So this The City College of New York is not going to be discriminating against any other race with exclusively designing the grant to be awarded to women of color.


The City College of New York recently launched a $1.2 million program designed exclusively for “women of color” seeking to become “activist scholars.”
www.campusreform.org...

See the non-tax dollars are going to go to the cis-sexual-trans and non binary folks. So who are we to suppose the grant is going to omit by design?


Flores went on to confirm that the program is funded completely through the Novo Foundation’s grant and not public tax dollars, clarifying that “the category ‘women’ is inclusive of cis-sexual, transgender, and nonbinary forms of gendered identities.”


And as usual, when asked to clarify how this is "fair", there is no answer given. Seems this is more of the same self segregating people into boxes that colleges seem to be hell bent to do these days.


While she insisted that the program “does not discriminate on gender or race,” she declined to clarify how the program, which is exclusively for “women of color,” does not discriminate against men or white people.

I'm not sure what to call it other than racism.

Try leasing/renting a property with the same criteria as this grant. Property would be lost in law suit.

No its not. White is a mix of all colors of the visible spectrum.

Not that skin color matters.

You don't understand.
This is how whites keep the privilege of paying student loans.

NAACP was one civil rights organization of yesteryear.

The lack of civil rights for minorities (broad spectrum, including the poor), was the same then as now.

Now its even worse, ask that nurse if her civil rights were violated. Or other nations bombed to dust if they have any 'civil rights".

so you're triggered by a private organization giving grants to a specific group...?
there are grants for Asian Americans, native Americans, European ancestry, grants for groups who want to be vets, grants for pacific Islanders, Caribbean Islanders, grants for ballet dancing, or people who want to be nurses..

this is just another specific grant by a private donor to a group they are associated with...

wtf is the point? you or I wouldn't qualify for grants for pacific Islanders, and no its not because of the struggle of the white man...

I'll start a study on White Discrimination and call on White Males to come and learn how to protest efficiently against the rabid torrent of global hate towards White males. I'll call it the White Pride course.

And I'll fund it with some philanthropic group focused on the plight of white males in modern society.

Don't get triggered now, what's good for the goose, and all..

*cue the ignorance*

With enough money and enough time. . . . These gals could actually make the ultimate sandwich!

Add some funding so they bring a beer with it.

Normally these types of grants or scholarships are because there is a dire need or lack of diversity. I have a hard time believing CUNY is having issues finding women of color who want to be social justice scholars/warriors. If anything there is a huge over supply.

Mis quoting members content is as frowned upon an promoting racist views... Anyway, ever heard of a prism? Its this scientifcum piece of glass that breaks visible light into its individual colors.

Yes, light is a combination of all "colors" of the visible and other spectrum. Not that this matters to those with racist views. Their view of things is only skin deep.

Is whte a "color"?

Funny all we ever hear about is white privilege when the real privilege in the US belongs to those who aren't white.

Black is the absence of light and therefore no color. So the phrase "of color" is wrong.

There are scholarships for all kinds of things and for all kinds of people.

Maybe some individual that qualifies will get an education they would not otherwise have received.

Here, this website offers a look at what's available in 2017. Sure there are "specialty" scholarships, but that doesn't mean an enterprising person couldn't qualify for something good on this list if they can jump through all the hoops.

White Prde, huh? White Power? Sich Heil...

The White Establishment hides in plain sight. The White House pretends they aren't in power, controlling the largest institutions, waging the most destructive wars, killing the most brown people...

Neither black or white are listed as colors by Physics...

Why...

Rascists call black people 'colored' because to them, other than white is considered 'blemished.'

The whole thing is laughable, I hope the ACLU is going to file suit (if needed) once this grant is given.
