[color:blue]BRISTOL, Rhode Island (AP) -- A student group at Roger Williams University is offering a new scholarship for which only white students are eligible, a move they say is designed to protest affirmative action.<br><br>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."</font color=blue><br><br>http://www.cnn.com/2004/EDUCATION/02/15/whites.only.ap/index.html<br><br>HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA<br><br>Brilliant!<br><br>[color:blue]All your sock puppets are belong to us</font color=blue>
Basically it's a statement against affirmative action.In my opinion, affirmative action just masks one of two (or both) problems:<br>- there is a societal roadblock against applicants of non-white races from being properly qualified. Are non-whites not getting the same educational opportunities beforehand? If not, fix it.<br>- the judging is racist. Investigate and fire any racist judged.<br><br>Obviously, my first point is very difficult. But it's a problem worth fixing. The second is a lot easier to fix.<br><br>Fix both of those, and there'll be no need for affirmative action.<br><br>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Mattera, who is of Puerto Rican descent, is himself a recipient of a $5,000 scholarship open only to a minority group<p><hr></blockquote><p>hmmm...mattera runs the college republicans who are offering the white's only scholarship to parody scholarships just like the one he is using to attend college. is he just trying to look silly? i think so. <br><br>i also think they've stolen this idea from the TV show, "Boston Public" where something very similar happened a while back.<br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>When the young republican club holds a bake sale to show their view on affirmative action, the school sits poised on the verge of a race riot.<p><hr></blockquote><p><a href="http://fox43.trb.com/entertainment/foxnetwork/stv-boston-pkgepisodes.special#chapter78">episode guide</a> -- same concept, different props. <br><br>quite the dividing issue and will likely play a more prominent role this election cycle.<br><br>
Mattera<br>Makes the most sense.<br><br>No matter what my ethnicity is, I'm making a statement that scholarships should be given out based on merit and need," Mattera told the Providence Journal<br><br>I would like to see Poor White Kids to be offered the same eligibility for scholarships. Thats if colleges are serious about diversity and not racial profiling.<br><br>
i wonder if you can find any public institutions that give scholarship money out based upon race or ethnicity carp...the only scholarships that i know of that offer these types of funds are private groups, so you should attack them and boycott them. for example, i know of a few education scholarships available to minority students to try and get more minority teachers out in our schools. one of the scholarships is funded by a senior faculty member, but he does this independent of the university. so, i am not sure how affirmative action comes into play in this story upon second thought. perhaps i am wrong and some universities do offer the minority-only scholarships, but as i view the scholarships available in my program, they are all from private organizations with zero being from the university. and, pell grants and student loans from the federal gov't do base their allocations on need.<br><br>
