Racist? University of Cambridge and Stormzy Scholarships – Black Only Students


Grime rapper Stormzy and The University of Cambridge have launched a black-only scholarship for prospective students totalling £18,000 per-year: 

We are pleased to announce that Stormzy is this year offering two scholarships to black UK students who are admitted to the University of Cambridge in autumn 2018.

For 2018-19 the total award to each student for the year will be worth £18,000.

To be eligible for a Stormzy Scholarship, applicants must Have ‘Black African’, ‘Black Caribbean’, or ‘Black Other’ ethnicity.

Cambridge obviously feels that racism is now ok, as long as its only directed towards people who are not “Black African’, ‘Black Caribbean’, or ‘Black Other’ ethnicity”. The University must have forgotten a small piece of legislation called “Equality Act: 2010” which replaced the Race Relations Act.

Stormzy states:

‘..if funding is one of the barriers, then we can work towards breaking that barrier down.’

However, he isn’t offering students scholarships based on social class or community he is offering them based on skin colour and ethnic origin.

The University of Cambridge is one of the biggest EU and ECHR champions, almost as gospel. The University has been infiltrated by the ‘PC Brigade’ in the last few years; they seem to have forgotten the provisions Anti-Discriminations of Article 14 of ECHR:

The enjoyment of the rights and freedoms set forth in this European Convention on Human Rights shall be secured without discrimination on any ground such as sex, race, colour, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, association with a national minority, property, birth or other status.

On the other hand, who are we to determine what people fund with their own money..
