Pay $500 more in tuition at DevBootCamp if you are male, white, or Asian
DevBootCamp ^ | June 25, 2014

Posted on 06/25/2014 8:18:06 AM PDT by reaganaut1

We offer a $500 scholarship if you're female, a veteran of the U.S. Military, or from an ethnic minority group underrepresented in the software engineering field (African American, Chicano/Latino, Native American, Pacific Islander).

How the heck can a "scholarship" awarded by an educational institution based on race or sex be legal? I know there are charities such as the United Negro College Fund that give race-based scholarships, which does not bother me, as long as any group can start a charity to benefit its members. But when a school gives the "scholarship", it is effectively charging different customers different amounts, based on race or sex. That can't be legal.

In general, no, businesses cannot charge different groups different prices. Either the civil rights laws should protect everyone or no one.

Have an educational institution give scholarships only to white, heterosexual, Christian, males and see how long before the federal lawsuits begin.

They actually do that in historically black schools.

Sure you can. Try offering one where eligibility is limited to males, whites or Asians. Let me know what happens.

Provided that the private business is not subsidized by the taxpayers (and none of them should be), a business should be able to do what it wants. If they like making money, they will come up with a reasonable pricing model. The civil rights laws are silly, as they assume that a business owner would refuse to accept someone’s money without good cause.

Its worse than that. They really aren’t giving “scholarships.” They are setting a price point and then jacking up the price on whites and Asians. Its not like they have some magic pot of money to dole out while keeping prices for everyone else low.

There are good reasons why certain groups are under-represented in the field. The cost of tuition does not number among them.

I have an even more disturbing story for you.

I am an urban public school teacher. A number of years ago, a received a scholarship packet to distribute to my 12th graders.

It was from one of Bill Gates’s foundations. The foundation offered tuition assistance to those 12th graders who were going to college as science majors.

But not every such student was eligible. Eligibility was based on your ancestral nationality.

There was a very long list. It was like a world atlas. Algerian, Sudanese, Pacific Islander, Brazilian. It went on and on.

Then I noticed something. There was not a single European country on the list. Even Russia did not make the list. Gates could have saved himself a lot of ink by simply stating: no whites.

I threw the packet in the trash. To h*ll with that sort of thing.

Some might say that I denied those on the list from a chance at a scholarship. That might be true. But the whole concept was unethical and evil from the start. I wanted no part of it.

Right. It's a discount based on race.

It's like if I owned a night club, and set the entry cover-charge at $100, but offered an 80%-off discount if you were visibly of European descent. I would have few, if any, non-white customers.

You did the right thing.

Why help in the demise and erasure of your own people?

Maybe we should start up the United Caucasian College Fund... you know, “because a mind is a terrible thing to waste...” and all that...

sounds like a good excuse for men to indicate on their application that they “identify as a female”, surely they have scholarships for that!

Thats true, but imagine the outrage at a scholarship intended for white males only.

Goodness, somebody would be fired, boycotted and have death threats.

But this... “no white males”.... perfectly acceptable.

In the current legal climate, if you say you are female (no matter what your genitals and chromosomes look like, or that you have a beard) then they must accept you as being female.

And if you can “identify” as female, why not as “black” or “hispanic”?

If the packet was obviously excluding anyone of African ancestry, there’d be “outrage”,

so, you did the right thing.

I see your point. But I would have done the same thing had the scholarship been open to European descendants only. America is (or was) supposed to be a melting pot, with advancement due to one's ability.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Now, you know that would NEVER fly.....

Remember a few years back when some ‘Men’ lodged law suits because ‘Hooters’ would not even allow them to apply for a job and others sued over establishments offering ‘Ladies Night’ saying it was unfair to Males (and I guess the LGMVDSLSMFT crowd felt ‘insulted’ when she-boys were not included as ‘Ladies Night’ eligible).

I personally thought the suits frivolous BUT it may have brought light to just how ‘idiotic’ we have become.—
Of course, the only ones that really noticed were those of us that knew we were/are in ‘trouble’.

You didn’t start this - the other side did. They took advantage of the natural and compassionate decency of American folks - our people - and used it against us.

It’s called Self-Preservation and Cultural Survival now, unfortunately. That’s the reality we have to deal with.

But yes, I get your point as well.

These a&&holes proport to teach you web development.

But on their own webpage, they cannot figure out how to put in a decent left margin, and they have a tab that overlaps the main body of text -- and you cannot remove it or collapse it.

SIGN ME RIGHT UP FOR *THAT*!!!!

Legality doesn’t enter into the discussion. There are many laws that are invalid, and don’t apply.

It’s WRONG. Unfair.

I actually DO have that claim, based on pretty much the same thing - plus pictures & diary entries.

Anyway... I haven’t tried to “game” it as I’m no democRat.

I read the page, and did some reviews. $12,500 for essentially four months of intensive coding, or about $800 per week, not including food and lodging is rather harsh. To be blunt, if you have the Internet and put in the same amount of time, and you can join a couple of coding groups as well, you can probably do the same thing in maybe a little more time for considerably less money. Perhaps the job placement may be worth it IF you can get a job, but I’ll be blunt: if the school were THAT confidant you can get a job, they would not require the money up front.

Frankly, I would see this as an opportunity for a competitor to come in and offer the same thing, but with a job GUARANTEE for graduates that pass. If such jobs are really in demand, this would be a no-brainer for the most part.

I am starting the Transracial movement to take advantage of these programs. Whites can feel and identify as any race they want. Same for blacks, Asians, arabs, Persians, Indians, everyone. Everyone can chose whichever race they identify with and be granted the entitlements given to the race of their choosing.

If some freakshow that chopped off his own penis and stuffed a bunch of silicon in his chest can identify as a woman than I can sure identify myself as a Filipino.
