Georgetown University is considering charging their students extra fees to pay for slavery reparations according to reports.
George Town University is seeking to force students to pay slavery reparations.
The College Fix reported that Georgetown University students will soon vote on whether they want to tax themselves to benefit the descendants of slaves sold by the university in the 1830s.
Its student government recently authorized a campuswide student referendum on whether to establish a fund for the families of the 272 men, women and children sold by Georgetown in 1838.
If approved, the semesterly fee would begin to be collected in the fall of 2020 and start at $27.20 per student “in honor of the 272 people sold by Georgetown,” states the student government resolution approving the referendum, a copy of which was obtained Wednesday by The College Fix.
Congresswoman Jayapal is pushing for reparations for illegal migrants and their families.
