    Politically, they have to right? Otherwise a vast voting block may start thinking for themselves, improving their lives and moving out of poverty and lower economic classes and not need the government hand outs.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    It seems like 80% of the scholarships are pure BS anyways. I mean hell when I was applying to colleges I got 8,000 dollars for being Catholic. And unless the person who is donating the money for the scholarship says where they want it to specifically go it should be universal.

    It's not like there is anything illegal here, he is free to make this scholarship with the restrictions he wanted to put in. Don't care. I wish scholarships were 100% ability based, but they ain't. So that's that. We've gotta get enough business and communications majors somehow I suppose.

    I think that claiming that race-based scholarships and/or opportunities are unfair means that one must assume that these considerations would not otherwise play a factor. If all things were equal, and these still existed, I feel that one could rightly claim that there is an injustice here. However, given the history of the country, as well as current studies, I think that such a claim would be patently false. We literally have studies clearly demonstrating that racial bias still exists. Therefore, I really don't see the problem with this.

    Moreover, this doesn't seem like a morally neutral move to me because I think that it is reactionary, as opposed to active. In the absence of scholarships for, say, Latinos, this would never have come up as an issue. This is a case of people trying to make a political point moreso than trying to further some substantive cause in my opinion.

    That said, here's an interesting question: should there be scholarships for people who are, in some respects discriminated against but are white? There is certainly a certain mainstream to American culture, which might be associated with the culture of professionals. It is the style of dress, culture, and speech patterns of those that we might see on the news for instance. If a white person is obviously southern (I would argue that some discrimination does exist against them, though not necessarily running along the same lines as other groups), should they be afforded special considerations?

    No. Your problem has everything to do with perspective, and nothing to do with liberalism, when it comes to this issue. In your view, everything is equal, racism is dead, and nothing more needs to be done. This is the problem I have with your view and the conservatives who believe such nonsense.

    Unfortunately for you, folks will not stop saying it, because it's entirely true. I'm very sorry that the truth of the matter offends you. Perhaps you should focus your anger over the situation towards something more positive, like educating yourself on the issue rather than complaining about it.

    If the scholarship is provided for using PRIVATE funds, they can give them to anyone they want. You won't see me complain about PRIVATE organizations using PRIVATE funds giving race/ethnic based scholarships. As a French-American, we are historically an socio-economically marginalized group and I did benefit from scholarships for French-Americans... You will not hear me complain about it EXCEPT when there is hypocrisy on this matter. Private scholarships for Blacks? OK for Jews? OK for legal Hispanics, OK for whites? OK for females? OK...

    Scholarships for race is BS! But if scholarships are allowed for just Native Americans, African American, Single Moms, Hispanics...then White males should have the same. I mean there is finally an all white school because there is all black schools..Talk about segregation. Makes no sense why people want this but if its good for one its good for another.
