    Student Group Offers Whites-Only Award
    University Student Group Offers Scholarship to Whites Only, Seeking to Protest Affirmative Action

    BRISTOL, R.I. Feb. 15 — 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.
    The application for the $50 award requires an essay on "why you are proud of your white heritage" and a recent picture to "confirm whiteness."

    Most excellent and good for them; it's about time!!!!!

    Now, if they'll just start up a Nat'l Association for the Advancement of White People they will really be pushing the politically incorrect envelope.:clap1:

    Negative sir, this is finally some decent affirmative action that is long over-due.

    I missed this thread and posted the same article (I deleted mine so as to not get repetitious).

    I agree AW, Its about damn time this has happened. Bully... it has nothing to do with racism. Thats a ridiculous assertion.

    This is nothing more than the flip side of the College Fund strictly for blacks. Why didn't I hear you crying racism in that instance?

    I don't think that the students involved in this believe that race determines anything or that whites are superior (i.e., the definition of racist) so this can't be racist. Is it racially motivated? Yes. Is it wrong? NO.

    If this is so racial, then you can blame the one's who started up, BLACK UNITED FUND, BLACK SCHOLORSHIPS...etc... You want to be equal, then there shouldn't be no funds strictly to one race, it should be for all!!!!! Why should I give to just Black united fund??? is this to help whites or any other than blacks? no!!!

    Agree with Moi, and I agree nothing wrong with it! it's about time someone did something like this.

    Now I do disagree with preferential treatment based upon race. Its a little different here because unlike our two resident haters, these guys aren't claiming anything silly like white supremacy but just an equal playing field.
