    Texas Group Will Offer Scholarships To White Men Only

    Quote Originally Posted by http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/02/26/texas-group-to-offer-coll_n_828684.html?ref=fb&src=sp#sb=545756,b=faceb ook
    The group, called the Former Majority Association for Equality, was formed by Texas State University student Colby Bohannan and others and hopes to provide four $500 scholarships to white men by July (donations are being accepted via the group's website).

    The group's mission statement says that it wants to "provide monetary aid to those that have found the scholarship application process difficult because they do not fit into certain categories or any ethnic group."
    I wish this group existed while I was in college, although I didn't grow up in Texas.

    Help should be given out based on individual need, not based on whether one belongs to an ethnic group.

    I know a South African white guy who fled his country because of violence against whites. Now he is struggling in Canada to make a life for himself, but he can't get scholarships because he is WHITE. It's a joke. He went to fill out university applications, and they ask: "Are you a visible minority?" He had to say no. That is basically like saying if your skin is WHITE, you cannot get financial help or reduced tuition.

    The system needs to be MERIT BASED. If you can't afford school, then you have merit for scholarships. I am tired of the reverse racism.

    Have your friend say he's a pregnant Hispanic female with a foster child on long-term disability who's blind in one eye. He's a shoo-in.

    I think scholarships should be based on need combined with merit.

    Actually, I like what that guy's doing...

    Because they're white. Yes? People like yourself probably do more to keep racial tension alive, more than the KKK, the Nazis and the Skinheads, combined.

    If they're using private money, I could care less.

    Racism is still racism and thus should be called racism instead of reverse racism.Calling it reverse racism somehow implies that it is not actually racism.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Along with everybody else who created race based scholarships. Race should have absolutely nothing to do with getting a scholarship.

    I wonder how many conservatives complain about 'Italian-American scholarships'. It always seems to be bitching about black people having scholarships for black people.

    This guy was interviewed on CNN, I think. He certainly didn't seem like an extremist. When he went to college, he went through pages and pages of scholarships available and noticed that nearly all of them were based on ethnic, rather than economic considerations. So now he has started a private scholarship, with donations from private funds, that help economically challenged white males whose high grades and other social achievements would have made them eligible if they had simply been another ethnicity.

    Do I like it? Not particularly. However, I don't believe that any scholarship should be based on ethnicity. They should all be based upon economic hardship, understanding that most but not all of those eligible will indeed be from minority applicants. That way all poor kids get a chance for financial help to go to college.
