Uhm, you do realize that this entire thread you have been spouting off white man hatred and racism, right? Do I need to go back and quote your hate? Seriously? You have spent a majority of your time in this thread race baiting. And I hope we don't share common ancestry.. I have this thing about racist people. We don't get a long.


Exactly what did I say that was racist? Please quote every racist thing that I said. It's apparent that you don't even know what it means to be racist.

Did I make some generalizations based off of fact and history, of course! Were any of my comments, racist? Absolutely not!

RACISM - a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.

Go ahead and quote my racist comments based on the actual definition of racism. Nothing that I said will fall under the category of racist or anything else. You feel personally attacked because I contradicted your point of view. Sorry fella that doesn't qualify as racist.

This white only stuff is getting real old real fast. I wonder where the money from such scholarships come from. Didn't bother reading the article.

If a bunch of people want to get together and try to help low achieving white males get an extra helping hand it's their right to do so. However, this type of mindset is what ruined our country and economy in the first place.


I believe I've found a truly ignorant person here on ATS.
Sad to say.


Well that's one perfectly ambiguous statement. What exactly did you find ignorant?

The fact that there are plently of scholarships available to white men and everyone else? The fact that I believe white male only scholarships are for the underachieving white males who could not qualify for the regular scholarships?

In my opinion, I don't see some white male who is valedictorian in HS going to MIT on a full academic scholarship going out of his way to apply for a measly $500, do you? From the other white guys on this thread, they seem to think this scholarship is some kind of savior scholarship for average white American joes. ha ha

Apparently there are millions of minorities taking advantage of all this free unfair reverse racism minority money floating around. I would like to actually see someone on here present some facts about the demographics of all grant and scholarship recepients in the US by race and gender. It would be pretty interesting if any of you could PROVE this reverse racism in terms of US dollars. Until i see this so called PROOF of reverse racism I won't post on this thread again. It's simply propaganda that I don't have time for.

Yea, so what you are bascially saying is that you just learned what racism means and you realized that nothing that I said qualified as racist. Nice cop out!

HAHA! You make this far too easy! You must love being wrong.

wordnetweb.princeton.edu...


S: (n) racism, racialism, racial discrimination (discriminatory or abusive behavior towards members of another race)


wordnetweb.princeton.edu...


# S: (adj) prejudiced, discriminatory (being biased or having a belief or attitude formed beforehand) "a prejudiced judge"


So, after reading those definitions, let me find the comments where you made discriminatory statements about white people. Where you were biased, or "attitude formed beforehand" (meaning, you have no idea it's true, you are judging based on skin color) Here is where you do just that:

So to recap, you make assumptions and insults on people you have no idea about, based on the fact they are WHITE. Refer back to my two quoted definitions. My god man, you really are too blind to look in the mirror.

Don't worry about it, I got it under control
I realize trying to reason with this guy is like trying to reason with a brick wall, or even worse, a 3 year old child.

For whatever reason I wasted the time (say wasted because he is either going to ignore it or try to explain it away) and collected the most blaring instances of his discriminatory posting. There was even more than I thought!

Why not?

They have scholarships for everything and everyone.. Time to get your scoop


I'm sure the whtie guys are gonna love this!


Even though people make it sound like getting a scholarship is easy and everyone can get one... i never understood that part. You still have to compete against your peers.

I don't disagree that there are many scholarships for minorities, I find it very hard to believe that this guy had no aid. He is an Iraq war vet; last I heard, vets get money for school. There are also scholarships for students with good grades; if he did not have access to those, it's because he didn't work hard enough.

On the surface this doesn't seem like a terrible idea, but I am very suspicious about where the group's donated funds will come from.

In 2004, for full-year students with one institutional affiliation who are dependents, the average grant made to whites was $3,375, while the average grant to blacks was $5,321, nearly 58 percent more. Total financial aid for whites was $7,259, compared with the 42 percent higher figure of $10,325 for blacks.

You might logically say that whites have higher incomes than blacks, so if aid is need-based, more should go to blacks. I agree. However, if one confines the analysis to only low income students (in the bottom one-fourth of the income distribution), we see the average black student still receives almost $2,000 (21-22 percent) more aid than the average white. Controlling for income, blacks are significantly favored relative to whites --perhaps reverse racism, if you will.


The CCAP site is down for a few days for a complete update. The above quote is from this article. You need anything else while I am at it?

I do know what racism is. And you are a racist. Plain and simple. And no, I will not dignify posting your hate speech on this board. FFS?

Wow, would you like some racism or sexism sprinkled on-top of your ignorance? If your white+male+ born into an "economically disadvantaged home" your completely and totally %^$# out of luck. Not only do you have to deal with the economic stress but ignorant bigots like you who think all white males everywhere are loaded and have an easy life.

My friend you really do need to educate yourself because you have a lot to learn.

I pointed out in my very first post in this thread that I belived only inferior white males support this scholarship and that the superior white males would likely think of people who need this scholarship as losers.

I am sorry if you find that personally offensive but pointing out superiority and inferiority of members of a single group can hardly be called racist.

CASE CLOSED. Have a nice day.

