    Re: Texas Group Will Offer Scholarships To White Men Only

    I recall half joking about this when I was in school, but it was also something that was all too real and painfully obvious when scholarship shopping, there were tons of scholarships for niche groups, but as a white male I was in the most limited demographic when it came to scholarship availability.

    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.
    In the world I grew up--the real one--I went to a public school with white kids. We were in the same classes, with the same teachers, therefore given the same oppurtunity at an education. It was up to each individual kid to take that oppurtunity.

    Fortunately, I paid attention, because I didn't buy into the Libbo hype about how the government was going to nurse me through life.

    White, American males are the most politically incorrect demographic in the world.

    I have little issue with this. There are plenty of groups who only give scholarships to certain ethnic groups. So why should Caucasian males be an exception?

    The stereotype about white American males. I also didn't appreciate your accusing me of keeping racism alive. In any case, the warning has been given, so please stop.

    I was referring to Liberals, no matter their color, or gender.

    My comment about white, American males being the most politically incorrect demographic in the world was in no way a shot at white, American males; it was a shot at Liberalism as a whole.
