In America they are wanting to charge white Americans students money because of historical slavery...there going to be having a vote on this ...what do you think of this??

My personal opinion this is the most stupid thing I've ever heard...as slavery is still going on today.
Europe imported slaves from Africa to Europe....America imported slaves to America ...Africa was the largest slave trader at the time...where do these Americans think the slaves came from...do they think they stole them from Africa? Africans sold them..before them we had China with slaves Europeans with slaves Greeks, Spanish alsorts...should they all give old slaves so white euros should they get money....seems so stupid...

Some people believe black people should be given reparations. I think they shouldn't, it was in the past and slavery is abolished anyway.

The most blatant piece of vote buying with taxpayers money since Jezza promised to cancel students debt, then reneged on it.

Democrats are desperate.
They get around 90% of the black vote.
It would only need to drop to below 85% and they would be toast.
There is a campaign called "walk away " (started by a Jewish gay chap in NY) encouraging any disheartened Democrats, but especially bame voters, to leave the "political plantation". It's chipping away at that %.
This is their attempt to plug the leak.

One university does not America make. There was a vote and it passed but who really cares about $27 when you're paying tens of thousands already.

Why would any white student vote in favour of them loosing money because of something that happened before they were born?

I agree with this completely. On a related matter, I will be suing every German citizen for their ancestors involvement in the war, causing my grandparents stress and sacrificed wages. I would settle out of court for the measly sum of £5 million.

I'm guessing it's supposed to be compensation for their enslaved ancestors but the people who sold them away and the people who kept them should be responsible for that not uni students.

It is stupid.No one alive had anything to do with the slave trade.Even then it was mostly the rich who benefited not peasants like you or me.

I can't remember what video it was but I recently watched a Youtube video that said that some African Americans' grandparents were enslaved.
I know it's an unreliable source but maybe it has some truth to it.

Poland is currently trying to get reparations from Germany.

Not only is it really unfair to punish someone for something their ancestors did and they didn’t, but it also assumes that every white student’s ancestors owned slaves, which is not going to be the case

Against the German government, not directly the people. And that request for $1 trillion in reparations was not serious, it was simply used to stop the Germans/EU forcing Poland to accept more refugees/immigrants.

US abolished slavery in 1865, it is possible, but they would never have known their grandparents.

Any white person who gives money to any 'reparation' cause is an idiot

Except that its ALL undergraduates, not just white ones. The OP has deliberately distorted the facts to trigger people.

Is it? Well that makes even less sense.How are they going to pay reparations by charging black students.It would be helpful if OP had posted the article really.

Why did you deliberately change the facts? For the record, this only at a single university in the US (Georgetown) and (if approved by the university) will apply to ALL students not just white ones. So why are you trying to trigger people?
