Why do you guys think scholarships for African-Americans were started in the first place?
Because they had an equal chance as whites (Euro-Americans)? If you think they did then you are delusional.
It's whites that segregated 'blacks' until not that long ago, whites wouldn't give a job
or even the time of day to non-whites.
It's whites that caused the hate to begin with by dragging people from their home countries to take them thousands of miles to work for nothing on white plantations.
Do you not know your own history? They helped, through their stolen labour, to make this country what it is. The wealth you now enjoy is partly because of their stolen labour.
Whites don't need anything special. No boss turns down a job app cause you're white. The country is run by whites, the wealth is in the hands of the whites, the power is in the hands of the whites. Everyday is 'white' day.
If it wasn't for the racist history of your country you wouldn't need 'black' scholarships, but unfortunately you can't ignore your history and pretend all is now equal, it's not.
The whole point of helping minorities is to integrate more of them into society, whites need no help there. You can't tell me you can't get a scholarship cause your white, that's total BS. But even if you can't it's the big picture of integrating minorities into society, instead of having them all on welfare. If there were no special scholarships then it would hurt the country more in the long run.
It would be wonderful if there really was no bias, no racism, no inequality, but history shows this not to be the case. So you 'whitey' you reap what you have sown.
A white only anything is a discusting concept imo I thought we'd done away with. But I see everyday that America is still a rampantly racist country. Yes there are racist blacks but they have a legitimate reason imo. Think about it, how would you feel towards 'blacks' if your ancestors were slaves to them? I can see the silhouettes hanging from the trees now....

What a travesty, considering people push diversity as being essential to the learning envoirnment. I guess those schools didn't get the memo. They are doing an injustice to all those black kids who don't get to learn from white kids... lmao
