College Republicans Supporting White Only Scholarships

Apparently the Party of Lincoln is truly completing its transformation to the Party of David Duke. The pimple-faced brownshirts at Boston U. who represent the future of the New Party of the Old Confederacy are making a strong case for White Power:
Looking to draw attention to what they call the "worst form of bigotry confronting America today," Boston University's College Republicans are circulating an application for a "Caucasian Achievement and Recognition Scholarship" that requires applicants be at least 25 percent Caucasian.
The rest of the the story here.

    Dear Mr. Horn
    I am a Kindergarten teacher who has been most frustrated for several years with NCLB. I lately received an analogy which came from California (I am in GA) and has gone through many states. I myself passed it to many people and they in turn passed it to siblings/friends who are teachers, many of which are in yet more states.

    NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND - The Football Version

    1. All teams must make the state playoffs and all MUST win the
    championship. If a team does not win the championship, they will be on probation until they are the champions, and coaches will be held
    accountable. If after two years they have not won the championship, their footballs and equipment will be taken away UNTIL they do win the championship.
    2. All kids will be expected to have the same football skills at the same time even if they do not have the same conditions or opportunities to practice on their own. NO exceptions will be made for lack of interest in football, a desire to perform athletically, or genetic abilities or disabilities of themselves or their parents. ALL KIDS WILL PLAY FOOTBALL AT A PROFICIENT LEVEL!
    3. Talented players will be asked to workout on their own, without instruction. This is because the coaches will be using all their instructional time with the athletes who aren't interested in football, have limited athletic ability or whose parents don't like football.
    4. Games will be played year round, but statistics will only be kept in the 4th, 8th, and 11th game.
    It will create a New Age of Sports where every school is expected to
    have the same level of talent and all teams will reach the same minimum goals. If no child gets ahead, then no child gets left behind. If parents do not like this new law, they are encouraged to vote for vouchers and support private schools that can screen out the non-athletes and prevent their children from having to go to school with bad football players.
