Egged On by Attempts to Placate Them, Slave Descendants Try to Shake Down Georgetown for $1 Billion

What happens when you give a bully your lunch money? He demands your allowance too. By the same principle, Georgetown University recently announced it would attempt to placate racist crybullies by giving admissions priority to supposed descendants of slaves, at the expense of those who are better qualified but not so fortunate when it comes to politically correct ancestry. The response:

The descendants of slaves sold by Georgetown University are calling on the school to create a billion-dollar “Reconciliation Fund,” one week after the school apologized for its role in the slave trade and promised several (much cheaper) efforts to make up for it.

In 1838, Georgetown sold off 272 slaves in order to pay its debts, selling them for $115,000 (over $3 million in today’s money). In recent years, the school has faced demands from activists who want it to atone for its actions almost 180 years ago.

Just as a fire grows hotter the more coal you shovel on it, these shakedown demands will grow shriller and more outrageous as they continue not to be laughed off.

    hmmm – did they ask for reparations from the Africans who SOLD THEM INTO SLAVERY IN THE FIRST PLACE ?
    what a racket.

    Georgetown is getting what it deserves for its increadably ignorant delusional self hating guilt. Let it be a lesson to other self hating liberal fools.

  3. MAS says:

    Gosh, who could’a seen that one coming? >snerk<

    Enjoy that bed of thorns you've made for yourselves progressive fools…you deserve it.

  4. BillyBob Bob says:

    Where do I sign the petition to Georgetown?

  5. DM says:

    I am very excited about this. I hope it means that I will be able to attend Georgetown, since I am the descendant of several bond servants/indentured slaves (the genteel name for white slaves). They were also sold by their own kind into slavery so think we as their descendants deserve the same consideration as any black.

  6. James McEnanly says:

    How are they going to determine who is or is not a descendant of the Georgetown slaves? Can just anyone claim that they at least one ancestor out of 128 who was one of these slaves claim the reward? If so, one billion dollars isn’t going to go very far, and a degree from Georgetown will barely be worth the vellum that it is printed on.

    Al Waleed bin Talal can pay for it. The Arabs took way more slaves (and still do) than the Europeans ever did.

  8. Dr. John Charles says:

    Georgetown University was once a great Catholic institution. Seeped in Christian (Catholic) values and sound educational principles. Then they took government money and became dependent on that cash to the point where it became vulnerable to “blackmail”. The government threatened to withhold the funds the university had become so dependent upon for its basic survival. Now Georgetown had to compromise their Christian values, hire liberal professors and administrators and include a Marxist curriculum. Proof of this scam was when Obama agreed to speak at Georgetown, but the university had to cover all its religious symbols — and it did! This is the story of how just about all of the great American institutions has been infiltrated, hollowed out and transformed into Democrat d-facto government agencies.

    I bet not one Irish slave descendant will gain admission. Yes there were Irish slaves.

  10. Jester says:

    So that’s been their endgame all along? Big bucks? Sure, why not… their Messiah’s been raping the treasury for 8 years now. What the hell.

  11. Whoare"they"? says:

    Ok, if you were a slave of an U.S. Citizen and can provide papers to prove it. At the end of the Civil War slaves were offered 40 acres and a mule. They got their reparations.

  12. Jack says:

    F-k Catholic Universities. Most are run by Marxists who have turned their backs on the Catholic Church

  13. Mr. Freemarket says:

    If the blacks self-identify as white and the descendants of slave owners, everything will be fine. They, too, can have as much white privilege as the rest of us enjoy.

  14. Mr. Freemarket says:

    Slow learners, the lot of them.

  15. Mr. Freemarket says:

    The difference, of course, is that the descendants of the Irish do not consider themselves slaves.

    As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he…..

  16. Mr. Freemarket says:

    Kinda helps understand the protestant reformation.
