By Ryan Lovelace, The College Fix

Butler University has awarded endowed scholarships on the basis of race and gender, The College Fix has learned.

Butler removed the listing of all endowed scholarships, totaling approximately $2.4 million, from the university website before the 2013-2014 school year after inquiry from a parent of a prospective student.

The Scholarships

The “race-conscious” scholarships Butler has offered include scholarships that are only awarded to African-American students, an award limited to “a female student of Hispanic descent,” an award limited to “a woman of Indian descent” (unless Butler cannot find one) and an award that declares, “Preference will be given to Caucasian undergraduates enrolled in the College of Business.” The whites-preferred scholarship was created after the benefactor’s wife died in 2002, according to literature from Butler’s College of Business.

Roger Clegg, president and counsel of the Center for Equal Opportunity who worked as a deputy assistant attorney general in the Reagan and Bush administrations and held the second highest position in the Civil Rights Division, said Butler’s status as a private institution does not impact the legality of the scholarships in a state such as Indiana.

“What’s relevant is the federal law,” Clegg said. “And the federal law applies essentially the same way to both public universities and private universities because private universities all get federal money, except for two, which you know [are] Grove City and Hillsdale.”

As a private institution that accepts federal money, Clegg said, Butler is prohibited from racial discrimination under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which the Supreme Court has ruled is coextensive with the Constitution in banning discrimination.

“If the university is involved, either in funding the scholarship or in choosing the recipient, then I think that you would have a hard time justifying a scholarship that is racially exclusive,” Clegg said.

Ironically, the American left is top heavy with white males, while the American left makes white males enemy #1. As with most things progressive, logic isn't a factor.

The curious thing, to me, is that white males have been groomed for accepting this role, and most under 40 just lay down and take it.

Therein lies the difference twixt collaborators and the rest of us.

The overriding theme of Liberalism is that anything that would make a normal moral religious person cringe is automatically a good thing and something should be promoted. And there is no 'logic' to it whatsoever. It is always about promoting the fring over the majority and the more perverted and demented the idea is, the better.
 
It is obviously by it's very nature destructive and self-destructive. But Liberals do not care. They have a 'burn it down' mentality. They consider themselves to be elites and revolutionaries and they always 'know better' about anything than you do.
 
But they are in for a rude surprise. They think they are 'fighting the establishment' when in reality they are fighting for the establishment against opponents of 'the establishment'.
 
They should read up on what happened to Castro's supporters after he took over Cuba. Or what happened to the Soviet supporters, or the supporters of Hitler in Germany.
 
These people are supporting their own destruction, but Liberals are so close-minded and fanatical in their own belief in their own 'correctness', that they just do not care. Just like all the millions of people before them who did the same thing.

You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
