EXCLUSIVE: University Caught Excluding Whites, Males from Scholarships
Fox Nation ^ | May 19, 2014 | Ryan Lovelace, The College Fix

Posted on 05/19/2014 11:32:49 AM PDT by Kaslin

Butler University has awarded endowed scholarships on the basis of race and gender, The College Fix has learned.

Butler removed the listing of all endowed scholarships, totaling approximately $2.4 million, from the university website before the 2013-2014 school year after inquiry from a parent of a prospective student.

The Scholarships

The “race-conscious” scholarships Butler has offered include scholarships that are only awarded to African-American students, an award limited to “a female student of Hispanic descent,” an award limited to “a woman of Indian descent” (unless Butler cannot find one) and an award that declares, “Preference will be given to Caucasian undergraduates enrolled in the College of Business.” The whites-preferred scholarship was created after the benefactor’s wife died in 2002, according to literature from Butler’s College of Business.

Awarding Scholarships on Basis of Race = prima facie Racism.

My youngest son is working very hard to get into medical school, and finding that other obviously less-qualified candidates are getting in ahead of him based factors not related to merit.

And, my son is exactly the type of person you would want as a doctor if your life depended on it.

We *all* will be paying a dear price for this affirmative action crap.

Oh Crap. The Hispanic and Black scholarships are EVERYWHERE.

What’s really unusual is the one for a Caucasian.

They only mentioned it to imply that there is some sort of balance, but that’s nonsense. The vast majority of the “underprivileged” scholarships specifically target non-white ethnic or racial groups.

since these were endowed schollies I didn’t know they weren’t allowed.
Endowed scholarships have been around for over a hundred yers
and notice nearly all ethnic racial groups have had someone endow a scholarship for them so it isn’t like only white people had access to endowed shcollies

If I want to give my money for a scholarship for only strawberry blonde smart women I should be able to

“Time for some class action law suits.”

Yes, but also time for alternatives to university education. The mission and intent of universities was noble, at one time, and many faculty still have this intent - but the institutions themselves in too many instances have lost their way.

Do they really have enough applicants of Armenian, Azerbaijani, Georgian, or Ossetian descent to limit a scholarship to Caucasians?

there have always been scholarships with donor-designated ethnic or religious beneficiary groups.... these have gotten by....been accepted for the most part...because the vast bulk of scholarship money is not so designated

however, sometimes things do operate differently. Some time back (admittedly in the Paleolithic Era) a major university reserved ALL of its scholarship money (at least in one key professional school) to one designated minority race, only. White needn’t apply. When you asked, they merely said it was “by vote of the faculty”

so, these sort of things do need to be watched....

Right!

I may appear to be a straight, white, male; but I IDENTIFY as an omni-racial, tetra-sexual, mega-gendered, macro-disabled victim of pre-traumatic-stress syndrome, and I want ALL the special treatment, scholarships and other free crap to which persons identifying themselves as such are entitled to.

Either racial discrimination is acceptable or it is not, there is no middle-ground where discriminating in favor of your favorite races is right and racial preferences for other races is wrong.

Race-exclusive scholarships are by their very nature racially discriminatory. You can’t be opposed to racism AND in favor of minority-only college scholarships, that’s by definition impossible. If you’re opposed to white scholarships and in favor of black scholarships, then by definition you’re a racist and likely a liar as well.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is openly racist. Not surprising since the Gates are liberal weenies. They have created the Gates Millennium Scholars to aid students in pursuit of education. The judging criteria selects students based upon:

- Academic achievement
- Community Service
- Leadership potential

There’s only one other little small criteria…no whites allowed! Here is the full criteria to qualify for some of Bill and Melinda’s money:

Students are eligible to be considered for a GMS scholarship if they:

• Are African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian and Pacific Islander American, or Hispanic American;
• Are a citizen/legal permanent resident or nationals of the United States;
• Have attained a cumulative GPA of 3.3 on a 4.0 scale (un-weighted);
• Will be enrolling for the first-time at a U.S. accredited* college or university as a full-time, degree-seeking, first-year student in the fall of 2010; or GED
• Have demonstrated leadership abilities through participation in community service, extracurricular or other activities;
• Meet the Federal Pell Grant* eligibility criteria; and
• Have all three forms (Nominee Personal Information Form completed by the student, Nominator Form completed by an educator familiar with the student’s academic record and a Recommender Form completed by a person familiar with the student’s leadership and community service) submitted by the deadline.

My son is from northern Russia. He has been in the United States since a few days after his first birthday and is an American citizen. He is of Scandinavian stock - light blond hair, blue eyes, etc.

But, since he was born in a small village in the foothills of the Ural mountains, the generally recognized boundary between Europe and Asia, I hereby declare that he is an ‘Asian-American’, and you all had BETTER treat him as such...

LOL! Yep, those particular nationalities are really the only Caucasians, aren't they.

And this:

The whites-preferred scholarship was created after the benefactor’s wife died in 2002, according to literature from Butler’s College of Business.

We may not like it. It may go against our idea of fairness, but if that is the wishes of the people putting up the scholarship money, the only real choices should be to (a)follow the express guidelines of the benefactor(s), or (b)return the endowment.

There are score of nationality and ethnic based scholarships out there ranging from $50 to several thousand. My daughter picked up a number of these for a little research and work. Those which are under $1000 or so do not have hundreds of competitors for every scholarship awarded and a good student actually has a fairly good chance of getting them.

You won’t find many scholarships for which the criterion is being simply white, but white ethnic clubs, eg Italian, Lithuanian, and Polish, do give scholarships.

The best civil disobediance I can think of in this case is for whites to mark AA on their application forms.

Then force the institution to 1)admit that they only gave the scholarship due to race 2) put forth a pigment pallet or lineage guideline that they can prove you don’t meet 3) challenge anything they come up with on #2 as being arbitrary and unequally enforced.

Yes, and if you endow a scholarship for the smartest applicant, you should be rest assured that someone else didn't take it upon themselves to cast out certain people based on race.

There may be scholarships for caucasians if they are female or gay. It’s straight white males who are the whipping boy in modern society.

Right you are. The fact that VA (and Indian Health Service, for that matter) doctors are paid far less than physicians in the private sector, ensures that the VA and IHS have worse doctors, generally speaking.

I had an employee (Germanic extraction, raised but lapsed Lutheran) who, when filling out a government-mandated race questionaire, entered “Native American.”

The Personnel Department lady called and asked him why he enterd “Native American” when he was clearly ‘Caucasian” ...
she was going to change his answer ...

He replied, “I was born in Saint Louis. That makes me a native of America. Leave my damned answer alone!”

Isn’t Africa the cradle of civilization? I would guess that means all of us.
