about my Jewish brothers and sisters ? I do not see them asking the Egyptians for reparations ? So many people in this world now think they are entitled or use some kind of crutch about something that happened in the past. Ok enough of my rant. God Bless Smile
