NO WHITES ALLOWED: Stormzy & University Of Cambridge Launch Black-Only Scholarship

  • 14.2K

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.”

    Could it be that the Ku Klux Clan had a point after all?

    Discrimination based on ethnicity (such as the UK has with the 2005 Discrimination Act) is simply a daft idea in the first place, (and should be scrapped), it was put in place to ensure that non-europeans ‘succeeded’ in the UK (after MPs realised migrants en masse do not integrate), at the expense of the european population to whom those jobs would have belonged to. Given the great success of the Discrimination Act more non europeans then entered the country on a planned conveyor belt that worked to weaken the cohesion of the european nation. That breakup of cohesion is now being expressed by overt ‘positive’ discrimination, (not the kind of below the radar discrimination that has always been there chipping away at white society as migrants favour their own), where certain minority groups are now openly suddenly elevated to superior status and privilege over the rest of us – such as we have here with Cambridge – and this is not the only incident. No legal action will be taken – because it is an ideological, political law, not a law for all as law should be.

    The crassness of this law is only equalled, in my view, by the crassness of those european voters who support this law and continue to do so. Can they not see how absurd it is when a black footballer earning millions claims racism in the locker room? How can a black multi-millionaire in Britain say he is enduring discrimination? But it’s worse than that, the white guy will get the blame, and the team will be a majority non-european team. Think of the irony when the first England team turns out with 100% non-English players, it won’t be far off. You can just hear the football supporters clubs being so proud to have rid football of racism can’t you? Some achievement though to have removed English players from the English football leagues – but it is on it’s way, I see plenty on non-white teams playing in the London parks these days. The discrimination laws have done their designers proud! Me, I think this prohibition should be lifted and let all ethnic groups alone to get on with their lives and associate with whom they wish.

    I’m too old to apply myself, but I would challenge some young white student to apply for the scholarship anyway. If any questions are asked about your ethnicity, just tell them you ‘identify’ as a black African. Throw this rubbish identity politics back at them!

    On a side note, if more young black people would break out of this ‘victim mentality’ and have some respect for themselves and make an effort with school, then maybe more black people would end up going to university.

    Universities are not racist, they just want the brightest and best. And ‘academically brilliant’ black people have been going to university for years and years. But unfortunately a lot of young black people have been (deliberately in my opinion) browbeaten and influenced into ‘perceiving’ that they will never be good for anything – apart from petty crime, the “thug life”. To them its always “somebody else’s fault”, that’s how the ‘victim mentality’ works, and the ‘perception’ just spreads and spreads, from one generation to the next.

    Try a bit harder, break the cycle, and you’ll find you don’t need some racist scholarship to get you into university, you can earn your place instead.

    Whatever happened to getting some were based on ability? All positive discrimination does is to dumb down society. The time has come for the politically correct left to realise that everyone is not equal ,to celebrate our inequalities. Why must everyone go to University, traditionally centres of academic excellence, when it is patently obvious that many people, myself included, are of a practical mindset, far more suited to a technical apprenticeship. I went to Grammar School then to Tech, gaining good qualifictions, and never had a poblem getting good jobs and advancing. In these days of quotas and positive descrimination, I doubt I woul have done as well as I did. Unfortunately the old joke about how to get on in life seems to hold true, the best way to get on is to be Trans, Muslim, Gay, of Colour, and preferably an illegal immigrant with 3 wives/husbands/signiicant others at least. Most jokes are based on a grain of truth to last, this joke, or a variant has been around since I was a school 50 years ago, so it does ring true. With all women short lists, quotas for every minority,and selecting, not by abiliary, but by social circumstance drives down standards in an increasingly technological world, where we need highly trained, skilled people, not place men there be caused their religion, sex or kin colour. Personally, I can think of nothing more damaging to a person than to be in a job, not because they are the best person to fill the post, but to meet a quota, what a way to live, never knowing if you earn your pay packet because you are good at what you do, or just make up some arbitrary government ethnic target. At least, if we get a proper Brexit, we will be able to employ the best in the world, instead of having the EU foist second class people on on us as happens now. The time has come to reward ability, now there is a refreshing thought, payment by results, not by dictat!

