Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

Scholarships and Minorities

with one comment

A friend and I, was hard down arguing if minority scholarships are fair. She was saying that scholarships should not just be targeting to minorities, it should be for the public. And I was trying to explain to her why I believe that they were fair. I went on to say that typically minorities come from lower incomes and for them to be able to attain their goals, knowing that finances will not stop them from their dreams they’ll be more willing to pursue it. Not only that white familes usually have a means to pay for school and I was trying to explain that to her. I mean in essence she does have an arguement that many whites, make alot more as to where they aren’t less priviledged but not actually finanacially ready to bring on the burdens of college expenses. So I would like to ask the class, do you believe that minority ONLY scholarships are fair?

  1. I’m white and I have no problem with minority scholarships. There are tons of scholarships out there for anyone and there is no sense in getting mad over minority-only scholarships.
