Ohhh ok, in case he pulls the race card?
I'm currently studying in an English University and I had an African American transfer as a flat mate for my first year.... He was far from the sharpest tool in the shed, not sure how he got transfer placement. He was 23 and couldn't even look after himself properly..

Well in America here, because of anti-segregation and 'equal rights' issues, Scholarships are offered to black students because they're black: based on no other factor.
Originally it was to help because there were universities who would not let in qualified black students... Then the government passed requirements.
Unfortunately, this means some qualified white students get rejected because a black student (who is either equally or less qualified) applied. The black will always get the spot, in order to fill racial minority quotas.
Pretty much if a black and white student of equal qualification applied, the black would get it. Sometimes the black will get it even if he is not as qualified.

The scholarships are not really about anti-segregation or equal rights, though that mentality is why they're tolerated. They're typically offered by black and minority organizations. Jewish organizations offer scholarships to Jewish kids, too, even though Jews never faced discrimination in the US to the extent that black people did.
The rest of the stuff cobaltlumi said is partly true but not quite right, I think. Racial quotas did once exist in higher education, but I believe they're no longer legal. Some institutions still take race into consideration (it depends on the institution) but they're not allowed to have strict quotas. In any case, being black might make you eligible for scholarships but it's not enough to get you in anywhere, except maybe as a tie-breaker.

Yes... it is.
But without it, universities will be pretty racist (why can't they just pick the top qualified...)
and I can't really say, being white, but being black is a disadvantage in life. It is easy to ignore, but most black families are more disadvantaged than white; while it may be the parents own fault, the child and student can do nothing to fix this...
The only time it gets on my nerves is like this picture: 1.3 GPA (terrible grades, not even trying) and scholarships offered.
#100 - Ruspanic (05/13/2013) [-]
Whatever scholarships are offered for being black come from private black organizations, not universities. And most of those black scholarships would not be awarded to a student with 1.3 GPA unless he can write a brilliant essay or something, or has some other outstanding qualifications (or financial need) that distinguish him from the millions of other black students.

Just some simple astronomy classes taught me this. Astrophysics often leads back to simple chemistry and mathematics, so a bit of knowledge of everything is required to understand anything up above us. All the stuff you learn in it is useless 99% of the time, but at rare points like this, the useless knowledge pays off.