      try befriending anyone from the communities you mentioned. might give you a reality check. being broke and white no good but broke and ‘other’ is still worse. plus let us not forget 400years of slavery brutality and genocide. give it a few more centuries and you can have a voice

  5. J.L.Kay says:

    There is a Black Police Association, but when white officers tried to set up a White Police Association, they were prevented from doing so on the grounds of discrimination. What do you make of that?

  6. Alan says:

    Maybe some white kid should apply, then take him to court for race discrimination based on their colour.

  7. MIKE MAUNDER says:

    Oh no ! This is a massive step backwards. I thought that ‘Colour Difference’ was a thing of the past. Unification of black and white was lead by the professions of Doctors, Nurses, Police, Accountants, Solicitors etc. etc. It seems that the Entertainment profession is a long way behind the others ! Now don’t get me wrong. I agree with David Kurten in his praise of Stormzy, but disagree with both of them for bringing in a Colour Question. THAT IS JUST PLAIN WRONG. Education must be upon ability alone, and forget colour difference !

    Segregation is so progressive!

  9. Jon says:

    This piece talks about the “racism” of the scholarship, conveniently forgetting a few — what I like to call — “facts”:

    1. White students are the overwhelming majority at Oxford and Cambridge — by a country mile.

    2. White people are the overwhelming majority of people in the U.K.

    3. Stormzy is himself black. You can see this by — what I like to call — “looking at” him. He is therefore keen to support fellow young, black people in pursuing their ambitions.

    4. His scholarship supports 2 black students.

    5. 2 extra black students at Oxbridge is hardly going to cause a paradigm shift against the oppressed white majority, is it now?

    6. There aren’t many institutions or careers where being white is a hindrance and you need the help of an affluent young popstar to help overcome the absence of white people.

    “Racism”. Are they taking the mick? Pathetic. Go away and have a proper think next time, UKIP, you dullards.

    No reality check needed. You mention slavery, I used to employ an ancestor of a slave, he alwayssaid that without slavery he would stll be clubbing missinarys for the pot in darkest Africa istead ha was a decorated Royal Marine NCO. Nelson, on nd of his first trips to the Carribean as a Captain was anti slavery patrols, or country was among the first to recognise the “wrong” of slavery. If ou look at Turner’s Trafalgar, it is a black sailor who is pointing out the sniper who shot Nelson, 10% of the sailors at Trafalgar were black! Speaking for myself, I do not care what race, colour or creed a person is, providing they do not try to influence my lifestyle choices, I will not theirs. Oh, and I know all about being broke, when my wife died, my income fell by over 2/3 to less than £90 a week, with a 3 grand funeral to pay for, no funeral grant or widdowers payments, it took 3 years to catch up! As for having a voice, I believe in exercising my (and your) absolute right to free speech, something by your comment about having a voice in a few hundred years you do not believe in! I will go to my grave fighting for free speech, and your right to have your say, even when I may not agree with you. All I ask is that I be afforded the same courtesy.

    Who else is going to help these young black men progress in life the UK government
    At least the man is doing something positive you haters need to fuck right off

  13. Tony says:

    Such ignorance and stupidity. Black communities are marginalised and there is a serious issue with black gang violence in London. He s reaching out to a minority who no matter what any of you say or think realistically do have a harder time gaining opportunities as a whole.

    I think its ridiculous people have an issue with this. Just more of the same from this crowd, use anything to justify their own tendencies.

    Take a break.

  14. Peter says:

    I have seen scholarships for Indian only, Spanish only, Chinese only, African only,Polish only, Jewish only. So if it’s black only what difference does it make? If the others are not racist then it cannot possibly be racist. He’s helping to give other people opportunities because perhaps he can identify with the struggles that group of people face!
