Here are the demandsA group, known as Being Black at Michigan University have taken a new approach to playing the race card. The group has taken to demanding the school provide them free tuition, a more black populated campus, special separate cheaper housing for blacks, and push for an anti-white historical curriculum. They also mentioned that if the school fails to meet their demands in just seven days, they will resort to physical violence.
1. We demand that the university give us an equal opportunity to implement change, the change that complete restoration of the BSU purchasing power through an increased budget would obtain.
2. We demand available housing on central campus for those of lower socio-economic status at a rate that students can afford, to be a part of university life, and not just on the periphery.
3. We demand an opportunity to congregate and share our experiences in a new Trotter [Multicultural Center] located on central campus.
4. We demand an opportunity to be educated and to educate about America's historical treatment and marginalization of colored groups through race and ethnicity requirements throughout all schools and colleges within the university.
5. We demand the equal opportunity to succeed with emergency scholarships for black students in need of financial support, without the mental anxiety of not being able to focus on and afford the university's academic life.
6. We demand increased exposure of all documents within the Bentley (Historical) Library. There should be transparency about the university and its past dealings with race relations.
7. We demand an increase in black representation on this campus equal to 10 percent.http://www.mrconservative.com/2014/0...-free-tuition/"Without action, alternatively, we will be forced to engage as an entire community in ways to implement the changes we request. We will allow the university seven days to end negotiations and come to conclusions on our seven demands. If negotiations are not complete we will be forced to do more, beginning to increase valiantly our activism for social progress and take physical actions on the University of Michigan's campus."
