Scholarship for being white

Finally, a step in the right direction, in my opinion. With so many scholarships focusing on the minorities, the majorities often get left behind. In fact, I’ll bet that when you combine all the minorities together, they’ll come out in the majority. A group at Boston University was tired of this and decided to make a statement and offer a scholarship to people just for being white:

Looking to draw attention to what they call the “worst form of bigotry confronting America today,” Boston University’s College Republicans are circulating an application for a “Caucasian Achievement and Recognition Scholarship” that requires applicants be at least 25 percent Caucasian.

“Did we do this to give a scholarship to white kids? Of course not,” the scholarship reads. “Did we do it to trigger a discussion on what we believe to be the morally wrong practice of basing decisions in our schools and our jobs on racial preferences rather than merit? Absolutely.”

    awesome move!
    very courageous.

    i remember having some sort of discussion in this vein with my american history teacher.

    and just to add to this, according to statistics, the scholastic level has gone down with a raised level of admittancce based on race rather than merit. which makes sense, of course. if all you want is a racial mixture, then you’re not necessarily accepting students of a higher intelligence.

    kudos to this college for taking a stance.
