You are correct. Coach Ereng shows up in El Doret with US taxpayer provided scholarships & no doubt ---- despited NCAA regulations, he holds tryouts. How much kickback he's getting is TBD. Can you imagine showing up in El Doret w/a full-scholarship in-hand? A Messiah!
Classless piece of self-righteous white garbage you are.
It's one thing to have issues with the WCAP, or foreign athletes in the NCAA on the basis of "principle" - while there are certain arguments that have merit ( such as service requirements or academic standards, even if I don't agree with them) I don't know how anyone can consider saying essentially that "foreigners are taking money that should go to 'muricans" to be a "principle" - it's just a myopic, distorted and self-serving excuse to be a bigot.
Because in your case that's all it amounts to. It's Africans that are your target - you wouldn't subject us to the stench of your bigotry if it were people from other places in those situations. But...Of course it's the black African trying to cheat the system to get other black Africans in, and you in your noble whiteness need to expose the truth.
There is a discussion to be had about who might be more deserving, a local kid or someone from a much different background. I'll say here that I am on the side that educational opportunities should be made more equitably accessible to people who may be underprivileged - another poster mentioned how difficult this is, unfortunately, but I can accept that others would have different priorities. But there's nothing constructive or redeeming in what you say.
In any truly open, forward thinking society there exists mechanisms and avenues to allow qualified people to improve themselves and improve their lot. The WCAP is supposed to be one of those paths. The fact that it exists is the kind of principle that should be what a good country is based on, and this principle already extends to many other areas. And I'm glad that it does, and that is serves to show what a low specimen of existence you are.
