The Rules for the 2011 "White Privilege" Essay Contest

Stuff Black People Don’t Like (www.sbpdl.com) announces the 2011 “White Privilege” Scholarship Contest.
While the contest is open to everyone, the writer of the winning essay must be either a high school senior or a current college student pursuing an undergraduate, master’s, or doctorate degree. 
The context of the essay must discuss what “White Privilege” means in a country governed by the principles of Black Run America (BRA).

The winning essayist will receive a scholarship of $1,500 (see below). Essays must be between 2,000 and 2,500 words and detail how “
White Privilege” has helped them navigate Black Run America (BRA), where a plethora of race-based scholarships that exclude white applicants are available.

The writer of the winning essay will submit to a DNA test (paid for by SBPDL) to prove that their European ancestry meets or exceeds 90.
Essays written by individuals whose DNA proves not to meet or exceed the 90 percent European ancestry requirement will instead be eligible for the following prizes:
·        Majority Black contestants will win a DVD copy of Remember the Titans
·        Majority Asian contestants will receive a scholarship of $250
·        Majority American Indian contestants will receive a DVD copy of Machete
You might be asking yourself what Black Run America (BRA) means. Contestants should consult this link to learn about BRA to decide how best to organize an essay on what “White Privilege” means in a society dedicated to the advancement of racial minorities, particularly Black people.
Academia pushes the concept of “White Privilege,” hosting conferences across the nation that peddle this concept that purportedly has all white people benefiting from nothing more than the color of their skin to the detriment and exclusion of non-whites.

The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) gives out scholarships but seems to steer them to family members without fail.

The Gates Millennium Scholarship, funded by a $1 billion gift from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, curiously omitted “white” or “Caucasian” as a choice on Section 9 of its application form where the applicant was required to specify his or her race or ethnicity (the application is available here).

That white students (K through 12) are already a minority in most major American cities and in many states — consult this recent study by The Brookings Institute for more information — should serve as a reminder that academia will always blame white students for the failures of minorities (though Asians are doing fine) even as white students become a dwindling portion of the overall population.

A note on anonymity: SBPDL will announce only the winner’s school so that his or her identity is protected. To be eligible, essays must be submitted through a .edu e-mail account.
Essays are due on or before June 1, 2011. Submit essays to SBPDL1@gmail.com. Direct further questions to the same e-mail account.
SBPDL will announce the winning essay on June 10.
All donations to SBPDL received between now and June 1, 2011, will go towards the $1,500 scholarship amount offered in hopes of raising even more money than what we are offering.
