    Sure. But as a group, they are not. As I said, perhaps race-based scholarships for underprivileged minority groups are not the best way to serve society, but at least those groups ARE underprivileged. And at least the people providing the scholarships mean well.

    I didn't say they should be thrown in prison for doing it. I said they're Grade-A douchenozzles. Which they are.

    Asians and Latinos do not hold alot of social or economic power in America so it makes little difference. Whether or not minorities discriminate against each other more than whites is another discussion entirely and has no relevance to the topic at hand. "But they do it more than us!" is not a good rebuke.

    ..and they do it to each other. I get the same **** from scumbag Pat Buchanan conservative whites and ghetto trash black liberals. In the fact that I took their job and Im an illegal alien communist.

    Ultra Orthadox jews wont deal with Hispanics at all. In their social system is 1. White Male, 2. White Female, 3. Black Male, 4. Black Female. Arabs, Hispanics and Asians are considered 2nd class or non-persons in their view. I threw one out of my store about a week ago because in his words doesn't talk with dirty spics.

    There are already a ton of scholarships and grants that are need based which I think is the most important.
    Bull****, people wanna create their own race based scholarships, fine but to say that they're needed is BS. Instead of scholarships, its beyond time to discuss why college tuition is so high and what to do about it. I went to Syracuse without any help from anyone else other than my parents.

    So you think there aren't any white ethnic groups that aren't underprivileged?

    I disagree. There are underprivileged white people who need assistance as well. What would you say about my ethnic-based scholarship, then?

    There are some individual underprivileged whites. But whites, as a group, are not.

    The only people that offer a scholarship exclusively to white people are one of two things: 1) white supremacists, or 2) people trying to make the incredibly douchey political statement that minorities have it easy in this country, and whites have it rough. In either case, they're douchenozzles. Whereas that's not the case with minority scholarships. You also have 3) people who mean well and want to help an underprivileged group of people.

    We tend to bitch about providing scholarships and admission based on anything but merit. Got it? If a private entity wants to target scholarships in any way... fine. Operative word is "private". If a school is private they can do what they want. If they get government funds, then the law of the land should apply. No discrimination based on gender or race.

    I would also issue whites as a group do not 'need' an ethnic scholarship. They are just as eligible for academic merit scholarships. Perhaps they perceive some sortof pervasive diskkrimination against them.

    I guess they have the right to do whatever they want though. Strange.

    Are you implying that Blacks can't get merit scholarships and thus need racial based scholarships???

    Do not Generalze a group. Everything should be taken on individual bases. Being White I came from a poor family and had none of that stuff that you mention.
