Georgetown University students will vote Thursday on a reparations referendum that would establish a mandatory fee for undergraduate students to pay to descendants of slaves.
If enacted, GU272 would require undergraduate students to fork up $27.20 per semester, reported WRC-TV in Washington, D.C. Funds collected from the fee would go toward descendants of 272 slaves that Georgetown sold in 1838. The referendum comes as a number of 2020 Democrat presidential candidates now openly support reparations, as the Wall Street Journal highlighted Thursday.
“The proceeds of the GU272 Reconciliation Contributions will be allocated for charitable purposes directly benefiting the descendants of the GU272 and other persons once enslaved by the Maryland Jesuits—with special consideration given to causes and proposals directly benefiting those descendants still residing in proud and underprivileged communities, such as in Maringouin,” the referendum says.
