"Caucasians tend to have a higher per capita income than Latinos and other minorities," Coreas notes. "We have to have scholarships to survive." ------------- Are you freaking kidding me?!? #1, they're bitching about a "whites only" scholarship in which you don't even have to be totally white to get, just 1/4, #2, giving scholarships based on ANY kind of race is stupid. But, don't give me this BS that "we have to have scholarships to survive". It's no wonder hispanic people and black people have a hard time getting ahead in America, look what their community leaders keep preaching at them all the time! "you're treated unfairly, you're disadvantaged, you need special help, you can't do anything on your own, the government will do that for you", on and on and on... We keep being told not to do everything for our children or they will grow up with an entitlement mentality, that everyone should cater to them, yet we're allowing the adults in our society to be treated that way! It's all poor, entitlement mentality bullcrap that's constantly pushed by minority community leaders so they can attain public office and obtain public money. Whether you're black, hispanic, white, or whatever... take the energy you put into trying to get help from someone else (be it government, church, etc) and put that into figuring out how to make more money and you'll do 100x better than any of your peers could ever think about. Why? Rich people focus on making money. Think like a rich person, not a poor-pitiful-me person.

there are so many scholarships involving race why is having a scholorship for whites a big deal. Its just like people of color calling us "crackers" or something like that. But the moment we say anything about there race were the racist ones. I don't get it are they not just as racist for calling us names.

I think they should do away with ALL scholarships based on race. That includes the ones set in place by the NAACP. Affirmative action is bullsh*t. We shouldn't be paying for mistakes made YEARS ago. Let's live in the here and now for once. Not the past. If a student of ANY race does well in school and doesn't have money for college, they should ALL have an EQUAL shot at scholarship funds and for an EQUAL amount. Everyone's talking "Equality", start there. End of story.

I have put in place scholarships for both deserving students of any race, and 1 black scholarship (1st generation college). Scholarships are, for the most part, now colorblind.
Having worked in the public school system for almost 30 years, and working with primarily minority students, there is A LOT of money out there for those who care to apply.
I set up my little minority scholarship to motivate some of my students because their families were unable or unwilling to assist their children in their quest for higher education.
And, BTW, I'm white.
Awaiting the onslaught of conservatives to slam me but guess what? I don't care.
ALL of these students are out next generation and out best hope for a successful future for our grandchildren.

Well I am not white I am considered Native American however this didn't come across racist to me ever race other has a scholarship program however I do believe a scholarship should have NOTHING to do with anyone's race it should be given to any good student with a bright future who's family can't afford college without race being a factor but it is so let the white kids have there's to he's right there is bright white kids who have a future and there families need help with college not all white ppl are rich gosh!! This is so stupid

What's the big deal every other race has a scholar dedicated just to them but white people can't. Kind of a contradiction quit making it all about race.

@Joy.
Ah. Errr.... you are educated? You are an attorney?
Somehow I doubt that.
Let' see: Jeews an niggers...a few too many typos there for an educated human being. Assuming a lot there...the human part, that is.
Go away you silly troll and get your GED. THEN we'll talk.
