The racism of modern-day reparations

Stop this ride and let me off…please!

Reparations?  Free college education?  What the hell is going on with these snowflakes?  Are they ever attending class learning anything that they can use to get a job?

Betsy DeVos – Might you consider starting work today and getting rid of the Department of Education, you know, putting the responsibility of trying to teach these spoiled, liberal brats something useful, back on the states where it belongs?

Huh?

Nothing says social justice like modern-day reparations. Strike that. Nothing says racism like modern-day reparations. Just over a week ago, the Western Kentucky University (WKU) student government passed a resolution recognizing slavery as a “debt that will never be paid.” Nonetheless, in a 19-10 vote they attempted to do just that – approving a resolution advocating free tuition for all black students. Sadly, all they did was assuage their white guilt and set race relations back a generation.

Personally, it’s offensive to me that college kids who claim to want to help blacks believe we’re so intellectually inferior that we need them to give us a hand up. How racist is that? Secondly, where does this end? Free cars? Houses? Savings at the gas pump? I’m sure some pimple faced left-wing college students can find “institutional racism” in every industry imaginable if they’re searching for it. That doesn’t mean it exist. Thirdly, by claiming blacks need reparations the white students are admitting they’re racist even though they’re the ones trying to help them! Huh? Exactly. It makes no sense! Essentially, they’re telling blacks that racial harmony is an unachievable goal.

How can WKU claim to be a mecca for tolerance, diversity and inclusion when they’re excluding others? Colleges and universities already meet their racial quotas whenever they award grants based upon skin color. At the time Republican President Richard Nixon and black Republican Art Fletcher worked to institute affirmative action I believe it was needed, because we were just coming out of the civil rights era. Since then, we’ve seen interracial marriages soar, prominent black figures across the country, particularly in sports and entertainment, inspire people of all backgrounds, more college-educated blacks graduate with degrees and enter the workforce to work hand-in-hand with whites, and multi-ethnic churches are everywhere.

Does this mean racism had come to an end in America? Don’t be silly! Of course not! Racism, whether it be from whites, blacks or any other nationality, will never completely end as long as God allows men to have free will. However, due to societal pressures and generation Xers that were growing up largely color-blind, race relations were improving. Over time hearts were being changed.

All WKU students have done is given additional rights to blacks as opposed to equal rights. Though WKU President Gary Ransdell let it be known the university would not offer free tuition to blacks, the wrongheaded message of the vote still lingers.

If the administration were to acquiesce to the student government’s demand, I’d imagine more black students would apply to WKU, but I suspect fewer whites, Asians and Latinos would. Eventually, non-paying black students would outnumber non-black students.

Many blacks who probably haven’t experienced a bit of racism, besides perceived racism or “micro-aggressions,” their entire lives will now be told they’re victims, despite being afforded the privilege of attending college.

You can’t combat historical injustice with modern-day injustice. In order for everyone to be treated fairly you must treat everyone the same.

Sadly, advocates for reparations at WKU aren’t looking to end racism or even advance race relations in America, but to sustain it.

    Consider America’s RISE to Planet SuperPower…

    … we didn’t find Superman’s cloak …?

    … nor the Klingon cloaking device!?

    Aaahhhhh… we allowed the ‘states’ to be our education laboratories…

    … to educate our masses of huddling LEGAL IMMIGRANTS…

    … who all worked 60 hours a week to assure their children would be able to become doctors / scientists / engineers / biologists / business leaders / …

    … REAL PROFESSIONALS using REAL CAPITALISM …

    … to propel the USA to 25% of the world’s GDP… w/ but 5% of its people!!

    THEN… 50 years ago… coinciding with the Great Society War on Poverty… we introduced the “Federally Educated” NannyState of wasting $140 TRILLION on the Laydowns…
    … living in their parent’s garage / basement / guest room reconverted back to kiddie porn flatscreen safe rooms…
    … because we got so-o-o-o many lacking the common sense to want a career more challenging than flipping burgers at McDonalds for $15 an hour…
    … so-o-o-o they get high and take to the DNC streets of Che Guevara Bloody Commie Revolution as …

    SHEEPLE COMMIE ZOMBIES

    THAT is why we need to unplug the DC Money Laundry…
    … starting with the most obvious MO FREE STUFF no ‘state’ can ever afford!!

