The Associated Students of Madison at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are demanding free tuition to all black students in reparations for blacks being refused and education during slavery, which ended 152 years ago.
Okay, I can buy that. All they need to do is prove that they were denied an education while they were slaves and I’ll agree to it. The funny thing is that the university has 15% of it’s students who are black compared to the US population at 12.3% .
The Associated Students of Madison at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has demanded reparations for all black students, including former convicts, citing the prohibition of black education during slavery, as reported by NBC 15.
Meredith Mcglone, a UWM spokesperson, stated that black students constitute 15% of the student body at the school. This figure is slightly higher than the 12.3% of black people in the U.S. Ms. Mcglone also noted that, in the last decade, the percentage of black students at UWM increased from 11% to 15%.
The move marks the latest of discriminatory practices enacted by university administrations or student organizations over the past couple of years.
