P. Diddy's son got a football scholarship! They should take it away from him! It isn't right that he gets anything because his father is rich! No, wait! He has smokin' hot moves on the playing field, but nevermind that or his high GPA from a good school; they only gave him the scholarship because P. Daddy has half a billion dollars and the college wants a new stadium!
No, wait! They should evaluate the families of potential scholarship students and give ME the money instead, implies one student. Because I actually have to work and take out loans like pretty much the rest of America. Umm-kay.
Now what if P. Diddy's kid got into the school because he's black and they gave a bit on his test scores? How about we suppose that for a moment (not true so far as I know, but let's suppose)? Nobody but a couple of white kids who didn't make the cut would be upset. Let the kid EARN something though, and notice only the black FEMALE student is complaining. The white MEN, you know, the ones who would actually MIGHT have had a shot at actually competing with Bitty P. Diddy for this scholarship, admire the guy for his talent, say more power to him, and have moved on with their day.
Hm! Ok, I don't know what to make of that. I really don't. What I really think is that it is a bit insensitive to encourage your child to take a scholarship like that if you happen to have a half-billion dollars, but what I also think? Is that here is a young black male who is earning his way in the world already, and he's getting criticised for it because of who his dad is. Which... I thought we were a bit beyond those days. But maybe not.
What on earth to make of this news story, I have no clue.