    90% of Betsy DeVos’ Federal Education Dept “budget”…

    … extended yet again under GOP Lackeyship to October…

    … is FREE STUFF for those already getting FREE STUFF…

    … to allow kids lacking parenting to EAT FREE FOOD ALL DAMN DAY LONG!!

    The simple is so OBVIOUS… the US Constitution did not authorize by enumerating as a power our Fed GOVT to provide ANY “specific citizen welfare”!

    EVERY THANG our Fed GOVT was authorized to do was that on a Republic…
    … doing Internaitonal Stuff mostly – like sending our Navy to kill lots of Tripoli pirates preventing trade (kinda’ like Somalian pirates today)…
    … or thinking only the Feds might deliver mail between Boston and DC as our Founders could not know FedEx / UPS / etc. would be much finer…

    THAT is why we gave our Federal GOVT the power to collect taxes on thangs going on between the commerce of states and foreign nations…

    … and WHY before lying his ass off on that Fed Inc Tax back in 1911 our first really Commie LIAR Woodrow Wilson first obtained that Amendment to cover his LIES about only taxing those “feelthy reech bastereds” the Commie media trolls against since Aristotle’s days!!

    FDR knew full well his Social Security was ILLEGAL… he gestapo brownbooted SCOTUS… LYING once again it was but a ‘voluntary’ safety net… that would be handled “just like pensions are sold by the Met and Pru”!!

    LBJ built his entire Great Society expanding FDR’s LIE…
    … “secured by the full faith and credit of the USA” was his infamous line that remains the “day that shall live in infamy” …
    … as he deposited our “payroll taxes” into his Great Society War on Poverty — $140 TRILLION later we have yet to win a single battle after 50 more years of BIG LIES!!
    … and a bloated Federal GOVT with 75% of its ‘spending’ outside the founding Republic’s charter!!

    ONE of former GOV Jeb Bush’s ‘leagacies’ for Florida…

    … ONE FLORIDA…

    … eliminated ALL affirmative actions in our ‘state’ that violated inherently the Civil Rights Act of 1964 – that simply restated our US Constitution as amended by 13th and 14th Amendments – and that useful but unneeded any longer 1954 SCOTUS interpretation of allowing “separate but equal”.

    VOILA… ‘state’ contracts w/ Minority Owned Firms rose above any “Federal Guidelines being tracked by colour”… more Minority Students are graduating our Colleges & Universities…
    … even as over 60% of some “Minority Students” are being given special FREE STUFF at our Title 1 schools deprived of being ‘equal’ by their Federal GOVT NannyState??

    NOW… isn’t is “Separate and totally discriminatory”…

    … most all the stuff the Sheeple Commie Zombies are proclaiming??

    .. insisting on MO FREE STUFF for Blacks / Browns / Yellows / Reds…

    … with MO SPECIAL FREE STUFF for Indian Tribes for gambling casinos and cheap cigarettes…
    … reserved safe space against toxic masuclinearity white privilege…

    TOTALLY ILLEGAL OBVIOUS to any 5th grader of average education??

    Part of that ‘slave reparation’ mentality comes from HollyWeird…

    … including the ‘horrors of allowing another Ferguson’ in LA …

    … as the exclusively Black/Female Leadership of “BOSCH” LAPD is so-o-o-o corrupted in violating every rule with ‘extreme violence… (LA is 65% HISPANIC???)

    … attempting to clean up the mess of nasty Corporations / HMO’s (excepting Kaiser) / guns on the street (LA is ‘probably won’t issue’)

    … with mostly WHites doing the terrible nasty stuff… cleaned up by honorable Black / LBGTQ-PAB Females /

    … with extra doses of homo-eroticism with style points for mixing race of LBGTQ-PAB ‘stereotypically’ flamboyant to assure clarity of their message to drugdazed Sheeple Commie Zombies…

    … and oxymoronically threatening the serial killer with Death Penalty Lethal Injections in a state that hasn’t enforced any legal death sentences ordered by their courts since 2006??

    AND, yes… as with most of Prime’s offerings the past several years… the music soundtracks are horrifically b-a-a-d-d. The latest software upgrade sometimes allows fast-forwarding past the drivel!!
