When I went to collage there was many government aid programs. If you are black, native american, female, the only member of your family to attend collage, have a poor family, have kids, are foriegn, ex... then there was a extra boost for you. But if you are male, white, blond, and from a good family then screw you! My point is giving anyone a benifit based for any reason upon race, sex, heritage, or beliefs makes your a sexist, racist, makes you a discimanatory person. People say, well this group of people is poor, or this group of people needs help... Well that may very well be, but take note of the Irish. They came over here in hords during a famine. They brought next to nothing, and many of them died trying to get here. When they got here they were dispised and treated poorly. Yet they didn't just sit on there asses and say this isn't fair, or your not nice, they worked dam hard and made good lives for themselves. This goes to prove no matter how low you start, you have no one to blame but yourself for not improving your station in life. So why should anyone be given exta aid based upon what life delt them? It is not the governments job to even the playing field, and who's to say what is even? If you support evening the playing field, consider this. If you allow the government to tilt the board in someones favor, they can tilt it in whatever way they dam well please. Why is it right to make two wrongs to rectify one wrong? Please mention other ways you believe our government is being racist, sexist, or discriminating in the name of "being fair."
