New scholarship for white students only Someone should have done this a long time ago. I hate that college acceptance, scholarships and financial aid are given to people based on the color of their skin. But let whites try it and BAM, they're a bunch of racist bigots. Source The student group, College Republicans, is a minority himself, receiving a $5,000 scholarship open only to minority groups. Look at all the race based things out there, BET, Ebony, JET, minority scholarships, government grants and aid for minorities, FUBU and so on. ALL are designed specifically for or are only available to blacks or other minorities. It's something that's bothered me for a long time. What if whites had come out with a counterpart for these? WET (White Entertainment Television, heh), Ivory (counter for Ebony magazine), white only scholarships (well this one has happened now, though only minimally) and a clothing line designed by white people and meant for white people. It's silly in some instance like clothes because we pretty much wear what we want but in many other instances, publications and media stations created and designed for blacks are applauded and supported but no one will touch a white entertainment station or an Ivory magazine because we'd be labeleb as racists, no matter what the content of those white people mediums. Look, I know not all blacks are racist against whites and not all whites are racist against blacks. I know Ebony magazine and BET are not there to slap whites in the face. They're there to give content that blacks will watch, read and can identify with. What angers me is the now inequality in what is tolerated and ok for blacks or minorites to have or do and the same is criticized when whites do. It's reverse racism and it's wrong. For a time, blacks were the minority heavily discriminated against, for a time it was chinese laborers or most any other minority coming to america a long time ago. Today's discrimination is largely on the shoulders of the white race, specifically on the shoulders of the white male. I'm not saying all other minorities discriminate and are racist against whites. That's certainly not the truth. It's just a very loud minority that seem to be doing it. I don't expect this thread to change a thing either so complaning about me complaining (hypocritical anyhow) will do no good since this is only a rant in a public discussion forum anyhow. I just want to point out an article I saw about someone (a minority no less) creating a tiny scholarship for white people only and the mantra behind race and how our society is handling it these days. Another point. It 10 or 20 years when hispanics replace whites as the majority in this nation, does that mean whites will be eligible for these same scholarships now? It will be interesting to see how that pans out. Discuss and keep it above the belt. This is a discussion, not a foodfight.
