I started to lead off my comments with “where will it end,” but thought better of that question since we all know that if this push for what can only be described as discrimination extortion is successful, it will never end. Separate but equal wasn’t enough, laws against racial discrimination weren’t enough, affirmative action wasn’t enough, electing a black president wasn’t enough. What will it take to convince blacks that their success is up to them – it’s their responsibility? Now flushed with the apparent success of blaming every problem in the black community on white people, the black racists want blacks to automatically go to the head of the UW-Madison admissions line, jumping ahead of qualified whites simply because they’re black. If that isn’t discrimination, what is?
To the black activists, reparations are the Holy Grail; the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. If they’re able to break through and get white people to accept the concept, we’ll be saddled with the slavery millstone forever.
A group called the “Associated Students of Madison” student council called for the university to open its doors to more black students by changing admission policies and increasing need-based financial aid. That’s a great idea, to get more black students into college, but by way of being prepared, learning and studying, not as a handout.
ASM representative Tyriek Mack, sponsor of the legislation, said in a statement that it is time the university acted on its declarations on diversity and inclusion.
“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,” Mack said. “If no one challenges the university’s empty promises, then the racial composition will remain stagnant.”
The lengthy resolution adopted Wednesday references a “chilling effect” of the use of SAT and ACT scores on low-income students who want to apply to UW-Madison; the disparate representation in campus applications of students from suburban high schools; an achievement gap between majority and minority students dating back to enslavement.
They complain that current admission policies restricts opportunities for the poor and thus upholds the “white supremacy” currently being practiced.
In other words, black students are not scoring as well on the ACT or SAT tests and that is the fault of white slave-owning racist ancestors.
The resolution concludes by demanding:
“Reparations for the systemic denial of access to high-quality education opportunity in the form of full and free access for all black people (including undocumented, currently and formerly incarcerated people) to UW-Madison.
Free access means free tuition, free housing and no fees, Mack told the AP.
You’ll note that the free tuition, housing and fees would also apply to undocumented individuals (illegal aliens) as well as currently and formerly incarcerated people (felons).
I guess it must be because I’m a racist that I’m aghast at the very idea that blacks who can’t pass usual college admissions tests should be moved to the front of the line – in front of qualified whites – along with illegals and felons. Silly me, when the blacks take control, we whites will become the slaves – even though we are the majority.
That’s a great idea! That will serve the country well.
Please note the dripping sarcasm in that last statement.
