    Default Whites Only Scholarship Creates Outrage

    Whites Only Scholarship Creates Outrage

    College Republicans Say Scholarship Was Created to Spark Debate

    By ANNE-MARIE DORNING

    BOSTON, Nov. 22, 2006 — Joe Mroszczyk, president of the College Republicans at Boston University, admits he set out to stir up a hornet's nest when he came up with the idea of offering a whites-only scholarship at the school. But he got a little more buzz than he bargained for.

    "To tell you the truth, we didn't see this coming," Mroszczyk said. "The Drudge Report picked it up yesterday, and today I just finished a round of national interviews. It's kind of overwhelming."

    All the media attention is focused on a $250 Caucasian Achievement and Recognition Scholarship offered by Mroszczyk and the BU chapter of the College Republicans. Applicants must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.2 or higher; they must write two essays; and, here's the kicker, they must be at least one-quarter Caucasian.

    The application itself offers an explanation: "We believe that racial preferences in all their forms are perhaps the worst form of bigotry confronting America today."

    According to Mroszczyk, his group is offering the scholarship to point out "how ridiculous it is to have any sort of racially based scholarship."

    At BU, for example, students who are at least one-quarter Hispanic can apply for a National Hispanic Recognition Scholarship.

    "There are plenty of poor, white, academically gifted students who need that money just as much," Mroszczyk said.

    It isn't the first time a group of students has tried this kind of stunt.

    Two years ago a chapter of the College Republicans at Roger Williams University also offered a $250 whites-only scholarship. That's where the BU students got the idea.

    "We are not doing this as some kind of white supremacy thing. I wanted to have a dialogue about racial preference," Mroszczyk said.

    It seems as if Mroszczyk has gotten his wish. People from across the country are now weighing in on the idea through e-mail and the radio. And closer to home, some BU students are having their say too.

    "It's a poor way to talk about affirmative action," said David Coreas, the 21-year-old senior who is president of the Latino fraternity Phi Iota Alpha at BU. "If they want to have a scholarship, then let them have a scholarship, but they're stirring up controversy in the wrong way."

    Coreas said he believes that racially based scholarships are necessary to level a very uneven academic playing field.

    "We have to look at the situation honestly," he said. "Caucasians tend to have a higher per capita income than Latinos and other minorities. We have to have scholarships to survive."

    Coreas said he would welcome an honest dialogue on campus about race and affirmative action.

    Mroszczyk admits even some of his good friends are shaking their heads.

    "They said I can't believe you're doing this," he said.

    But for all the talk, there are still no takers for the scholarship. The application has been available online since Nov. 7, and so far not one student has filled it out.

    That's money wasted, according to David Coreas.

    "I wish I could apply: That $250 could help me pay for my textbooks," he said.

    Coreas isn't eligible, though.

    But for BU students who have a pretty good GPA and can write a couple of essays, there's still time, as long as they're also 25 percent Caucasian. The deadline for applications is Nov. 30.

    Why not just call it a Hockey scholarship instead?

    Then I should also add that I think this is a stupid idea for so many reasons.

    Besides, there are enough scholarships out there that are slanted towards white people as it is.

    Also, if more African-Americans played Hockey I'd probably watch it. Some Lithuanian enforcer gets his ass layed out some kid from Philly or Kansas City who also played middle linebacker for West Virginia would be friggin' great.

    Interesting use of the word 'minority'. In many areas, in fact MOST of Southern California - ah, wait, all of California (?) whites are now an official minority - not majority. That is not a racist statement at all, btw.

    I think in light of this, whites should be offered minority scholarships, and perhaps they will get educated and start having more children, better jobs, etc. Its sad to see an ethnic race (any race) dwindling in numbers, racing towards extinction.

    A Swedish enforcer would be just as funny......

    Funny thing is, it's nature itself that will eventually weed out racism entirely, if we don't do it culturally first.

    Presuming we don't wipe out each other in the interim, most biological scientists agree, taking into account current world population trends, presuming we find ways to sustain ourselves with recyclable resources or colonize space, by the turn of the next millenium, the entire world population will be exclusively Asian or Pacific Rim derivatives.

    It's just a fact of evolution. Numbers will always win out in the gene pool. Me, I'd be glad to see it. Who fucking cares about skin colors and faux nationalistic pride based on genetic heritage? Small potatoes in the larger universal scheme.

    FORD, you have a pulse! Nice to hear from you bud.

    FORD, don't you think its really God's fault for making us different?

    Obviously God didn't lower us all down to the lowest common denominator government cheese, so God's not a communist. Blame him bro.

    As ridiculous as that scholarship sounds, I can see where the guy is coming from. Up here in Massachusetts, the cost of living is so fucking ridiculous, I don't think I'll be able to help pay for each of my daughter's college. Hell, I'd be hard pressed to find extra money to help them get a car. Our new governor (Deval Patrick) wants to create two new laws. The first? Give ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS driver's licenses. The second? Give ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS FREE college tuition to the state college of their choice. WTF! These people don't even belong here and are breaking the law because they're ILLEGAL! When will the free ride ever end for all the forms of freeloaders?
