You've heard the left argue free college for all, but have you heard of free college for Black and Native American students only?
Well, now you have!
The Wayfinding Academy, an alternative college in Portland which acknowledges America's "long history and ongoing perpetuation of systemic racism and normalized white supremacy," recently announced that they'll be waiving tuition for Black and Native American students.
But I have questions...
What about the Latin, um, oh, uh, sorry, I mean Latinx students?
Or what about Asians?
Have we thought about Samoans?
What about students who identify as cats? (That's a real thing, by the way.)
Are we going to offer free school to them?
No, we're not.
We're going to continue charging them $11,000 per year.
Of course, if we could wave a wand, take away all our bills and make the Wayfinding learning experience free for all young people, we would do it.
A wand, really?
And how is this fair to White students?
Oh, I'm totally kidding. It doesn't have to be fair for White students.
But seriously, how is this fair for these other students of color who obviously have been mistreated in the past, present, and probably the future?
Answer: It's not.
This will more than likely end up creating a college where only Black and Indigenous people go to school. Why? Because it's free for them and nobody else.
According to Ibram X. Kendi and his widely popular book How to be an Antiracist, this school setting would actually help Black students excel in school, because they'd be studying in a more Afrocentric community. And similarly for the Native Americans, assuming the split would be half and half(ish).
In the long run, the Wayfinding Academy will be a purely segregated school where only Natives and Blacks attend. Apparently this is progress, according to the left. Just don't ask me how.
