This has just GOT to rub all the liberals the wrong way.
and the icing on the cake:
The group's vice-president, Marcus Carter, is black. There are also two women and an Hispanic man on its board.
i support the concept behind it, but its doomed to failure simply because a) all the liberal assholes will jump on this as being racist even though its not, and b) all the racist white power assholes will jump on this as a rallying cry for whites and support it, lending credence to A when it wasnt intended as such
I heard that they reject donations from supremacist groups, and have given away many such scholarships already.

But it would still be acceptable for a black schollarship fund to receive money from the Black Panthers.
I support this - sort of. I support it only on the basis that if you can grant a scholarship based off of the recipient being one race, then scholarships for any race should be just as accepted.
Really though, I do not support allowing race to be a determining factor in scholarships ever. For a world truly without racism, race never matters one bit in any aspect of life. But as for non-government funded scholarships - aka privately funded - they can donate their money as they please for whatever reason they please.
I have a dream that my children will one day live in a nation where they will be granted scholarships not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I think MLK would approve.
I wanted to start a white student alliance and there was some racist accusations... by the BSA and LSA. I hate not being able to qualify for a scholarship or something because I happen to be white. Thats why I never fill out the race info on applications. Even my military record said declined to respond. I think race is a stupid thing and the sooner people stop talking in terms of it the better.
