Western Kentucky University students propose reparations

These students at Western Kentucky University are misinformed. 
  1.  Slavery has been a condition of the human race since recorded history. Everyone now living probably has slavery in her background if you go back far enough. 
  2.  There is more slavery today than during the 18th c. cross Atlantic slave trade. 
  3.  Freed American blacks also owned slaves as recorded in the 1830 U.S. census; Louis Gates reports 3,776 free Negroes owned 12,907 slaves, out of a total of 2,009,043 slaves owned in the entire United States. In some states a higher percentage of free blacks owned slaves than the white population. 
  4.  More African immigrants have arrived voluntarily as free persons since 1990 than the number who once came as slaves. These immigrants have far higher employment and education levels than native-born blacks. 
  5.  For over a decade the rate of college enrollment for black high school graduates has been higher than whites. 
How will the WKU victim collectors for the Democrat party sort all that out? Special quotas? Political party? Skin color? Wealth? That blacks are succeeding despite certain elected officials and political shenanigans is very upsetting to the left.  Need to try something new.

 "They acknowledged the move was largely symbolic."

Remember the huge dust-up when Ben Carson referred to black slaves as immigrants?  Well, it sort of disappeared when someone found out President Obama had made the same reference over 10 times in his speeches.
