The College Assholes strike again
BU College Republicans rally on Comm
BU group offers white scholarship
Award meant to protest race-based scholarships
Looking to draw attention to what they call the "worst form of bigotry confronting America today," Boston University's College Republicans are circulating an application for a "Caucasian Achievement and Recognition Scholarship" that requires applicants be at least 25 percent Caucasian.
"Did we do this to give a scholarship to white kids? Of course not," the scholarship reads. "Did we do it to trigger a discussion on what we believe to be the morally wrong practice of basing decisions in our schools and our jobs on racial preferences rather than merit? Absolutely."
The scholarship, which is privately funded by the BUCR without the support of the university, is meant to raise awareness, group members say. BUCR member argue that racial preferences are a form of "bigotry." The group has a similar view on affirmative action.
The application for the $250 scholarship, due Nov. 30, requires applicants be full-time BU undergraduate students and one-fourth Caucasian and maintain at least a 3.2 cumulative GPA. Applicants must submit two essays, one describing the applicant's ancestry and one describing "what it means to you to be a Caucasian-American today."
BUCR President Joe Mroszczyk said he spoke to Dean of Students Kenneth Elmore before publicly releasing the scholarship to make sure it would be legal. Mroszczyk said BUCR members also talked to others beforehand, some of whom were initially "agitated or upset" but understood the point after members explained themselves, he said.
Let's see, white surburan kids going to one of the most expensive private universities in the US feel victimized.
They should stop in the library and look at some yearbooks. See how many non-white faces are there from before 1980.
What the hell is wrong with the College Assholes? Every stunt they come up with is racist to an extreme level. If it isn't hunting Mexicans, it's making fun of blacks. I mean, most colleges don't have a Klan chapter, but they have a College Assholes chapter.
They repeatedly define the GOP as the White party with their actions and no one calls them on it.
The College Assholes are killing the GOP.
So at least something good is coming from this.
