Black Student Union wants to see TPUSA ‘dismantled,’ dean demands apology 

The Black Student Union at Benedictine College wants to see the school’s Turning Point USA chapter “dismantled” after the group posted a controversial graphic about slavery in America that argued that the first man to win in court the right to own a slave in America was black.

The graphic, posted June 15 on the conservative group’s Instagram story, which only stays up for 24 hours, stated in part that the “first slave owner in America was not only a black man, he went to court and demanded it.”

It focused on Anthony Johnson, a black man who was one of the first legal owners of a permanent slave in the United States.

In Instagram messages to The College Fix, the Benedictine College Black Student Union said they talked to both the president of the university and the dean of students and “demanded” that the school “dismantle” the group.
