    What about biracial students? Would their tuition be cut in half?

    The sponsors of this resolution acknowledge it will go nowhere. Sounds like future congresscritters to me!

    “People can debate the prudence of actually eliminating tuition for all Black students, and it’s extremely unlikely regardless, but the point is to have a real conversation about how we eliminate racial disparities in higher education,” he said. “We need to consider making reparations in the form of more equitable college admissions policies, financial assistance and campus support and resources, and we hope this provocative statement will launch an important dialogue about to achieve that.”
    You mean like bonus points on admission consideration and free or near free rides that exist already if you are a non-Asian minority?

    Bodhi (internally groaning): Yeah? What kind of artist?
    Lily: A balloon animal artist!

    What about the black students already getting free tuition from scholarships (academic or athletic) -- do they not get anything? That doesn't seem fair.

    Curious as to how many students read the news and quickly shouted "I identify as a black student!"

    LOL! Even they were better than "one drop."

    So, who is going to pay for it? The SGA?
