Random Liberals

We are random liberals (who knew?). Collectively, we make up the greatest blog in the history of ourselves. We will blog about anything that suits us; mostly politics, with a little bit of religion and randomness to make the blog exciting.

College Republicans

Yesterday, the College Republicans of Roger Williams University in Providence, RI awarded a scholarship open only to whites to a junior named Adam Noska. The junior said that he accepted the award because he needed the money, which as a collegian myself, I can understand. The group said that they wanted to make a statement about Affirmative Action and scholarships open only to minorities, which is their right. It was a completely tasteless and insensitive way to do so, but again, it is their right. What chaps me more than anything else is that the president of Roger Williams' College Republicans is of Puerto Rican descent who benefitted himself from a scholarship open only to minorities. I cannot begin to describe how hypocritical that is, so I won't try. Suffice it to say that even the state Republican Party is denouncing the scholarship.
