"I contend that we are the finest race in the world and that the more of the world we inhabit the better it is for the human race. Just fancy those parts that are at present inhabited by the most despicable specimens of human beings what an alteration there would be if they were brought under Anglo-Saxon influence, look again at the extra employment a new country added to our dominions gives."
- Cecil Rhodes, 1902 (extract from last will and testament)
The Yardie Skeptics turn their attention to the most prestigious international scholarship - the Rhodes Scholarship - this Sunday, August 31st at 12:30pm EDT (11:30am Jamaica time) to ask the unthinkable; is it time to abandon the Rhodes Scholarship? The endowment for this scholarship comes directly from the exploitative venture of Rhode's mining company in South Africa, where it was well known that Rhodes fully supported British imperialism on account of inherent white supremacy. Why is it then that this scholarship is so celebrated given it's very dark history? Should scholars from former British colonies turn down these scholarships in the future out of respect, or should they accept and convert the proceeds into a force for positive change?

These students will share how they heard about the scholarship for which they received and the requirements necessary to apply for such a scholarship. These students also will inform us how the scholarship has benefitted them in school and if the scholarship is renewable.
