Whites Only!

local6.com - News - Student Group Offers Whites Only Scholarship: "A student group at Roger Williams University is offering a new scholarship for which only white students are eligible, in a move they say is designed to protest affirmative action."

I love it. Finally someone got the balls to stand up to this crap.

"We think that if you want to treat someone according to character and how well they achieve academically, then skin color shouldn't really be an option," he said. "Many people think that coming from a white background you're automatically privileged, you're automatically rich and your parents pay full tuition. That's just not the case."

Just like coming from a black background doesn't automatically mean you are a thug and a ganster.

"No matter what my ethnicity is, I'm making a statement that scholarships should be given out based on merit and need," Mattera told the Providence Journal. He said two other group members who are Cuban and Guatemalan also support the white scholarship."

Mattera is Puerto Rican. You go boy. Viva la revolution!
