I just did a quick look at Breitbart (they have a website!), checked out Milo's personal page, and looked him up in Wikipedia. Not an in-depth
investigation, I know, but it helped me form an initial opinion.
On the surface, I don't like the guy. He seems to like Rush Limbaugh way too much, appears to be an attention-grabber, and looks like he's very
insecure. He might be a good reporter, might even be a good guy, but too much extremism in either direction is a red flag for me. His grant (specified
for tertiary expenses; not a scholarship) program is already behind schedule. I'm suspicious now that it may indeed be a publicity stunt, although I
still hope he proves me wrong.
He seems to be a bit confused over his sexuality. According to Wikipedia, he admits to being gay, but has said in the past that such is aberrant
behavior and should be kept in the closet. I disagree with him strongly on that; no one should be in a closet, but neither should they be dancing on
the roof. Just live your life the way you choose and be proud of who you are... different from being proud of what you are.
So, to sum up... it's a direct grant, not a scholarship (get on board CNN!). The program is one year past initial date and still not paid out a dime,
and has allegations of abuse from within. Milo himself has a questionable history of association, but that may or may not be indicative of his
personal stance. I remain torn on whether or not this program is even legitimate.
As to the racist aspect, my stance has not changed. None of this makes him a "white supremacist."
