If you research what scholarships are available to high school kids going to college (as opposed to those already attending college), you will quickly learn that many exclude Caucasians. I find this disturbing. A kid is excluded based on the color or their skin or ethnic background (e.g., white but not “Hispanic”)? More interesting, there have been a few tiny (in dollar amount) scholarships that were, in fact, for whites only – all came under serious fire. Yet, the Gates Millennium scholarship, which blatantly excludes any and all Caucasians, is “celebrated”. There are plenty of talented, bright, underprivileged Caucasian kids that, b/c of the color of their skin, will not be able to go where the “other kids go”.
Racism is either a good, or it is not. It looks to me like it is now being celebrated.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
