You called her a racist. You should be able to explain it.

Not all scholarships are paid for by you. In fact, if it was a full-ride, odds are that only a small part came from the government.
People have historically dropped out of high school for many reasons--family, financial, military. Hard to accept a blanket statement that all were bad behavers.
You seem to have difficulty in financial assistance being based on financial need--although it is hard to understand why. But, it is also contingent on being accepted to a college and matriculating.
Since you are fond of portraying yourself as one of the wealthy, why don't you and your friends get together to start a college fund for some of the deserving over the $50,000 limit? The folks at the Columbus Foundation will be very happy to set up a fund for you, and you can attach darned near any rules you want. I'm certain that donations are tax deductible, so maybe you can use it to balance out what you believe to by your over-contribution to tax supported financial aid.
I have 5 kids; and 4 are in college as we speak. Both daughters are in Masters programs, a freshman and sophomore for the boys. Also have a 15 year old at home.

and what is wealthy to you?
anyone who earns more than you?

and with 4 kids in 3 different schools, I have seen with my own eyes who is paying for college; and who gets a free ride.

when you are telling me to set up a fund for a freebie, I just want to know when YOU are going to pay your fair share?

Mom should have spoke out the first time the kid was shot.

And made sure it did not happen again.

Naturally, to you and them, it's all whitey's fault.
And, in your consideration of the facts, what are those issues?

I'm not the one bichen about how unfair the system is to kids who aren't poor.

And perhaps you would care to enlighten us as to what government funded programs are providing free rides.

Yes. Those are the facts that you presented.

You also said you based conclusions on them.

What are your conclusions?

The exact opposite of yours, which undoubtedly contains the words, "white," "privilege," "institutional," and "racism."

Why do you squirm everytime you are called on to support your own statements?

It's called not playing your childish games, Reader. You, like Che, weasel around and try to bait people into a "gotcha" post. I've made my position perfectly clear to those with the ability to think without the fog of leftist hate obscuring their faculties.
Try somewhere else.

You make your points perfectly clear to yourself and other teabaggers. When pressed, you can't defend anything you say. I've seen crackheads do a better job of sticking to a story than you do.

Che, I've been dealing with Reader for three years. Same old BS, and she is well aware of my stand on the issues.
When you learn how things work between longtime posters in Columbus, maybe your light bulb will illuminate.
The fact that you associate with crackheads comes as no surprise. Are you a buyer or a seller?

As far as I am aware, George had no kids out of wedlock and was on government benefits for an extended period of time, I presume he pays taxes as well.
