Student Government Demands Free Tuition For Black Students

Despite an over-representation of black students, a university’s student government has demanded that black students receive free tuition.

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.

California State University, Los Angeles offered its black students segregated housing. Moraine Valley Community College designated a section of one course “blacks-only” before eliminating the requirement following media attention.
