“The students associated with the Basic Needs Campaign also agreed to leave the building and end their hunger strike.”
This explains so much about where these students are politically. They want a benevolent Big Brother to take care of them.

NANNY STATE? Students demand ‘basic needs.’ College caves.
The president of the University of Kentucky has capitulated to a list of demands made by a group of students that occupied the main building of the campus, voicing complaints about the university’s alleged unfair treatment of black and low-income students.
Among other demands, the president has agreed to create a permanent seat for black students on search committees for university deans and high-level administrators, WKYT-TV reported. Protesters from both the university’s Black Student Advisory Council and Basic Needs Campaign descended on the building April 1, only agreeing to leave after meeting with University of Kentucky President Eli Capilouto.
The Basic Needs Campaign also agreed to end a six-day long hunger strike meant to force the administration to recognize their demand for a campus center for students who cannot afford housing or food.
After his meeting with the protesters, Capilouto sent a campus-wide email explaining that he has an “obligation” to “meet [these students] where they are,” and to do everything in his power to “help them to feel that this University is their University.”
“We expressed concerns to the Black Student Advisory Council about safety in the Main Building going forward. Based on that, and the commitments we have made below, they left the building this evening,” Capilouto informed the student body on April 3. “The students associated with the Basic Needs Campaign also agreed to leave the building and end their hunger strike.”
