NO WHITES ALLOWED: Stormzy & University Of Cambridge Launch Black-Only Scholarship
Grime rapper Stormzy has caused controversy after launching a black-only Cambridge scholarship scheme which will pay for four talented black students to go to one of the world’s most prestigious universities.
The scheme, which bans all white students from applying, has sparked outrage online with many describing it as “racist” because of its black-only policy.
Speaking to BBC Breakfast, the 25-year-old artist said: “If you’re academically brilliant don’t think because you come from a certain community that studying at one of the highest education institutions in the world isn’t possible.”
Of course, what he failed to point out is that he is not selecting students based on their community; he is selecting them based on their skin colour.
The scholarship, which will give students £18,000 per year, was launched in partnership with the University Of Cambridge and is only open to students who “have ‘Black African’, ‘Black Caribbean’, or ‘Black Other’ ethnicity,” according to the University’s website.
Nathan Ryding, the Chairman of Young Independence – UKIP’s youth wing, told Kipper Central: “This would be fantastic news, if it was for ALL students.
“Instead, what we have is a racist scholarship that prevents white working class kids from having the same opportunity.
“If this were a white celebrity creating a scholarship for white kids, there would be uproar up and down the country.
“There should not be a double standard when it comes to racism.”
Speaking exclusively to Kipper Central, UKIP Education Spokesman David Kurten added: “Stormzy is using his own money to fund scholarships for 4 black students to go to Cambridge, and the scheme does not interfere with the admissions process, so his act of generosity is to be welcomed.
“We should also welcome other philanthropists who provide scholarships specifically for white working class boys, a much larger group which struggles to gain access to Oxbridge courses.
“Better still is UKIP’s policy of paying tuition fees for British students in STEM subjects, which would remove the need for scholarships in the first place, so academically-gifted students of all backgrounds could access high-value University courses without family wealth being a factor.”
