HBCU Hampton University to Give Free Housing and Tuition to Ukrainian Students

Ukraine

African students experienced racism when trying to flee Ukraine amid the ongoing crisis with Russia. 

So how does an HBUC in America respond? By offering white students from Ukraine free housing and Tuition, moguldom reports. 

The liberal officials running Hampton University recently announced it would be welcoming 50 to 100 Ukrainian and international students, offering them free tuition, room and board. 

“The collective Hampton University faculty, staff and students are heartbroken because the war-torn country of Ukraine must deal with atrocities like the bombing of maternity wards, hospitals and other civilian areas,” said Hampton University President Dr. William R. Harvey. “I think this partnership is something that can be beneficial to a great number of students and families.  My entire career has been focused on helping people to achieve and meet their goals.”

The move has been met with mixed reactions, with many agreeing that the freebies should go to Black American students.

“Well, the HBCUs are at it again. Do you think this has ANYTHING to do with all the alleged ‘federal dollars’ they have (allegedly) received?” media personality Black Authority tweeted.

“Wow. An HBCU is giving free rides to people who (1) are violently abusive towards Black people as we have seen in numerous videos and (2) are okay with ‘whites only’ transportation policies. Will Black students be safe when these people are on campus?” tweeted user SoulfulSugar, per the report. 

“Students from the Ukraine should not be allowed to attend Hampton University. I prefer to see more Black Americans at HBCUs. However, the traitors must be removed from the schools need to hit the reset button,” Toni Carter tweeted.

“HBCU’s are offering free room and board to white Ukrainian refugees. Hampton university is giving free room and board to the same Ukrainians that turned their back on African students in a crisis! Cccchhhhhhiiiiiiilllllllleeeeee these schools be performative AF,” tweeted @DonPumGato.

Hampton University recently announced it would be offering free tuition, room and board to 50 to 100 Ukrainian and international students studying in the European country due to the ongoing war and devastation.

“The collective Hampton University faculty, staff and students are heartbroken because the war-torn country of Ukraine must deal with atrocities like the bombing of maternity wards, hospitals and other civilian areas,” said Hampton University President Dr. William R. Harvey. “I think this partnership is something that can be beneficial to a great number of students and families.  My entire career has been focused on helping people to achieve and meet their goals.”

Students would also have the option to stay at Hampton and pay regular tuition and fees for the summer semester.

Jamarlin returns for a new season of the GHOGH podcast to discuss Bitcoin, bubbles, and Biden. He talks about the risk factors for Bitcoin as an investment asset including origin risk, speculative market structure, regulatory, and environment. Are broader financial markets in a massive speculative bubble?

This isn’t the first time the popular HBCU has offered displaced international students a temporary educational home. It also took in Bahamian students in 2019 after Hurricane Dorian devastated the island nation.

While some people celebrated the move, not everyone was warm to the idea. Some in Black America questioned Hampton’s motives, while others pointed out the racism many African students said they experienced when trying to flee Ukraine.

Still others said the slots should be filled by Black American students.

Here are some of the critical reactions from Twitter.

“Well, the HBCUs are at it again. Do you think this has ANYTHING to do with all the alleged ‘federal dollars’ they have (allegedly) received?” Black Authority tweeted.

There were some Twitter users who came to Hampton’s defense, however, stating the university was just showing humanity and empathy.

They are so f**king blatant with their racism it's funny.  I guess we don't have any blacks or latinos in the ghettos that could use free education benefits.  That's why I understand when other brothers in the past were stating that this country isn't for us.  We can fight in their wars, be experimented on in the name of science, be made fun of, be the last to be hired and the first to be fired, but to get any benefits that should be given to us....Nah.  Can you make this shite up?
