Descendants of slaves go to the front of the line at Georgetown U

Hey! If you are a descendent of slaves, that were bought or sold on the campus of Georgetown University, THIS IS YOUR LUCKY DAY! Massive liberal, white guilt is oozing out of every crevice of the place. And because of that, they have devised a plan to ease their regret by compiling a 104 page report to tell the world how they are gonna rectify the past’s hideous atrocities. Slave descendants go to the front of the line for admissions.

And apparently not a moment too soon, because since 1838 university officials have been losing sleep over the actions of two priests who sold slaves to pay off institutional debts.

Get the dirty, racist details at CBSWashington:

Georgetown University will give preference in admissions to the descendants of slaves owned by the Maryland Jesuits as part of its effort to atone for profiting from the sale of enslaved people.

Georgetown president John DeGioia told news outlets that the university in Washington will implement the admissions preferences. He says Georgetown will need to identify and reach out to descendants of slaves and recruit them to the university.

On Thursday morning, a university committee released a report that also called on its leaders to offer a formal apology for the university’s participation in the slave trade.

In 1838, two priests who served as president of the university orchestrated the sale of 272 people to pay off debts at the school. The slaves were sent from Maryland to plantations in Louisiana.

The university says it will give descendants of those slaves “the same consideration we give members of the Georgetown community” when they apply.

Georgetown President John DeGioia penned a letter to students and faculty Thursday, writing, “I believe the most appropriate ways for us to redress the participation of our predecessors in the institution of slavery is to address the manifestations of the legacy of slavery in our time.”
