Feb 23, '13I am a "white" male, and I find people looking for scholarships for white males to be sort of ignorant. White is not a race, it is a color. Black students do not get scholarships because they are black, they get them for being African-American. Some get them for living in a ****** town, and didnt have as many opportunities as we white people had.
I don't mean to sound ****** here, but instead of looking for white people scholarships, find out more about your heritage. There are scholarships out there for Italian-Americans, German-Americans, etc. you just have to look. Also, we are already able to find money by being male in a predominantly female occupation. Enough arguing about racism.
Feb 26, '13Quote from MrChicagoRNobviously mr chicago is centuries old and personally experienced historical discrimination. i am centuries old, too, and was enslaved by the muslim barbary pirates off the coast of tripoli, like 2 million other european whites between 1600 and 1850. when the venture company my ship was financed by refused to pay my ransom, i was sold into a lifelong slavery in north africa. this was some years before the United States Marines appeared and forced the pasha to stop the piracy of American flagged vessels, ransoms for which made up 20-25% of the entire US budget by the time Madison took office...In other words, your complaining about experiencing a small degree of the discrimination that others have faced for centuries?
