Being Caucasian Doesn’t Make Me Racist

Luke Pomranke,

I feel that I always need to be careful about what I say so that I am not accused of being racist. At times, I will make the exact same comment as someone from a different race but I will be accused of being racist while the other person will not be. Whenever I am talking to someone from a different race, all I can think about is whether my next comment will offend the person I am talking to. Other students are offered many other advantages just because of their race. There are scholarships that are only given to those who are Native American, Hispanic, or African American but not for someone who is Caucasian. This shows that people of different races are given more opportunities for scholarships than Caucasians. They say that white people are being racist, while they are being racist themselves.