ROFLMAO! I find nothing said by you personally offensive. I find what you said easily definable as being discriminatory and racist, which you wanted proof of. When provided with such proof you completely ignore it. I believe I predicted this, perhaps I'm a precog! More likely you are just very predictable with your particular style of truth avoidance.

How about we take your statement:



There was a reason your genetic stock didn't make it very far, actually it's quite obvious.


Now, lets say a white man posts that same comment about a black man. Would you call it racist? I would. Just like I call it racist when you post it, regardless of your race.

Then you say only inferior white males would support this scholarship. Do you agree only inferior black males accept a scholarship from the United Negro College Fund? I wonder.

However, this type of mindset is what is currently ruining our country and economy. Hmm, sounds pretty darn ignorant huh? Sounds about as bad as what you said. I just switched out a few key words, if you didn't catch that.

CASE CLOSED indeed! Don't let anyone tell you there is something wrong with you forfeiting. Personal choice, I understand.

lmaolmaolmaolmao, your still a racist and sexist bigot. Inferior and superior? Don't insult my intelligence. What your using is shaming language to try and make it "harder" to refute your bigotry, because anyone that might object to such a blatant display of hatred runs the risk of being labeled "inferior".

But do you know what? Maybe I am an "inferior white male"? Maybe I know what it's like to not have a Christmas or worse yet a "happy meal Christmas". Maybe I know what it is like to be hungry, I am not talking supper is an hour late hungry. I mean real hunger. The kind that gnaws at you, the kind where a couple crackers and a cup of tea would be a good respite. Maybe I know what it is like to be cold. To have it cling to you because your scared if you turn the heat up you might not be able to afford more for awhile.

Maybe I know what it is like trying to work full time, go to school full time and dealing with a million other BS things I shouldn't have to deal with all the while forced to listen to a dim-witted racist bigot like you day in and day out that has some kind of a grudge because she isn't teaching at Harvard or Yale, so she spends more time ranting and raving about the "patriarchy" and "evil white men" then actually teaching(that really made me really sad having to drop a course that I had a 100% grade in, but a human being can only take so much).

All I can say is what goes around comes around and sooner or later all your ignorance and bigotry is going to be shoved right back at you. And I am just going to laugh with a half hearted grin.

Can we have a reality check here?

Number 1. If college wasnt so doggone expensive we wouldnt need scholarships. By it becoming increasingly expensive it is disenfranchising low income people. These people generally are minorities. In itself, this is a form of racism. Ensuring that well to do "whites" dominate higher education.

Number 2. The US is still about 68 % "white" or persons from European descent. So called Afro-americans are only 12% !!! And hispanics 14% of the population. Thats a grand total of 26% !! Thats nothing. And if you want to throw in asians you got your 30 % (Dang people what did you guys do to the Native Americans... :puz
. So think about it, how many of these minorities get to go to college or universities, once you take in consideration their income, their grades, the high school they attended (yes that has a major influence too!), etc.

So I think people are looking at this the wrong way.
Sure, you want people to be treated equally in your country.
But the U.S. has ALWAYS favored and enriched the white MAJORITY.
Scholarships are there to help MINORITIES, whether its due to ethnicity, a special talent, or income.
In other words, there are many scholarships that "white" persons can apply for:
Whats your talent? Are you good in sports? Do you play a rare musical instrument? Are you highly intelligent?
Do you come from an area in the US that is very poor, etc.

So, as a white person, how desperate are you to have to get a College scholarship? You want to stop more minorities from getting their chance simply because you have majority right? Your competition is not against other minorities, its against other white people.

I think this thread got quite derailed but nobody is harboring any hatred for these minorities or even their scholarship programs. My whole reason for posting in this thread was because I thought it was a good political statement to be made by the people offering this scholarship. Yes there is racism and discrimination in this country. But I can't think of any situation where actual policy or laws are setup in this way. There isn't any school that has a "whites only" sign outside of it. The past is the past, and it's up to the current generation to succeed, not blame people from history for keeping them down.

I can't think of a single situation, beside being born homeless or with a mental disorder, that would keep someone from succeeding if they REALLY tried hard. I'm not blaming minorities or anything for me not going to college, I blame myself. I know if I would have worked harder I could have gone, but I didn't.

The same thing goes for young people of any race. Up until college, school is free for the most part, and low income families get help from the school or other programs for things like school supplies if they can't afford them. Aside from that, it is up to the student to show up every day, pay attention in class, do their homework, and ask for help if they don't understand something. If they fail to do those things, it is THEIR fault they don't succeed, not the fault of anybody holding them down.

I don't see how being a minority would make it any more difficult for someone to do the things I just said. Although children with English as a second language would be an exception, most schools have an ESL program, and things like Math are a universal language.

I personally don't think there NEEDS to be a white only scholarship program at all. Just like I don't see why there NEEDS to be a minority only scholarship program. I am simply supporting the OP because it's a political statement that illustrates how these kind of things are not conducive to a fair, equal treatment of people. My ultimate wish is that all scholarships are awarded based on economic need, and scholastic achievement. If that was the case, there would be no excuse for anybody regardless of race.
