I know someone out there will appreciate this story. Financial aid once open only to minorities will be open to all students, says The New York Times. The NAACP response?
My inbox is unceremoniously littered with offers for scholarships and aid for minorities in psychology, neuroscience, etc. I don’t want to get in trouble, but I will say that the environment is still very friendly for minorities. A colleague of mine, 2nd generation Mexican who was in a fraternity in college, told me how when he transferred to Michigan they sent him a glowing love letter because he was a minority. The guy was a smart, hard worker and didn’t need a handout or a pat on the back from UM on account of his genetics, and I felt he kind of resented the treatment. I would have.

|I KNOW that Gahagan has some comments on this…he only did a Law School Thesis on this.
My humble two cents. Many successful minorities (including the subject of your previous post) resent any implications that they might have gotten where they all because of their race and not simply because of their intelligence and ability.
But hey…what do I know, I’m a white guy.

|You guys are a bunch of pretentious, presumptious neo-con blowhards that are just used to America giving you your way. You REAK!|

|I’ll have to agree with Johnny…yours is an intriguing and thought-provoking website.|

|Frogger, very courageous of you to include your website. I visited it and learned a lot. I do want to point out that “reak” is not a word, so I’m not really sure what you are trying to say about us. If you are trying to use the homophone (sorry, that’s not in your little insult thesaurus) reek, that’s fine. We here can handle a few insults. I don’t know if this holds true for those scoring the written portion of your GRE test, or the next guy who reviews your resume, but here at Logipundit we will not abide by bad english.|
