Stormzy launches a racist scoloship

Strormzy sponsors a racist scholarship for two black people.

While I sympathise with the generosity, I find that by excluding white people it's racist.

You can't have it both ways; for what seems generations, we've been told any detrimental action towards ethnic minorities could be seen a racist. I'm struggling to see the difference here. Surely, this has to be detrimental towards whites.

There are many cases of positive discrimination for minority groups.

It would be clearly unfair if we had an otherwise level playing field, but that's not the case. Without some intervention, those at the top of society, mainly white male middle class will ensure that they and their off-springs remain there, suppressing opportunities for others born with fewer advantages.

Funny how some liberals will praise this and defend a blatant act of racism but at the same time would scream racist if it was awarded to "only" white students.

There are many 'races/colours' other than Black and White. There's a wonderful, mix of humans in the world. Opportunities should be for all regardless of race, colour or creed.
