Subby, linking to autoplaying videos is a bad idea too.
 
2013-05-15 03:13:59 PM

give me doughnuts: MindStalker: Its possible that this scholorship is an endowment that is controlled by the university, so the university is responsible for deciding recipients. Where these other scholorships are all independantly run and the university is not a deciding body, they just accept the money.

They're just following orders?
That defense didn't work very well.


??? Universities will generally accept scholarships from the KKK, they don't care as long as your tuition is paid. This scholarship is managed by Columbia, so they are suing themselves to get the stipulating rules which were set in 1920 changed by a judge.

lennavan: Fair enough, all black college kids applying for scholarships who had to sit at the back of the bus, or use the back door at a lunch counter, or who was deprived the right to vote should get a scholarship. Everyone else should be on equal footing. Deal?


No way. We could have given up the 40 acres and a mule when we had the chance, but noooooo.
 
2013-05-15 03:14:23 PM

Joe Blowme: jshine: Magorn: yeah, I mean both Whites AND Blacks were an oppressed minority who suffered from YEARS of institutionalized discrimination in this country, Remember those horrible "James Croworthington III" laws in the deep south that deprived blacks of their rights to vote and forced them to attend ridiculously underfunded schools, sit in the back of buses and use the back door at lunch counters?

...and by "deep South" do you mean Iowa or New York? -- because the scholarship in question is for Iowans going to a school in New York.

I'm not saying that there was no discrimination in the north, but bringing the South into the discussion is a complete red herring.

Iowa has a "Beat Whitey Night" at the state fair so they are at least trying to make up for some of it.



Yay, more opportunity to dust off the hate crime laws.  That's always a hoot.

endmile: The Third Man: I know of a Catholic-run university where one of their alumni wanted to give a big scholarship which would only be available to non-Catholic students.  I'm sure that was fun to explain to the university president (who was, of course, a priest).  Apparently they were able to talk the alumnus out of that stipulation.

Along the lines of this scholarship...you know, the Rhodes Scholarship was once only available to white students, as well.  Cecil Rhodes was racist even by the fairly racist standards of his time and social class.

Calling Cecil Rhodes racist is like saying Hitler kind of disliked Jewish people.


Didn't he?

Fallout Boy: lennavan: Well yeah, a white's only scholarship is bigoted.  These however, are not:

Dr. Robert E. Campbell Memorial Scholarship for an American minority student in journalism
Gruner + Jahr Magazine Scholarship for female students interested in magazine writing
Phyllis and William Michelfelder Scholarship for a female print student
Trudi Stamm Scholarship, for a woman from New York State
Westinghouse Broadcasting Co Scholarship in memory of the late LaRue Heard Johnson ('68) for minority students
Jacobo Timerman Scholarship in memory of Jacobo Timerman (for a Latin American student)
Sylvia L. Wilson ('85) Memorial Scholarship, for an African-American woman specializing in print journalism

That's just the Columbia University Journalism school.
/there were no "whites only" journalism school scholarships, that's bigoted, remember?

I've always wondered if mouth-breathers like you also think that higher tax rates for the rich is class-warfare and class discrimination. Listen, our civilization have many measures to balance the inherent inequality in our society, and since we will never live in a post-racial world, granting scholarship to minorities is one of them. White people does not have it better than minorities, accept your genetic lottery and stop whining like an ungrateful brat.


*do have it better

Joe Blowme: tlars699: Now, I've been told that any person of non-caucasoid descent is currently a minority, and that in a few decades the caucasoids will end up being the minority.

Does this mean that all the "minority" scholarships will then be given to the true minority? Or will they be rewritten?

By then they will have agreed they are racist


Wouldn't that be nice? Then they could use the trusts collectively to reduce tuition for everybody to go to school, based on merit.

give me doughnuts: Smeggy Smurf: Wendy's Chili: Do they even have black people in Iowa?

A hell of a lot more than in Idaho.


Sorry, but no. Iowa is 88.7% caucasian, and Idaho is only 84%.

Only Maine, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Vermont, and West Virginia are more white than Iowa.


You should see China.  That place is not even 1% Caucasian.  It's full of blacks.

dj_bigbird: Does Columbia have scholarships for African-American students? Hispanic?


a modern, diverse liberal would say: don't you get it dawg? that's not cool anymore. for even saying this i've already labeled you as a rich, white, racist and have made sure you and all your children will never get any scholarships/fellowships/admittance privileges. white is out. it's old, it's dead. it's tired. you're a racist for even being white and you owe non-whites for 100-200 years of economic discrimination. it's time to pay up.
 
2013-05-15 03:16:59 PM
I think I finally get it;

Racism for Whites = Pariah
Racism for Blacks = Acceptable/tolerable
Racism for Asians = Once acceptable but they assimilated too quickly so it's now almost as bad as being a racist white.
Racism for Hispanics = Acceptable if they vote Democratic, Pariah if they vote Republican.

abhorrent1: Why? Black people have their own, as well as Hispanics.  Once again, it's only wrong/racist if white people do it.


Yep.

Once got bluntly told by the black president/owner of a company that (paraphrased) "personality and technical qualifications (both excellent) aside, you would not be liked by some of our black employees, therefore sorry about that, no job for you."

Didn't "shake and cry" about it, just went out to the next job interview.

JesseL: I wonder how it would have played out if a black student applied for a "whites only" scholarship (or vice versa)? AFAIK, there's not much legal or scientific basis for defining race, so would they just let it go? Would some bureaucrat get the job of saying "I can't prove anything about your race, but I am reasonably confident that you are disqualified by your melanin levels"?


Well, I know of another group that discriminates based on midichlorian levels.

Representative of the unwashed masses: ikanreed: Wow, there are sure a lot of "victims" of "reverse-racism" in here.  At least it's totally apparent none of them are the slightest bit educated, thus validating their premise.

I was done school about 10 years ago.  But on principle I find it sad that it's perfectly ok for a minority group to have a targeted scholarship while a Caucasian group can't have the same.


It's not so much "OK", as it is not furthering an ongoing injustice.  I certainly can agree to "sad" though.  I won't contest "sad."

Its called political correctness which is really farkin up this country.

That, and the whole "IT'S ILLEGAL" thing, which I'm sure had nothing at all to do with the decision to stop awarding it.

Double-fail.

It's legal to award minority students grants based on race, but illegal to distribute a grant specifically for whites based on their race?

I-I.... don't understand. Can you explain it to me?


Because it's to get underrepresented groups into colleges, which is why Asians don't get them either.

If whites were underrepresented then they should have scholarships. That's the logic to it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indentured_servant


From your link:  Not all were sent willingly. Several instances of  kidnapping for transportation to the Americas are recorded and this falls more clearly into the bracket of "white slave". Whilst these white slaves were often indentured in the same way as their willing counterparts it is an important distinction to make. An illustrative example of such a kidnap story is that of (1730-1799).
n the 17th century, nearly two-thirds of settlers to the Americas from theBritish Isles came as indentured servants. Given the high death rate, many servants did not live to the end of their terms.
