CNN.com - Whites-only scholarship generates controversy - Feb. 18, 2004: "(CNN) -- A whites-only scholarship to be awarded Wednesday by a student Republican organization at Roger Williams University in Providence, Rhode Island, has drawn both controversy and support. "

My wife and I have often quipped that we were going to open a "Caucasian Cultural Center" here in Honolulu. Naturally we would expect some outrage...the kind of outrage that strangely does not seem to be focused at the Japanese Cultural Center, Chinese Cultural Center, Filipino Cultural Center....

"The state Republican Party has criticized the scholarship as having racist overtones."

I believe that's the point.
