    No no,I think you're missing the point!

    First its a gift. Second, there's LOTS of scholarships.

    If some asthmatic with coke bottle glasses gets rich and wants to kick down to some asthmatic kid with coke bottle glasses, what's the problem? Its his money, and he wants it to go where he thinks it'll do the most good.

    Id bet that there may be no "whites only" scholarships but there's probably Irish ones, etc.

    Slow down a bit there, skippy. You are, or are not, saying that private racial discrimination, by offering discounts based on race, are OK? After all if it is MY bar (and there are lots of other bars), it is MY "gift" if I charge you less or comp you a drink. I am simply taking that concept (private gift) to the SAME level as this "scholarship offer" and extending the offer only to white folks that I happen to like. ;-)

    The Whites Only Scholarship was founded in 2004 by Jason Mattera, a Roger Williams University student and member of the school Republican Party.

    "A student group at Roger Williams University is offering a new scholarship for which only white students are eligible, in a move they say is designed to protest affirmative action. The application for the $250 award requires an essay on "why you are proud of your white heritage" and a recent picture to "confirm whiteness." "Evidence of bleaching will disqualify applicants," says the application, issued by the university's College Republicans."

    scholarship <> discount

    Your hypothetical bar is a "public accomodation", which is regulated by law and prohibited from charging different prices based on race

    And just what do YOU base that on? If I own a bar, it is my OPTION to comp a drink or reduce the price (by contributing my own funds to the register) to anyone I feel like. If my "feelings" of generousity are racially based, as is the scholarship in question, then what is the difference in your great legal mind?

    I never charged a different price, as that is illegal, I provided a gift to my white customer by placing my own funds in the register (making the drink cost unchanged) and paying all taxes due on the entire drink purchase price, as the law requires. I am simply making a gift offer based on race, just as this scholarship offer does. ;-)
